Lets face it. A nice tan makes you look and feel great. In addition, it can hide ugly cellulite and also make you look thinner.
If you are traveling or you just want to look good for an event? s to come, it? s important to establish a base tan so that you avoid getting sunburned.
Here are 10 tips
tanning to help you get a nice base tan without burning (you should ask your doctor if you have a question or specific medical concerns).
1 .???? Be careful if you are on prescription medications: blood pressure medications, antibiotics, skin problem medications are just a few categories of drugs you preferably should not be taken if you are tanning or spending lots of ‘time out. See the table of photosensitizing drugs in your local tanning salon to be sure that your medications are not listed. These drugs can affect the results of your tan, it is more difficult to tan and you’re more likely to burn.
2 .???? Always use a good quality in tanning lotion. It will help your skin to absorb UV, which will help the tanning process. There are also special ingredients that stimulate melanin production, such as tyrosine, which will give you the most from each tanning session. It? S best to implement in tanning lotion immediately prior to your session or 1-2 hours prior is even better if you can. Its application in advance allows your skin to absorb the lotion better so you will get the best results from your tanning session.
3 .???? Apply after tan lotion as well to take care of your skin and keep hydrated. Apply twice a day minimum to keep your skin happy, once in the morning and again at night before bed. It can also improve your tan and make it more durable, the key to a great tan is healthy skin!
4 .???? If you are just beginning to tan, remember to start conservatively. Whatever you do, you don? T want to burn you can not tan on top of a burn and you will have. The old saying? I always burn first and then I Tan? This is completely false, it simply does not have to be that way. If you burn, your skin is telling you that? S too much sun, and then you peel. So start with a small number of minutes and the way you work. If you have fair skin but do have the ability to tan, you should not go more than 6-7 minutes your first time in a standard 20 minute tanning beds (also known as a Level 1 tanning bed). For stronger beds with shorter tan times, you would go for minutes or less.
5 .???? Go once every 24-48 hours to build your base. Depending on how your skin is done, you can decide if you can go once a day or once every two days. A good rule is that if your skin is not pink within 24 hours after your session, you can probably go again the next day without any problems. If your skin is pink, feels dry and irritated, or you have a rash, is a signal that you went for too many minutes and need to take a break until it feels better and then again.
6 .???? Once you build your base, you really don?? not need to tan as often. Thus, according to the type of bed you use, you should go 2-3 times a week to keep your tan, even less in stronger beds. This is where I see many people go overboard, tanning every day when she is not really necessary. Many people enjoy the relaxation time that tanning provides, but tanning too often can and will speed up your aging process and cause other skin ailments over a long period of time. Just like everything in life, moderation is the key!
7 .???? Wear safety glasses at all times! Many people think that putting a towel over his face will block UV rays, but it doesn? T and repeated exposure to UV can cause major eye problems later in life. Would you rather be blind or have lighter eyelids? I think I would choose the latter, but that’s just me. For your own safety, please wear protective goggles!
8 .???? Since tan does not require the use of a swimsuit, a towel to cover these? sensitive? No areas? t see the sun very often if you want to tan all over. At first, try to cover these areas for half the session and see how it goes. Gradually, you can remove the towel earlier and earlier until you don? T need to use more. The towel acts as a filter, but won? T completely block UV rays, so you still get the tanning process started.
9 .???? To avoid folds or pressure tanning lines, you must move your legs in different positions during your session. For the first half, try laying down with both arms extended above your head and legs apart. For the second half, bring your arms down next to your sides but away from your body, and re-position your legs by raising one knee slightly for a half of the remaining time, then the other leg do the same .
10 .???? Try to avoid wearing makeup, deodorant, perfumes or other before tanning. Some of these things can make your skin more sensitive and may have a bad reaction with your skin when exposed to UV. If you wear lots of deodorant, you may notice that you are not tanning as well around your armpits, and you must remove it before tanning.
When it comes to tanning, every person? s skin type is different and results may vary. Consult your local tanning salon for an analysis of skin type (Consultant Tan a smart tan certified) so you can get a good idea of where to start. And if you are very sensitive to the sun or Don? T want no UV at all, you can try the latest UV-free tanning alternatives.
