We all know how important it is to take care of our skin. Not only through a proper skin-care routine but also in the sun. I am a firm believer on slapping on the sun-cream, sitting in the shade and avoiding the harsh 3 o'clock sun. I, for one do not want leather looking skin and want to do my very best to protect myself from skin cancer.  It's time to get serious.


When Smartsun UK offered to send me a sample of their UV indicator wrist bands, I could not pass the opportunity up. What a great idea.  A one-use intelligent wrist band that measures the amount of UV radiation you are exposed to over the course of the day, which changes colour:

Yellow - Unused.
Beige - Reapply sunscreen.
Pink - Stay out of the sun.

The wristband, when used alongside a high SPF sun-cream can help to avoid sunburn, it even works in the sea and the swimming pool and is suitable for everyone. 

To use, simply put on the wrist band and apply suncream to both your body and the band, even when you reapply.

I will be taking these with me to Kos at the end of the month, I am excited to see how they work. Whether or not you decide to try these, let's all be safe in the sun and remember our SPF. I would love to know what you think of this idea, I think it's fantastic.
