About sunnysleevez

I'm a freckly red head, originally from London now living in LA with 2 pale children. Frankly with our coloring we have no business being such an outdoorsy family and living in southern California. I grew up in a time when factor 8 sun milk was considered the best protection available to combat the hot rays of a holiday in southern Spain, that lead to 3rd degree burns and the rest of the vacation spent in the shade of our apartment. As a family we love to be outside, going to the beach, camping, swimming & hiking. We can't completely avoid the sun (nor should we) but taking sensible measures to avoid unnecessary UV damage is a priority. How do we do that? By staying in the shade in the middle of the day, wearing sun protective clothing (that's why I created Sunny Sleevez), a broad brimmed hat, UV rated sunglasses, using chemical-free broad spectrum sun screen on exposed areas & eating a healthy diet with as few chemicals as possible & lots of antioxidants.

  1. I love Brussels sprouts – can’t stand apples though, and cranbberies are awfully overpriced in Russia… Any substitutes for the two? 😉

  2. Love apples, Brussel sprouts …no . great post.

    Great post! I have to be honest, whenever I think of skin care, the only thing I think about is using sun screen, I’ve never thought to look at my diet. Great stuff!

    If people feel they can’t eat all this every day, a juicer is a great addition. Love ours, and make carrot, spinach, and apple juice at least three times a week, maybe more.

  5. Oranges, kiwis and blueberries have great antioxidants and nutrients for your body!
