Perfect tan, the importance of hydration

Summer arrives anticipated by lots of heat and sunshine. The quest for the perfect tan could be the title of a movie, in fact it is what we women want during the summer.

Sunbathing has so many beneficial effects on our bodies; it promotes the production of vitamin D, a boon for bones and the immune system, as well as, of course, giving us the much-desired tan. However, it is good to be very careful when exposing ourselves to the sun’s rays, as without proper skin and body preparation, and without sunscreen, we can face even very serious problems.

But it is not only with protection, which is absolutely essential, that we avoid sunburn, erythema, skin aging and get the perfect, beautiful and long-lasting tan, there is a simple and affordable way that greatly improves the effects of sun exposure: hydration!

If there is any magic on this planet, it is contained in water.

(Loren Eiseley)

Our body is composed mostly of water. Infants have a water percentage of 75 percent of total body mass; in adults it is about 65 percent. That is why good hydration is critical to our well-being. Follow me I’m about to explain how good hydration improves your tan. I’m Mrs Adorable and I love giving you tips on wellness and the perfect tan.


Imagine you are on vacation, at the beach, lake or mountain and enjoying a beautiful sunny day outside, what happens is that the body exposed to the sun reacts by activating melanin and through a natural process colors the skin, creating a shield to protect it. But melanin alone is not enough, the natural protection mechanism in fact does not filter UV rays, so it is necessary to help the action of melanin with a good sunscreen that has a protection factor suitable for our skin.

But there is another action you can take to improve your tan is to make your skin look better-you can moisturize. Hydrated skin increases protection, as fluid intake, especially during summer, prevents tissue dehydration, skin regenerates more easily by stimulating the activation of our body’s natural protection against the sun’s rays.


During the summertime, due to the heat and sun, an increase in fluid consumption occurs in our bodies, at the same time exposure to the sun often causes annoying sunburns that can make the vacation less enjoyable. If you don’t hydrate properly, the outermost layers of the dermis dry out, losing their natural elasticity and ability to retain water; dehydration results in less protection and a higher risk of sunburn. It is easy to see the importance of good hydration, especially when you decide to sunbathe, and that is why it is very important to listen to your body; in fact, it is it that sends us so many signals to indicate that you need to supplement fluids. When there is a nice day, perhaps with a little wind, it is very easy to lose large amounts of fluids without realizing it, but interpreting some of the signs early on allows you to quickly run for cover. Slight dizziness, feeling thirsty, fatigue and bowel irregularities are eloquent alarm bells that indicate we are in water supply.


Have you seen how important it is to moisturize properly? Do you know that we can act directly on the skin? A good after-sun cream for example is great for keeping the skin properly hydrated and preparing it for the next day but there is a little secret I am going to let you in on that hardly anyone knows, after all I am Mrs Adorable!

Did you know that hyaluronic acid, which we all know for its aesthetic effects, is actually a friend to the tan?

Hyaluronic acid retains fluid right there where it is needed, in the different layers of the skin, plumping it up and making it more hydrated, thus preparing it to receive the sun’s rays, improving sunburn resistance.

There are cosmetics that contain hyaluronic acid in 5 different molecular weights, and in addition to acting in the different layers of the skin making it more beautiful, smooth, toned and glowing, they allow you to get a better tan.

What more could you ask for? From Mrs Adorable, good perfect tan and good hydration.
