    Heliocare 360º Water Gel protects your skin by absorbing high-energy light and neutralising free radicals. At the same time, Fernblock FC –  Heliocare’s proprietary Fernblock fern extract fortified with ferulic acid and caffeic acid – works to ward off UV damage.

    HOW TO USE IT

    Shake the tube thoroughly, squeeze out two finger-long stripes of gel, and then apply them evenly to your face. Work the gel all the way up to your hairline and around your eyes, avoiding getting the gel in your eyes themselves.

    To maintain effective protection, reapply Water Gel every two hours of high exposure and after swimming, after sweating, or after towelling your skin dry.

    What is infrared-A?

    Infrared-A – IR-A for short – is infrared light that penetrates through your epidermis (the outermost main layer of skin) and reaches the dermis, the second main layer. IR-A is contained in sunlight and encourages skin ageing and skin damage by generating free radicals that degrade your collagen and elastin, the key proteins that keep your skin strong and stretchy (respectively). If you want to prevent premature ageing and keep your skin in good shape, protecting it against IR-A exposure is vital.

    What is HEVL?

    HEVL is the abbreviation for High Energy Visible Light, part of the light spectrum that’s visible to humans and that consists of high-energy light waves with a short wavelength. These light waves are typically in the blue and violet band, so they’re often called ‘blue light’. HEVL is naturally present in sunlight, but LED screens (such as those on smartphones, tablets, and laptops) and LED lightbulbs also emit HEVL, albeit in much smaller amounts.

    What are the Fitzpatrick Skin Types?

    The Fitzpatrick Skin Type Chart is a quick-reference classification system for evaluating human skin’s response to ultraviolet light. The chart defines six skin types, Skin Type I through Skin Type VI. Skin Type I is very fair skin that never tans and has a high risk of burning. Skin Type II is fair skin that tans mildly and burns easily. Skin Type III is olive skin that tans well but burns sometimes. Skin Type IV is light-brown skin that tans easily and has a low risk of burning. Skin Type V is brown skin that tans very well and rarely burns. Skin Type VI is dark-brown skin that tans deeply and never burns.
