Many people think that tanned skin is beautiful. However, in an effort to make it such, it is important not to overdo it in sunbathing. If you want a beautiful and even tan, prepare your skin in advance and use caution when visiting the beach or summer cottage.
The tan will lie better on smooth skin. To achieve this quality, apply a body scrub before sunbathing. It is better to use it in the evening - on the eve of the first day of sunbathing. The result is a smoother and more beautiful tan.
Apply sunscreen. The lighter your skin, the more protection you need. It is measured in SPF. When the skin, after a few days of exposure to the sun, has already tanned a little, which means it will receive natural protection, the level of SPF - sun protection factor can be reduced.
You should only sunbathe at certain times. The most suitable time for tanning is from 9 to 11 am and from 4 pm to 7 pm. You will have to spend more time on the beach for the skin to acquire a chocolate hue than at lunchtime. But on the other hand, such a tan is safe for the skin.
Don't spend more than two hours in the sun every day. If your skin is very light, start tanning gradually - from 5-7 minutes a day. Expose your body gradually to avoid possible allergic reactions. This is especially true if you are sensitive to sun exposure.
Remember to apply after-sun products. They are designed to cool the skin and moisturize it. If the skin is damaged by excessive exposure to the sun, and you experience discomfort, after-sun products will help to cope with this problem.
