In order to maintain healthy skin, one must be preventative as appose to simply reactive, which is why L'Oreal and designer Yves Béhar have teamed up to offer consumers a wearable UV sensor, dubbed, UVSense, that hopes to lower the risk of skin cancer.

This revolutionary technology was released at this year's CES conference in Las Vegas, and serves as a simple and unobtrusive alternative to others of its kind. The device, which is only nine millimeters in diameter, was designed to be stuck on one's thumbnail, as that space receives "optimal sunlight." A connected app will then inform users of when they've been exposed for too long, reminding them to find some shade, in addition to providing valuable insight into preventative skin care.
