Vitamin D: catching some sun on a nice summer’s day…
My immune system and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship. Mainly, it hates me. Most days we are not on speaking terms. Because of this, I have a vitamin D deficiency. I take supplements (like, a LOT) but there’s no cure than good, old-fashioned sunshine, am I right?
Only, I’m also pale. Like, vampire pale. Like, just a shade darker than albino pale. So, while I need vitamin D, I can only handle the sun in small doses.
I’m not even kidding on this. I wear INFANT sunscreen – which is supposed to last 80 minutes before reapplication is necessary. Yeah, no. Try 30, if I’m lucky.
Makes going to the beach a fun time. 😉
Anyone else have this problem? Has anyone else considered one of those burkinis? Because legit, I have. What do you do to combat the harsh sun rays? Inquiring minds want to know!
