The one drink that has sun protection.
Meet The Drink from UVO. Formulated by a Board Certified Dermatolgist, UVO was created to provide people a healthy way to help protect and repair the skin. According to UVO and “[a]fter years of research, users everywhere can take comfort that UVO contains ingredients which have been scientifically proven to benefit the skin and provide many health benefits above and beyond healthy skin.”
The Drink has 3 primary functions:
- It provides approximately 3-5 hours of supplemental sun protection (aside from recommended sunscreen use and proactive UV protection).
- After some needed (and limited) sun exposure, it helps accelerate recovery and soothe the skin.
- With daily use, it helps repair damaged skin and provides antiaging and beauty benefits.
UVO recommends to “[d]rink 30 minutes before sun exposure for 3-5 hours of supplemental sun protection. Drink immediately after over-exposure to the sun to help accelerate recovery and soothe the skin. Drink daily to help repair long-term sun damage and for beautification.” They also stress that The Drink “[s]hould not be used as the only source of sun protection.”
It contains ingredients that are proven to work from the inside out. These include 30+ vitamins, phytonutrients, and of course antioxidants to help protect, repair and beautify your skin from the inside out. The Drink protects the skin by providing nutrients that’s naturally found in plants and vegetables to absorb UV rays, like melanin. It also helps protect potential DNA damage while boosting the body’s natural DNA repair proteins. It helps repair collagen damage caused by UV rays. Lastly, it helps alleviate inflammation that results in a sunburn. 🙂
So I took a personal challenge to drink a bottle of The Drink every day for 30 days. It was a challenge indeed for me, as I had difficulty with its taste. It claims to be an Orange Peach that not artificial flavor. To be honest, it does taste artificial to me, and it really didn’t enjoy it. But I stuck to my guns to write this review. It’s really difficult to tell how The Drink worked for my skin against the sun’s UV rays. But I’ll take, any additional sun protection is a plus in my books. Would I recommend this to others? I say y’all gotta do your research and figure out if this dietary supplement is right for y’all. 🙂 I wish, though, that I had done this in the summer summer when I knew I’d be out under the sun more. Cause I do have an increased tendency to burn. So I would have liked to compare how fast a sunburn develops, if it even develops at all. 🙂
