Personalised UV alerts app highlights sunburn hotspots
Unsure what level of sunscreen protection you should be using? Check out My UV Alert, a free iPhone app that promises to let you know when and how much suncream to slap on.
First, set up your personal UV profile by answering a short set of questions to determine your skin type and identify your personal UV risk level. The app is then able to determine your UV profile and can tell you exactly what SPF you should be applying.
The app, developed by suncare experts La Roche-Posay, sends out location-specific push alerts on the UV level in your area, tailored to your skin type. It advises when levels are high and reminds you to apply and re-apply sun protection.
You also receive localised weather forecasts and UV level warnings.
My UV Alert is available via the App Store here.
The La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL range offers the highest sun protection from both UVB and UVA rays, and comes in a variety of formulas and SPFs for all skin types including the most sensitive skins.
