My family all has fair skin and skin cancer has touched quite a few of my family members. My parents have both had skin cancer but very treatable ones, and my little brother 6 years my junior just had a melanoma removed. So sun protection is a always on the forefront of my mind. I spend a lot of time outdoors and after my youth of tanning beds and hours baking in the sun I know its not will I get skin cancer probably when it will happen. I can’t erase the past but I can protect my skin going forward.
I am always looking for new sun protection products and I am really intrigued my the drinkable sun protection. I have been reading up on it and there are as many skeptics as believers. What are your thoughts can a drinkable sunscreen really work?
Drinkable Option: Osmosis Harmonized Water UV Neutralizer
Described at the world’s 1st drinkable sunscreen, this dietary supplement is available in two formulas (Tan Enhancing and No Tan Enhancing).
Physician endorsed, no chemicals, non-toxic, this is simply purified water imprinted with unique, vibrational waves which isolate out the precise frequencies needed to protect you from UV rays. The frequencies that have been imprinted on water will vibrate on your skin in such a way as to cancel approximately 97% of the UVA and UVB rays (similar to broad spectrum SPF 30 products). This results in 3 hours of coverage that can be repeated for extended stays in the sun. These two different UV Waters allow for increased sun exposure (30x more than normal), protect your eyes, do not wash off when swimming and can increase your tanning response.
