FSHN- How do you interact with the sun -Do you use sunscreen?
MD- since a young boy my exposure to the sun was built for resistance with time and not sudden overexposure. My mother would bring us into the strong Black Sea Sun at the beginning of summer season in June starting with 5 minutes the first day and then adding another five minutes to each day till we reached 30 minutes of exposure to the sun in one day. After that we were ready to play outside as much as we wanted, never using any sunscreen or other chemicals on our skin. By the end of two months in the sun we made point to stay less outside when the sun reach is strongest rays in the August month.
FSHN- When is the sun strongest to damage us?
Strangely enough that month of August is the month when most people plan their vacation and the Sun is strongest and most damaging to our skin. We have watched as children living by the sea the coming summer visitors to expose their skin to the sun all day long for 10day vacation and getting burned to crisp by the ends of their vacation. This is the perfect way to create damage.
FSHN- is too late to rebuild skin after 30?
The good news is that our skin is repaired and rebuild every night as we sleep from the nutrients we have provided our body with, during the day or in our nightly skin care regiment. So it is never too late to change habits and repair our skin with some help from inside and outside. The goal is to have resilient skin and to build this resilience with natural intelligence from natural plants in combination of our own smart behaviors that give the skin time to adapt to the environment of each season. We and our actions and decisions play major role in the skin we have.
