Internal And External Sun Protection
By Heather Long |
"Bioboosting" is a natural method of internally and externally protecting skin from the sun. When using this technique, you are stimulating the skin's natural immunity, therefore improving sun detoxification.
Ways to use this form of protection include using and/or consuming ingredients such as algae, plankton, vitamin C, vitamin A and zinc, as well as drinking green tea with fruit peels. (It's the peels that contain the most antioxidants.)
Bioboosting alone isn't as effective as using sunblock, so your best bet is to combine methods. Look for topical products with zinc oxide. Not only is it effective, but it's also non-toxic and healing to the skin whether you go into the sun or not.
