What: UV SunSense wristbands, $6 for 7
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 or beach volleyball that I’ll miss a sunscreen application and turn as red as a lobster. Luckily, the advent of the UV SunSense wristband makes sunburn easier than ever to prevent.
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 re-application.
It’s a subtle, smart accessory that allows me to take my mind off sunscreen and get it back in that heated volleyball game.
