Have We Become Sun Phobic?

Every year, the media blasts the dangers of sunbathing and over exposure to the sun. Is it any wonder that some of us have become sun phobic? As with any other part of our lives, creating the right balance is the key.

Scientists have found that people with low levels of Vitamin D intake or who avoid sunlight are biologically five years older than those with higher levels of the vitamin. Around 90% of the body’s absorption of vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight, the remainder from foods such as fish, eggs and breakfast cereals.

It only takes a short time, approximately 10 minutes without protection, in the sun to provide the body with sufficient vitamin D. I would suggest to get that 10 minutes of sun on the body as opposed to your face and to always use protection on the face.

What is the right balance? How do you control the effects of the sun to ensure that you don’t overdo your exposure? The answer is to take care to prevent sun damaged skin by using sunscreen daily with an SPF of 15 or higher. A diet of foods rich in vitamin D or supplements will also help in keeping the tell tale signs of aging at bay.

Speak with Joyce Marie, your professional licensed skin therapist about SPF moisturizers that can be worn comfortably under make-up, or alone to deliver defense against skin aging UV light.

Better yet, ask Joyce Marie about our Daylight Defense Product Line, specifically designed to protect your skin against harmful UV light while moisturizing and keeping your skin young.
