How to get a good tan in 3 steps
Tan in your very own backyard or at the beach. Good weather is here to stay, you visit the beach for the first time but the impact can be a little traumatic until you get golden-brown skin.
The transition from “dazzling white” to a healthy color can be done as soon as possible, following some tips for getting a good tan taking advantage of the sun rays, while protecting it.
Pay attention to the following tips:
1. Exfoliate & moisturize: in order to extend your suntan, it is important to eliminate dead skin to renew the dermic skin layer which will be exposed to the sun. Your tan will stay longer this way.
After exfoliation, your skin will need to be moisturized. Apply body lotion or any moisturizer to compensate dryness after sun exposure. You can select a moisturizing firming cream.
2. Protection. Choose the most suitable suntanner according to your skin. Get informed before you expose your skin and protect it with the most suitable suncare to avoid the appearance of skin blemish in the near future. Apply on face, neck, neckline and hands.
Type 1. Very White skin, red-haired, light eyes, freckles. SPF 60.
