Sorry, pardon WHAT??? Yes, I did say eat your SPF just not the bottle of sunscreen that’s sitting on the bathroom shelf. Let me explain…..
Certain anti-inflammatory foods, high in antioxidants work as a natural SPF. UV exposure is the biggest cause of skin ageing, not to mention skin cancer. Using a daily SPF is a wise choice but why not take it a step further by eating foods that bolster skin’s natural defense against the sun.

HOW DOES IS WORK?
Unprocessed plant foods, rich in antioxidants reduce oxidation caused by sun exposure that causes DNA damage which ages the skin. By eating a rainbow diet which includes a variety of different coloured, unprocessed fruits and vegetables (oily fish is also good) we increase our skin’s ability to naturally protect itself from the sun.
