A beautiful, even and also long-lasting tan is a must-have item on the list of what we want to get out of the vacation we have been waiting for. A proper tan will help improve your immune system and health, as well as give you a rested look and beauty! But how beautiful is it to tan?
It is necessary
sunscreen or lotion, sunscreen lipstick
Yes, yes, you have heard this more than once … Do not dismiss this one either! You should not run to the beach, embarrassed by your white skin color and strive to "catch up" with already sunburned vacationers, ignoring the means of protection. After all, the effect will be exactly the opposite - instead of an even and attractive shade, you will get red burns, and then peeling skin. Not to mention the fact that you run the risk of earning neoplasms, since solar radiation can provoke mutations, and as a result, malignant formations. Sunburn is a protective reaction of the skin to radiation, therefore it is worth "accustoming" it gradually, and it is in the first days of rest that it needs strong protection: the minimum factor of the cream you use is 25-30 SPF. Especially if you have fair skin.
By the way, about the texture of your product. If you know in advance that you intend to swim a lot, and, moreover, are a little lazy or forgetful, give preference to oil-based products - of course, you will still have to update it regularly, but such lotions last a little longer than regular creams. Currently, you can find oils with fairly high factors, up to 40.
The skin of the lips is very thin and vulnerable. But it is about her that they often do not remember, collecting a cosmetic bag for the trip. So don't forget your special sunscreen lipstick! It will prevent the appearance of stains and save you from dryness.
Did you know that certain foods can help neutralize the negative effects of the sun? This is true! Therefore, before going to the beach, you can drink a glass of freshly squeezed carrot juice, rich in antioxidants and vitamins A and E, as well as drink a cup of real cocoa saturated with folic acid, which will increase the body's defenses. Carrots, by the way, will also help the production of melanin, a substance that provides the skin with a beautiful shade after exposure to the sun.
The best time to go to the beach is after four o'clock in the afternoon. The sun is no longer as aggressive and the air is still warm. Some pluses! The morning sun is as soft as the evening sun. And during the hottest time, it is better to stay in the shade while sipping refreshments.
And the last thing - stop by the solarium before your trip, literally for 5-7 minutes. You may not get a tan, but your skin will receive a "signal" and become more prepared against the effects of the sun. Have a beautiful tan!
