Most Swiss are aware that you have to protect your skin from the sun when you are outdoors, especially in spring and summer: according to a representative survey by Daylong ™ on outdoor activities and sun protection on more than 1,000 people in Switzerland, 65% of them at least have said to use sunscreen to prevent skin damage *. While this is the case for 72% of the women questioned, only 59% of the men questioned use sun protection at least occasionally. Women are therefore significantly more likely to take the protection of their skin from UV rays seriously. Moreover, people aged 40 to 49 use sun protection much more often than those younger of 30 years old or those from 50-59 years old.
It is also important to systematically protect your skin from UV rays when practicing an outdoor activity. We sweat a lot, the heart works hard and the legs too: to be able to fully concentrate on your physical efforts, it is essential to use a suitable sun protection. Daylong ™ experts therefore created Daylong ™ Sport, a protection that perfectly meets the needs of athletes, including in extreme conditions, for example at altitude or in water. Thanks to its formula, the new DaylongTM Sport offers sun protection perfectly adapted to sportsmen. During the practice of a sporting activity, it is indeed essential that the heat generated can be evacuated and the sweat can evaporate so that the body does not overheat. Hydrating lotions and oils hinder this process. That’s why sun protection with low lipid content and water and sweat resistant are the best choice: skin is this way protected optimally, even during extreme sports. This broad spectrum anti-UVA / UVB sun protection and sun protection index of 50+ acts immediately and is suitable for all skin types. In addition, thanks to its “Fast-Absorber” formula, DaylongTM Sport allows you to start your sport right after the application. This sun protection presents itself as a light non-greasy hydrating gel, which is quickly absorbed by skin and gives it a pleasant mat effect. In addition to being very resistant to water and sweat, it does not irritate the eyes, contains no perfume, is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, which makes it also suitable for sensitive skin.
