Product Info

Tinted facial sunscreen that protects all skin types from photoaging

UV light is the main cause of sun-induced skin damage, but high-energy visible (HEVIS) light can also induce free radicals that cause further stress to skin.

Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted Photoaging Control SPF 50+ Fair is an everyday facial sunscreen that gives all skin types with a light tone an even, naturally tanned-looking appearance. The Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA and UVB filters1 for very high UV protection with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UV and HEVIS light. The tinted sunscreen also includes Glycyrrhetinic Acid which supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism.
The Hyaluronic Acid and mineral pigments in the formula instantly unify the complexion and visibly reduce signs of aging such as fine lines or an uneven skin tone.
Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted Photoaging Control SPF 50+ Fair is unperfumed and has a pleasant light texture that absorbs quickly. Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good skin tolerability on sensitive skin.

Attention

Sun protection isn’t just for sun bathers. Light to moderate everyday exposure affects skin too. That’s why it’s important to include sun protection in your daily skincare routine. Find out more in The importance of sun protection in your daily routine.

Three steps to optimal sun protection

1. Select the right product

Choose a product that offers the right level of protection for your skin. It should protect against UVA and UVB rays and offer HEVIS light defense. It should also be tailored to your skin type and condition. If you choose a tinted product be sure to match it to your natural skin tone.

2. Use the right amount

It’s important to use sufficient product and to reapply it at regular intervals. You can use your palm to measure how much product to use. We recommend that, to cover your face and neck, you use a thick line of tinted sunscreen the length of your middle finger.

Apply sunscreen for dry skin thoroughly to your face

3. Apply thoroughly

Some parts are easy to miss. Don’t forget the bridge of your nose and your neck.

Important usage instructions

  • Apply generously before sun exposure and reapply frequently− especially after swimming, perspiring or toweling − to maintain the original protection
  • Reducing the quantity will significantly lower the level of protection
  • Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product
  • Over-exposure to the sun is a serious health threat
  • Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight
  • Avoid contact with eyes
  • Allow product to absorb completely, and avoid direct contact with textiles and hard surfaces to prevent staining

Ingredients

How it works

It’s not just UV rays that can damage skin. High-energy visible (HEVIS) light generates free radicals and causes photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). Eucerin Sun Fluid Photoaging Control SPF 50 and SPF 30, and Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted Photoaging Control SPF 50+ Fair and Medium offer Advanced Spectral Technology that goes beyond UV to protect skin from the negative effects of HEVIS light too. The formulas support skin’s own DNA repair mechanism and, with Hyaluronic Acid, they help to visibly reduce signs of skin aging.

Advanced Spectral Technology
Superior broadband and photostable UVA/UVB filters1 are combined with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UVA and HEVIS light.

DNA protection
The innovative Photoaging Control formula also includes Glycyrrhetinic Acid which supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism.

Hyaluronic Acid
Eucerin’s uses two types of Hyaluronic Acid to deliver intense moisturization, plump up wrinkles and visibly reduce the signs of skin aging.

The Sun Creme Tinted Photoaging Control SPF 50+ Fair and Medium products also contain mineral pigments that instantly even skin tone and unify the complexion.

FAQ (7)

    What is photoaging?

    Photoaging is the name given to premature skin aging caused by the sun. An estimated 90% of premature skin aging is thought to be caused by the sun’s rays.2

    (2) Ramos-e-Silva et al., ‘Anti-aging cosmetics: Facts and controversies’. Clin Dermatol. 2013 Nov-Dec; 31(6): 750-8.

    How do I know which SPF to use?

    Sunscreens are available in four different levels of protection: low (factor 6 to 10), medium (15 to 25), high (30 to 50) and very high (50+). The higher the protection factor the better your skin is protected, but it’s important to apply the product thoroughly (be careful not to miss any bits) and to reapply it generously every two hours.

    What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

    UVA rays penetrate the deeper layers of skin. They stimulate the production of free radicals in the skin which cause oxidative stress and can lead to indirect DNA damage (where the free radicals modify cellular DNA over time). UVA rays are most commonly associated with photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). They can also trigger sun allergies such as Polymorphous Light Eruption (PLE). UVB rays can also provoke allergies, but to a lesser degree.

    UVB rays provide the energy your skin needs to make Vitamin D and stimulate the production of melanin which is responsible for tanning. They don’t travel as deeply as UVA rays, penetrating only the outermost layers of skin, but they cause more immediate damage such as sunburn. UVB rays are directly absorbed by cellular DNA which can lead to skin diseases such as actinic keratosis and skin cancer.
    Both types of UV can induce hyperpigmentation and may contribute to conditions such as sun spots (also known as age spots) and melasma.

    What is high-energy visible light and why does my skin need to be protected from it?

    The sunlight spectrum consists of UV, visible and infrared light. Visible sunlight can be detected by the human eye, while the others remain invisible. Part of this visible spectrum has a high energy level and is known as high-energy visible light. It is also referred to as HEVIS light, HEV Light, HEVL and sometimes ‘blue light’ or ‘blue violet light’

    Like UVA rays, HEVIS light penetrates the deeper layers of skin (the dermis) and can generate free radicals. These free radicals are one of the main causes of photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). They interfere with skin cells and break down the collagen and elastin that gives our skin its plump, youthful appearance. HEVIS light has also been linked to uneven skin pigmentation and melasma.

    Many modern sunscreens offer effective protection against UVA and UVB rays, but we recommend that you look out for products that also defend against the negative effects of HEVIS light. These products will give your skin reliable protection from photoaging and, in the long run, can also help to combat visible signs of skin aging such as wrinkles.

    Why should I integrate sun face care into my daily routine?

    Facial skin is more sensitive to UVA/UVB radiation and HEVIS light than skin on the rest of the body as it is exposed to sun all year round. Sun protection can help you avoid the cellular DNA damage caused by UV, photoaging(premature aging caused by the sun) and hyperpigmentation. It is important to protect facial skin whenever it is exposed to the sun.

    Can I use make-up over Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted Photoaging Control SPF 50+ Fair?

    Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted Photoaging Control SPF 50+ Fair will even pale skin tones and leave your skin looking naturally-tanned. It also helps to cover up pigment spots and skin imperfections. But, if you want to use it as a base for additional coverage, that’s fine too. It makes an ideal make-up base for both liquid and powder-based make-up which can be safely applied without affecting the sun protection. Do remember, however, to reapply sun protection regularly throughout the day.

    What is the difference between Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted Photoaging Control SPF 50+ Fair and Eucerin Sun Fluid Photoaging Control SPF 50?

    Both formulas offer Eucerin’s Advanced Spectral Technology which combines broadband and photostable UVA and UVB filters 1 with Licochalcone A to neutralize the free radicals caused by UV and high-energy visible light. Both formulas also include Glycyrrhetinic Acid which supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism and Hyaluronic Acid which visibly reduces wrinkles.
    The main differences between the two products are that:

    One offers very high sun protection (SPF 50+) while the other offers high sun protection (SPF 50)
    One contains color pigments (which leave skin with a naturally-tanned and even looking tone) and the other doesn’t. 
    The texture is also very slightly different: both products have a pleasantly light texture, but the tinted product is slightly creamier than the non-tinted product.
