SunSense ONE

Step 1: Find out what your skin type is
OPTION 1
We recommend that you dowload the SunSense app to take the skin type test and get access to a number of other useful features:
Sunsense app for iPhone (App Store)
Sunsense app for Android (Google Play)

OPTION 2
Use the tables provided in the manual (PDF).

Step 2: Based on your skin type and the sunscreen factor you prefer using, you can then determine your maximum UV dose. The max UV dose is the maximum amount of accumulated UV radiation your skin tolerates before getting burned.

Step 3: Clip SunSense One at the most sun-exposed area of your body (i.e.: t-shirt collar, bathing shorts pocket, bikini top, etc.) such that the sensor eye is directed as much as possible towards the sun.

Step 4: Check from time to time your UV dose. Getting close to your maximum UV dose? Then it´s time to get out of the sun, otherwise, you´re risking getting burned.
