I will never forget my first visit to a Dermal Clinic. I was 20, and suffering from some pretty severe cystic and hormonal acne.
My initial consult with the team at Victorian Dermal Group was eye opening to say the least. I was so enamoured with fixing my acne that I never stopped to consider my skin health overall.
The defining moment for me was when I saw my skin photographed under the Ultra Violet light displaying all sun exposure and pigmingation. I was shocked at just how much sun damage my 20 year old skin had endured, not to mention the risks of Skin Cancer and Melanoma. Thankfully most of it had yet to reach the surface and i still had time to correct . I vowed right then and there to make a change and have been a lover of all things sun protection since.
SPF 50+ Sunscreen, Sunglasses and Baseball caps are my go-to’s all summer long keeping me SunSmart and the UV damage at bay.
I’ve never been one to settle for mediocrity so when I heard about the launch of an innovative sun shield that offers 99% UVA and UVB protection I knew I had to give it a whirl.
Ladies and gentlemen I present to you..
HALO – By Dermal Hub
So what exactly is it?
The HALO face shield is a Sun protective visor. It encompasses a UV 400 Protective film – UV 400 is considered the highest form of protection provided by lenses against Ultraviolet Radiation .
Why do you need it?
The HALO works as a defence on the most sensitive part of your skin (the face). Blocking harmful UV rays as a first defence against sunburn.
Used in conjunction with sunblock, the HALO visor can minimise the risk of skin cancers and melanoma.
As an added bonus to your skin health, it also works to lessen wrinkles, spots and discolouration bought on by direct sun exposure.
Why do I love it?
In my opinion this baby is completely changing beach culture. It’s chic and fashionable but also super practical and most importantly SunSmart. It’s completely transparent when worn so enables me to sit and read a book or scroll ‘the gram’. It decreases sun exposure to not only the face and neck but also for my eyes and I’ve even been rocking it on my daily walks (copped a few stares I’ll be honest).
Overall, I highly recommend any product that encourages SunSmart practices coupled with anti aging benefits, all while looking fashionable AF!
A Win/Win in my book and a fantastic addition to my beach bag used in conjunction with sunscreen.
