Are you already planning your summer vacation and dreaming of spending the best days of the year at the beach of Santorini, Amalfi or Biarritz? What’s the first thing you put on your must-have list for your trip abroad? An excellent sun cream! Why? Because sun exposure without sun protection is the biggest cause of skin ageing. UV rays account for 80 percent of skin ageing. Wrinkles appear earlier on the skin and in greater numbers, dark spots multiply, and the skin ages.
To avoid sun damage, do not sunbathe between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m, when sunshine is at its strongest. When you go out, always apply a sunscreen (at least SPF 30), even in winter. At a pharmacy, you will find a wide range of good sunscreens. If you’re looking for a more luxurious product, I recommend suncare products by Sisley Paris. I’ve been using them for years and I’ve always been very satisfied with the result. I’m particularly fond of Super Soin Solaire Tinted Sun Care SPF 30 in Porcelain, a mix of sunscreen and foundation with a beautiful finish.
IS SUNLEYA THE BEST LUXURY SUN CREAM?
This year, Sisley Paris expands its sun care range with two new products: Sunleÿa G.E. SPF 50+ with an exclusive 3-in-1 formula that provides effective sun protection while keeping skin beautiful, and Super Stick Solaire Tinted Sun Care SPF 50+, a very high protection formula that resists water and perspiration.
I started using Sunleÿa G.E. SPF 50+ a week ago and I really love it. Why? It’s effective, very easy to apply and a good base for my foundation. With the exclusive 3-in-1 formula, you spend less time preparing your skin in the morning. Sunleÿa G.E. is not only a sunscreen, but also a serum and an anti-aging cream. Therefore, there’s no need to apply three skincare products in the morning, which is quite practical during the holiday. Morevoer, you have no more excuses not to apply a high sunscreen before you leave the house.
With enhanced protection (dark spot prevention and SPF 50+), Sunleÿa G.E. offers a new way to combat sun-related skin ageing and provides optimal anti-ageing effectiveness. Its very high protection factor slows the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots and stalls loss of skin firmness. A combination of four photostable filters offers an optimal ratio of UVA to UVB protection. Sunleÿa G.E. is perfect for initial sun exposure, very fair skin or skin that is extremely sensitive to the sun.
(Above) Sunleÿa G.E. SPF 50+ pairs a high-performance filtering formula with a particularly fine, silky texture. Nourishing, soothing and regenerating shea butter protects the skin and repairs the damage caused by the climate or the sun. It maintains the skin’s hydrolipidic film.
THE PERFECT SUNSCREEN STICK FOR SURFERS AND SWIMMERS
Super Stick Solaire Tinted Sun Care SPF 50+ is a very high protection formula that resists water and perspiration. Specially formulated for the sensitive areas of the face (lips, cheeks, eye area, nose and forehead), it comes in a pocket size that is extremely easy to use. The formula provides an optimal ratio of UVA to UVB protection. Ultra-fine titanium dioxide (UVB protection) protects the skin against sunburn.
Thanks to its ultra-practical format, it can be slipped into a pocket or bag and taken anywhere. Simply apply and reapply for day-long protection during outdoor activities.
In Switzerland, Sisley’s new suncare products will be launched on 8 March 2019. Prices: CHF 253 (Sunleÿa G.E. SPF 50+, 50ml) and CHF 70 (Super Stick Solaire, 15g).
