Protect Against UV-Induced Aging with Things Like Panel Glide Blinds


What does the sun do to the skin when the latter is overexposed to its rays? Tan it? Burn it? Darken it? The answer to all of those is a yes, and they could bring several dermatological issues to the surface. Some people may think that living a pretty reclusive lifestyle (i.e. rarely venturing outside to stay out of the sun’s reach) can offer top-notch protection from sun-induced skin damage. Sadly, staying out of the sun’s reach by spending most of your time inside your home doesn’t really protect you the way you might think.

Effect of UV Rays on Skin

In truth, you are not entirely safe from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays even if you’re indoors. When temperatures drop and the sunlight may seem less intense, you might think UV rays have died down: they didn’t. The amount of UV radiation remains very strong all throughout, even during cooler weather. Moreover, if you think all UV could do to your skin is get you sunburnt, you’re mistaken: it can actually make you look older.

Panel Glide Blinds: Effective Penny-Pinching on your Electricity Bills


Queensland’s electricity providers are charging four times as much as those in Victoria, even twice as much as providers in the entire U.K, as per a report commissioned by UnitingCare Australia.

The report, produced by Melbourne-based energy economics consultancy firm Carbon and Energy Markets, stated that network charges accounted for more or less half of the average consumer’s energy bill in all National Energy Market areas except Victoria. Ergon Energy in Queensland has the highest network charge at around 20 cents per kWh.
