Tipsy Tuesday (#221)

Summer is here and the sun is shining...

Tip #221

use this tip to prevent sun damage from the inside out.

Aside from daily use of a broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen, boost your UV protection by taking an antioxidant supplement such as Heliocare or SunPill. Research shows that the fern extract in these pills significantly reduces UVA-related DNA damage that leads to wrinkling and brown spots. For best results, pop one each day starting a week before you plan on fun in the sun. "This allows the antioxidants to build up in your system for maximum protection," says Leslie Baumann, MD, director of the University of Miami Cosmetic Medicine and Research Institute.Read more here.

Since I seem to have trouble remembering to put on sunscreen, maybe I should look into something like this instead... oy!

I'm going to have to read a little more about this. I'm pretty diligent about wearing sun screen every day, especially on my face, but somehow I still end up getting those pesky brown spots in the summer. That may not be a problem living here, though...we'll see! Still going to check out these pills and see if there's any weird side effects!
