Avoiding Sunburn

Those who know me even vaguely, know that I spend every other weekend in baseball parks all over the southeast.

Year one, I got cooked.  Then I started my holistic lifestyle.  This year, while folks sat under stadium tents getting cooked, I sat behind homeplate in full sun all day, 2 days in a row.  I wouldn't consider putting sunscreen on my body at this point, but I didn't get anything more than a pink that turned into soft tan over night.  This, and I have a red-head for a daddy!

Sunburn is oxidation just under the skin.  The sun heats these free-radicals and that's what burns you.

Eat good, include lots of fruits and superfoods that are high anti-oxidents.  How can you tell which are which?   "They" use to promote vitamins C, E, A as the antioxident vitamins.  WRONG ANSWER.  It's the phytochemicals that give foods their dark rich color.  Include dark berries like blackberries, blueberries, goji berries ... have a teaspoon of cacao in a green smoothie on occassion.  Even tomatoes have antioxidents, and have a gander at the color or some of those heirloom tomatoes in the store, so red they're burgandy!!!
