How They Work

Step 1: Apply Sticker or Band

Peel sticker from its backing and apply firmly to the back of hand or secure wristband on wrist with printed side up leaving enough space to insert 2 fingers.

Step 2: Apply Sunscreen

Apply sunscreen liberally and evenly to the skin and sticker or wristband following exact directions on the sunscreen label. For best results, sunscreen should dry for 15 minutes before getting wet.

Step 3: Reminder to Reapply

When the sticker begins to turn blue or the wristband begins to turn red, this is your reminder to reapply sunscreen. Reapply to skin and sticker at the same time following the exact directions on your sunscreen label. When sunscreen is reapplied to the sticker, it will change back to its original color.

Step 4: Additional Reapplication

Reapply sunscreen as needed following step #3 above. After one days use, gently peel sticker off of the skin or remove wristband by pulling narrow end out of slot and then pull through the top hole and recycle.
