Daylong Sun Protection Official Launch

Did you know that too much UV radiation from the sun can damage genetic material (the DNA) in your skin cells? If the DNA builds up enough damage over time, it can cause cells to start growing out of control, which can lead to skin cancer. Well, as they all say, prevention is always better than cure and here i present to you the official launch of Daylong Sun Protection in Malaysia!

Your body has ways of repairing most of the damage. But it is not perfect, as  damaged DNA can be left behind. Your body's attempt to repair this damage is what causes the painful synths of a sunburn. Getting a painful sunburn just once every two years can triple the risk of melanoma. This is why it is important to avoid getting caught out by sunburn. Galderma, the Swiss-based global dermatology company, pioneering in dermatological solutions in the country launch Daylong sun protection with unrivalled scientific and dermatological expertise.

With its launch in Malaysia, Malaysians will finally be able to experience Daylong™ sun protection range of products. Consumers can enjoy an active lifestyle in the sun while making sure they are fully protected with medically proven Daylong™ sun protection. There is no doubt that a little sunlight is good for you!  The sun's rays provide warmth and light that enhance your general feeling of well-being and stimulate blood circulation. Some UV radiation is essential to the body as it stimulates the production of vitamin D. However there are certain risks involved which might burn, hurt, and damage, and long-term exposure can lead to skin conditions including premature skin aging and cancer.
