BEAUTY: sun exposure & protection

BEAUTY: sun exposure & protection

Generally speaking, my skin type falls into the category of “easy to get burnt”. Freckles, fair skin and blue eyes don’t necessarily speak for a southern type and I definitely don’t tan easily. Luckily though, I am pretty good at taking care of my skin and protecting it from getting burnt. I don’t think sunburns are cool and get mad at myself if even my nose is pink at the end of a day spent outside by the beach or pool. Plus, I don’t want unnecessary wrinkles when I get older. In other words: Sun protection is important! Just last week in Bangkok, I spotted a girl at the pool who literally had blisters and raw skin on her stomach from getting burnt so bad – but don’t think that stopped her from sitting in the most intense sun right at noon. Maybe I should have introduced her to the new UV-patch + app by La Roche-Posay, which I already got to test back in May under the Spanish sun in Mallorca.

Beauty Talk: Sun Protection with La Roche-Posay UV-Patch | Bikinis & Passports

UV-patch, you ask? Yes! It is a new way of tracking your sun exposure and knowing exactly when to reapply your sunscreen or go hide in the shade as an important part of the Skin Checker campaign by La Roche-Posay, where they empower you to become your own skin checker as a form of skin cancer prevention because 90% of melanomes can be treated if detected in time!
Here’s how it works: Scan, monitor, protect. Simple enough, right? After applying the UV-patch to your skin, simply scan it to connect with the app an get data on your level of sun exposure. Next, make sure to monitor the level of risk and receive personalized sun safety tips. Last but certainly not least, protect your skin with the right SPF from the Anthelios sun care range – my personal favorite is easy-to-apply spray!

    Wow – die Fotos sind sooo wunderschön von dir! Eines schöner als das andere – du strahlst einfach so eine schöne Natürlichkeit aus!

    Toller Post – ich bin leider auch ein heller und empfindlicher Hauttyp – Sonnenschutz ist einfach so wichtig und wird von vielen unterschätzt – leider!

    ♥ Liebste Grüße ♥

    Keine blöde Erfindung. Nicht übel. Ich bin auch so ein Käse der dauernd mit Hut unterm Schirm sitzt. Wir haben schon aus jedem Land einen Sonnenschirm. Haha.
