The days are getting longer and warmer and you’re so lily white you’re practically transparent! Oh the horror! Get out into the sun early this year and get that gorgeous bronze tan you’ve always wanted. Here’s how to do it as safely as possible.
To obtain a healthy summer glow this season you should exfoliate your skin before sun exposure in order to remove the dead skin cells. This will allow for fresh skin to appear and will ensure that you get a nice, even tan. Start off slow and gradually build up the length of time you spend in the sun so that you don’t burn and are able to hold on to that tan.
It is of vital importance that you wear sunscreen at all times when tanning. It is a myth that wearing sunscreen will stop you from being able to tan. Sunscreen will simply ensure that you protect your skin from harmful UV rays and avoid burning. Make sure that you buy a waterproof sunblock when swimming and keep in mind that you need to be extra careful around water as it attracts and reflects sunlight. Always reapply sunscreen just to be safe.
Make sure to turn your body regularly like a rotisserie chicken in order to get an even tan and avoid tan lines.
When tanning it’s important to avoid peak hours and limit the amount of sun exposure your skin gets on a daily basis. Half an hour under the sun a day will allow your body to produce enough melanin to assist you the next time you tan.
Give your skin time to repair itself after a day out in the sun and remember to always wear a hat and sunglasses to avoid burning your face and scalp. To keep your skin hydrated and maintain your bronze be sure to moisturize your skin with an aloe-based lotion.
