TRACK & FIELD

Two years af­ter the launch of La Roche-Posay’s free My UV Patch—a wear­able skin sen­sor that mon­i­tored your sun ex­po­sure by chang­ing colour—comes UV Sense. It’s bat­teryfree and small enough to be worn on a thumb­nail, where it will re­ceive op­ti­mal sun­light and send all the data to the ac­com­pa­ny­ing app that will tell you when you’re get­ting UV ex­po­sure— in the hope that you’ll ei­ther ap­ply/ reap­ply sun­screen or just seek shade. Look for it in 2019, when it will be re­leased glob­ally.

MASK AP­PEAL

De­spite their seem­ingly un­end­ing pop­u­lar­ity, sheet masks are not the most user-friendly treat­ment; they’re cold, wet and messy, and they rarely fit well. In­tent on im­prov­ing that ex­pe­ri­ence is Foreo UFO ($349)—a hand­held de­vice that comes with two kinds of cir­cu­lar serum-soaked sheet masks that clip onto the gad­get—billed as the first “smart mask treat­ment.” As you glide it over your face, the 90-sec­ond pro­ce­dure be­gins with heat (to open up pores), is fol­lowed by three types of LED light (red for build­ing col­la­gen, green for bright­en­ing and blue for killing acne bac­te­ria) and Foreo’s trade­marked T-sonic pul­sa­tions and fin­ishes with cold to seal the in­gre­di­ents in.
