AS THE WEATHER warms up there’s noth­ing quite like boat­ing in the sun, but some­times it’s easy to for­get so­lar pro­tec­tion and the fact that UV rays are dam­ag­ing to our skin (even when the sun it­self isn’t too ob­vi­ous). This is where UVLens can help. Sim­ply turn on your ge­olo­ca­tion and a clock will show the UV risks through­out the day. And if you in­put your skin type, eye colour and hair colour, the

app will in­di­cate whether you are cur­rently safe in the sun. You can also in­put an ac­tiv­ity you are plan­ning (walk­ing, swim­ming, sun­bathing, etc.) and the app can tell you how long you will be safe in the sun and you can even set re­minders to reap­ply sun pro­tec­tion. Cool... UVLens is free and avail­able from both the App Store and Google Play.
