SUN

This summer days in Israel enjoyed lots of sunshine. It was so nice to get some sun on my skin.I don’t wear sunscreen, I prefer to allow the sun and my skin work things out on their own.

But truthfully, sunscreen isn’t actually the life-saver we think it is. Alongside them containing a myriad of chemicals and almost entirely blocking vitamin D synthesis, most sunscreens only protect against UVB rays, not UVA (the kind that cause cancer).

It isn’t so much the sun itself that is the victim, but rather what our body may lack. Our best *protection* includes a diet rich in many good things: good quality, saturated fats; antioxidants, lycopene, to name a few. Perhaps a few layers, some shade, or a natural homemade sunscreen if you’re feeling playful 🙂 Either way, I see the sun as a life-giver, our mother here on earth, a healer. I realized how much we need that connection and bonding with nature and the natural world around us. There’s nothing like it.

今年夏天我在以色尽情享受阳光。

我崇尚阳光,喜欢让肌肤自由呼吸,拒绝使用任何防晒产品。

防晒产品由大量化学成分合成,它并非如我们所想象的那么“功不可破”。许多防晒产品在阻挡了户外紫外线UVB侵害的同时,也彻底妨碍了我们肌体主动合成维生素D的能力。然而,防晒产品对能引发癌症等疾病的长波紫外线UVA,却没有任何招架之力。

阳光不会导致伤害,肌体的自身缺陷才是真正元凶。抵御此类伤害的最佳方法:首先,关键在于对食品营养成分的选择;例如,选择优质的、富含饱和脂肪酸,抗氧化剂和番茄红素等的食品。其次,选用一些遮阳用品。另外,如果有兴趣的话,不妨试着用一些自制的防晒护肤品。总之,阳光给大地母亲带来生命,带来健康。我相信,只有我们为大自然付出的越多,大自然才会回馈我们越多!
