If there is one thing I wish everybody did everyday it would be to protect their skin from the sun. I must admit that sometimes I do forget to wear SPF and I instantly regret it and even on days when I do apply it in the mornings I always forget to reapply. I think one of the main problems that comes with Summer is knowing when to reapply suncream and this might just be the solution.
These Smartsun UV Indicator Wristbands* straight from Sweden are perfect for all ages, especially children and they let you know when you need to reapply suncream and when to stay out of the sun which I think is pretty amazing. These are perfect for the beach, sea, outdoor activities, sports. These can be worn in water so there is no need to worry as these will still work when wet!
How do they work you ask? Well, once you have applied your suncream to yourself, pop on your wristband and apply suncream to it and its ready to work! Always remember to apply suncream to yourself as these wristbands do not have SPF. Throughout the day the colour of the wristband will change to let you know, yellow means unused, beige means to reapply suncream and pink is letting you know that you should stay out of the sun. These are going to be perfect for holidays and any days out when you know you are going to be spending most of the day in the sun. As long as you pop one of these on and apply a high SPF in the morning before heading it you can relax and enjoy yourself and know just by looking at your wrist whether you need to reapply or stay out of the sun.
With skin cancer being the most popular cancer in the UK, it kills more people in the UK than Australia which is pretty shocking, I think these are a perfect way to help keep your skin protected. A pack of 5 retails for £4.99 on Amazon so for £1 a wear it is a little expensive but you can't put a price on protecting your skin I don't think!
