The sun provides us with essential Vitamin D, which lifts our mood by regulating hormonal balance. Sunlight makes us happy and not just because we can head outside to plan! But the sun can also be harmful. That is why it is important to ensure you are using sun lotion to protect the skin. Discover our full range of sun protection lotions.

The sun makes you happy – and sun lotion protects your skin

As the body’s largest organ, the skin has many important functions. It forms a barrier between our body and the outside world and protects us against damaging influences such as an excess of UV radiation. NIVEA Sun Lotion with different SPFs provides protection and supports the skin's functions. At the same time, a sun lotion ensures that the skin tans gently and looks beautiful and healthy. The sun is a true elixir of life for us. Sunlight stimulates the production of endorphins, the so-called feel-good hormones, which is why we often feel so happy and euphoric in the summer. The immune system and circulation also benefit from them. Sun lotion and sun spray therefore, have a high sun protection factor for lighter and sensitive skin types, because they have very little of their own protection against the sun.

Sunscreen lotion – care your skin needs!

How long your skin feels comfortable in the sun depends on your skin type. Applying sun lotion or a sunscreen is nonetheless recommended for all skin types, because NIVEA care products not only protect the skin against the sun, they also provide nourishment at the same time. Unfiltered sunlight penetrates deep into the skin, which can cause lasting damage and lead to premature ageing. If you use sun lotion, you are well protected. When choosing a sun lotion, the sun protection factor, in particular, is crucial. At the beginning of the summer season, the highest possible factor should be chosen. When choosing your sun lotion, you also need to keep in mind that a high sun protection factor does not increase your skin’s inherent UV resistance limitlessly.
