Driving can be more dangerous when the sun is low in the sky, as it shines into our eyes and makes traffic lights and street signs harder to see. This is especially true in the early morning and evening time, when most people are commuting to and from work. The car has a sun visor to help protect you from sunglare, but it’s too short for the times when the sun is shining through the corner of the side window, so it is difficult and stressful trying to merge onto a main road when the sun is in your eyes....
Most people apply sunscreen when they are going out into the sun but does its protection last for the whole day? Well, the effectiveness of sunscreen is reduced as we sweat, or if it is rubbed off on clothing, and even sunscreens labelled as ‘waterproof’ or ‘water resistant’ can only protect you for up to a few hours when in contact with water or sweat. It’s best to re‐apply sunscreen through the day in those conditions, and also shade your skin from the sun to add a second layer of defence against the harmful effects of UV rays.
The damage to our skin from the sun’s UV rays accumulates over time, causing premature wrinkles, sagging and even serious conditions. By reducing our exposure to the sun’s rays whenever possible, our skin will have the best chance of staying youthful.Driving in your car exposes your face and neck to the sun through the side window and the car’s sun visor doesn’t help much. But a Joopy Sun Shade clips easily to the car door and provides much needed UV protection for your face and neck.
Do you find the sun shining in your face more often these days while you're behind the wheel? Well, it's not your imagination, as the sun's path in the sky sinks lower as we approach winter, so it shines in through the side window to annoy you in the early mornings and late afternoons. A Joopy Sun Shade offers instant relief by shading your face from the side sun and makes your drive safer too by cutting sun glare when you're looking out the side window!
It's amazing to think that nearly 40% of outdoor workers still aren't properly protected from the sun in Australian workplaces, but a recent Cancer Council Australia study has shown just that. Some employers are still not fulfilling their duty of care to protect their workers from the health risks of UV radiation. For workers who spend a large part of the day behind the wheel of a vehicle, a Joopy Sun Shade goes a long way to protect the driver's face and neck from the sun's harmful UV rays.
