Sunbathing: why do you get more tanned in the mountains ?

No comments

If I say tan, probably sea is the word that almost certainly comes to mind. not everyone knows, however, that the mountain is the queen of tanning ! Yes, it’s all true in the mountains you get tanned more!

I’m Mrs Adorable and I’m about to reveal some curiosities about tanning at high altitude . It is not absolutely necessary to choose the beach for sunbathing, on the contrary the mountain tans more intensely and faster , the reason is simple, the more you climb and the less atmosphere you have between you and the sun, which means less natural filters for solar radiation which are more intense, this explains why sunbathing in the mountains is much more intense and faster. The most powerful sun rays quickly stimulate the formation of melanin, the skin’s natural protection mechanism that is the basis of tanning.

Why does it seem exactly the opposite ?

Do you know why you have the feeling that you tan less in the mountains? The temperature is much cooler than the sea and is often accompanied by a pleasantly crisp air, this combination eliminates the sensation of heat on the skin experienced at the sea and leads one to believe that the intensity of the sun’s rays is lower. In reality it is much easier to get sunburned in the mountains , because the coolness leads to prolonged exposure to the sun and when you realize that your skin is red it is too late. There are particular conditions where the intensity of radiation is much stronger, such as when you are near streams, lakes or glaciers. The sun’s rays in this case become much more powerful because in addition to having less atmosphere and therefore less filter, they are reflected by water and snow causing redness, burns and erythema even more quickly.

Sunscreen yes or no ?

Protection is a must that must never be lacking in the mountains or at the sea , in addition to protecting us from sunburn, it protects against premature aging of the skin and the long-term development of even serious diseases. The advice I would like to give you is to increase the protection factor and use a SPF 30 sunscreen, so hiking, canoeing on the lake or outdoor activities at high altitude will be pleasant and will give a tan that is the envy of the friends who have chosen a beach holiday. I also recommend that you repeat the application of the cream several times during the day to restore the effectiveness of the protection factor. You don’t need to climb Everest to enjoy the greater intensity of the sun’s rays, even at modest altitudes you get a lot of tans and it is essential to protect yourself so as not to ruin your holiday .

Is the after sun cream useful in the mountains ?

Absolutely yes! The after sun cream is essential for the well-being of the skin as it nourishes, moisturizes and helps in the healing of any redness. At the end of the day, after enjoying the breathtaking views that only the mountains can offer and after a relaxing bath, treat yourself to a massage to gently spread the after-sun cream, not only is it a pleasant cuddle, but also gives the skin nutrients and hydration. to reduce redness due to sun exposure and prepare the skin for the next day in the open air.

I believe that sunbathing is almost exclusively associated with the sea because most people prefer it in summer to spend their holidays there, perhaps it is natural to think of the beach and the sunbed as the ideal situation for sunbathing, in reality we discovered together that in the mountains the sun is much stronger , especially in the presence of streams, lakes or glaciers and it is easier to have an intense tan but it is very important to pay close attention to protection to have a healthy and strong tan to enjoy the benefits of the sun and have a healthy and radiant skin.

Good mountain tan, healthy and strong from Mrs Adorable.

How it should be?

A good after-sun cream must have quality and natural ingredients to optimize the beneficial effects and give relief to the skin, it must have a good texture that is not too liquid that allows the skin to absorb quickly, be perfumed but not too much so as not to leave persistent scents that mask the natural smell of the skin and interfere with deodorants or perfumes and finally the best format is the dispenser that allows precise dispensing of the desired quantity to avoid waste .

How should it be used?

The after-sun cream should be applied abundantly with a circular massage on the face and body immediately after exposure to the sun. A good after-sun cream is quickly absorbed without leaving traces of greasiness. At the end of the day on the beach or in the mountains, and after a regenerating shower, the application of the after-sun cream becomes a pleasant routine, which relaxes and refreshes our body, preparing it for the evening and the next day of vacation.

