SPOTMYUV® is the world’s first clinically proven UV Detection Sticker… here’s what that means.
Skin care is innovative, this we already know. Whether it be the creation of new sunscreen filters or hybrid textures, the beauty world’s constantly honing on how science and skin care can intersect.
Technology in skin care continues to evolve one product at a time. The newest science in skin care is as small as a pimple patch and combines a major skin necessity with convenience and effectiveness.
SPOTMYUV® ($25.99 USD) is the world’s first clinically proven UV detection sticker that gives you a personalized reminder of when it’s time to reapply your sunscreen. As you spend time in the sun, SPOTMYUV’s® technology interacts with your sunscreen and your skin.
When first applied and adequately covered in your SPF of choice the small sticker appears clear. The patch slowly changes to a shade of purple when it’s time to reapply.
We all know how important sunscreen is and it’s just as important to make sure you reapply regularly throughout the day, especially if you’re in direct sunlight!
Why Hone In On SPF Reapplication?
A single coat of sunscreen on the body and face throughout the day won’t completely protect the skin from damage, and eventually, skin cancer.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and worldwide. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. Application and reapplication significantly lessens the chance of getting skin cancer, as having 5 or more sunburns doubles the skin’s risk for melanoma.
However, did you know people who use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher daily show 24 percent less skin aging than those who do not use sunscreen daily? And that research shows that regular use of sunscreen cuts down your chance of melanoma?
Skin cancer and signs of skin aging are preventable by using proper protection when exposed to the sun, and SPOTMYUV was designed to make that process even easier.
So, How Does It Work?
This is truly skin care in real time. Each time you cover your SPOTMYUV® sticker with sunscreen, the sticker will turn clear, helping to show you that you’re protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays. When your sunscreen wears off, SPOTMYUV® turns purple again to remind you to reapply your sunscreen.
The spots are made of three layers to react in a way that mimcs how your skin does to UV rays. A sensing layer acts just like your skin, which enables the sticker to sense the same differences between SPFs, waterproof formulations, activities, UV levels, etc. just like your skin does.
The stickers are made of hypoallergenic swim-proof adhesive and last one day. The product has been tested by collegiate athletes in and outside the water to make sure they last all day but remain kid-friendly to peel off.
The bottom line
If it’s here to protect our skin, we’re about it. Sun protection is one of the most important things we can do for our skin and our body. This product makes skin protection awareness easy and convenient, what’s not to love?
