The Ultimate Tan in Seven Easy Steps
Step 1: Perfect Your Pre- and Post-Tanning Routines
Get a beautiful, long-lasting tan by following the proper pre- and post-tanning routines. Before tanning, exfoliate to clear out dead skin cells and lather up on sunscreen. Moisturize your skin afterward using soothing after-sun gel, creams, and lotions.
Step 2: Never Skip Sun Protection
Getting a tan is different from getting a sunburn. To achieve that perfect golden brown color, you cannot skimp on sun protection. You want a deep, gorgeous tan not red, patchy sunburn marks on your skin. Use a good sunscreen with a broad-spectrum coverage and at least an SPF 30.
Wear sunglasses and a hat, too, because the skin on your face is more sensitive compared to the rest of your body. Finally, load up on beta-carotene to boost your skin’s ability to resist sunburn. Take a supplement or load up on beta-carotene rich foods like carrots, tomatoes, and spinach.
Step 3: Prevent Overexposure to Real Sunlight
You don’t have to overexpose your skin to direct sunlight to get that perfect sun-kissed glow. In fact, if you want a long-lasting and healthy tan, it’s best to take it slow. Get moderate doses of sunlight and build up gradually. Your initial sun exposure should not be more than half an hour a day. Be careful not to overdo it and burn your skin because that will make tanning even more difficult.
Step 4: Stay Hydrated
Keep your skin hydrated inside and out to maintain your tan. Drink lots of water and use a rich moisturizer to nourish your skin after tanning.
Step 5: Choose the Correct Tanning Lotion
Using the correct tanning lotion can help you get that perfect tan faster. When choosing a tanning lotion, consider your skin type and desired color. Determine the type of tanning lotion that you need as well. If you are using a tanning bed or lamp, use an indoor tanning lotion. An outdoor tanning lotion, on the other hand, will be perfect for you if you prefer sunbathing.
Step 6: Lather Up with Tanning Oil
