Since I was two years old my mother used to take me
to the beautiful, sandy beach we had close to our home.
I used to play in the cool blue water, swim and sit in the
warm, soft sand. What a bliss that was!
Still until today, the sea and the sun are the best things
for me — and I am always anxious to be by them.
There is nothing that can replace a wonderful, warm
and sunny summer’s day!
What an uplifting feeling!
Sunbathing — one of life’s great pleasures!
Apart from its health benefits, developing this beautiful
tan is one of the most sexy sensations!
Summer is approaching, and we all look forward to
spending more time outside.
We want to enjoy all its benefits.
At the same time we must protect our skin from
the sun’s harmful radiation.
Obviously we have to use a sunscreen SPF 50 on our faces
and SPF 30 on our bodies to guard against ageing and burning.
But there are a number of foods we can be eating, which
can protect our skin and boost our defences against various
These foods with their active ingredients can also keep our
skin looking fresher, radiant and nourished from within.
