An Australian woman has called out a group of Americans who weren’t aware the sun visor in your car can be turned to block light from streaming through the driver side window.

Dermatologist Dr Alexis Stephens, who lives in Florida, took to TikTok to share her surprise at discovering the secret ‘skincare revelation’ in her vehicle.

‘Ummmm am I the only person who didn’t know their car sun visor extends?!? Better late than never. My hyperpigmentation prone skin will take all the additional sun protection I can get from this south Florida sun,’ she wrote.

Plenty of the skincare guru’s followers online said they’d also never flipped the sun visor around, thanking her for doing them a service with her announcement.

‘NEVER knew it extends! Much appreciated,’ one fan wrote.

‘Nope, didn’t even know it until now. Thanks for sharing,’ said another.

But not everyone was so ‘enlightened’ by the news, with Aussie skincare expert Leigh Campbell reposting the video with the caption: ‘Wait is there really a generation that didn’t know this?’

Another Aussie weighed in: ‘Not every car has this ability but those that do are super helpful. I’m sort of surprised this wasn’t common knowledge?’

Last month Australians took the time to mock their American counterparts for seemingly only just discovering that electric kettles exist.

But not everyone was so ‘enlightened’ by the news, with Aussie skincare expert Leigh Campbell reposting the video with the caption: ‘Wait is there really a generation that didn’t know this?’

It’s long been a bizarre quirk of the United States that millions refused to move with the times on the topic of electric kettles, while the UK has been enjoying the tea-creating device for more than a century.  

The New York Times recently published an article with the headline – ‘A swift and easy way to heat water without using a stove’ – sharing a list of products it recommended purchasing to make the most of the new ‘trend’.

‘Consider the electric kettle. Many models will even let you set a precise temperature – key for getting the best flavour out of your coffee or tea,’ the article continued.

Australian journalist Benjamin Law shared a screenshot of the title on Instagram with many Americans forced to defend their ‘new discovery’.

‘Kettles are a new thing there? I knew they were living in the 1940s but I didn’t know it was that bad …’ wrote one person.

‘They might even start drinking decent coffee one day,’ added another.

‘My grandparents used to destroy an electric kettle each visit to Australia, by putting it on the stove,’ explained another.

One person savagely declared: ‘All pointless, Americans are incapable of making decent tea or coffee anyway’.

‘Look, we finally got chips on our debit and credit cards. Go easy on us here,’ one said.

But some did leap to defend the American way, with one person writing: ‘The voltage doesn’t support using an electric kettle with the efficiency we enjoy in Australia. Everyone in my (American) family uses a stovetop kettle.’

The New York Times has changed the title of its article to ‘the best electric kettle’ after sighting the debate online.
