I cannot emphasize enough how much our skin immunity and health relates to our skin being exposed to sunlight to in order to absorb vitamin D (yes the same type of vitamin that’s important for our bones in calcium absorption and overall health). The sun makes us feel good, and the best way to get our vitamin D’s is through direct sunlight moderately. Always remember to put on sun protection especially if you need to be out between the time of 10am and 2pm.
Last summer I reviewed a couple of organic sunscreens(some with essential oils) that were compatible with my super sensitive skin and Eczema. From that review and testing, none had toxic smell and no irritation has ever occurred on my face (the most sensitive part of my body)! I personally loved the smell of natural essential oils.
In my new video below, I reviewed more products for the summer of 2016. This video is basically a list my recommended products for those with sensitive skin. I review 2 types of lip balm, 2 different kinds of sunscreen(one for the face & one for the body) and one insect repellent.
You should find these organic products in your health food stores or drugstores. If worse comes to worse, there is always the online way.
Products Essentials for Sensitive Skin for Summer 2016
Availability of Organic Skin Products
Just to be straight up and honest, not all of us can afford the luxury of all organic products due to its high cost and scarcity. But for the case of organic for sun-screen I recommend it as a good options if the conventional ones don’t cooperate with your skin . It is so worth it to pay a bit extra for this kind of essential protection. Understand for me, I could use pretty much any product on my body as long there is no fragrance and is hypo-allergenic. However, my face will react badly to most products so I have to make sure to look at the ingredients.
Summer Thoughts 2016
One of my secrets in having healthy smooth and not to mention youngish skin is that I have gone through photo-therapy (another alternative to receive sunlight) for 2 years. In my opinion, this is one of the best ways to treat skin problems including eczema and psoriasis. This would be the best route if taking medications or pills is not on your mind. I will discuss this in another article.
Vitamin D during Winter
I always try to make sure to take my vitamins D supplements during wintertime especially when the days are shorter. Now that I am well, and off my phototherapy treatment, I enjoy going out on sunny days with no worries of visible scars, alligator skin and most importantly I come out with ALOT of confidence in summer dresses, tanks, and shorts.
