Now that it's been summer for almost a month, many people have already spent a significant time outdoors and face the dangers that go along with it. According to SCNow.com, extra attention should be paid to the sun rays over the next few weeks, as July is UV Awareness Month.

These harmful rays can cause substantial damage to one's skin and eyes and the the new source recommends some important steps people can take to avoid the peril of possible pitfalls. When it comes to eyes, experts recommend choosing sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of UV-A and UV-B rays. This goes for those who wear contact lenses, too, even if they have UV protection.

Contrary to popular belief, staying indoors does not completely protect you from sun. Skin and eyes can still suffer the negative effects of bright rays. Industry analysts suggest hanging blackout roller shades to solve the problem.

"When the sun's rays are at their strongest, furniture and art can fade from damaging UV rays, and eyestrain and headaches can result from squinting at glare on computer screens. Blackout roller shades provide relief from the heat and from the sun," says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet.
