Sun Protection from the Inside Out
By Christine Cheng, R.Ph.
Q: My job requires that I work outdoors and I’m concerned about the long-term effects on my skin of being in the sun all day (when it’s sunny!). Other than covering up and using sunscreen, is there anything else I can do?
A: Having a job that takes one outdoors may be enviable on a sunny afternoon, but without a doubt, one can get too much of a good thing! Other than the precautions you are already taking, make sure you are eating a COLOURFUL DIET as this will provide your body with the antioxidants it normally requires to protect itself against UV damage. In addition, there is a new supplement on the Canadian market that could help from the inside out. UV PROTECT from Innovite is a patented blend of rosemary and grapefruit extracts that is proven to improve the skin’s protective response against UV radiation from the sun as well as decrease wrinkle depth and improve skin elasticity. At just one capsule a day, its benefits can be seen as quickly as after 15 days.
