UVSunSense wristbands change color depending on how long you’ve been in the sun. Each wristband starts off orange. Then after you apply sunscreen to yourself and the band, the wristband turns purple, indicating that it has been activated. When the band turns brown, it’s time for more sunscreen. Yellow warns that it’s time to get out of the sun.
We heard about UVSunSense from Kelly McInnis, who is vigilant about protecting herself from too much sun exposure (and has gorgeous skin to show for it!) and wanted to share this find with the Daily Grommet community. The creators are Bill Luisi and Jon Horovitz (on the right), two entrepreneurs who founded UVSunSense to provide an easy way for people to make sure their sunscreen is still working and help avoid sun damage. Their wristbands are meant to get wet, so you can find out right away if that last jump in the pool dissolved the last of your sunscreen. It’s so much better than discovering a nasty sunburn later on.
