Here's a sneak peek at a very cool bit of beauty tech.
@larocheposay_za recently sent me #MyUVPatch – a digital breakthrough innovation aimed at changing bad sun habits into life-saving one.
MY UV PATCH, is the first connected UV patch that educates you on how to play safe in the sun by measuring sun exposure. It works by using UV sensitive dyes that change colour when exposed to UV radiation, and is designed to be used in conjunction with the My UV Patch app.
The patch itself is almost like a second skin, with its flexible technology. It’s ultra thin and transparent, and its adhesive lasts up to five days. The patch is also highly water resistant and suitable for sensitive skin and children.
Users scan the patch using the My UV Patch mobile app, which analyses the varying photosensitive dyes squares to determine their UV exposure level. Through a smart algorithm factoring in the user’s personal data – phototype, skin type, location and weather data – the app generates essential information on what behaviors to adopt and even gives you personalized sunscreen recommendations.
Best of all? My UV Patch is available, while stocks last, from the month of October 2017, FREE with the purchase of any LA ROCHE POSAY Anthelios product through @dermastoresa or @skinmiles and at select @dischem_pharmacies. #MyUVPatch #SaveYourSkin
