Whether you’re a road biker, mountain biker or a hobby cyclist, there’s nothing like exploring the world on two wheels on a clear, sunny day.
Depending on the weather, your face and often other parts of your body like your forearms and calves are exposed to the sun for long periods of time. Sun intensity increases with altitude, so it’s even stronger in the mountains. When you’re mountain biking or road biking, you usually sweat a lot, so you’ll need a sun protection that won’t run into your eyes and start to sting. When you’re on a bike, sunscreen in your eyes is not just inconvenient –– it can actually pose a serious safety risk.
Pro mountain biker and SWOX athlete Steffi Marth has won multiple German championships and been on several world cup podiums.
“Sun protection is really important to me since I spend all day outside in the mountains, where the sun is most intense. I personally have skin problems related to UV exposure, so I always include sun protection in my daily skin care routine.”
Steffi’s favorite everyday skin care product is the SWOX Daily Face Balm with a mineral UV filter and organic plant oils.
