Summertime is really starting to sizzle with higher temperatures. While families flock to the beach or settle into their poolside lounge chairs, some are finding that an improved solar defense is a tri combination of sunscreen, shark liver oil and salmon oil supplements.
Nutrilys Del Mar in Carlsbad is helping people keep their skin safe this summer by protecting it with its natural and organic marine-based supplements.
The Nutrilys Del Mar team said applying sunscreen every few hours is challenging and many families still return back home or to their hotel room with sunburns. It really becomes a chore reapplying sunscreen throughout the day.
And this challenge becomes more intense for those participating in water sports or sweating. Although keeping up with a broad spectrum sunscreen should be done, at times, it seems like an impossible feat.
While science continues to fine-tune their studies, researchers are discovering that a dietary supplement of fish oil may very well offer a solar defense boost.
Doing whatever someone can to ward off ultra violet rays is extremely important since they can be harmful both in the long term and short term.
For example, sunburns are not only painful but they damage the skin. Inevitably, this spurs premature signs of skin aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and rough skin texture. And in some cases, unprotected exposure to the sun may be the root cause of skin cancer.
Wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon oil, rich with omega 3 fatty acids, may help reduce the risk of sunburns. And lessening the times someone has sunburns will promote healthier skin.
Shark liver oil has a couple ingredients which serve as a great sun protector. The first is its pure and natural source of alkylglycerols, which has been reported by many to maintain a healthy immune system. Some researchers claim it’s an immune booster and has excellent antioxidant capabilities.
There are health care professionals who say that alkylglycerols has a long list of health benefits. And one of them acts as a skin healer in where clients have noticed decreased cases of sunburn when they take it orally or even apply it topically. In other cases, people have applied topical shark liver oil to sunburns and it offered immediate pain relief.
Also in shark liver oil is an extract called squalene, a byproduct of vitamin A. This vitamin is necessary in sustaining a good immune response. Squalene has been used in skin care products for decades. Like alkylglycerols, squalene strengthens the immune system through its antioxidant properties either orally, topically or both.
Reports have also shown squalene to neutralize free radicals while it works its way easily into the skin. This helps protect skin against ultraviolet rays.
Although fish oils can really help ward off ultra violet rays, it’s still extremely important to use sunscreen. These supplements are not a substitute but rather an adjunct therapy in a summer skin care routine.
While summertime serves up fun in the sun it’s important to keep everyone skin safe.
