We all know that applying (and reapplying) sunscreen is super important to stay safe in the sun. But it sort of takes the fun out of a relaxing trip to the beach or a lazy day by the pool when you’re constantly monitoring your watch, timing your sunscreen applications like a science, right?

Sure, we’re supposed to reapply sunscreen every two hours to stay safe in the sun, but according to the Skin Cancer Foundation’s 2008 study, only 28% of us actually do so. But with the help of Coppertone’s new MyUV Alert™ iPhone application, making sure you reapply sunscreen is easier than ever.

This new app helps you manage your individualized sun protection needs by alerting you when you need to reapply SPF. You can also stay up to date with forecasts of the local UV index wherever it is you choose to soak in the sun by downloading the app.

Now you have no excuse not to reapply your sunscreen, my beauties. So grab your iPhone or iPod touch, download the free app, and get back to those rays of sunshine!
