Anyone else starting to become a sun addict after paleo?
Before I left the US, I was on vitamin D supplements for a deficiency. I never went outside much because I couldn't stand the heat, and where I had lived usually had a lot of overcast. However, I am better able to deal with the heat and Seoul is very sunny (when it's not having a torrential downpour). I am a natural strawberry blonde and would sunburn after fifteen minutes outside, sometimes straight through mid-September, and not tan. Now, I can be out for a few hours without sunburning, and if I do burn, it's not bad and goes away quickly - and I used to get really bad ones as a kid, with blistering and peeling sometimes. However, I am trying to avoid actually burning, and I think I know what my maximum is now. I even tan now and it's expediting the healing of my psoriasis. The problem is that now I really love being out in the sun! In the past, I used to hide from the sun, slather on 55 spf (yeah) sunscreen and only go out when it was overcast if I could help it. I try not to be out in the middle of the day when it's the strongest, but I get urges when I see how sunny it is to sit or walk out in it and soak in the rays. Is there anything normal about it, or am I getting addicted to the endorphin release of being out in the sunshine?
