Superfoods That Can Help Protect You from the Sun

Superfoods That Can Help Protect You from the Sun

May 23rd 2022

It's beginning to feel a lot like summer! Time to pack away the winter coats and warm up thanks to clear skies and sunshine. During this National Sun Safety week - we encourage you to take care of your most vital organ - your skin! Using reef safe sunblock and covering up is a great start... but did you know that consuming superfoods regularly can also help keep your skin protected when the temperatures rise?

Pro Tip: The hotter the weather, the better the superfoods! Bowls, smoothies, popsicles, and zero-proof cocktails? We're here for all of it.

Camu Camu

Works so nice, you've got to say it twice! This powerhouse superberry is loaded with Vitamin C, an essential antioxidant to support glowing, healthy skin. Thinking about popping sugar coated gummies? Think again. Just one teaspoon of Organic Camu Camu Powder is over 365% of the daily recommendation.

Simple Nutrition Green Blend

So simple. So delicious. So effective! We all know that leafy greens are a good way to keep our inner eco-system working optimally, but did you know that they are also a major player in skin health? Packed with beta-carotene, an important nutrient for maintaining skin health, leafy greens are also a good source of potassium, which is effective at maintaining the skin's pH balance and preventing dryness.

Hemp Seeds

We might be biased here (since we sprinkle hemp seeds on just about everything), but this nutty little super-seed is hands down our favorite multi-tasker. Rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids, Organic Hemp Seeds can help maintain your skin’s integrity while gently dealing with the effects of spending a little too much time in the sun. Plus, like we said, take them anywhere and sprinkle on everything... EVERY. THING.

Matcha Powder

Crowned our trendiest superfood, Organic Matcha Powder has earned the top spot in popularity for its versatility, deliciousness, and of course being super-duper healthy. Green Tea has been used for centuries in Asia for its powerful antioxidants, including EGCG, a flavinol that has been studied for it's protection against sun exposure.
