L’Oreal has introduced My UV Patch – the first electronic ever to help you measure how much sun you’re getting

L’Oreal, which is popular for its line of cosmetic products, unveiled this wearable piece of technology at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas in the USA. The wearable piece of tech is now making its way to South Africa.
 
Called my UV Patch, the stretchable electronic is a transparent adhesive that stretches, that you can apply directly onto any area of your skin. It measures your sun exposure with the help of a high-tech sensor.
 
The patch looks almost like a plaster. It contains photosensitive dyes that change colour when you expose it to the sun’s dangerous, skin-damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays, a L’Oreal press release read.
 
It’s stretchy and disposable, and you can wear it for up to five days, the press release added.
