I am the queen of shade so... the first pic fits. Lol
These are pics from the annual Memorial Day Weekend trip to Matthew's dad's farm. 🙂

I risked life and limb letting Julian drive me around on a 4 wheeler shortly after our pic together was taken- a bit scary but fun.

Building on the whole body positivity/confidence thing, yesterday I put this outfit on to go out in. But it turned out I was a bit ambitious because it actually wasn’t as sunny and warm as I thought it was so I had to change into jeans, but the thought was there 😂 Even just wearing jeans with this vest top was a huge step for me and I felt great!

While everyone else is excited about all of the sun over the weekend, I will be hiding away, covered in layers of clothes and my factor 50+. My #lupus makes me incredibly #photosensitive, and it's made worse by the #cellcept I take. My #photosensitivity will result is rashes getting worse, awful nausea, migraines and my joints swelling.

A lot of people don’t know about one of my more #rare #autoimmunediseases called #porphyria. It’s made up of five subsets of #disorders and the one I have only 1 in 50 #thousand actually have it. But it causes #extreme #photosensitivity. Meaning when though I used 60 SPF #sunscreen and reapplied all day, I still #burned badly enough that I #blistered in places and I’m swollen and #raw. It’s an ironic #symptom considering porphyria is a #liver #disease 🤣🤣. But now I’m sitting in #bed saying “it puts the lotion on its skin” as I try to numb and #heal the #damage

happy friday my oil-y friends!
.
i’ve got some personal development in my ears, some sunshine on my face, and peppermint on the back of my neck to keep me cool 😉
.
which reminded me -
.
hopefully you’re all using your fave oils as your “purefume” and have ditched those toxic scented body moisturizers/perfumes/fragrances and are using your oils topically to support your mood and emotional wellness too — BUT! be mindful of the oils that are PHOTOSENSITIVE and cannot be exposed to sun after applying them. (ie; ANY of the citrus oils, bergamot, etc)
.
if there are no photosensitivity concerns with your oil of choice that day, oil up and carry on ☺️
.
have a beautiful days guys!

Rachel's ex racehorse Daring Indian but they call him Dougie as a stable name. 'I have put them on his white socks due to him being photosensitive and buttercup burn. He presents with nasty dermatitis.
They fit well and he's happy with them 💙'

With summer coming we are going to be spending a lot more time outside. Just remember that some oils react to the uv rays of the sun and need to be used with caution before going out in the sun. We all want ourselves and our families to be healthy happy and safe. If you use these photosensitive oils before going out in the sun just use caution and cover up the area of skin that the oil was applied to. We can still use the oils we love and go outside, we just need to be a little more conscious about certain oils. If you want more info on essential oils, send me a message or email me at megan.tyre18@gmail.com. I’d love to help you start your own oily journey and have you as a part of the team! #doterra #essentialoils #essentialliving #oilylife #livenaturally #photosensitivity #doterraessentialoils #lovemyoils #oilyfamily #familylove❤️

Warning ⚠️ Let’s chat a second about “Photosensitivity”! With summer sun upon us and so many of you hitting the pool and the beach you need to keep in mind that certain oils and products will possibly enhance the effects of the sun on your skin.
The main oils to keep in mind are any of the citrus oils: Lemon, Lime, Tangerine, Grapefruit, and Orange.
But remember that any products that have those oils as a part of the blend (like Deep Relief) can also cause issues.
Just be intentional about giving yourself ample time before you go out in the sun if you have topically applied any citrus oils!! Now go have FUN in the SUN!!! 🌞🌞🌞 #sunsafety #oilsafety #photosensitivity #citrusoils #burns #havefuninthesun #youvebeenadvised #dontgetburned #beresponsible

Let’s talk photosensitivity for a sec. What is it? Basically it’s when your skin becomes extra sensitive to the suns rays and can burn very easily. Some medications can cause this and also essential oils.....mostly citrus oils. But don’t forget blends like Peace & Calming which also have citrus. Not saying you can’t use it....just make sure you wait before going out in the sun. #justanurseteachingoils #younglivingessentialoils #photosensitivity

Gearing up for a trip to Disney and searched high and low for UPF tops, that didn’t look like I was about to go play🎾 or ⛳️. #TheStruggleisReal
I’m sharing my beautiful finds that are UPF 50+ and UPF 30+ that’ll protect from UV rays and Dermatologist approved 👍🏼

Citrus oils are the BEST! They smell amazing, they taste amazing and they do amazing things for your body! Now that the sun is shining you just have to be a little careful if you decide to apply to your skin. Young Living Cautions to avoid direct sunlight or UV rays for up to 48 hours. I say don’t even apply to skin right now (I like to play it safe). Add to your water and diffuser and you will get all the benefits! ☀️#oillife #geteducated #naturalliving #healthyliving #playitsafe #summerliving #fruit #photosensitivity #skin

5.21 Lupus Fact of the Day
.
I used to be a sun-worshipper. I would bask in the sun as much as I could, whenever I could. But with lupus, I cover up at all times to avoid a potential flare.
.
#Photosensitivity or abnormal light sensitivity is very complex and is a major symptom of lupus. Beyond skin rashes that can develop, exposure to the sun can cause those living with lupus to experience increased disease activity with symptoms such as joint pains, weakness, fatigue and fever.
.
Two-thirds of people with lupus have increased sensitivity to ultraviolet rays, either from sunlight or from artificial inside light, such as fluorescent light -- or both.
.
I miss the days when enjoying some real vitamin D was not an issue. ✋💜☀️ #imissthesun #lupus #kNOlupus #lupusawareness #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness

The sun is shining brightly. It’s the perfect time for a reminder that sun and essential oils don’t always mix. I’ve added a highlight in my profile on essential oils & sun safety! 😎 #thelavendergiraffe #essentialoils #aromatherapy #sunsafety #photosensitization #photosensitivity

The use of certain medications combined with #UVradiation exposure can result in an abnormal skin reaction known as #photosensitivity.
Over the counter or prescriptive photosensitive drugs include:
▪antibiotics
▪nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs)
▪diuretics
▪retinoids

Discontinuing medication use & staying indoors may not be a practical option, but avoiding the adverse reaction that is caused by certain medications when combined with UV radiation is possible with the following tips:

1.  Seek shade & stay out of direct sunlight between 10am to 4pm
(when the sun is most intense)
2.  Use high-SPF broad spectrum #sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher is advisable for photosensitive individuals)
3.  Wear sun-protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat & UV-blocking #sunglasses

These are great suggestions for everyone but especially for those who use photosensitive medication. Protection from sun damage is a must ☀
It's UV AWARENESS MONTH!
