Can oral sunscreens be even more effective than topical sunscreens? Carrie tests out the Heliocare Purewhite Radiance Whitening Supplement capsules to see if it works as well or better.

I have recently started using Heliocare Purewhite Radiance, an oral whitening supplement that works alongside your topical or oral sunscreens to prevent UV damage, brighten complexion, fight early signs of ageing and achieving glowing radiant skin.

Oral whitening supplements are not new to me and I’m convinced of their efficacy. An imperative part of any daily skincare regime, sunblock needs to be constantly reapplied for it to be effective. Having an oral whitening supplement that works as a second line of defense is a must if you, like me, tend to get tanned easily.

I’ve been a long-time user of Hakubi White C from Sato, an oral supplement touted to help improve overall skin condition as well as brighten skin with prolonged usage. I found Hakubi White C, with its high dosage of Vitamin C, very effective and experienced visible results within three months. The only downside was that I had to religiously take two pills three times a day. As such, I tended to forget to take my pills.

For the Heliocare Purewhite Radiance Whitening Supplement Capsules, all you need is to pop one capsule in the morning and one in the evening. The capsules work their magic through the day, protecting your skin from harmful free radicals with powerful anti-oxidant activity through ingredients in the trademarked FernblockTM Technology and WhiteTech Complex.

Heliocare Purewhite Radiance is halal certified and is safe to use alongside other pills and whitening skincare.

As with all whitening products, continuous use means more obvious results. With a one month supply of Heliocare, results are minimal especially if you’re very active outdoors and tend to stay under the sun. I’m actually wondering if the results would have been optimal if used alongside the oral sunblock, Heliocare Oral! 

The Heliocare Purewhite Radiance capsules are available in a bottle of 60 capsules at selected medical clinics island-wide for S$135 (before GST).
