Our friends over at Lamelle Research Laboratories have created an awesome new product! Helase 50 protects and heals your skin from sun damage. They are giving one of you a chance to win a hamper including the product and a sun hat!
Did you know it is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month? According to The Skin Cancer Foundation increased sun exposure in childhood increases skin cancer risks later in life. Not many people know the truth about conventional sunscreen: it’s only 53% effective.
This fact was established in a study that measured sunscreen protection. It found that even SPF 50 only stops about half of the potential sun damage to your little one’s skin. After decades of being told to use sunscreen every day, this new information is disconcerting at best. What’s more, even antioxidants aren’t quite as effective as once assumed; blocking only a percentage of the damage caused by the sun.
To understand why you and your family are not adequately covered with ordinary sunscreen, it’s important to appreciate the onslaughts our skin contends with every day. Dangerous UV radiation from the sun literally assaults the skin. It causes sunburn, hyperpigmentation and, over time, general deterioration at a DNA level. That deterioriation can result in ageing and even skin cancer.
The wavelengths of ultraviolet [UV] light – sunlight – that affect your skin include UV-A and UV-B, visible light and infrared light. The problem with conventional sunscreen is it’s only capable of offering partial protection from these solar rays. Don’t scrap the sunscreen, it is still a requirement 365 days a year! However, we need to do more in the fight against the damage caused by over exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.
The good news is that Lamelle Research Laboratories has launched Helase 50. Helase is a new photo repair skin cream. It protects your skin from the full spectrum of the sun’s harmful UV rays and repairs the DNA of skin cells that have already been damaged through over-exposure.
The only photo protection product on the market, very simply Helase controls the inflammation typical from exposure and sunburn, protecting the skin from damage. A powerful DNA-repairing enzyme that’s missing in humans, but occurs naturally in most animals and plants is responsible for the correction process. It also contains antioxidants, sunscreen filters and a ‘sunscreen’ SPF of 50+. It is the perfect way to head of the long term damage of your little one’s skin that most of us have had to contend with.
Helase is not waterproof. Apply it 10 – 15 minutes before exposure and re-apply 3 – 4 hourly if possible. There is no need to use a “regular” sunscreen if you use Helase. It’s fragrance free and anyone over the age of six months is a candidate for Helase 50, but particularly those with fair skin, multiple sun-spots, or a history of skin cancer. I
A first to market cosmetic, Helase is a breakthrough treatment and is the most advanced photo-repair cream in the Lamelle stable.
Helase RSP is R485 for a 50ml tube. Find it at selected salons nationwide. For further information visit http://www.lamelle.co.za.
