Sunbathe rather than burn!

In summer, we like being transformed into lizards, spending hours under the sun.

Some sunbathe, yes, because it allows us to synthesize vitamin D!
But be careful not to get too much of it.

Excess sun, we know it, is not good for our skin. Besides the risk of cancer to which it exposes us, it is also responsible for premature ageing of our cells.

It is thus important to well prepare your skin to sun exposure but also to neutralize the free radicals generated by the UV.

Play the card beta-carotene; this vitamin is widely found in fruits and vegetables of orange colour. Beta-carotene stimulates and accelerates the skin's pigmentation. It is a natural sun protection but it does not replace suncreams!
