Cooperation – Advertisment
Hello my Aviator,
in this blog post, I want to raise awareness of the importance to protect yourself from the sun. At least once a year I suffer from a sunburn. Normally during my first summer vacation. I recklessly spend time in the sun without or with insufficient protection. But a sunburn has other dramatic side effects and not only a pain from the burn. EUCERIN SUN PROTECTION collaborates with the pilot union Vereinigung Cockpit to raise awareness and to recruit pilots for a study on skin cancer. To all pilots join the Eucerin campaign and win great prizes in a contest.

Why is it so important to use sunscreen?
First of all not to get a painful sunburn. Secondly to lower the chances of getting skin cancer. Solely in Germany, 200.000 people became diagnosed with skin cancer for the first time in 2016. Additionally, the sun is the reason for many other skin damages. That is why you should not only be using sunscreen on vacation at the beach. Instead, you should be using it all year around when outside in the sun.
I was shocked
I never really thought about it, the UV- Light and HEV- Light does not only influence the healthiness of the skin, but also the aging process. The research of Eucerin revealed that the high-energy visible light (HEV) induce free radicals which also cause visible signs of skin aging and hyperpigmentation. About 90% of the visible skin aging is caused by UV- Light and HEV- Light.
Eucerin has the solution
Eucerin offers protection through the ADVANCED SPECTRAL TECHNOLOGY.
- UVA/UVB protection (UVA-protection higher than EU regulations)
- HEV light protection through antioxidant Licochalcone A. It neutralizes free radicals which are triggered through the high-energy visible light.
Up to now, I was never really satisfied with the sunscreens I used. Either they were too oily or they gave a really shiny appearance. Most of the lotions were so thick that my skin became white and sticky.
Eucerin offers a wide range of sunscreen products for any age, skin type and occasion. Two of my favorite products is the “SUN OIL CONTROL FACE GEL-CREME” for the face and the “SENSITIVE PROTECT TRANSPARENT SUN SPRAY“. My face gets shiny really fast and is really sensitive. The “Sun oil control face gel-creme” is made for such skin types and is light and dries really fast. The size is perfect for hand luggage. The transparent sun spray for the body has an ultra-light texture and is not sticky. Both products give you protection and are not visible on the skin.
Eucerin also a product line up especially for kids and people with a sun allergy. New is their “photoaging” product line with active ingredients like hyaluronic acid to mitigate wrinkles and protects against pigmentation.
