There's nothing like a warm, sunny summer's day to put you in high spirits. But while any glimpse of the sun we get here in Britain is something to look forward to, it's also something to be cautious of. In the latest issue of Psychologies, the beauty pages touch on the ways to protect and nurture your skin during the holiday season. The latest innovation in supplement sun care protects the skin from within, so you will never find yourself entirely exposed.
ONÇA, £156 for 60 sachets (oncacompany.com), is an innovative new supplement that comes in powder form and contains 21 natural ingredients, including grape seed extract, a powerful antioxidant. It also contains buriti, a fruit renowned for its phenomenal production of beta-carotene - proven to help the skin neutralise free radicals and protect from harmful UV rays and sun damage. Taking ONÇA twice a day does not replace the effectiveness of a high SPF sun lotion, but, used in conjunction with one, has the potential to reduce the damaging, short term effects of the sun, including burning and redness as well as long term effects such as sun spots or pigmentation.
Colladeen® Visage, £18.95 for 60 tablets (naturesbest.co.uk), another summer-friendly supplement, encourages skin to adopt the same natural protection as plants employ and has been clinically proven to equip skin with a natural SPF10 as well as visibly improving its elasticity and evening out skin tone.
The July issue of Psychologies is available to buy in stores now.
