Summer is in full swing in the UK, right now we are experiencing a heatwave! It's always important to stay safe in warmer weather and protect your skin. Rates of skin cancer are increasing faster than any other cancer in the UK so it's always important to apply sunscreen, most people apply sunscreen but forget or think they won't need to reapply during the day. The Smartsun's UV indicator is a great way to keep track on if you need to reapply sun lotion or stay out of the sun completely.
What is it? The UV indicator is designed to help people stay safe in the Sun, its a wristband that can be worn on children to adults, on beaches, in the sea, outdoors etc.
How does it work? The wristband measures the amount of UV radiation you are exposed to over the course of the day. After applying sunscreen, apply some to the wristband as well. The band changes colours according to the amount of UV radiaction your are exposed to, yellow its safe, beige its time to apply more sun lotion, pink means stay out the Sun!
