Fast and perfect tanning, the dream of many, a goal at first sight unattainable that in reality it is possible to achieve with small tricks.
How do you get the perfect tan quickly? There are many actions you can do, from the right foods to body care and mistakes to avoid: here are all the tips for getting a perfect tan!
1 PREPARE YOUR SKIN FOR THE SUN
The first step to consider is the preparation of the skin for the summer season.
Very often we just spread the sunscreen under the beach umbrella, it is not just a mistake, but it is a behavior that generates a series of problems, such as sunburn and erythema.
Gentle scrubs, skin hydration using hyaluronic acid creams and the use of sunscreen, already from spring exposure, prepare the skin to face the strong sun of summer holidays with maximum effectiveness and protection.
However, the skin must be treated both externally and internally, nourishing it with dedicated supplements based on antioxidants and beta carotene, starting to take them 3 or 4 months before the holidays. During the same period, you prefer a healthy diet.
1.1 Whe are what we eat
A healthy diet prepares our body for the best, allowing you to tan well and quickly. Hydration, like nutrients, is very important and must take place both on the skin, with moisturizers and hyaluronic acid-based creams, and entirely by taking the right amount of water daily.
2. What to eat for a quick tan
Nutrition and tanning go hand in hand, but what are the right foods? Ok, you know very well that fruit and vegetables must not be missing, but there are other foods that are pro suntan, didn’t you know that? Well I’m Mrs Adorable, I’m here to tell you!
I also point you out an article in wich i talk about it:
In addition to beta carotene, it is very useful to take foods containing Omega 3 such as walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, oil and flax seeds, chia seeds, avocados, algae, small fish and caught fish. Omega 3 make the skin more elastic and compact, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and promote the formation of melanin, the substance responsible for tanning.
3. Perfect tan and fair skin
Even those with fair skin can get an excellent tan but it will take much more time and a more gradual exposure, always accompanied by sunscreen with a high protection factor.
Avoiding the hottest hours with fair skin is even more important to avoid sunburn and rashes.
In addition to the high protection and the after sun cream, if you have fair skin follow all the advice on supplements and nutrition that remain the same dedicated to those with a darker complexion.
4. Some tips to prolong the tan
Nutrition, supplements, months of preparation, we can finally show off a screaming tan but now a new problem arises: how to avoid losing it in a short time?
With a few small and simple tricks it is possible to prolong our tan.
I recommend maintaining a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water. Showering is preferable to taking a bath, using delicate and moisturizing products, pat your skin dry instead of rubbing it with a towel and finally use a moisturizer.
As far as possible, avoid air conditioning and prolonged swimming in the pool, chlorine is a sworn enemy of tanning.
Pay attention to the preparation and maintenance and you will have a more beautiful and lasting tan, according to Mrs Adorable.
