Galderma presents: the new DAYLONG SPORT a hydrogel innovative sun protection for outdoor activities and extreme sports

Many things are different this Spring. Even is the world is turned upside down, there are things that remain the same for example a reliable sun protection. Whether on the balcony, in the garden or during a short jog, our skin is always exposed to UV rays outside. So that we can also enjoy the sun during outdoor activities, Galderma has developed Daylong ™ Sport, a hydrogel sun protection specially designed for the people who love outdoor activities. Even if the current situation challenges us, we surely look forward to spending time outside and enjoying the fresh air, while feeling the rays of the sun. After spending lots of time indoor for several months, the observation is always the same: the sun is not only good for our mood, but it is  also good for the body. However especially in spring, our skin is sensitive to the sun and needs special protection.

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.

Let's face it tanned  skin  conjures  up  images  of  holidays, sun,  summer  and well-being.
A gentle sun-kissed complexion can help to make us feel more beautiful  but  how  can  we  achieve  a  golden  glow  without  damaging our skin? And in this particular time while staying at home?Today,  self-tanners  offer  a  convincing  tan  without  the  harmful  effects of excess sun.Since its launch in 2012, Sisley’s self-tanning skin care has been widely lauded for its natural results.In 2020, Sisley is offering a new, innovative sensory experience to  give  the  beauty  benefits  of  the  sun,  without  sun  exposure.  Its  two body and facial skin care products give subtly sun-kissed and lastingly hydrated skin all together.
Sisley’s new Self-Tanning Skin Care works with all skin tones. The shade of the skin gradually changes and transforms every day and with each application to give an ultra-natural result. Thanks to this radiant, harmonious and even tan, the skin appears sun-kissed. This colour is achieved by combining two leading self-tanning molecules: DHA and Erythrulose. The rapid action of DHA starts to colour the skin in 2 to 4 hours for a fast-acting tan.The Erythrulose is then activated to give the definitive tan 24 hours later. This combinationis suitable for all skin tones, whether fair or darker. Thanks to the Biosaccharide Solution (new active ingredient in the formula), an expert moisturizing agent obtained from corn and soya, the skin is gradually hydrated, to give a sensory velvety-soft feel. Stevia leaf extract and Glycerin of plant origin compensate for the dehydration caused by the colour reaction of the self-tanning molecules. New Sisley action: Hibiscus flower extract (organic), with its gentle exfoliating properties, helps to rid the skin of dead cells and leave it smoother for a radiant and even tan. New Sisley action: Sesame essential extract acts like a ray of sunshine to encourage the natural production of melanin by the melanocytes for a long-term tanning effect. This active ingredient also possesses nourishing and regenerating properties.
Sisley Laboratories have developed highly sensory textures based on liquid crystal emulsions, which form a physical reservoir of water on the surface of the epidermis. The trapped moisture is gradually released to continuously hydrate the skin. The lightweight silky texture of Self Tanning Hydrating Facial Skin Care glides onto the skin for faultless hand application and a super-soft finish. The creamy and comfortable texture is applied with a Velvet Glove specially designed for the body to ensure a perfect finish. It can be used to apply and spread Self Tanning Hydrating Body Skin Care in small circular motions without leaving any marks or streaks. The Self Tanning Skin Care products can be applied one to three times a week depending on the desired intensity. Apply a thin and even layer to dry, cleansed skin and reapply in the following weeks as required.
The self-tanning effect is visible after just two hours.
