Tanning Tips: What to Do Before and After Sun Exposure

When talking about tanning, be it through tanning beds, oral cosmetics, or sunbathing, a few recommendations to protect your skin from the adverse effects of these methods are never superfluous.

Once summer slowly starts to sneak in, we resort to various methods to turn our pale white skin into a good olive-like complexion, perfect to show off through the thin and revealing summer outfits.

The classical tanning method by sun exposure involves the use of efficient sun protectors, with SPF – SPF (Sun Protection Formula) filters. These protectors are available in many formats, such as lotions, oils or creams. Once applied, it creates an invisible barrier between the UV rays and the skin. However, there is a downside: the bigger the amount of sunscreen we use and the higher its protection factor, the less intense and durable the acquired tan is. The advantage is that this type of tanning is less harmful to our skin.

What to do before you expose to sun

Specialists advise that, before going to the beach, a thorough cleaning of your skin is absolutely necessary. Take care not to leave traces of lotion or perfume on the skin, as the areas that are not cleaned properly become more exposed to burns.

Scrub exfoliation, with a special lotion, is also highly advisable, provided that it is not very aggressive. Small scratches can turn into real burns during sun exposure.

Do not forget to apply a generous amount of SPF sunscreen every time you leave the house, taking care not to leave aside those parts of the body that will come in direct contact with the sun. If you are prone to allergies, make sure to use a hypoallergenic product.

Keep at least two days of rest between two intensive tanning sessions. You should also keep in mind to protect your lips with a balm with SPF and wear a hat on sunny. Just like your skin, your eyes can also suffer from the harmful effects of sun exposure, even if they are not open or directly exposed to UV rays. So make sure to protect them as well, using quality sunglasses.  In addition, when you go to the pool, you must use waterproof products.

In order for the skin to slowly accommodate to sun exposure, experts advise that you start your tanning process with no more than 10 or 15 minutes sessions. Make sure the SPF value of your sunscreen is at least 15. Before starting to apply the lotion with SFP on the whole body, check it on a small skin area to make sure that you are not allergic to the substances found in its composition.

 

If you follow a medical treatment for acne, you should consult your doctor before exposing yourself to the sun too. Some active ingredients in acne treatments decrease the skin’s resistance to sun. Also, do not forget to ask your doctor or tanning pills, those supplements that are tan to catch more intense as they may contain substances that generates side effects in combination with other treatments that follow.

What to do after tanning

Hydration is an essential factor, and even more after tanning.  It is advisable to apply a moisturizing solution, based on aloe vera. Aloe Vera is a plant that not only moisturizes, but which is also known for its soothing effects. If tanned skin is not sufficiently hydrated, the colour is uneven and the tan begins to peel.

Moreover, since hydration is extremely important, it is better to have it done at all over the body. Do not forget the rule of the two litres of fluid per day, especially since during the warm season water is lost from the body more easily.

Do not forget about the lotions for tan maintenance. These lotions can be applied even if the tanning process is not over yet. These products usually contain panthenol, soothing aloe vera, and vitamin E, a vitamin which gives flexibility to your skin and helps tanning set better. A perfect tan implies a good preparation and an even better maintenance!
