Climbing competitions often take place outdoors, so sunscreen is a must-have item. ANESSA doesn't feel sticky even when I put it on before climbing. I will continue aiming for the top with ANESSA.

Athletes are exposed to UV rays for many hours, so sunburn has always been my concern. ANESSA is like my "hero" who protects me even when I sweat after long outdoor practice or competition. I will do my best to become stronger as a sport player and as a woman with ANESSA.

Canoeing is always done under sunlight and water splashes. ANESSA is my only one – it is not only water-resistant but also creates a stronger UV protective layer when mixed with water or sweat. I will continue to paddle the canoe with ANESSA.
