It’s the summer, which means we are all dreaming of at least one beach getaway. With that comes the responsibility of taking care of your body at the beach. Now my farer skinned friends may well know the horror of being sunburned. However, I myself have gotten sunburned as well. I know, I was shocked too. I figured having melanin meant I was a part of a club that didn’t need to worry about such things. Although I always wore sunblock naturally, there are moments where I may forget and the sun would scorch my nose, chest, neck etc…just horrible. Enter Spinali Design, a French start-up has come up with what they call the “bikini connecté” (The Connected Bikini). The swimwear features a removable and waterproof UV sensor that measures exactly when sun cream should be applied or re-applied. How cool. Ladies, finally you can wake up out of your drunken sun soaked sleep and re-apply the sunscreen before you regret it later. Final Word: Smart bikini’s for smart ladies, happy sunbathing!
