APP OF THE MONTH
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.
