Summer is approaching. We all love to have a little sunshine and a tan is always a wonderful way to looking extra glowy and give you that little bit of added confidence we all need.

 

Here are some tips to TAN SAFELY

 

Before sun exposure:

  • Shave 24 hours before tanning
  • Exfoliate your skin before, this is essential to achieving an even tan
  • Mouterise to keep your skin hydrated ( mainly in the dry areas)
  • Is in sun,  wear sun cream.

 

One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun.

 

Why?

A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems — as well as increase the risk of skin cancer.

 

How can we prevent sun damage?            

For the most efective sun protection:

  • Use sunscreen.  Apply a generous amount of sun screen every 2 hours  or more often if you’re swimming or perspiring.
  • Seek shade. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are strongest as it could be harmful to your skin.
  • Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats. Also consider laundry additives, which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet protection for a certain number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing — which is specifically designed to block ultraviolet rays.

 

Post sun exposure:

After having a relaxing day in the sun, you must take take of your skin after.

 

  • Take a cool shower. If you have been swimming or in the sun for a long period of time your skin can become dehydrated so taking a cool shower will help with that and clean it.

 

Stay hydrated. Our body is made up of 60% of water so it is important to keep hydrated and it helps with your skin.

 

  • Exfoliating. Avoid exfoliating so much as it may cause skin to peel and become very sore.
  • Aftersun cream. Ensure that you use plenty of aftersun cream to help soothe burnt skin.

 

 

 

We hope you enjoy our tips for a safe and enjoyable tan this year!
