Most of us keep a careful eye on our general health. Though the skin is our largest organ, besides taking regular showers and keeping our skin clean, few of us pay attention to our skin health.
The dangers of UV radiation and the role it plays in aging, wrinkling of the skin and skin cancer are well known, and measuring the extent of our exposure can help us to limit the damage. UVA rays can even penetrate clouds and glass, so we generally tend to underestimate the extent of our exposure.
The La Roche-Posay My Skin Track UV Sensor from L’Oréal is a wearable device that makes it easy to keep track of our skin health. It is a compact device that can be easily clipped to our clothing or bag and can be used to measure and track our personal exposure to ultraviolet radiations. The device comes with a companion app that also provides information on pollution, pollen, and humidity, based on our location, and provides personalized tips to help keep our skin in great shape. Instead of Bluetooth, it uses NFC to transmit its data, and hence it does not need a battery. It is waterproof as well.
For those who use an iOS device, it is possible to integrate the UV data into Apple’s HealthKit. The app also comes with shortcuts to purchase skincare products from L’Oréal’s skincare brand La Roche-Posay.
The sensor is available at Apple Stores in the US and on its website. The companion app is available for both iOS and Android.
