It isn’t uncommon for most people to hit the beach during the summer months to get a glowing tan, and it’s even more popular in regions of the country that have warm weather throughout the year. However, ultraviolet rays can be damaging to the skin and may cause cancer later down the road.
Supplements, such as Ultimate Reds from Dr. Newton’s Naturals, can provide the body with the antioxidants it needs to repair cells and promote cell growth. In combination with sunscreen, supplements can protect individuals against sun-borne illnesses.
