Question

Can you recommend a sunscreen for sensitive skin?

Submitted by Tamy Botha on 1 May 2019

Answer

Hello, Thank you for your question. We have several sunscreen options available, but for a sensitive skin I would recommend Heliocare 360 Mineral Tolerance Fluid SPF 50. This sunscreen is specifically formulated for sensitive and irritated skin as it contains no chemicals. The active ingredients are a combination of Fernblock (a potent antioxidant) , Green tea, Vit C and Vit E. It is very light weight and non-sticky. A sensitive skin is normally a sign that the skin barrier function is disrupted, you might want to get it looked at by one of our Medical professionals. By repairing your skin barrier function, we can alleviate most of the sensitivity. This will ensure your skin can function properly and perform its vital functions such as protection and hydration. Lamelle Serra range is an excellent homecare range specifically designed to repair a disrupted skin barrier, please visit www.onlineskinshop.co.za/product-brand/lamelle-serra/to find out more about the products.

I’m 60 years old and relatively well preserved, but the veins on my forehead stand out, which is exacerbated by hot weather or if I bend down. Can they be removed? or concealed with subcutaneous fat injections?

Is it going to damage my skin and have negative consequences later in life?
