The Future Of Sun Protection Is Here Today! Dr. Tess is proud to introduce the first comprehensive pill to support sun protection as well as promote brighter skin tone, production of collagen, and skin health and beauty!Helioplus is a natural dietary supplement tablet that has been scientifically formulated to support healthy skin and the skin's natural defenses against damaging solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The sun is the most important cause of prematurely aging skin. Overall, exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight (UVA or UVB) accounts for about 90% of the symptoms of skin aging. Even small amounts of UV radiation trigger the processes leading to visible photo damage, wrinkles, darker skin tones and premature aging. Sunlight damages collagen fibers (the major protein that gives structure to skin), elastin (a protein that maintains elasticity and strength of tissue beneath the skin), and it can also damage the critical vascular bed (fine capillaries) that provide oxygen & nutrients to skin tissue and remove waste.While the first line of defense should always be a barrier-type protection such as Marini Physical Protectant SPF 45 (also available in our clinics), we now know that powerful antioxidants and special concentrated skin nutrients can help boost the skin's natural defenses against the damaging effects of sunlight. These nutrients also nourish the skin and can promote anti-aging skin benefits that may alter the "normal" course of aging. Helioplus contains a scientifically formulated, unique blend of natural bioactive nutrients including Polypdium Leucotomos, Green Tea Polyphenols, L-Glutathione, Collagen, Lipowheat, and essential vitamins and minerals that promote skin health & beauty. They can also help to lighten the tone of skin that has become darker over the years as a result of cumulative sun exposure and the normal aging process.
