Tanned skin looks very attractive and spectacular. To get a smooth and beautiful tan in the open sun, you need to properly care for the skin and have at your disposal enough time that she managed to get a golden hue. For a quicker result, you need to apply some tricks.
Preparing for beach rest
Some people need to spend an 2-3 day on the beach to get a beautiful tan, others need a few weeks. If your vacation does not allow you to count on a long beach holiday, start preparing for it in advance.
Get the vitamins for the skin in the pharmacy and start taking them. From being in the sun, the skin strongly loses moisture, free radicals accumulate in it, which leads to aging and the appearance of new wrinkles. Vitamin complexes will help minimize the damage caused by the sun.
Include in the diet carrot juice, which contains a large amount of beta-carotene (provitamin A), necessary for the production of melanin – the pigment of sunburn. The best provitamin A is absorbed in the presence of fats – drink carrot juice with sour cream or a small amount of vegetable oil. In addition to carrots, beta-carotene contains apricots, peaches, melons, pumpkins, watermelons.
In the production of melanin, the amino acid tyrosine also plays an important role. It is found in products of animal origin: meat, fish, liver, as well as in avocados, beans, almonds.
Twice a week, use scrubs for body and face. Since skin cells are constantly dying off, tanning can turn out to be uneven and unstable, and when using scrub, young skin acquires a more beautiful and uniform shade. After the procedure, always use moisturizing creams or lotions.
If possible, before going on vacation several times visit the solarium. Start with short sessions – 1-2 minutes. Then on the beach in the early days you can sunbathe a little longer.
How to quickly sunbathe in the sun
In the first days on vacation in the open sun can be no more than 15-20 minutes. Then the time can be gradually increased to 1 hours. In the period from 11 to 16 hours it is impossible to sunbathe – at this time the sun is the most active. Do not forget to use sunscreen. When choosing this remedy, remember that the lighter the skin, the higher the protection factor.
Speeding up the process of melanin production and darkening of the skin can be done with the help of cream-stimulants of sunburn. These funds allow you to reduce the time spent in the sun, moisturize the skin and promote the rapid appearance of a uniform golden hue.
Help tan and natural cosmetic oils. They nourish the skin, moisturize it, increase the production of melanin and protect the skin from premature aging. Some cosmetic oils for sunburn are available with sunscreen filters – these products are suitable for light skin. Oils without UV filters can only be used by dark-colored ones.
