The patch monitors your sun exposure so you don’t have to

Summer isn’t over just yet, and with Labor Day around the corner, odds are you’ll be logging some beach or pool time. We all know that it’s imperative to use sunscreen, but it’s a fact that most of us don’t apply enough to get the protection stated on the bottle—and don’t re-apply often enough to properly shield our skin from UV rays. But with La Roche-Posay’s My UV Patch, you can enjoy your fun in the sun without getting burned.

Here’s how it works… Stick this ultra-thin (i.e. half the thickness of a strand of hair!) square patch on an area of sun-exposed skin and download the My UV Patch app (available for iOS and Android). In addition to the photosensitive dyes in the patch itself that indicate your level of UV exposure (and if you’re approaching dangerous levels), you can upload an image of your patch to the app at any given time to get a personalized report based on your skin type, if sunscreen was applied and the UV index at your current location.

Designed to be worn for up to three days, the patch is sweat- and water-resistant, and it even stays put while swimming. And best of all, it’s FREE when you purchase any La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunscreen through La Roche-Posay’s website or one of their key physicians. 

We think this is the must-have accessory for Labor Day weekend, so slap it on when you get to your destination and enjoy the long weekend!
