We know that the suns rays can cause skin damage and increase our risk of skin cancer. However, the beaches and poolsides are still packed with people laying out in the sun. Brave? Stupid? Well, at least you could monitor your UV rays and make sure you don’t stay out too long.
La Roche-Posay has come out with a product that can monitor your UV uptake, the My UV Patch ($30). This stick-on UV monitor uses a smartphone app to provide personalized sun exposure info in real time. You can either buy it individually, or get it free with the purchase of these Anthelios sunscreens. Video of the My UV Patch in action after the break.
