Jun 12, 2008
According to the scientific reports, the ultraviolet radiation that is prevalent in the sunrays causes certain disorders in the skin that might damage the individual's overall health.

But however, few high-end brands make use of the glass lenses as they deliver huge clarity with out distortion.

At the same time, the sun block hats are created in such a way that they completely cover head and several face parts from the sunlight. Some are even designed to cover the nape. These are found helpful during certain outdoor activities.

Apart fro the individual protection which needs to wear the sun protective materials and apparels, the house also needs to be stuffed with certain ornaments that offer protection from the sun. Blinds or curtains can be used on the glass windows to restrain the sunlight while it is sunny. The house also needs to have proper insulation and ventilation so that the heat dissipated undergoes through insulation.
