But if the sun is good for you, how can you take it without risk while ensuring a golden tan?
Just follow 5 simple rules:
1- Never expose yourself to the sun between 11:00 and 16:00: in this time slot the sun is harmful because it is too strong, making any attempt to protect yourself with sunscreen or continuous immersion in water useless. Always prefer early morning or late afternoon.
2- Choosing the right sunscreen: especially at the beginning of our holiday, with skin still pale from the winter, we need to use creams with protection 40 or 50, gradually decreasing as the days go by, when our tan will start appearing.
3- In addition to a good cream, it is important to tan gradually. The first 2-3 days it is advisable not to stay in the sun for more than an hour, taking refuge under an umbrella if necessary: spending hours in the sun right away, going towards good and good sunburns, is very harmful. Let's give our skin time to color.
4- Use substances such as vitamin C and collagen stimulants after exposure. They are used to repair sun damage and help the skin restore its balance without excessively reddening. If you are consistent and can take care of your skin after the sun, you will be rewarded! Instead of getting damaged and reddened, the skin will take on a golden and healthy glow.
5- Eat lots of carrots and use an oil to nourish your skin after exposure! (or put a cream with carrot oil). Carrots and oils such as broccoli, grape and pomegranate oil have a miraculous action on the skin if applied in the evening after the sun. They nourish skin dried out by the sun's rays, give a homogeneous color, stimulate the production of collagen to avoid the appearance of wrinkles and in addition they make your skin take on a golden color.
These good habits apply to everyone regardless of their phototype (i.e. for very light-colored and therefore more sensitive subjects, and for brown-skinned or very dark-skinned people) and regardless of the degree of tan already achieved by one's body.
