[prMac.com] St. Paul, Minnesota - "As an avid runner and someone who just loves hanging out at the beach, I'm in the sun all the time. It can be easy to forget to reapply sunscreen, so I trust nevus to make sure my skin is always protected when I'm enjoying time outdoors working out or just playing." - Tina Snyder, nevus user
Runners, tennis players, golfers and every outdoor sports fan knows that skin care is crucial when spending so much time in the sun. That's why so many rely on nevus the mobile app developed by Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Malinee Saxena.
The Sun Alarm included with the app provides a GPS-based UV index that indicates when and how often to apply sunscreen, and the app also includes a Sunscreen Visualizer that explains the correct amount of sunscreen to use per body area. nevus also provides information concerning products and tips about skin care from Dr. Saxena.
nevus was originally developed by Dr. Saxena as a way for her patients to watch their moles and lesions over time for changes that might suggest a possible skin cancer. The app has a Skin Record feature that allows the user to take photographs of suspicious spots on their skin.
"We don't want anyone to have to limit their passion for outdoor sports, but it's even more important for fitness buffs and athletes to practice "safe sun" as well as keep an eye on their moles," said Dr. Saxena. "With summer approaching, nevus is an easy way to keep skin care in your pocket!"
