STRONG
SENSITIVE

Throughout all of her experiences, Turia knows life is about finding the perfect balance between strength and sensitivity. When you embrace the two, no obstacle is too much.

This summer, we’re offering you the chance to win a luxury trip to Queenstown where you can discover
your STRONG SENSITIVE side.


Our SPF 50+ Sun Care range provides STRONG protection for SENSITIVE skin so you can find that balance and let nothing hold you back.

STRONG PROTECTION FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Stay STRONG SENSITIVE this summer with our SPF 50+ range.

STRONG PROTECTION

Find your strength

Turia Pitt embodies strength, both physically and emotionally, whether she's taking the stage as a speaker, competing as an athlete or enjoying life as a mother. As an ambassador for Avène Sun Care, she knows that finding strength is part of everyday life.

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world as exposure to the sun is often unavoidable. As such, strong, broad spectrum UV protection is crucial for people of all ages and skin types.

Finding strong protection means using a sunscreen with a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor). The higher a sunscreen's SPF, the better it protects against UVB radiation as, when properly applied, an SPF 50+ sunscreen can filter up to 98% of UVB rays.*

SENSITIVE SKIN

EMBRACE YOUR
SENSITIVITY

“Sensitivity has never held me back. Showing sensitivity helps to foster kindness and compassion. Those things are what strengthen our relationships with others, with our families and with ourselves as well.”

Turia knows more than anyone that having sensitive skin should never hold you back from enjoying the outdoors. With the right protection, you don't need to feel like you're risking one or the other.

DON’T LET SENSITIVE
SKIN HOLD YOU BACK

UV Index

A scale for evaluating the risk caused by UV radiation...

The UV index expresses the intensity of UV radiation when it reaches the Earth's surface.

The higher the UV index, the higher the risk of skin and eye damage.

This varies according to several factors:

- The Sun's position : the higher the position of the Sun in the sky, the more intense the radiation. This varies according to time of day. Intensity peaks between 11 am and 4 pm; this is called “solar noon”.
- Altitude : the higher we are, the more intense UV radiation becomes.
- Latitude : UV radiation intensifies the closer we get to the equator.
- Cloud cover : the denser the cloud cover, the more intense UV radiation becomes.
- Reflection : UV rays are reflected with more or less intensity depending on the surface involved, which emphasises how dangerous they are.
Grass : 3% of UV rays are reflected.
Water : 5% to 20%.
Sand: 15 %.
Snow : 70 %.
Ice : 90 %.
