With the first summer sun at long last arriving, our thoughts turn to holidays, lazing around in the sun and beautifully bronzed skin. Whilst sun-kissed skin looks great today, the damage of those harmful UV rays is unmistakable tomorrow, leaving freckles, liver spots and uneven pigmentation in its wake.
Dr. Erich Schulte, founder of QMS Medicosmetics, sheds some interesting light on the how environmental factors adversely affect your skin. Dr. Schulte worked at the Maxillo Facial Department for reconstructive plastic surgery at the Göttingen University Clinic in Germany.
QUESTION to Dr Schulte:
With regard to environmental factors – the sun, etc – does this affect everyone in the same way? No, as the more pigmented your skin, the less harmful are the UV rays. I do always recommend that everyone protect their skin as UV rays are everywhere, and if you are in the sun, always use a sun protection that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Even on an overcast day, up to 80% of UV rays pierce through the clouds and with water reflection, sun exposure increases by 50%.
Cellular Sun Protection SPF 50+
Cellular Sun Protection SPF 50 is a lightweight formulation with balanced UVA/UVB protection and a DNA-Repair Complex that provides protection against sunburn and premature light-induced skin aging. The DNA of the skin cells are protected and the skin’s DNA repair mechanisms are activated.
“Our new Cellular Sun Protection SPF 50 is designed to provide maximum sun protection with a balanced UVA/UVB filter system. This helps protect against sunburn and long term skin damage as well as premature ageing even in extreme environmental conditions,” says Dr. Erich Schulte.

Intravital Plus Capsules
Leading the way in nutricosmetics, Intravital Plus offers skin regeneration from a supplement. Each capsule contains all necessary vitamins to recondition, regenerate and protect the skin’s structure from within. The high proportion of beneficial ingredients ensures an improvement in skin quality and a general feeling of well-being, beauty and vitality from a capsule.
QUESTION TO DR SCHULTE: How important are supplements? “This is skin regeneration from within. Our diet is generally lacking in certain vital minerals and vitamins and as we age, absorption also becomes more difficult. I do recommend Intravital, as each capsule contains the necessary vitamins to recondition, regenerate and protect the natural skin structure from within. The hydrolysed collagen is effectively absorbed and skin quality is improved.”
