Get Sun Smart and Save Your Skin from Sizzling

What: UV SunSense wristbands

Why: When I know I'll be spending a day in the sun, I try to take extra care of my fair skin; but, inevitably, I'll get so caught up in my barbecuing, beach volleyball or lakefront bike ride that I'll miss a sunscreen application and turn red as a lobster. Sunburn is a consequence that's painful and unsightly in the short run and downright dangerous in the long run, but luckily the advent of the UV SunSense wristband makes sunburn easier than ever to prevent.

The last time I knew I was in for some fun in the sun, I slipped on a flesh-colored wristband before lathering up with SPF 30 (the bracelet gets doused in sunscreen, too), then watched as the band turned blue when exposed to the UV rays in sunlight. Once the band faded back to its original color, I knew it was time for a sunscreen reapplication. And when it turned yellow-orange, that was my signal that my skin's time in the sun should be up for the day.

The bands are completely inconspicuous, smaller than nightclub wristbands and without all the fussy clasps. It's a subtle, smart accessory that allows me to take my mind off sunscreen and get it back in that heated volleyball game.


Price: $6 for a pack of seven
