Hello my Aviator,
last week I spend a layover in beautiful and sunny Sevilla in the South of Spain. The summer in Germany has been extremely hot, but in Sevilla, I was expected to experience 46 degrees. I literally was shocked, because I have never felt such extreme temperatures in my life. The air-conditioning had a hard time to cool down my hotel room, so I decided to go to the pool to relax and refresh. Latest after my visit with the Eucerin Sun Team of Beiersdorf I knew how vital it is to protect myself from the sun.
Before my layover in Sevilla, the Eucerin Sun Protection Team of Beiersdorf invited me for a day to their headquarters in Hamburg. Since I became part of this awareness campaign, I have learned a lot about my skin, sun protection and the consequences of light. Especially during my researches on my recent blog post “why is sun protection so vital for you“.
I only knew from the Eucerin Sun Protection Team that I will see my skin from a different side and that I will make a journey through it. This sounded interesting. In the end, I really had an illuminating experience.
I was shocked
I got used to standing in front of cameras, but this was a special one. A so-called UV Camera, which makes skin damages caused by the sunlight visible. I was excited about the result since I am only 30 years old and my skin looks pretty good. But I also know that I have exposed myself to the sun unprotected and I have a quite light skin tone.
In front of the camera, I could see some dark spots. Damages which are not yet visible, but when I get older it will be visible through age marks and pigmentation. On the left side, I applied the Eucerin Sun Protection Oil Control which appears as black color, because it blocks the light.
Is it too late?
One question arose immediately: Is too late for proper sun protection? The Eucerin Sun Team reassured that it is never too late for sun protection as long as you start now. Your health and beauty will thank you.
Do I really want to see this?
Next station was the age simulator which showed me how I will look like with the age of 72. Do I really want to know this? After taking a headshot with a regular camera, a complex software, which is also used by the FBI, could simulate how my face will look like when getting older with and without proper sun protection. Up to the age of 50, it was hard to see a difference, but afterward, it was significant. The face looked way older with ugly pigmentation and huge wrinkles. Would you still be following me when I look like that? Shocking was also the effect of smoking on the skin which makes the face look tremendously older.
But what is proper protection
The right product
Find the right product for you and your skin type. Eucerin Sun Protection has a huge product variety thus meets your age, preference, and needs.
The right amount
Think of the size of a golf ball. That is the quantity you need to cover your whole body.
Best is to apply sunscreen twice, so you don’t miss out on any unprotected spots on your skin.
