The app asks a series of questions about how you protect yourself in the sun, including choice of hat, sunscreen and sunglasses, the Courier Mail reported.

It also analyses a photo of your face and gives a prediction of the future.

The technology allows users to check the daily UV Index forecast for their local area.

Queensland Health warns: "Sun protection in Queensland is important all year round as UV levels are consistently above level three, even throughout winter."
