Wondering When to Reapply Sunscreen? There’s an App for That

Not surprisingly, we’re huge fans of sunscreen

But we’re also the first to admit that after the first application, it gets a little tricky… when is it time to reapply? After lunch? After the next round of swimming? After just one more chapter of that mystery novel? Tough call.

Wouldn’t it be cool if your iPhone would nudge you a bit to let you know? Or maybe give you real-time UV index numbers? Well, it can.

The Sunscreen Apps

Here are a couple apps dedicated to sunburn protection. All of them link to the Apple store, showing complete descriptions and screenshots.

  • Coppertone MyUVAlert
    Offers local UV index forecasts, custom sunscreen reapplication reminders, individualized product recommendations for Coppertone products (of course), coupons and sun protection tips.
  • iSunBurn
    Gives you the UV Index for your location and any location in the United States.

Pretty cool, huh? Of course, this all depends on having quality sunscreen at the ready, so make sure you’re stocked up. Dean Essentials Skin Care is a great place to start.
