The summer is upon us. We have already entered the best phase of pool parties, evening barbeques, slow and relaxing tea times, and lounging out on the beach side. It is a popular trend to go tanning every summer and this year is no different. If you are planning to go tan this summer, we have compiled a couple of tips for you to get a safe tan.
Tip #1: Don’t be stingy with sunscreen.
This is by far the most important tip you should remember any time you go tanning under the sun. It doesn’t matter what tone your skin is or how easily you get burns, sunscreen is going to be your new best friend. It is recommended that a sunscreen with SPF 50 is good enough for your tanning session. Lather up on sunscreen to protect yourself from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
Tip #2: Keep hydrating yourself during your session under the sun.
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of keeping yourself hydrated. Drink lots of water to avoid dehydration and severe headaches later. Prioritizing hydration will reap long term benefits as well. Your skin will stay hydrated instead of drying out because of continued exposure to the sunlight.
Tip #3: Exfoliate before applying sunscreen and change angles.
Exfoliate before you apply sunscreen as it will remove all the dead skin cells and open up your skin pores. The sunscreen will then easily settle into the clean pores and protect your skin more effectively against harmful UV rays. It will also help you tan evenly.
Don’t sit or lay in one position for too long. Change your positions often so each side gets an equal and healthy amount of sunlight. Staying in one pose is a disaster recipe for bad skin burns and uneven tan lines.
