Do you still have questions about our capsules? Let's get to the bottom of it for you:⁠

🌿 What are Heliocare 360° capsules?⁠

They're skin-boosting supplements that help to protect your skin against the sun's rays while also repairing historical sun damage. ⁠

The active ingredients are:⁠
• Fernblock+: Powerful photoimmunoprotection activity⁠
• Niacinamide: DNA protection & reinforces skin barrier function⁠
• Vitamins C & E, N-Acetylcysteine: Anti-oxidant activity⁠
(Vitamin C also contributes to normal collagen production)⁠
• Fibruline & Bioecolians: prebiotics, protect and reinforce skin defences⁠


🌿 Who are they for?⁠

Anyone looking to boost their skin health, especially when it comes to sun protection.⁠

They're most beneficial for people who:⁠
• are undergoing skin treatments*⁠
• are exposed to the sun for long periods of the day⁠
• are prone to hyperpigmentation in the summer months⁠
• have light sensitivities both genetically and due to medication*⁠
• have a high risk of skin cancer⁠
• simply want to be better protected from the damaging effects of the sun⁠


🌿 When should I take them? ⁠

Take 1 capsule daily 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. We recommend these are taken every day, even in winter. Not because we want to sell you more, but because the active ingredients will continue to repair sun damage and they'll provide protection against UVA & visible light which are present all year, even during cloudy days.⁠

🌿 How fast do they work?⁠

They start working from the first capsule so there's no need to "pre-load" your system. It takes 30 minutes for the Fernblock® to reach the outer layers of your skin (the epidermis) and roughly 5 hours to metabolise.⁠


❗️Remember, Heliocare capsules are not a replacement for your topical sunscreen, they're recommended to be used alongside your sunscreen to help protect & repair from within.⁠


✴️ Please consult your healthcare/skincare professional and ask if Heliocare capsules are right for you.⁠

Have you had your skin checked lately?

Why not take a minute to make that appointment now while you're scrolling? It may just save your life.

New Zealand has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world, with over 4,000 people diagnosed, and over 350 deaths annually. ⁠

Melanoma is the third most common cancer in New Zealand and is a potentially serious type of skin cancer, in which there is uncontrolled growth of melanocytes (pigment cells). ⁠

One way to help prevent melanoma is by protecting and repairing the skin from sun radiation, knowing your skin by checking it regularly and visiting your dermatologist annually to check for any irregularities.​ ⁠

Early detection usually leads to a cure so don’t procrastinate!⁠

Remember that sometimes melanoma can develop in places that aren't always exposed to the sun so it's important to check your whole body. ⁠

For information on how to check at home, an indication of risk factors and even advice on what to do if you think you might have a suspicious spot (go straight to your GP!), there is loads of wonderful information at the Melanoma NZ website.⁠

We 💛 Fernblock®⁠! Here's why 👇️

Your current sunscreen might be preventing sunburn. But is it actually improving the health and appearance of your skin?⁠

🛡️ Fernblock is a unique extract containing powerful antioxidants that can improve your skin’s defences against four damaging types of radiation from the sun, UVA, UVB, visible light and infrared-A.

🌿 Fernblock is derived from the tropical fern Polypodium leucotomos, which can be found in Central and South America. Over time this plant developed powerful defence systems against solar radiation.⁠

🧬 Fernblock has anti-oxidant properties that can reduce the free radicals generated by sun exposure. It’s also been shown to prevent the formation of skin cell DNA damage and increase and accelerate its repair, helping to prevent the build-up of sun damage.⁠

The only sun protection system that fights damage & repairs skin while offering luxurious UV protection. How?⁠

Fernblock® 🌿⁠
Exclusive to the Heliocare range and developed at Harvard Medical School, Fernblock®'s benefits include the protection and stimulation of fibroblasts.⁠

Fibroblast cells create new collagen but UV damage reduces these cells in the skin which causes skin laxity (sagging) and the appearance of fine lines. ⁠

A 2009 study published in the Archives of Dermatological Research journal demonstrates Fernblock's anti-aging activity in the skin with & without UV radiation. Just another reason to use Heliocare year-round!⁠

You can find Heliocare at your favourite skin care clinic or online at www.heliocare.co.nz

Monday morning tip - It's important to remember to apply your sun protection as the last skincare product before your makeup ☀️

Makeup and skincare are unreliable when it comes to sun protection, with many offering just SPF 15. To get proper sun protection, you should always apply sunscreen underneath your cosmetics for ultimate sun protection.

UVA vs UVB - Are you wearing sunscreen today?

👉🏻 UVB damages your skin and causes sun burn in the summer months, and it’s the main cause of skin cancer.

👉🏻 UVA, visible light and infrared-A are also aspects of daylight that can damage your skin all year round – they not only cause premature skin ageing but can also damage the health of your skin.

Sunscreen is important all year round. Unless you live in a cave, your skin will be exposed to UV rays during the day.

Heading off to enjoy that fresh powder? Take your sunscreen!

Snow is highly reflective. On a sunny day, clean fresh snow can reflect up to 90% of UV radiation. Meaning you can be exposed to almost a double dose of UV – directly from the sun and bouncing off snow-covered surfaces.

Remember Heliocare capsules provide an additional layer of protection from within - and they're Informed Sports certified so no need to worry when comp time comes round.

"Athletes are also normal people. We have mornings when we don’t feel like getting up and going to work because we had a bad day, maybe didn’t sleep well or woke up more tired than usual, and it’s hard to feel motivated."

Not exactly sign language but you get the idea.

Applying the correct amount of sunscreen is important to achieving the SPF stated on the box.

Your protection drops drastically when you skimp, so always be generous when applying your sun protection and if it's too uncomfortable wearing that much, find one you CAN wear the right amount of.

Many of our stockists have samples and testers available for you to try, so head over to our Stockists page (link in bio) and find a clinic close to you. Your skin will thank you!
