Increase Your Natural SPF with Mother Nature
Did you know that new studies suggest that increasing foods that are high in antioxidants will naturally increase your own sun protection factor? Foods that are vibrant in colour contain an antioxidant called 'carotenoids' which help the plant to protect itself against intense and damaging rays from the sun. Filling your diet with these foods means your body can take these benefits in and put them to work for you.
Add tomatoes, green tea, dark leafy greens, carrots and yams to your diet for a start. Even dark chocolate can help boost your skins natural protective abilities.
