Marshmallow Root for Healthier, Younger-Looking Skin. Naturally Protect Your Skin from the Sun

The start of summer is officially here, and it’s time to start thinking about how we will protect ourselves from the sun.  A few years ago I wrote a post on sunscreen and the sunscreens I use. I still use the same brands today, and both are highly regarded in the medical community.

There is no question that the sun is a big culprit for aging and discoloring the skin, and there are no substitutes for a quality sunscreen, wide-brim hat and sunglasses. However, I also recently discovered Marshmallow Root Oil, or A. officinalis, which you might consider adding to your sun-protection routine. Studies show that Marshmallow Root extract significantly reduces UVA-induced DNA damage in the skin.  UVA rays from the sun cause wrinkles and long-term skin effects, such as discolorations, and they can also lead to skin cancers ( although most skin cancers, as well as sunburns, are linked to UVB rays.)

When do I use it? I apply Marshmallow Root Oil extract after an afternoon bath; in the morning or before I go to bed at night. I’m diligent about sun-protection, but if I DO get too much sun, I apply this extract. If you tan at tanning salons ( Not a fan), you are mostly exposing yourself to UVA rays. If you don’t want to give up tanning, consider applying Marshmallow Root Oil extract after your tanning-bed session to minimize long-term deleterious effects.
