From UV Ray Rings to Sun Damage Detection Apps

These sun safety accessories are tools that let you have your fun in the summer weather while helping to prevent the body from the perils of skin cancer.

Sunscreen and parasols are no longer the only ways to guard against harmful UV rays. With these physical barriers acting as preventative measures, technology has progressed so that there are widely accessible detection measures that the public can experiment with. It is now possible for your bikini to let you know whether you have been exposed to the sun for too long. The 'smart' swimsuit has a UV meter attached to its belt.

With jewelry spanning bracelet, charm, and ring options that boast the same self-monitoring feature, there are more alarms than ever that can be set to actively defend against skin cancer.
