It’s summertime once more in Minnesota. The sun is high in the summer sky, barbecue is on the grill, and it’s time to start thinking about taking the great American road trip. Even if you can’t take off across the countryside, most of us try to take at least one trip to the lake while the weather is still nice.


Before you head out, it’s a good idea to think about grabbing some sunscreen. But did you know you’re just as susceptible to summer sun in your car as you are on the beach? Read on to learn how our team of automotive window tinting experts at Sun Control of Minnesota offers a perfect solution for protecting your family while you’re on the road.


The Risk of UV Rays on Your Skin

Even if you haven’t thought about sun protection through the long winter, it doesn’t take much to get burned when the summer comes around. When you head out on a Minnesota lake, you’re always sure to grab your sun protection essentials like sunglasses, a hat, and sunblock.


But what most people don’t realize is that the entire time they’re riding in a car, they’re most likely getting exposed to damaging UV rays. You wouldn’t spend ten minutes in the open sun without sunblock, but your entire family may be exposed to direct sunlight for two hours or more on the road to the lake. That means by simply riding in the car, you’re exposing yourselves to risk of sunburn, premature aging, and even cancer.


The Protection of 3M Window Films

By installing a protective window film to your vehicle, you’re able to protect your family from both UVA and UVB rays. It’s a common misconception that sun protection requires dark window tint. In fact, 3M automotive window films block out 99 percent of UV rays no matter how light or dark the film is.


That means it’s better than most sunscreens when it comes to protecting your family from cancer and sunburns. It can also help reduce the heat inside your vehicle, keeping your smaller passengers in the back seat more comfortable while you’re driving in the summer heat.
