Protecting your family from harmful UVA/UVB rays is always important, but it's even more important when summer rolls around. The days are longer, the sun is hotter, and we spend much more time outside than we would during the colder months. All of these things add up and make it difficult to always stay fully protected.
Whether you end up sweating off sunscreen that just isn't as waterproof as you hoped, or forget to reapply sunscreen altogether, there's an innovation from La Roche-Posay that can benefit the whole family: the MY UV PATCH. La Roche-Posay, an international leader in sun safety, has launched the first-ever stretchable wearable patch connected to an app to track your UV exposure, and to learn more about your sun behavior.
The MY UV PATCH can be worn for up to three days by children and adults to help track UVA/UVB ray absorption so you know when to reapply sunscreen and embrace sun safe behavior. Combined with the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Clear Skin Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60 and La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dermo-Kids Sunscreen SPF 60, you’ve got a foolproof plan to dodge harmful sun damage for the whole family this summer. While both are water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with the CELL-OX SHIELD® filtering system, each formula is targeted to different skin type needs, so everyone is covered!
If you have oily skin or are reluctant to wearing sunscreen, Anthelios Clear Skin is a go-to choice because it absorbs pore-clogging oil, even in heat and humidity. That means it won’t feel greasy on your skin and won’t cause breakouts! When it comes to the kiddos, La Roche-Posay focuses on what is included in their formulas, as well as what's not included. Anthelios Dermo-Kids, a gentle sunscreen lotion, was developed with dermatologists and tested by pediatricians to be a safe formula for children’s sensitive skin.
How to apply the MY UV PATCH:
- Open the package to remove the patch from inside the instruction manual.
- Carefully and slowly remove the white sheet (the patch is inside!) by holding on the two tabs together to prevent any wrinkling of the patch.
- Place the patch with the silver part facing up onto a clean and sun exposed area of your skin (for example, your wrist or arm).
- Press and hold down the patch for at least 30 seconds.
- Carefully and slowly remove the silver sheet by lifting up the right tab first.
- Press the patch firmly down to secure it.
- Scan the patch using the MY UV PATCH app.
The MY UV PATCH is made to help monitor your daily UV exposure so you know when to reapply sunscreen and embrace sun safe behavior.
The La Roche-Posay Anthelios Clear Skin Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60 helps protect skin without feeling greasy or clogging pores, while the Anthelios Dermo-Kids Sunscreen SPF 60 is perfect for active little ones, thanks to a water-resistant formula that’s gentle for children’s sensitive skin.
