SunSense ONE

Step 1: Decide your your skin type (a number from 1 to 6)

OPTION 1
We recommend that you download 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 ONE manual (PDF).

Step 2:  Decide your maximum UV dose

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: Wearing the sensor

Clip SunSense One on 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 (front surface) is directed as much as possible towards the sun.

Step 4: Check your received dose

Check from time to time your UV dose in the sensor display. Is your display reading getting close to your maximum UV dose, decided in Step 2? Then it´s time to put on clothes, or get out of the sun - otherwise, you´re risking a sun burn.
