Sun Strategy

The sun boosts our immunity, regulates our hormones and keeps us on the sunny side of life! The best source of Vitamin D is produced by the body by receiving the sun’s energy through our eyes and skin. Too much of a good thing is still too much… How can we prevent sunburns and skin damage in the heat of summer, especially while we are our actively enjoying it? Eat antioxidant rich veggies and fruits, especially those in the orange, red and yellow spectrum. Drink pure, alkaline water. Wear a mineral sunscreen with herbs and organic butters like shea and coconut. Zinc and titanium effectively slow both UVA and UVB rays. These two mineral oxides provide a healing protective barrier to the skin. Many chemical sunscreens don’t address the longer UVA tanning rays that can cause deep DNA damage, and they have been implicated in skin cancer and hormone disruption.
