A Healthy Dose of SPF

A Healthy Dose of SPF

When it comes to the naked eye, on a scale of one to 10, or blah-to-flawless…how do you rate your skin? Now get under the ultraviolet light and see how you really feel!

Your epidermis doesn’t lie. It’s like a road map of where you’ve been along the way and how you take care of yourself. For every action, there is a reaction.

It’s quite possible that public health messages have over-done it with spreading sunscreen lectures. Some exposure is actually beneficial for our well-being and overall health. After all, heart deaths have been linked to low vitamin D levels.

A wise approach; everything in moderation. Overdoing it is not in style, nor safe. Sun damage…skin cancer…no thanks! Relying on botox and fillers to prevent those wrinkles is just not enough. #SunSmart

Summer is a great time to stock up on vitamin D from the sun.

Even though winter is approaching, the temperatures are dropping, and it feels like we will be deprived – it’s important to remember; the sun shines all year round. The sun’s rays can be just as intense.

Want to maintain a healthy glow without negative side effects?

There are many variables when it comes to skin pigmentation and how much UV-B is recommended to get the appropriate daily-dose of sun. A nutritious amount of sun exposure per day sans sunscreen is: 10 minutes’ midday if you’re fair skinned. Dark skinned, and even the elderly produce less Vitamin D therefore more exposure is suggested.

The inevitable still boils down to three letters: SPF.
