Oral and Topical Photoprotection
Outdoor activities play a part of a healthy lifestyle. The sun is a source of health and well-being but can also have negative consequences on the skin. Enjoy and protect yourself from the sun with Heliocare®!
Solar radiation is a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiations issued by the sun. Within this spectrum, and depending on its wavelength, we find different radiations.
Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is the best known and studied, nevertheless, Infrared (IR) and visible (VIS) radiation make the largest percentage in solar radiation and have been under study for the last years.
Skin has different self defense mechanisms for solar protection. These mechanisms are mainly two: melanin synthesis, determined by cutaneous phototypes, and the keratinization or thickening of the most superficial skin layer.
These mechanisms, although effective, are not enough to protect us appropriately from solar radiation. This is the reason why topical photoprotection and oral photoprotection play an important role.
