I have heard of beads that glow in the dark and maybe even those that turn color, but I don't remember seeing beads used to alert the person wearing them to possibly harmful UV rays!
The website, UV Sol Beads, states, "The intensity of the beads' color increases with the amount of UV exposure, and the beads will remain off-white in the absence of UV light. Watch the magic as they cycle back and forth over 50,000 times!"
Additionally, "UV Sol Beads was started by a science teacher who has used these beads as a teaching tool for her students. When a friend got skin cancer, she wanted to reach more people with this simple detection device. Tie one on your body, umbrella, baby stroller, surfboard, golf bag, tennis bag, purse; anywhere that could remind you to protect your skin in the sun."
Since we've been talking about sunshiny beads and memories, I thought this would be nice to share. It is important to stay safe out in the sun while we drink up the happy health benefits!
