Should You be Drinking Your Sunscreen?
By Elise Minton Tabin |
Could the future of sun protection be found in a drink as opposed to a lotion or cream? Our sources say drinkable sunscreen may change the way we all protect our skin in the future. Enter: Osmosis Harmonized Water UV Neutralizer, a new breed of sun protection that may change just about everything you know when it comes to preventing sun damage.
Up until now, the only effective way of protecting skin from the sun was with topical sunscreen. But now, this chemical-free, nontoxic formula makes use of purified water and vibrational waves, which the company says, “isolate out the precise frequencies needed to protect you from UV rays.” In other words, the water contains special frequencies that actually cancel out UVA and UVB rays (like typical sunscreen does) just like how noise-cancelling headphones work.
Unlike traditional sunscreens that are applied directly to skin, rubbed in and then reapplied every few hours, the distilled water and vibrational-frequency blend is designed to be taken one hour before going out in the sun. Just drink between two and three milliliters of the Osmosis water with two ounces of regular water every four hours while outside. So does it work? The first clinical trials conducted by the brand show promising results. But to be extra safe, we recommend doubling up with your favorite topical sunscreen if you're going to be outside for any length of time. $30, osmosisskincare.com
