With the weather getting warmer and some much-anticipated sun just around the corner, sun protection is more important than ever.

But as you probably already know, it’s not only on the beach or by the pool where your skin needs sun protection. Daily, year-round, SPF protection is a crucial part of your skincare routine to prevent skin damage and Avène + Intense Protect SPF50+ offers daily protection against UV rays and Blue Light.

What is HEV Blue Light?

Did you know that 25% of skin cell damage is caused by High Energy Visible (HEV) Blue Light rays? Blue Light is your skin’s invisible enemy, emitting powerful, invisible light rays that penetrate even deeper into the skin’s layers than UVA.

Particularly strong on clear days when you can’t see a cloud in the sky, HEV Blue Light rays cause increased oxidative stress, accelerating skin ageing. Wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and age spots are all visible signs that occur with the cumulative absorption of HEV Blue Light. Thus, the need to protect your skin from it.

What is TriAsorBTM?

TriAsorBTM is a groundbreaking hybrid sun filter against the most damaging and penetrative rays: short UVA-UVB rays, long UVA rays but also HEV Blue Light.

For better efficacy, TriAsorBTM has been integrated into a comprehensive filtering system. A new gentle formula with only 4 photostable sun filters suitable for the most sensitive skin. Avène’s new facial sun care range is eco-designed following strict standards for the planet and for sensitive skin.

Why is it important to protect your skin?

Maintaining healthy skin is about more than just appearance. Healthy skin functions better as a barrier against environmental damage and irritants. Looking after your skin and keeping it hydrated, especially in the summer months, will leave you glowing and radiant.

Regular use of sun protection and soothing products such as those from Avène are key for maintaining skin health and preventing long-term damage.

How to protect your skin in the sun? 

Protecting your skin from the sun requires an effective and reliable sunscreen. TriAsorBTM is Avène’s unique and patented sun filter against UV rays and Blue Light.

Avène Suncare Intense Protect SPF50+ uses TriAsorBTM for long-lasting SPF protection for the whole family. An ultra-broad spectrum sunscreen for the face and body, this SPF protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays, as well as against skin photoaging due to Blue Light.

Avène sunscreen offers the highest standard of protection against deep and visible skin damage for all skin types (even the most sensitive!) and is tested for the most intense conditions, including high altitude, tropical weather and high humidity.

How to cool down your skin after a day in the sun?

After a day in the sun, there’s no better feeling than cooling and soothing the skin. Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray is the perfect product to calm and soften sensitive skin.

A summer-must have, the Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray can be used as a cooling spray, after sunburn, on babies’ nappy area or to calm itching sensation and skin tightness.
