La Roche-Posay has created a tattoo gadget, the UV patch, so they can know how much sun exposure their skin receives and remind them when they have it. "

Photoprotection starts from childhood and damages from excess solar radiation are Drag along and can double the risk of developing skin cancer, especially melanomas, "says Dr. Magdalena de Troya Martín, Head of the Dermatology Service at the Costa del Sol Hospital in Malaga. In this sense, the practices should be avoided under the sun in the hours of greatest damage and at times when the limit of ultraviolet (UV) radiation is high. The chemistry Carolina Rodriguez, adds that "the luck is that melanomas are visible and, by extension, can be seen and scanned." They are generally asymmetric polka dots with irregular borders, of various colors, with a diameter of more than six millimeters and present an evolution in size and shape. The bus that promotes the campaign will cover 32 cities in the Spanish geography to train 10,000 children from 130 Schools and associations to help children through didactic activities and informative talks.

One of the spaces is specially dedicated to the emblematic product of this year, the patch My UV Patch, so you can try it and know what its benefits. It is a technological device designed in the form of elastic and ultra thin adhesive, as if it were the same skin, that works connected to a Smartphone application.

To protect the epidermis from pigmentation problems, photoaging and, what is worse, skin cancer, calculates the solar radiation that receives the skin and offers advice on the most suitable product for the user. How does it work? The heart-shaped patch is composed of squares of different shades of blue and white containing photosensitive dyes that change color with exposure to the sun. In this way, it allows the mobile application to calculate the amount of UV rays that the person receives and provides personalized information thanks to user data: phototype, skin type, location and time. In addition, the application has an augmented reality avatar for children to have fun learning about the importance of photoprotection. It is recommended to stick it in the back of the hand and, above all, it is important to apply a protective cream, as if it were a part of the skin, 15 minutes before exposing us to the sun to accurately measure the degree of UV rays that we are receiving . "

In Spain, we usually have a very clear skin, so we recommend the use of a high sun protection. A good coat should be applied and re-applied every hour and a half or two hours because the body sweats Brown," says Rodríguez. When scanning the patch with the mobile, the application takes into account the location and time of day to accurately examine the power of the sun's rays. It can be used for up to three days at the pool, beach, while playing sports and in the shower.
