It’s that time of the year again where everyone wants to have fun in the sun, but at what cost? Well, with the New Eucerin Photoaging Control Sun Lotion Extra Light 50+ , you don’t have to worry about premature skin aging caused by the suns UV rays. Just so we’re all on the same page, Photoaging is premature skin ageing caused by UV rays.
I’m not sure how many posts I’ve written in this year alone which emphasize the importance of using sunscreen and products with an SPF, whether you’re staying indoors all day, or heading out for some fun in the sun. Being in the blogger/influencer space and having to do quite a lot of glam when I head out for either day or night events, I’ve realised that some of the products I use on my skin actually don’t have an SPF. I’d advise that whether or not the makeup products you use have an SPF, wear sunscreen. You can’t solely rely on your day cream or on SPF makeup to protect your skin from UV rays – SPF makeup is no substitute for sunscreen!
“Most do not have any coverage against the UVA rays that will go through your car window, your home windows, goes through the clouds, the rainstorms and the snow,” Lily Talakoub, M.D. Dermatologist at McLean Dermatologist and Skincare Center
When it comes to applying sunscreen, all exposed areas of the face, neck, decolletage, arms, shoulders and body should be covered. Worried about white film or sticky skin as a result of using sunscreen? Well worry no more. The New Eucerin Photoaging Control Sun Lotion is a light, fast absorbing formula which addresses the above concerns.
Because there are a variety of products e under the Eucerin sunscreen category, I didn’t want anyone to be confused between the Eucerin Sun Photoaging Control LOTION and the Eucerin Photoaging Control Sun FLUID. The Eucerin Sun Photoaging Control LOTION ( pictured above ) is for decolletage, neck, shoulders and arms. The Eucerin Photoaging Control Sun FLUID ( Pictured below) is for use on the face and neck and NOT the delicate parts of the body such as decolletage, shoulders, neck and arms.
What’s even more exciting and definitely sets the New Eucerin Photoaging Control Sun Lotion apart is its formula which includes more than just UV filters.The new advanced Spectral Technology combines UVA/UVB protection and High-Energy Visible (HEVIS) light defence. To provide a powerful HEVIS Light Defence, the formula contains anti-oxidative Licochalcone A which helps to neutralise fee radicals and thus prevent photoaging. The formula also containsGlycyrrhetic Acid which supports the skin’s own DNA repair mechanism.
Johannesburg is currently experiencing the craziest heat waves, leaving my skin looking dull and feeling dry – it’s such an uncomfortable feeling. This is why I’m so pleased with the fact that this sunscreen also moisturizes the skin when you have it on, thanks to the combination of both short- and long- chain Hyaluronic Acid. The long chain version remains on the skin’s surface, providing it with moisture and leaving it feeling smooth. The short-chain Hyaluronic Acid penetrates deeper. With this combination, the skin’s appearance is improved, and is protected against photoaging as best possible.
Wishing you all a safe summer with your family and friends. Don’t forget to moisturise, stay hydrated by drinking water and wear your sunscreen! 🙂
