Geek of the Week: My UV Patch

With Summer beach season here, its also Summer sunburn season. The folks and Loreal have come up with smart patch that you wear on your hand or your arm and it can tell you when you need to apply more sunscreen. The patch is printed with special inks that change color when exposed to UV rays. Use the My UV Patch app to take a picture of the patch on your skin, then the app analyzes the slight color changes in the patch and tells you when to reapply.

The patch is a sticker that will stay put on your skin for up to 3 days (through showers, swimming, sunscreening, and sleeping).  The patch comes free with the purchase of Loreal Anthelios Sunscreen, and you get 2 when you buy the kids formula. Get yours at Walgreens, CVS, Target, and ULTA.

The app is free for iPhone and Android...(the bottles of sunscreen are not free).
