Sunlight and the Skin: Part 2

Top Tips and Natural Sun Protection
Our bodies are incredible and have inbuilt protective mechanisms to deal with the sun’s rays. To prepare the skin before intense sunshine, consume vitamin B6 every day for one week.
Natural sun-screen protection comes from plant oils and fats such as coconut, eucalyptus, jojoba, and shea butter. I use Zinc oxide and red raspberry seed oil in my Sun Serum as they are powerful, natural protectants against UVA and UVB damage. Zinc oxide is a mineral sunblock, reflecting UV’s away from the skin, before it can cause damage to the epidermis.
