Smart SPF: Techie Sun Protection

Posted by Bikini Owner in smart spf

Staying in the shade and slathering yourself in sunscreen are two healthy skin habits that have been so ingrained in our minds that it's nearly impossible to forget them.

There are those days, however, when you get caught up chatting, or have one too many glasses of rosé, and it's too late to save your skin because you're already over-sunned. It's this exact predicament that new, tech-forward innovations aim to eliminate, from smartly engineered fabrics that build in sun protection to futuristic tech solutions that remind you when it's time to re-apply.

Spinali, based in France, has developed a microchip UV sensor, built into their swimsuits and towels, that syncs with their intiutive app to send alerts when it's time for you to re-up on the sunscreen. Cover, based in Dallas, TX, manufactures swimsuits and clothing crafted from their propietary Protec jersey, which blocks 98% of UV rays. Stylish gear that saves your skin? Sign us up.
