We want to tell you all about Sundicators and our mission. We were created by Pretty Pale, Inc. Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Organization in 2012 for it’s fundraising and education benefit. Pretty Pale was inspired by Celebrity Fashion and Beauty Expert Kerry Lynn Spindler who is also a Melanoma Survivor. Pretty Pale is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization and dedicates its resources and time to skin cancer and melanoma awareness efforts.
Sundicators are Patented, unisex sunscreen reminder wristbands that remind the wearer when it’s time to re-apply sunscreen before sun damage can cause irreversible and sometimes fatal damage to the skin.
Why Use Sundicators?
The sun’s rays make us feel good, and in the short term even make us look good, too. But our love affair with the sun is a one-way street as the sun giveth, and the sun taketh away. As we get older, prolonged sun exposure causes wrinkles and age spots. And though many in the younger generations think other sun-related diseases like skin cancer and Melanoma only impact older folks, they actually affect people of all ages…and they’re on the rise.
A great number of us also mistakenly associate glowing complexions with good health. Unfortunately, the coloring our skin attains from sun exposure-or from inside a tanning booth-actually accelerates the effects of aging and increases our risk of developing skin cancer.
Sun Exposure Accelerates Skin Changes
In fact, sun exposure accelerates most of the skin’s changes that we assume are just a normal part of aging. Over time the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages elastin, which are fibers in the skin. When these fibers break down the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to return into place. The skin also bruises and tears more easily while taking longer to heal. So while skin damage might not be apparent when you’re young, it will definitely show later in life.
Sundicators UV Monitoring Wristbands are UVA and UVB gauges that help prevent sunburn and skin damage by reminding you either when to re-apply sunscreen, or when to seek shade. Sundicators are our latest innovation in skin-wellness technology. They work hard to shield you against sunburn, sun damage and the effects of anti-aging. They’re attractive, child friendly, unisex and easily fit into the most active of outdoor lifestyles!
