The Sisley Suncare product suited to your needs
Golden rules for safe exposure to the sun



Choosing the best suncare product adapted to your needs
involves several criteria, such as your phototype (your sensitivity to the sun)
as well as the types of sun exposure.



  • What is your sensitivity to the sun?

► You are phototype 1: your skin is extremely sensitive to the sun
Your skin is “milky white” with a lot of freckles and you systematically get sunburn when you go out in the sun. Besides, you rarely or never get a tan.


► You are phototype 2: your skin is sensitive to the sun
Your skin is fair, possibly with a few freckles. You often get sunburn in the sun, but you do get a tan after a few days exposure to the sun.


► You are phototype 3: your skin is intermediate and you are moderately sensitive to the sun
Your skin is fair but you tan relatively easily and only get sunburn from intense exposure.


► You are phototype 4 or +: your skin is resistant and not very sensitive to the sun
Your skin is matte and you tan easily and practically never get sunburn.



  • What is your type of sun exposure?

► Your exposure is moderate
You are going to the countryside, preferably mid-season to avoid the worst of the heat.

► Your exposure is high
You are going to the seaside, in a temperate to hot climate and want to make the most of the sun.

► Your exposure is extreme
You are going to a tropical climate, skiing or intend to do a lot of outdoor sports (sailing, hiking, etc.).