Relieving redness and irritation is very important because it immediately gives a feeling of well-being and eliminates that annoying effect of tightening skin. Furthermore, the ability to hydrate the skin is just as important as protection during exposure. During the summer and especially during the holidays it is essential to take care of hydration if we want to get the perfect tan . I have often talked about it in the blog but if you missed the article in which I talk about it specifically here it is:

Perfect tan, the importance of hydration

Which one to choose ?

Rely on quality products, avoid products that are too cheap or in family size packs , just like sun creams, after sun cream also has an expiry date and as the months go by it loses its effectiveness. The best ones use tested formulations that do not cause side effects and rashes on the most sensitive skin.

In conclusion, an excellent after-sun cream restores hydration and freshness to the skin and helps make the tan unforgettable! 

Happy holidays and good hydration and good tan from your Mrs Adorable.

How to have fresh and hydrated tanned skin

No comments

Sun, sun and more sun, summer is in its full splendor, some of you have already gone on vacation, others are leaving and many will take a well-deserved relaxing break in August, in common you have the desire for a tanned skin .

The sun is our ally , thanks to its rays the precious vitamin D is produced for our well-being, bones and muscles benefit from it and it is an incredible panacea for a good mood. So under the tan, the sun’s rays, with the necessary precautions, are our friends.

And that’s exactly what I want to talk to you about in this article, I want to reveal practical tips to get the most out of your tan and have a smooth and hydrated skin . I’m Mrs Adorable and these are my TOP 5 tips.

Pelle abbronzata e beta carotene

FIRST TIP: Beta carotene

Beta carotene is an incredible ally for tanning , it makes it more colored and golden but few people know that beta carotene makes the skin soft and healthy as it promotes tissue growth and repair. Its name is closely linked to the carrot that we all know for its pro tan properties. During the summer it is essential to take beta carotene because the sun, the wind and the sea salt tend to dry out and crack our skin. Its action allows the skin to regenerate faster and regenerates the tissues helping the healing of minor burns and erythema.
I talked about it in these articles:

SECOND TIP: Moisturize the skin

How thirsty do you get in summer? Normally in the summer there is a feeling of very strong thirst, our body warns us that we must drink and quench our thirst, in the same way our skin sends us unequivocal signals when it needs hydration , the epidermis must be considered as if it were a person and in the summer it needs a lot of extra hydration. A few simple actions allow us to hydrate the skin such as using hyaluronic acid. In addition to being a terrific tonic, it helps retain water while keeping the skin soft and hydrated. Hydrated skin tans much better than dry, aching skin.

THIRD TIP: Moisturize from within

We are made of water , drinking the right amount is essential for our well-being. But water is not the only natural source to draw from to have a hydrated body. In addition to drinking at least two liters of water a day, it is important to supplement the diet with lots of fruit and vegetables , as well as being fresh and ideal foods for the summer, they bring many vitamins to our body for a unique mix of well-being and energy. But how beautiful is a super colorful salad or a mega fruit salad refreshed by a scoop of ice cream to look at?

FOURTH TIP: Take breaks

Yes I know, the temptation is strong, you are finally at the sea, the desire to tan could lead you to exaggerate with exposure, but a skin suffering from too much radiation could get irritated, burned and rashes could appear , not to mention the damage in the long run period such as premature aging. If you want a fresh and healthy skin you have to give it “time to breathe” and expose yourself avoiding the hottest hours, gradually increasing the exposure time day after day and obviously always protecting with a good sunscreen.

FIFTH TIP: Pamper yourself at the end of the day

You hydrated yourself, you took beta-carotene, you hydrated your skin and you protected yourself with a good sunscreen well but not great ! To complete the work at the end of the day, after a refreshing shower, treat yourself to a relaxing massage by applying the after-sun cream. The after-sun cream nourishes and moisturizes the skin, refreshing it, giving relief in case of minor burns and redness and preparing the skin for the next day.

And as always good tan with healthy, fresh and hydrated tanned skin from your Mrs Adorable.
