…get some color
Scottish researchers working for a Swedish company (suncare, an international affair) have created a new form of sun protection–a disposable bracelet that changes from yellow to pink when your skin has had enough.
Basically, it’s like an egg timer, but instead of measuring time, it measures your risk of skin cancer.
The bracelet reacts to the amount of UV radiation it’s exposed to. Yellow, you’re good. Pink, time to head towards the shade.
I know what you’re thinking. I already wear sunscreen, reapply obsessively, and keep to the shadows, isn’t that enough? Of course not.
And don’t worry, fair skinned ones, the bracelets come in different shades, as in skin shades. From dark to fair, you can have your very own melanoma band.
I can only hope for 2WC’s sake that it comes in “nearly-transparent.”
