La Roche-Posay has recently launched a new, innovative system with the purpose of increasing awareness around the effects of sun exposure and protecting our skin from the harmful UV rays.
I’m talking about “My UV Patch”, the first-of-its kind stretchable electronic, transparent adhesive that stretches and can be applied directly to any area of the skin. Measuring approximately one square inch in area and half the thickness of an average strand of hair – the patch contains photosensitive dyes which change colour when exposed to UV rays to indicate varying levels of sun exposure. Use the patch and app together to understand your personalised levels of exposure and get tips about how to play safe in the sun.
How it works:
1. Scan the patch to get up-to-date data on your level of UV exposure.
2. Receive feedback on your level of risk and personalised sun safety tips.
3. Use in conjunction with a high SPF suncream to protect yourself in the sun.
