A sticker that’ll prevent sunburn?
Now that it’s officially summer, more and more people will be headed to beaches and pools, which means plenty of hours in the sun and chances of getting a bad sunburn if they don’t use enough sunscreen.
While many of us know that putting sunscreen on just once is not enough, it isn’t always easy to remember to reapply, and even if we do remember, how do we know when’s the right time to do so. Well, apparently there are now stickers that do just that.
The company SPOTOMYUV makes stickers that are clinically proven UF detectors, and signals to those out in the sun that they are in need of more sunscreen. All folks have to do is put the sticker, which is purple when first applied, onto their skin. Once you add sunscreen, it becomes clear and blends into your skin. It then will turn purple again to signal it’s time to reapply.
The sticker can be applied anywhere on the body, and as long as you are wearing a strong enough SPF you shouldn’t have to worry about getting circular tan lines, especially if you move the sticker around every once in a while.
Did you know that a North Carolina beach was named the best beach in the country? That’s right…another North Carolina beach came in the top 10 and a South Carolina beach made the list too! According to Yahoo, Dr. Beach has come out with his 32nd annual list of the Best Beaches in the United States. His list is based on 50 different criteria, with an emphasis on safety and cleanliness. Topping the list this year is Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach in the Outer Banks area of North Carolina. He calls it his favorite beach, with “16 miles of undeveloped beach and American beach grass-covered sand dunes.”
