My Favorite Sun Protection Products

Personally speaking, I have very uncomplicated skin and don’t burn easily. Still, I know about the importance to protect my skin from DNA damage and severe aging. This summer, I tried many products of which those really convinced me. Moreover they have a great price-performance ratio.

GARNIER AMBRE SOLAIRE UV Water Protection – as light and fresh as water
Great texture, easy to apply leaving the skin moisturized while being protected from both, UVA and UVB rays. Available with SPF 20 and 30.
CHF 14.90 (150ml)GARNIER AMBRE SOLAIRE After Sun Tissue Mask
A true boost of hydration after sunbathing. Leave it on for 15 minutes and let the magic happen.
CHF 2.90 per sheet mask

ANTI BRUMM® SUN 2in1 Spray SPF 50 (CHF 21.00) and ANTI BRUMM® After Sun 2in1 Lotion (CHF 29.00)
While I don’t tend to burn, unfortunately I tend to be eaten up by mosquitos. I am a human insect repellent for all next to me as I get bitten easily. ANTI BRUMM® has the perfect products for me combining sun care with mosquito repellent, during the day as well as for the night.

Due to the good skin compatibility ANTI BRUMM® also works for people with sun-sensitive skin and for children from 2 years old. ANTI BRUMM® is also recommended by the Swiss Tropical Institute.

Enjoy your holidays!

Enjoy the Sun

First of all, let me tell you, I hate sun creams. For me, it is something I have to apply to protect my skin but cannot be bothered too much with. So my ideal solution is to use it once and be protected the whole day.

La Roche-Posay ANTHELIOS XL CREAM SPF 50 (50ml, CHF 30.00) has become my favorite. It is perfect for sensitive and sun intolerant skin, very water-resistant and its UVA protection twice stricter than the European recommendation (for sun care) thanks to its patented and photostable filtering system Mexoplex®. Its moisturising velvety texture leaves no white marks and works for the body as well as for the face! The range includes also a BB (50ml, CHF 30.00) and a Blur cream (40ml, CHF 30.00), both with SPF 50.

Like this, you can enjoy the sun to the fullest and read our big summer issue of L’Officiel Switzerland that is now at the newsstands nationwide.

Happy Weekend!
