Lamelle Ovelle D3 @ R640 | Excessive unprotected sun exposure in the long term leads to aesthetic changes in the quality of the skin, such as pigment and textural irregularities. It could also lead to various types of skin cancer. While sunscreen protects from the outside, an oral anti-oxidant, such as Lamelle’s Ovelle D3, can assist to reduce cellular DNA damage from the inside out. Just remember, it’s not a substitute for sunscreen!



Heliocare Spray SPF50 @ R481 OR Heliocare Oil-free Gel SPF50 @ R338 | Heliocare is formulated with Fernblock – a natural sun protection substance extracted from the fern plant of South America. It protects against UVB and UVA radiation. Heliocare’s special UVINUL A Plus filter has excellent anti-ageing properties due to its absorption of deep penetrating long-wave UVA rays. It neutralises damaging free radical activity via antioxidants and repairs cellular DNA damage. Heliocare also stimulates the collagen of the skin resulting in an anti-ageing effect.



SkinCeuticals Physical Eye UV Defense SPF50 @ R460 | This broad-spectrum cream hydrates and softens the skin around the eye contour as it shields it from environmental damage. The natural tint enhances and evens skin tone, so it can be applied before make-up. It contains moisture-locking ceramides that increase firmness and elasticity, while promoting a soft and supple texture. This cream also asissts in preventing fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.



Lamelle Nourish Rescue Repair Gel @ R405 | This is the ideal additive to rapidly suppress sun-induced injury, soothe the injury and cool the damaged skin. It contains the maximum concentration of Pycnogenol, which significantly reduces skin damage after laser, IPL and sun exposure.
