All The Details On Heliocare & Heliocare Advanced

If you are one who seeks out the latest and greatest ways of doing things, you may have stumbled upon the promise of an ingestible sunscreen. Although taking a pill in lieu of your sunscreen isn’t a reality just yet, Heliocare, a supplement that fights the damaging effects of the sun, can improve the overall health of your skin and reduce signs of aging.

Heliocare Can Make Your Skin Healthier and More Resilient

Heliocare is a dietary supplement created to strengthen and protect the skin by harboring the power of a plant. Sunscreen in a pill isn’t a reality just yet, but the potent antioxidants found in Heliocare help protect your skin from the effects of free radicals that can cause wrinkles, discoloration, and other signs of aging and sun damage.

Polypodium leucotomos extract, or PLE, is obtained from a type of Central and South American fern. This natural ingredient, which is what sets Heliocare apart from other products that contain vitamins and antioxidants, was chosen based on its natural ability to protect the fern from the elements.

Although Heliocare is not meant to be used as a replacement for sunscreen, it can be beneficial for people with very fair skin who struggle to avoid sunburns even when using sunscreen properly. Heliocare’s Fernblock PLE technology and other antioxidants can make the skin more resilient, including skin that is especially prone to damage. These ingredients work together to make the skin appear healthier, younger, and more nourished.

Heliocare Advanced Adds Nicotinamide

Heliocare Advanced includes all of the benefits of the original formula with the added benefit of nicotinamide or a form of Vitamin B3.

Dr. Jennifer Vickers with Sanova Dermatology at Bee Cave and Lakeway explains, “When taken consistently, nicotinamide has been shown to help prevent the formation of precancers and non-melanoma skin cancers in randomized controlled trials.”

Although the creation of ingestible sunscreen is still in the works, you can boost the overall health of your skin by proactively using products, such as Heliocare, that reduce damage to the skin caused by free radicals and sun exposure.
