The Nose Knows: Matters of the Sun

On the day of the wedding, Marguerite spent a couple of hours in the morning at the resort's different pools. I swear I slathered her with sunblock but her nose still ended up a little burnt. I noticed this in the van going to the church. I kept on fussing and fretting about it "Does your nose hurt? Does it feel hot? Is it sore? Blah blah blah?" She got bored with that and finally told me, "It's working!" Well, okay then.

Anyway, in relation to this, I saw a product featured on Fox News Extra that measures the sunscreen protection you're receiving. It's a wristband that changes color when it's time for you to reapply sunscreen. How it works is you apply sunscreen on your skin and the band, which is made of a material that is sensitive to the sun's UV rays. Generally speaking, application should be done every two hours, but it's easy to lose track of time when you're out and having fun. Have you heard of this or even tried it?
