Sun Lovers Guide to Tanning

how to tan in the summer

I love tanning, While I often like to fake it I do really love the sun.I just prefer the way I look when Im a little bronzed. I feel prettier, slimmer and just feel like I look a bit healthier. As it’s summer and Im sure we are all (hopefully) jetting off somewhere nice for a week or two so it’s time to talk natural tans. I recently met up with some sun care experts who shared their top tips on making the most of your tanning experiences.

No Sunbeds

I used to use sun beds but now I’m firmly against them. While most sun beds claim to give you a healthy tan it’s the wrong type of UV they pump out. UVB stimulates vitamin D where as most sun beds are purely UVA’s. Using sun beds can increase your risk of cancer by up to 75%. Just be super careful.

Understand Sunscreen

SPF is quite hard to get your head around. Look for terms like ‘broad spectrum’ or the UVA logo, words like ‘high’ and look at the star rating if your bottle has one. If you’re pale try sunscreen that are SPF 50 or if your a little darker go for SPF30. Sunscreen should be applied every two hours and while experts recommend using a golfball sized blob for every square inch of the skin that isn’t possible.

Slow and Steady

Keeping your tan going slow and steady reduces tour risk of sunburn and gives you a healthier tan. Sitting out in the sun all day will only increase your chances of burning and skin damage. Control your tan time by doing it in short bursts throughout the day going your skin time to produce any more melanin (the tanning pigment)

supplements

I was skeptical but taking supplements to boost your skins natural defence again UV can help your skins ability to tan. Tan accelerating creams are a bunch of lies and DO not work. Nothing you apply to your skin can help product more melanin so try and boost from within.

Faux it

When in doubt fake it. While it offers no sun protection and you should obviously still wear sunscreen going for a spray tan or using a self tanner is skin friendly and doesn’t harm the skin at all. It’ll also boost first day bikini confidence!

  1. I used to use sunbeds but now I can't believe I did, especially with how dangerous they are! I'm definitely a fake tan girl but I do love to sit in the sun and get the real thing! At least that doesn't rub off on your clothes!

    1. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage ,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

      My name is Mark Davis, my family and i live in NY USA.It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr brave really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr brave castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr.Brave can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his email:bravespellcaster@gmail.com ,or kindly visit he website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com .

  7. I love a natural tan, but these days I keep the factor 30 on and try to spend more of my time in the shade. I still pick up colour, but more slowly. I also recently tried Cocoa Brown tan and it looked really natural and lasted about four to five days. Thanks for the great tips! x

  10. I used to be one of those people who lies out in the sun and just 'cooks' but these days I'm more of a slow and steady wins the race, Opting for higher factor sunscreen and short stints in the sun! Sometimes it's just far too hot to lie there on a sunbed though!

  11. I never tan naturally as I'm so pale and I'm so against sunbeds but I'm also not a fan of fake tan, it looks like so much hassle and so many girls look silly wearing it. Destined to be a snowman forever!

  12. I'm pretty sure it's a golfball sized blob for all exposed skin every two hours, not per square inch of skin- that would be insane! The FDA guidelines just say that amount for exposed skin. So as long as you are generously applying that should be good enough.

  18. I use sunscreen everyday through out the year. I had the worst sun stroke of my life a few years ago and my face looked like a mosaic piece. I've been conscience of protecting it ever since.
