Let’s face it, our beautiful weather comes with many advantages- lunches al fresco, pool parties and loving the outdoors in any which way. However, the disadvantage is the awful lot of UVA/UVB rays to which we are exposed- rays that cause untold damage to our skins in the form of pigmentation, photoageing and ultimately skin cancer. And when your moisturizer or foundation displays an SPF 25 or 30, don’t get excited, because that is not enough to protect you. You cannot afford to skip the sunscreen step in your skincare routine! Suffice it to say, if you were told you could have one product if you were stranded on a desert island, the correct answer would have to be sunscreen- no, not lipstick or mascara.
The good news is that Heliocare- (btw- Greek word- hēlios = sun) which has been around for years- is one of the best sunscreens available to us, but was only to be found at selected dermatologists, salons or medical spas. But now, consumers can look forward to Heliocare being available at 21 Sorbet stores nationwide as well!
Fernblock technology was developed by the IFC Group, based in Spain, in collaboration with a group of leading experts in dermatology and photobiology at Harvard Medical School. It is based on a natural extract from a tropicalCentral American fern which evolved from an aquatic to land plant, developing strong protective and repair mechanisms against UV radiation.
Fernblock, an ingredient in all Heliocare products, will save your skin by:
Now I have been using the Heliocare Color Gelcream SPF 50 in Light- also comes in Brown- it’s a high photoimmunoprotection broad-spectrum gel-cream – and hurrah! It has a tint! It helps to prevent the formation of pigmentation and other signs of visible photo-ageing. It contains the Fernblock ingredient, is suitable for all skin types and leaves no residue on the skin. It’s also non-comedogenic. I have used it on its own- just like a BB cream, under foundation and even wore it to the gym. It doesn’t gum up under makeup and I really love the consistency- no make-up gals and boys will love it- it evens out pores and skin texture, but the great PLUS is that your skin will be protected.
For those of us who love having chemical peels or laser treatments, or who use retinols (those make us more sun sensitive) or for skin conditions such as psoriasis and porphyria, or anyone who is particularly sun sensitive, do consider taking Heliocare Ultra Capsules (R450) which contain high levels of Fernblock, boosted by potent antioxidants Vitamin C & E. So you are protecting from the inside. They are absolutely safe for kids 4 years and older (you can break the capsule and sprinkle on cereal for littlelies)
Look out for Heliocare at selected Sorbet stores, or get it online at either:
