Enjoy the sun...safely!

May 10, 2019

Summer is around the corner, and we all know what that means; time to layer up on sunscreen to block the sun’s UV rays. When it comes to protecting your skin from sun damage, there are many healthy SPF alternatives to consider. With harsh chemicals that we would rather avoid, it’s important to find a sunscreen that doesn’t have a ton of additives and uses non-nano zinc

 

On top of wearing sunscreen this summer, here are five foods that can help support your skin against those beaming rays while nourishing your body from previous sun damage. 

 

 

Rich with lycopene (which is known to protect cells from damage), watermelon can help to protect your skin from light and any environmental pollutants. You can cut it open and bring it as a healthy snack at the beach, or try juicing it with a bit of mint – it’s delicious. 

 

 

Pomegranates are known as the oldest UV protectors out there. Those little seeds are *extremely* high in a natural antioxidant called ellagic acid, which works as a skin protectant. Pomegranate seeds are amazing in salads, added to your morning breakfast or just to snack on by themselves!

 

 

Ever wonder why carrots are orange? It’s because of beta carotene, another amazing antioxidant that has natural skin protectant properties. It has been shown to help prevent sunburn! During the summer, our favorite snack is cutting carrots into strips and dipping them in our favorite hummus! We always stock up for trips to the beach. 

 

 

A high source of vitamin E, almonds help to fight off free radicals which are a major contributor to aging and protect your skin from UV rays. Our favorite way to eat almonds is just on their own or dipped in honey and cinnamon, yum!
