How to use

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 suitable for your skin type and condition.

2. Use the right amount

It’s important to use sufficient product and to reapply it at regular intervals.
We recommend you spray approximately 15 times for each area (1-11) on the diagram:

  • 1. Face and neck
  • 2 & 3. Both arms
  • 4. Chest
  • 5.  Stomach
  • 6 & 7. The top of your legs (front and back)
  • 8 & 9. The bottom of your legs (front and back) plus your feet
  • 10. Shoulders and upper back
  • 11. Lower back

The pump can be held quite close to the body. To protect the sensitive skin on your face and neck (area 1) we recommend you use one of our facial sun protection products.

3. Apply thoroughly

Ensure all exposed areas get the protection they need. Massage the product into your skin and don’t forget the back and shoulders as well as your hands and feet, the backs of the arms and the areas at the edges of swimwear.

Eucerin research2 indicates that, on average, approximately 14% of the back of the female body and 22% of the back of the male body is regularly exposed to the sun’s rays without any protection whatsoever.

Important usage instructions

Shake well before use. Do not spray directly onto the face / avoid inhalation.
Apply generously before sun exposure and reapply frequently, especially after swimming, perspiring or towelling to maintain the original protection. Reducing the quantity will lower the level of protection significantly.
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. Allow to absorb completely and avoid direct contact with textiles and hard surfaces to prevent staining.

How it works

It’s not just UV rays that can damage skin. High-energy visible (HEVIS) light generates free radicals that cause photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun), and even high UV protection is not enough to prevent it. Eucerin Sun Sprays offer Advanced Spectral Technology that goes beyond UV to protect skin from the negative effects of HEVIS light too.

While UVB rays penetrate the outermost layers of skin (the epidermis) and can cause sunburn, UVA and HEVIS light rays penetrate the deeper layers of skin (the dermis) and generate free radicals additionally stressing skin.

Eucerin’s Advanced Spectral Technology combines superior broadband and photostable UVA/UVB filter system1 with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UVA and HEVIS light.

1 Meeting the high standards for UVA and UVB protection defined by Cosmetics Europe. The levels of UVA protection are higher than the EU requirement.

FAQ (4)

  • 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.

  • Why does sensitive skin need special sun protection?

    Sensitive skin has a weakened protective barrier. It is less able to bind in the moisture that it needs and is more vulnerable to external irritants. One of those external irritants is the sun’s rays which causes skin to dry out further and become red and irritable. Sensitive skin benefits from sun protection that has been specially formulated to soothe as well as protect. 

  • 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 and 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.
