Sunscreen lotion: Summer’s magic potion

Sunscreen lotion and water are your skins best friends! This couldn’t be more true as we enter into the hot summer months.

SPF is your BFF

Sun protection factor (SPF) represents a sunscreen’s ability to protect against a specific portion of ultraviolet (UV) light called UVB. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns and skin cancer. There are two other portions of UV light: UVC rays (which don’t pass the earth’s atmosphere) and UVA rays (which are also responsible for skin cancer as well as skin aging). A sunscreen that is broad spectrum will protect against both UVB and UVA rays.

Heliocare really cares about skin protection

The Heliocare® Advanced range of products provides the highest level of UV protection. Furthermore, it is enhanced with Fernblock® as the base key ingredient. Fernblock® is an exclusive standardised extract of Polypodium Leucotomos. This will offer powerful protective, antioxidant and restorative action that works topically and orally. Important to realise is that its key ingredients act on all four radiation types, including UVB, UVA, Visible Light and Infra-Red light.

By now, it should be as clear as day that we offer comprehensive protection for fun in the sun.

Traditionally, the only sun protection available was topical photoprotection. However, this type of sun protection is often inefficient, as topical photoprotection products are applied incorrectly or not reapplied sufficiently. Therefore, there is a growing need for additional sun protection, assuring a more integral photoprotection.

How to use: It is vital to use the Heliocare Oral Capsules to supplement, but not to replace topical sunscreen during exposure to the sun. Take one capsule daily before sun exposure. In case of prolonged exposure, take a second capsule approximately 4 hours later.

Keep in mind that no sunscreen offers 100% blockage from the sun. Wear wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses or other protective clothing, and seek shade whenever possible.
