Don’t tuck sun protection away with your swimwear this fall! There may not be a lot of your body for the sun to reach in the fall and winter, but if your face is exposed, you’re still vulnerable. Powerful UVA rays are around all year and can cause significant damage to your skin.
Apply a moisturizer with SPF 30 to your face as part of your daily skincare routine; couple that with a daily dose of an antioxidant supplement like Heliocare® ($29.99; Walgreens). An extract from a well-studied tropical fern called Polypodium leucotomos, Heliocare®has been shown to help maintain the skin’s ability to protect against sun-related effects and aging.*
Polypodium leucotomos has been evaluated for over 30 years by scientists and dermatologists in several countries, including the US. It harnesses the natural and powerful antioxidants in Polypodium leucotomos extract, which aid in eliminating free radicals produced by sun exposure. A reduction in these free radicals helps to maintain younger, more resilient skin.*
