In a previous article in our Summer Skincare Series, we abolished a widespread myth that the sun is always bad for you. Sunlight, while accessed in a controlled manner, is healthy and necessary for us as it provides necessary Vitamin D, and actually protects you from some forms of cancer. This exposure needs however to be controlled and limited so it doesn't cause accelerated aging and skin cancer.
The bad sunlight (UVA rays) forces the skin to put up defenses by activating an immune reaction in the form of inflammation that is visible as sunburn. When you increase your body's immune system capabilities, combined with using natural sunscreens and/or protective clothing, you protect your skin from sun damage much more effectively.
So, your sun-protection has to involve both a topical and internal approach...with FOOD!
