Sunscreen for the Olympics

Mr Banwell notes this recent article in an Australian newspaper. Whether wearing a one piece or two piece swimsuit, you need to protect yourself. Mr Banwell recommends Heliocare SPF 50 which is available in neutral, light and dark tint.

Canberra Times, March 29 2012

”A new swimsuit war has broken out four months from the Olympics.

It pits Australian swim team sponsor Speedo against other brands including Adidas, the uniform sponsor for the overall Games team.

The new row is not about exotic materials, but it does carry some echoes of swimming’s dark ”super suit” era, when 255 world records were smashed in two years until world body FINA banned the controversial polyurethane outfits in 2010.

The Australian Olympic Committee has allowed swimmers at this year’s London Games to apply for permission to use suits other than Speedo, and many are taking up the chance. They include adidas-sponsored sprinters Cate and Bronte Campbell, the first siblings in 40 years to represent Australia in swimming.

”We have found the adidas suit is by far the best suit out there, and swimming in Speedo will impair our performances,” said Cate Campbell, the 19-year-old who won two bronze medals in Beijing. ”We believe 100 per cent adidas provides the best suit possible, so it’s another stress we don’t have to worry about.”

Cate Campbell described the situation as a repeat of the dilemma facing Australian swimmers at the 2009 world championships in Rome, where 43 world records fell.

”Speedo didn’t have the super suits and they were sponsoring the Australian swim team, so all the Speedo-sponsored athletes were having to worry about what suit to wear,” she said. ”It’s just that all over again.”

Cosmeceuticals for your Skin

Phloretin CF® represents a new class of preventive and corrective topical antioxidant treatment. After five years of extensive research, SkinCeuticals developed this patent-pending breakthrough technology combining the newly-discovered, broad-range power of phloretin with vitamin C and ferulic acid in a biodiverse formulation to divide and conquer sources of damage at every level.

Phloretin CF is a broad-spectrum treatment protecting against not only free radicals, but the range of other reactive molecules known to cause damage and DNA mutations among the integral cell types. In addition, it corrects existing damage by stimulating the synthesis of essential proteins and fibers and accelerating cell turnover. The result — a strengthened support structure on the inside and a more youthful, firm, radiant appearance on the outside.

Phloretin CF is available in Brighton, East Grinstead, Worthing and Tunbridge Wells.  Book your complimentary skin consultation with Mr Banwell’s Senior Aesthetic Nurse, Judi Critchard.
