Best Oral Supplement for Sun Protection: Heliocare Oral Capsules, $57.75

Whether you’re lounging on the beach or pounding the pavement in the city, your skin needs protection from the ever-prevalent sun rays. While most of us remember to slather on sunscreen before leaving the house, few remember that topical sunscreens require re-application every two to three hours. What’s more, some parts of the body, like the neck, ears, arms and shoulders, also often get left out in the application of sunscreen, leading to them becoming vulnerable to the potential damages that UV rays have on our skin.

Supplement your topical sunscreen with Heliocare’s Oral Capsules. At the heart of its formula is the patented, all-natural botanical extract Fernblock, derived from a South American fern. This active botanical ingredient was researched and tested at the Harvard Medical School for over 12 years, and has been clinically proven to be highly effective in protecting skin cells from sun damage from the inside-out.

Besides increasing skin’s resistance to sunburn, Heliocare’s Oral Capsules also inhibits collagen degradation, increases skin tissue repair, reduces free radicals, protects skin’s DNA from damage, prevents hyperpigmentation and staves off skin ageing.

Available at selected Guardian, Metro, Robinsons, Watsons, Unity stores; hospital pharmacies; and www.heliocare.com.sg/shop
