Can anyone suggest a non toxic one along with after sun?
I know that our bodies with the right nutrition will look after themselves and we should have no worries but for us unlucky Brits we rarely get the chance for great weather and sunbathing so as soon as we get exposed for more than a couple of hours we tend to go nice and red!
And with a Summer holiday planned abroad I am getting a little concerned because after one day's hot weather here my partner and I are both like lobsters!
Any help would be very much appreciated!
I used it in Thailand this summer:
it's very good and almost all natural
They ship to Ireland and it's only $6 for orders under $40.
I will look into this product. I really appreciate the link!
How long have you been into 80 10 10 lifestyle?? as more fruit you eat (and as longer) as better you tolerate the sunburns.
Short time of about 3-4 months with a little cheating still going on but I would say about 85-90% of our diet being 80 10 10.
Yes I think I agree with you as today we are feeling much better with no peeling! Yippie!
BADGER! It's great and very little ingredients, all natural. You can find it at Whole Foods, Sprouts, other stores I'm sure.
I concur. Badger is the only non-nano sunblock that I know of. Zinc oxide is the active ingredient, and it's a naturally occurring mineral. All the rest of the ingredients are oils.
Colette is very sensitive, I am lucker that I am darker so I don't suffer as much!
We will check out the Jason brand.
What's wrong with a loose shirt and straw hat to build to tan up slowly? Applying ANYTHING to the skin will upset the natural balance of healthy bacteria, oils, the processing of vit-D etc etc etc. Let clothing be your 'sun block', don't clog your pores!
You can expose the skin for the 30 minute daily requirement, then just wear lightly colored loose cotton clothing. Think wispy clothing that blows in the wind and allows cooling and evaporation.
I am not sure if a beach trip is planned, but sun bathing on a beach during peak sun hours may not be a healthy option. Our primate cousins live among the shaded trees. Also, in the middle east, where many people work outside, and or live in desert regions, fully cover their bodies, both men and women.
Eat healthy, drink plenty of water, and cover your body with light cotton clothing. If out during peak sun hours, wear long sleeves, pants, and a hat. Stay in shaded areas as much as possible.
I always burned terribly with the least sun. In the last couple months I've taken advice to be in my birthday suit especially exposing ALL sensitive areas to the sun. It has been working for the most part. The one day that I did burn, I was trying coconut oil. I seem to maybe have problems with coconut on my skin. I seem ok now from that burn, and am actually taking loads of direct sun midday.
I have burnt terribly with commercial sunscreen no matter how little sun exposure or time of day wearing a bathing suit. I used to use Aubrey and Nature's Gate, they worked best against sun for me.
