Sunscreen: Necessary even in winter
It may be that when you hear the word sunscreen your mind travels to sandy beaches or to an island, but in reality the application of sun cream is necessary all year round, regardless of the season and the weather.
Up to 80% of the sun’s rays can pass through clouds, so if you think it’s okay to skip your sunscreen on a cloudy day, it’s time to reconsider. Consider that snow reflects up to 80% of UV radiation, increasing the risk of sun damage.Also, the higher the altitude, the higher the UV exposure, so sunscreen is vital even if you’re going… skiing.
Why you should wear sunscreen in winter too:
-Prevents premature aging of the skin
-Protects the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays
-Reduces the risk of skin cancer
-Ensures even skin tone (prevents melasma)

Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
