Safe way to glowing skin

It's hot, hot, hot and we are a nation that loves to enjoy achieving a good sun tan. But how can we do this safely? We can wear a sun hat and sunglasses but we are still exposed to powerful and damaging rays.

We talk with skincare experts at Villabianca on how best to protect the skin on our face from sun damage and premature ageing. This applies to both men and women.

The Villabianca team recommend:

Daily defense spf 23: Use in the morning. This day cream will provide your skin with 12 hours of sun protection. Protects against UVA and UVB, moisturizes, has antioxidant effects and anti-aging effects, helps prevent sunburn. The product is without parabens, animal byproducts, dyes, phthalates, sulfates, gluten, mineral oil, propylene glycol, formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasers.

Kantic Calming: Use this product at night to repair the skin from exposure to the sun. It is rich in natural antioxidants derived from blueberries and grape seeds, this midweight cream hydrates, reduces redness, revives dull skin, and helps minimize the signs of stress and fatigue, leaving the skin youthful and radiant.

Kantic mask: To be used 3 times a week and in the evening. Leave on throughout the night where it will work to achieve a more balanced moisturizing of the skin, and a smoother looking complexion. Resveratrol, from grape skin and blueberry, has been found to be both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent, which is why it was chosen as a key ingredient in Kantic brightening moisture mask. Antioxidants such as quercetin, also found in blueberries, can neutralize free radicals and help prevent and reduce cell damage from free radicals. Quercetin also has an anti-inflammatory role making the blueberry Alchimie Forever’s favorite superfruit ingredient against inflammaging.

Serum pigment lightening: To use to avoid dark spots caused by the sun on your face and/or your hands. A cocktail of powerful anti-pigmentaion actives rejuvenates the skin by preventing sun damage, evening out the pigmentation, and lightening brown spots. Alchimie Forever’s signature ingredient, the blueberry, in synergy with vitamins C and E fights free radical damage to minimize the appearance of signs of premature aging.

All these products have been created without cruelty to animals and are vegan friendly. They can be purchased directly from the clinic Villabianca.

Dr. Jean-Luc Vigneron does say; "Creams protect, but there are beauty treatments feasible in summer, such as HIFU to treat the oval (facial contours) and re-densify the skin."

Dr. Jean-Luc Vigneron is an expert in dermatology and the founder of the Villabianca clinic.
