    Stiftung Warentest: Nine sunscreens are "very good," but four are better left alone.

Sunscreen

Sunscreen, suntan lotion, waterproof sun gel, sun spray or sun oil protect your skin from harmful UV radiation and its unpleasant consequences during sunbathing: Sunburn, sun allergy and skin cancer. Whether at the lake or the sea, while hiking in the mountains or on the water while stand up paddling or sailing, whether in winter while skiing or snowboarding - you should buy sunscreen with a suitable sun protection factor for active sun protection all year round and always apply enough cream and care for your skin before and after sunbathing. Sunbathing can stress your skin and the UV radiation from sunlight is not without danger. Too much sun can cause irritation, allergies and damage cells. Sunscreen not only protects against the sunlight, but also moisturizes your skin and protects it from drying out. We offer a wide range of sunscreen products with high SPF or low SPF for every skin type, whether sensitive skin, darker skin, allergic skin or children's skin. In our assortment we have for you the well-known and proven sun creams of the brands Daylong, Eucerin, Nivea, La Roche Posay, Garnier Ambre Solaire or Weleda or you try the products of Skinnes, Piz Buin Laboratoires de Biarritz or Sherpa Tensing. Why use sunscreen at all? Sunlight radiates in different wavelengths and colors. The ultraviolet part of the sun color rainbow damages the cells of the skin and is divided into the radiation types UV-A radiation and UV-B radiation. UV-B radiation is responsible for potential sunburn, while UV-A radiation can cause pigmentation spots and cause wrinkles from sunbathing. Dermatologists generally recommend avoiding strong UV radiation and using a sunscreen daily, even in regular daylight. The sun protection factor of a product always tells you the strength of the filter effect, or more precisely the length, for example SPF 30 gives 300 minutes of sunbathing. Whether sun protection factor 15, 20, 30 or 50 - you should rather choose a higher SPF than a too low one and never exhaust the entire protection time. Repeated application of sunscreen does not extend the protection time, but only maintains it. Everyday tip: Since your skin needs protection not only in high summer on vacation, but also on slightly summery days and even under cloudy skies, we offer you a wide range of facial fluids, moisturizers with SPF and daylight products with UV protection for everyday use. This will also keep your skin looking young and fresh for longer, all year round, anywhere in the world.
