Sunburn Bracelets

The UV SunSense Tells You When to Reapply Sunscreen

— May 30, 2010 — Fashion
The UV SunSense is the perfect solution to those who always seem to get sunburned even when they apply sunscreen. The bracelet works by actually applying sunscreen to it--once you've lathered yourself, of course. Once the bracelet changes color, it means your skin needs a new coat of protection.

The UV SunSense bracelet not only tells you when to reapply (by turning brown, FYI) but it also turns pink when it thinks you've had enough sun for the day. The UV Sunsense is actually a really smart idea, especially for those with fair skin who burn easily--like me.
Trend Themes
1. Smart Sunscreen Bracelets - Sunscreen application and reapplication becomes smarter with bracelets that change colors indicating information about exposure and protection.
2. Wearable Sun Protection Solutions - Advanced technology and materials create protective wearable devices for those exposed to the harmful effects of the sun's rays.
3. Personalized UV Monitoring Devices - Smart sensors and wearable devices provide personalized data on UV exposure, helping people avoid sunburn and other health issues.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion and Wearables - Smart wearables integrating with sun protectors are disrupting the fashion industry by offering stylish and practical solutions for skin protection while under the sun.
2. Healthcare - Personalized UV monitoring devices are disrupting healthcare industry by providing easy-to-use tools for early detection of skin problems related to overexposure to the sun.
3. Cosmetics and Personal Care - Smart sunscreen bracelets are disrupting the cosmetic and personal care industry by providing innovative products that can help maximize the effect of sun protection products while minimizing the risk of sunburn and overexposure.
