Heliocare-Rafa-Nadal

Heliocare presents their new awareness campaign featuring Rafa Nadal “Give Your All for what  matters, never to the sun” , with the aim of raising awareness of the need to look after your skin while being active outdoors to prevent damage from sun exposure and bigger problems further down the line.

The campaign comes at a crucial moment. Now more than ever we need to be aware of the importance of staying protected. Health professionals say that being sheltered indoors for some time means our skin isn’t ready for the intensity of sunshine it is about to get.

How not to give your all to the sun:

Heliocare, the advanced medical sunscreen brand, stresses the importance of good sun protection not just through topical products that provide broad-spectrum protection and repair sun damage but also capsules to boost resistance to the sun and protect you from the inside.

Fernblock®, the patented active ingredient exclusive to Heliocare, has 25 years of proven experience and over 60 studies of scientific evidence endorsing the way it acts on and repairs sun damage at cell level. “I’m going to keep on giving it my all on court, but not to the sun,” Rafa Nadal said. “I’ve spent my fair share of time outdoors and hope to keep doing so. But my dermatologist made me take a good, hard look at my lifestyle and now I want to do better and include some healthy habits into my daily routines.” 

“I can’t keep on neglecting my skin. I trust Heliocare because it’s the most advanced medical sunscreen both for creams and its Heliocare Oral Capsules. I think they’re a huge step forward for a person like me who sweats so much and spends so much time out in the sun,” said the 19-times Grand Slam title winner.

Heliocare 360 Oral Capsules (30 capsules)
RRSP – R600-00

Heliocare 360˚ Capsules are a potent anti-oxidant supplement that’s clinically proven to help attack against the free radicals that can accelerate aging.

Free radicals damage vital skin cells and tissues which, over time, accelerates the visible aging of the skin, causes uneven areas of pigmentation, and can damage skin health. Exposure to daylight and the sun is the main cause of free radicals within the skin.

Even the highest-level broad-spectrum topical protection is not enough to protect skin against these free radicals – this is especially the case during extended periods of time spent outdoors, or holidays.

There are times when protection of the skin “from within” to enhance the use of the Heliocare topical “on-the-skin” products can be important. This is normally during times of high-level UV exposure or risk which can be due to skin-type, an outdoor lifestyle, time of year and activities such as summer holidays or skiing, or impaired skin-health that can be due to a medical condition, or aesthetic or medical procedure.

Indication: 

  • Photodermatosis treatments
  • Photosensitising treatments
  • Dermocosmetic procedures
  • History of skin cancer
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Adjuvant in phototherapy
  • Eye protection (given by Lutein)
  • Cutaneous intolerance to sunlight

Heliocare 360˚ Capsules are a powerful anti-oxidant supplement, clinically proven to help defend against the free radicals that can age your skin beyond your years and impair skin health. Each Heliocare 360˚capsule contains Fernblock+, a uniquely prepared extract from the clinically proven fern Polypodium Leucotomos that helps to protect the skin from within, providing powerful antioxidant activity against free radicals.

The anti-oxidant activity in Fernblock+ is boosted with the addition of a sophisticated complex of N-acetylcysteine, Vitamins B3, C, and E, and Prebiotics.

The fantastic Fernblock anti-oxidant activity is also clinically proven to reduce the appearance of PLE; an unsightly red, blotchy rash that affects 10%-15% of the population!

– Powerful antioxidant protection.
– Suitable for all skin types.

Directions:

  • Take one capsule in the morning in addition to the application of your favorite Heliocare 360˚ topical product, especially during times of high exposure to the sun or prolonged periods of time spent outside.

All of the Heliocare products are available online at DermaStore or Skin Miles and from selected Aesthetic Medical Practitioners and medi-spas nationwide.
