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.

Everyone around the world is affected

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.

Outdoor activity requires sun protection

My two favorite products with ultralight texture

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.

Are you a pilot? You can become an ambassador of Eucerin Sun Protection as well. From now on Eucerin collaborates with the Vereinigung Cockpit which is the biggest pilot union in Germany to raise awareness for sun protection and to recruit pilots for a study on pilots special risk skin cancer. Pilots spend time at sunny places all year around and they do outdoor activities during layovers and their private time. Therefore they spend a lot of time in the light of the sun. Together we can raise awareness of the importance of sun protection so fewer people will suffer from skin damages in the future. Additionally, you join a contest and win great prizes.

    Hi Patrick, sorry to leave a comment under your sunscreen post because otherwise I am not sure if it gets through. The profile of the person who stole your photos resurfaced again, and its at https://www.okcupid.com/profile/3758509898229349374 . The fraud looks blatantly hideous, is there something we can do about it?

    I do not even know how I stopped up right here, but I thought this put up was once good.

    I do not realize who you are however definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already.


  1. […] 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“. […]
