Why we recommend

 If you find that regular sunscreen makes your skin breakout, this oil-free gel can be just the ticket to fret-free sun exposure. Heliocare 360º Oil-Free Gel is an SPF50 sunscreen with the PA++++ rating that denotes extremely high protection against UVA rays. This gel goes on easily, leaving your skin feeling dry rather than greasy and with a matte look rather than a sheen.

    Once you apply Heliocare 360º Oil-Free Gel to your skin, its advanced filters and BioShield System help protect your skin by absorbing high-energy light and neutralising free radicals.

    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 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.
