Hada Labo Tokyo’s Sun-Care Collection – Unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage to the skin, eyes, and immune system and with a warm summer in full swing and many of us heading off to even warmer climates for the summer break, it is important to take sun protection precautions.
A reckless approach to sun care is putting huge numbers of people at risk of skin damage, premature ageing, and melanoma.
It is easy to underestimate the strength of UK sunshine. I am sure many of us have suffered a bout of sunburn because of the British sunshine and even sustained multiple episodes of sunburn on the off chance of being outside and uncovered when the sun is at its peak.
Even with the use of sun cream, users must be aware of usage instructions. Sun cream must be re-applied regularly to exposed skin and this is often missed if you are out in the sun for long periods of time. Unfortunately, repetitive sunburn can dramatically increase the risk of skin cancer and more care must be taken when outside.
GP and TV medic, Dr Hilary Jones notes: “This is a very important take-home message, we not only underestimate the power of the sun when we’re at home, but we also underestimate what is needed to protect against sunburn.
“Everyone knows the risks of sun damage. There are almost 17,000 new cases of melanoma skin cancer and around 2,300 preventable deaths every year, and those numbers are rising steadily.
Millions of pounds are spent on awareness campaigns, yet there continues to be a potentially lethal gap between awareness and actions.”
Hada Labo Tokyo has addressed the challenges of skin damage that can be caused by exposure to the sun, with two new game-changing sun care products which combine the very latest skin science and innovations.
Featuring 50SPF face cream and sun lotion formats — they protect against sunburn and the signs of ageing on multiple fronts:
Three different UV filters provide proven protection against both UVA and UVB via physical and chemical modes of action.
Anti-ageing ingredients include three forms of hyaluronic acid:
Sodium Hyaluronate — a water-binding hydration hero which helps replenish moisture lost from the outer-most layer of skin. Each molecule can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.
Super Hyaluronic Acid — also known as sodium acetylated hyaluronate, which was developed to increase affinity with the skin and lock in moisture to provide prolonged hydration.
Nano Hyaluronic Acid — also known as hydrolysed hyaluronic acid, is made up of even smaller molecules, to maximise moisture retention deep within the epidermis and help combat wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
Squalane — a moisturising lipid, which is found in human sebum, helps to repair the skin barrier, boosts collagen and counteracts wrinkles.
Panthenol — an antioxidant and lubricant derived from vitamin B5 which enhances the appearance and feel of the skin.
This new Hada Labo Tokyo sunscreen for the face is a light cream with an SPF50, providing the highest protection against sun rays. The cosmetic uses top-quality, photostable filters to shield the skin against harmful UVA and UVB radiation which can be the main cause of skin spots or discolourations.
Besides forming an effective shield against UVA and UVB radiation –– this air-light cream has potent anti-ageing properties. The face cream includes Panthenol, which helps to regenerate collagen and elastin, while the Hada Labo Tokyo signature ingredient, Super Hyaluronic Acid, is intensely moisturising, ensuring the skin is very well hydrated.
Water-Resistant Moisturising Sunscreen: Sun Lotion SPF 50
Featuring all the incredible benefits of the exclusive face cream, as well as protection from sun damage and signs of ageing, the new Hada Labo SPF 50 Sun Lotion makes sunny days a breeze. A dry-touch consistency, delivered in a quick-absorbing and non-greasy formula makes the lotion a dream to apply — even on wet skin and has an SPF 50 giving you the highest protection against sun rays.
This is thanks to the skin scientists at Hada Labo Tokyo bottling up the very latest clinically proven quality, photostable filters to shield the skin against harmful UVA and UVB radiation. And to hydrate the skin thoroughly, vital for when in the sun, the New Hada Labo Tokyo Water-Resistant Moisturising Sun Lotion SPF50 contains three intensively moisturising Super Hyaluronic Acid ingredients to help prolong skin hydration needs and bust ageing in the sun. In addition, the sun lotion includes the regenerating Panthenol and rebuilding anti-ageing ingredients – Collagen and Elastin.
Offering the highest protection against sun rays, Hada Labo gets the thumbs up from Women Talking. The sun care SPF 50 for the face and for the body have been used regularly and we have been happy with the results for both.
