Of all the steps in your skin care routine, applying sunscreen before you step out the door is the most important so it makes sense to go for quality, clinically proven and trustworthy formulas that will keep your skin safe in the sun.
Heliocare provides such formulas and is a brand completely dedicated to protecting the skin from the sun’s rays, environmental stressors and free radicals. Every product in the range is developed using mineral and non-mineral filters to prevent UVA and UVB rays wreaking havoc on the tone and underlying structure of the skin. But what makes Heliocare products so special is their innovative ingredient Fernblock™ which is extracted from a particularly clever fern known as Polypodium Leucotomos. Found in Central America, it has developed the amazing ability to protect itself against photo-damage and stress caused by the sun’s rays. By harnessing this impressive power, Heliocare products are able to protect human DNA within the cells against destruction which makes maintaining a smooth, plump complexion easy.
Alongside their range of cream, gel and fluid sunscreens, Heliocare offer a range of tinted formulas for those who hate the idea of going bare-faced at the beach. They have also expanded the range to include a concise selection of 360° formulas, which provide the same UVA/UVB and DNA protection as the core products in the range, with the added benefit of being able to block High-Energy Visible Light (HEV) – the type of rays emitted from computer screens and smartphones – as well as defending against Infrared-A Radiation.
Their skin-defending and Vitamin D-boosting supplements are also worth a try, utilising the same Fernblock™ technology as their topical solutions but in a daily oral supplement. Use the two together and your skin will never have to fear the sun again.
This popular sunscreen combines mineral and non-mineral filters to successfully protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays while innovative ingredient Fernblock™ (an extract sourced from a fern with the ability to protect itself against the sun’s rays) inhibits DNA damage within the cells and prevents collagen destruction. The lightweight, non-greasy formula is also comfortable to wear, even on hot days, and can be re-applied quickly and easily.
Suitable for oily and problematic skin types, apply to clean dry skin on the face and neck every morning, at least 30 minutes prior to sun exposure.
