Finally – someone has invented a way to achieve instant, full-body sunscreen coverage. Much like spray-tan booths, the SnappyScreen unleashes a mist of SPF protection on sunbathers, covering every nook and cranny. The days of asking “hey, could you get my back?” may soon be over.
SnappyScreen booths are currently installed at 10 U.S. and Caribbean hotels. Beachgoers can select their preferred SPF level (15, 30, or 40) and the company’s own blend of sunblock will be released from the painstakingly engineered sprayers, dousing guests from head to toe. The formula is free of alcohol and oxybenzone, a chemical known to trigger cancer and to be fatal to coral reefs.
The best part of the convenient system may be its appeal to kids, who don’t like to put off playtime to apply sunscreen. The novelty of the device also encourages kids and adults to reapply sunscreen regularly, which reduces the harmful effects of the sun.
Right now the SnappyScreen is only available at resorts, yet the developers have received requests from country clubs, water parks, public pools, and even private residents. In a few years’ time, the system may be just about everywhere you can find fun in the sun.
