For many people, wearing sunscreen when going outdoors is a normal thing. That’s because the human skin needs protection against the harmful rays of the sun. However, experts are now saying that we should also wear sunscreen even if we are staying indoors.

With the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, many people are homebound. Most are working from home since many businesses and establishments have shut down to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus. Since many are staying indoors, most people do not feel the need to wear sunblock.

Interestingly, the harmful rays of the sun can penetrate windows and glass, and so experts are urging everyone to wear sunscreen even if they do not plan to go outside and are just spending most of their waking hours within the confines of their homes.

“Standard glass windows block UVB but not UVA rays, which can penetrate deeper into the skin than UVB [rays], [and] are the main contributing factor to photo-aging — which are changes seen as dark spots, wrinkles, and leathery textured skin,” California-based dermatologist Joyce Park recently told Allure.
