How to Apply Sunscreen Inside Your Body
Remember when we first started wearing masks in the spring, and everyone joked about the tan lines on our face that we’d have?
Now that we are in our fourth month of wearing masks, these tan lines are becoming a reality for many people!
The moral of the story is – don’t forget to wear sunscreen.
And, in addition to sunscreen, there’s a natural way you can protect your skin from the inside out – Oligonol®!
If you’re not familiar with Oligonol®, it’s our superstar anti-aging supplement. Made from lychee fruit extract (a powerful antioxidant), Oligonol boosts circulation, which helps the body deliver vital nutrients to the collection, including the skin. As a result, it’s been clinically proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots on the surface.
That’s not all. In addition to helping you battle the tell-tale signs of aging skin, Oligonol also acts as a natural sunscreen. It works by protecting the skin from harmful UV rays that lead to sun damage and painful sunburns.
In addition to wearing sunscreen and supplementing with Oligonol®, here are some other ways to protect your skin this summer:
Don’t wait until you’re outside to put on sunscreen. It takes about 20 minutes to absorb into the skin, so put it on before you venture outdoors.
Minimize sun exposure during the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. This is when the sun’s rays are strongest. As a rule of thumb, if your shadow is shorter than you, the sun is powerful and doing the most damage. If you are outside during these times, you must wear sunscreen (and take Oligonol®).
We also recommend finding shade at regular intervals to give your skin a break.
Cover skin with lightweight materials. By making sure your arms and legs are covered, you can reduce sun exposure. Darker elements block more light-colored fabrics, but they’re also warmer. You can also opt for clothing made with unique sun-protective materials.
Don’t forget to accessorize! Add a hat to shield your face and sunglasses with UV absorption to help protect your eyes and skin.
Load up on foods that offer natural sun protection. These include:
- Hemp and chia seeds
- Leafy greens
- Green tea
For maximum effectiveness, eat these foods during the day, either before or directly after sun exposure.
