LADY@LXG: Say what! sunscreen in a capsule??

I am a big sunscreen user. Unfortunately for me, I started this obsession a little late in life, so I have already damaged my skin irreparably, but heck, better late than never, so for the past decade or so, I have been slathering, spraying and daubing on almost every brand of sunscreen in the market, so believe me when I say that I know my sunscreen brands.   

Since the beginning of this year however, I have focussed this sunscreen obsession of mine towards one specific brand; Heliocare. I like the simplicity of the product and the fact that it is not tested on animals, as I am a huge animal advocate.

Their sunscreens also smell nice. Not overly perfumed or reeking of chemicals, but subtle and nice. My favourite is the gel/cream formula which melts into the skin. 

But today, I am not going to wax lyrical about their topical sunscreens. Instead, let me tell about their top-seller; Heliocare Oral, which is quite simply, sunscreen in a capsule. Its perfect for those of us who are not as conscientious about applying SPF on every visible surface of our skin, including the webbing between our fingers and toes. Its also great for when you just don’t have the time or ability to reapply every 2-4 hours, which is why Heliocare Oral is a must-have for me every morning to ensure that my already damaged skin, does not get damaged any further.



Thankfully because I have been literally dousing myself in sunscreen and now ingesting Heliocare oral for about a year, I do not have any freckling issues (phew!) but looking good and staying healthy takes effort, so if you want to ward off those pesky freckles and unsightly pigmentation, but keep forgetting to apply your sunscreen religiously, then my advice would be to get yourself a bottle of Heliocare Oral which claims to be able to protect skin from premature aging and sun damage, while inhibiting the depletion of collagen caused by UVA by 55% and reducing free radicals by up to 50%.

Its simple, mess free and keeps you protected when outdoors. Their patented fern extract of Polypodium leucotomous is currently the only agent known to provide oral sun protection. It also improves your skin’s inner defenses by preventing and reducing cellular damage caused by UV rays and free radicals. 

The best bit? I no longer have to run from one shady patch to the next like a demented vampire when walking my poor embarrassed dog, all thanks to Heliocare oral!
