Can you feel the Summer holidays? They are so close I can’t wait! We have a gorgeous beach house just on the ocean and are going to spend a few days there after Christmas with our family. Think long lazy lunches and and beaching all day. That is why I was so glad I was sent the new Heliocare 360 Pediatrics range to try out on Elijah. The weather in Cape Town is also hot already and we have had lots of pool days where we have tested out all of these fantastic products.
Sun protection is so important for all children, especially Elijah as he is very fair and I see more and more freckles appearing on his face. Also babies and children have 30% thinner skin than adults, they have a lower concentration of melanin and their skins are dry and dehydrated during the early months of their lives. They also have an incomplete skin barrier making them very vulnerable to sun exposure. So lather them up everyday!
Heliocare is perfect for the entire family and I have actually used Heliocare on my face for years. I love it because I have such sensitive eyes and Heliocare doesn’t irritate them. I also know my face is so well protected.
The Fernblock Technology of Heliocare- which is present in all Heliocare products makes Heliocare the best sun protection around! “Fernblock is a natural extract from Polypodium Leucotomos, a tropical Central American fern which evolved from an aquatic to land plant. developing strong protective and repair mechanisms against UV radiation.”
At the same time of protection, it repairs DNA damage and promotes positive skin health. Which is what we need for all our children.
We were sent the 3 types of sun care.
The Atopic Lotion Spray, Mineral and Lotion.
The Mineral and the Atopic spray can be used from 6 months and up and the Lotion can be used from 3 months and up. So far we are loving the Atopic Lotion Spray for Elijah’s body and the Mineral for his face for every day. Both the Atopic Lotion Spray and the Lotion are water resistant so that is what we used this weekend for a day by the pool with no sun burn at all! They all sink into his skin so easily and do not leave a white cast on his very fair skin. The application has been so easy even for my little boy who would rather be running down the beach or jumping into the pool than having his sun block applied.
“Heliocare 360 Pediatrics range is regarded as one of the leading manufacturers in the world when it comes to full-spectrum UV protection for children. The range of products protect against the 4 types of radiation (UVB, UVA, Visible light, and Infrared) in a hydrating, easy to apply formula.”
