How? Start now, with the first sunny days, by exposing your well nurtured skin for a few minutes a day without sunscreen, increasing the amount of time as we get deeper into Spring time. We've had a taste of Spring a couple of days ago where you can feel the warmth of the sun. It is during days like this that you build up your natural protection wisely. Meaning, as your skin is white (no melanin, no protection), it will burn easily and you want to avoid that at any cost. So start with a few minutes of sun exposure without sunscreen, enjoy and take in the light and energy of the Sun. Depending on your skin type, you could start to feel a burning sensation already after 3 to 4 minutes. That's your cue, that's when you need to put on clothes to protect, a sunhat, or a mineral sunscreen. For the more Mediterranean skin types, you might feel very comfortable with 20 minutes of Sun exposure (you have more melanocytes by birth, who produce the melanin which gives you your darker skin color and therefor protection). Note: this is to build up your natural sun protection, the genius system of the nature of our body. All of this with the aim of not getting burned, to understand and know your skin, so that you can benefit from the life giving force of the Sun. As we get deeper into Spring time, I will offer more advice on building up moderately.
I will guide you true each month, adding important stuff so that you feel confident in relation to the sun, and that you may enjoy a healthy doses of sunshine on your skin.
The most important thing for you to be aware of for now, is allowing your skin to gradually increase the melanin production without getting burned, thickening your skin, building up that natural protection. It is amazing how our body is created to keep us alive and well. By understanding how we can support our system is key though.
