Skin experts recommend slathering on SPF early and often to protect from harmful rays. As many times as our dermatologists drill this in our heads, however, we admit to occasionally forgetting to reapply as often as we should. Thankfully, we found a simple reminder: SpaFinder’s “I Will Reflect” bracelet.

This cute little number is only $4.95 and has an adjustable strap so it can fit all wrist sizes. It starts off as a light white color, then darkens to purple when you’re exposed to harmful UVA/UVB rays. Once it turns dark purple, you’ll know it’s time to reapply sunscreen or head indoors.

The bracelets are part of a national campaign by SpaFinder to promote awareness about early melanoma detection and prevention. More tips and articles about skin safety can be found on their website, and you can order a bracelet of your own here.

Now tell us: How do you stay safe in the sun?
