The sun is a great source of vitamin D and it makes you feel good. However, excessive UV exposure can harm your skin significantly. Utilizing sunscreen is the safest approach to developing a tan. Sunscreens come in a wide variety of forms, but not all of them are created equal. In order to achieve an even tan without endangering your health, follow these tips:
It is also important to make sure you wash your hands after applying sunscreen
It is also important to make sure you wash your hands after applying bulk sunscreen. The sun can be harmful, but so can the chemicals found in lotions and creams that contain a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor). So, it’s important to wash off any excess product on your skin before going about your workday or relaxing at home.
It’s also important to thoroughly cleanse the skin after applying sunscreen, as well as before going to bed. This helps prevent clogged pores from forming under the surface of the skin while retaining moisture levels while sleeping so that they do not dry out overnight, causing wrinkles and other signs of aging prematurely.
It is important to use sunscreen which keeps your skin hydrated
Sunscreen that keeps your skin hydrated is essential. Before exposure, a moisturizer with SPF 20 or higher should be used because doing so will help avoid dryness and irritation. During the day, some people have a propensity to forget to apply sunscreen on their neck, scalp, and ears, but these areas are just as vulnerable to solar damage as the rest of your body. Applying a moisturizer with an SPF 30 minutes before going outside is also beneficial since it allows the moisturizer to absorb into dry skin before you are exposed to UVA/UVB radiation for extended periods of time.
Choose an Oil-Free Lotion
The best kind of sunscreen for body bronzing is one that has an oil-free formula. Oils are notorious for sliding off the skin, which means you have to reapply them often. The more frequently you have to re-apply your lotion or spray-on sunscreen, the more likely it is that your body will become sunburned.
This also means that using an oil-free lotion will help prevent blemishes (and zits!). Oils can clog pores and cause acne breakouts on top of making it harder for you to get a full tan because they don’t absorb well into the skin.
Apply Sunscreen to Dry Skin 20 Minutes Before Exposure
Apply sunscreen to dry skin. A lot of people make the mistake of applying sunscreen right after getting out of the shower or bathtub, which is actually a bad idea. Sunscreens are designed to be applied on dry skin because that’s when they work best and absorb better into your body. If you apply a moisture-based product before using sunscreen, it will dilute the effectiveness of your sun protection by breaking down its ingredients.
Wait 20 minutes before going out into the sun! You may think that if you apply sunscreen 20 minutes before going outside then you don’t have much time left while you’re outside in the sun, but this isn’t true at all! The UV rays from sunlight penetrate deep into your skin and cause damage even if they don’t seem like they’re hitting directly on top yet; so, if you wait until those rays start burning before putting on more layers (s) of protection it might not be enough time for them all to soak in properly (and therefore protect).
Your best bet is always just to play it safe and wait at least 20 minutes between applying any kind of lotion/cream product because no matter how good something looks or smells there’s no excuse not to take precautions against harmful rays given how easily accessible products exist these days!
Reapply Sunscreen Every Two Hours
The first rule of tanning is to apply sunscreen as often as you can, but there are also some things that you should never do with your skin:
Don’t go in the sun without any protection at all; there is no such thing as a safe tan. Even if you think it’s not hot out or if it’s cloudy outside, your body can still burn from UV rays reflected off surfaces like sand and pavement! And don’t forget about snow: snow reflects up to 80% of UV radiation (compared with just 10% for water)!
That means that even when it’s cold outside and there’s plenty of snow on the ground, make sure that you’re wearing enough clothing and using an SPF 50+ rated sunscreen before heading outside for more than 15 minutes at a time. If possible, find shade whenever possible; remember that even an umbrella won’t protect against UVA rays!
Don’t Forget to Apply Sunscreen on Your Scalp, Ears, And Neck
There are also parts of your body that you need to pay special attention to when applying sunscreen. These include:
Scalp, ears, and neck. The sun can cause damage to the skin on these areas even if they don’t appear tan in color. Sunscreen should be applied before exposure to the sun and reapplied at least every two hours or after swimming or sweating heavily.
Hands and feet. These areas are often overlooked because they are not exposed when people wear shorts or swimsuits—but they still need protection from harmful UV rays! Apply a generous amount of sunscreen over all exposed areas (both front and back), then rub it into your hands until it disappears into your skin for the best results.
To get an even tan without the harm of UV rays, apply sunscreen properly
Use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. The higher the number, the longer it will protect you from harmful rays. SPF stands for sun protection factor, and it indicates how well your skin will be protected from UVB (burning) rays when using that particular product.
Apply 20 minutes before going out in the sun to give time for absorption into your skin and to make sure there’s no white residue left on your body after applying lotion.
The best way to get a beautiful tan without getting burnt is to apply sunscreen properly. While there are plenty of products on the market, choosing one that will keep your skin hydrated and moisturized is important in order for it to work effectively. It may seem like an extra step at first but once you start using these tips regularly, you’ll see how much better your tanned skin looks!
