Follow on Bloglovin Can drinking Harmonized water really protect us from those nasty UVA and UVB rays? This is a new concept, drinking water for sun protection instead of slathering on our greasy sunscreens! Drink a small amount of Osmosis UV Harmonized water before sun exposure and you will be protected from the sun. Interesting ....... Understandably this concept is a hard one to grab and one you may need to read a few times, but the science is there. It is now just a matter of believing the science.     My clients swear by this stuff, you take 2ml 1 hour before you are exposed to the sun and another 2ml every 3-4 hours as long as you are exposed. If you are on any medication that makes you sun sensitive or are about to embark on a heavy outdoor exercise session, then you will need to apply an alternate sun protection such as the Osmosis Shade 30-40 minutes after sun exposure has commenced.         So now, lets get into how this works ... the simplified way! Osmosis UV Protection Harmonized H20: The easiest way I can explain this is, imagine you are drinking little Captain America's within in your water. Once all the Captain America's have swum through your body to your skin, they then put up their shields to counteract the suns waves that come in contact with your body. Thereby neutralizing UV radiation! Your Osmosis UV Harmonized Water:
  • neutralizes UV radiation protecting your whole body. Radiation that affects our skin comes in the form of UVA and UVB rays.
  • These waves have a certain frequency that determines the length of the wave (wavelength). eg: UVA wavelength is 400-320 nm
  • UV Protection Harmonized H20 has frequencies that are held in its water molecule that protect us from UV energy waves. Once the water is consumed, it will take an hour (on an empty stomach) to reach the skin before that protection can occur. The UV Protection waves are then able to counteract the suns UV waves that come in contact with our body thereby neutralizing any UV radiation. This product is a great alternative to waterproof chemical sunscreens providing up to an SPF 30 for 3 hours
UVA and UVB - the lowdown
  • UVA has the longest wavelength out of the 2 with 320-400nm
  • UVB has a shorter wavelength of 290-320nm
  • UVA rays account for up to 95 percent of the UV radiation reaching the Earth's surface. Although they are less intense than UVB, UVA rays are 30 to 50 times more prevalent. They are present with relatively equal intensity during all daylight hours throughout the year, and can penetrate clouds and glass. This is why us Aestheticians encourage sunscreen use 365 days of the year on the face especially.
