Summer is near: the risks of sun exposure in the spring and how to prevent them

No comments

Spring is a season that brings with it a feeling of rebirth in nature. With the sun coming out the air becomes hotter and sweeter, and the smell of the flowers is everywhere. For us women this is a wonderful time to feel all the positive emotions that spring brings with it.

It is time to wear fun and colorful dresses, take long walks outside and enjoy the sun on our skin. Spring is inviting us to be a part of nature, to find inspiration in the beauty around us and to fill ourselves up with energy to take on life’s challenges. With sun on our skin and wind in our hair we can feel the joy of being alive and appreciate every gift that life offers us.

Springtime coming brings with it warmer temperatures and the will to be outside, but also bigger risks because of our exposure to the sun. Many of us in fact underestimate the dangers of tanning or being exposed to the sun without adequate protection during the season, but there are many ways to prepare.

E’ in primavera che la natura risveglia i sensi, l’aria aperta e il sole rinvigoriscono l’anima e infondono nuova vita nel cuore.

The risks of sun exposure in the spring

UV rays can cause sun damage, this is not only painful but also harmful for the skin’s health. Sunburns increase the risk of developing diseases. Even women with darker complexion or who do not burn easily are at risk of developing long term skin issues if exposed to the sun without adequate protection.

Sun exposure also accelerates skin ageing, leading to wrinkles, discoloration and loss of elasticity. This can be especially obvious on the skin of the face and hands, more often exposed to the sun.

Simple precautions

What are the precautions that can be taken to be protected from the sun in the springtime?

It is important to avoid prolonged exposure, even if the sun is nice and not too hot it could lead to sunburn of more sensitive skin.

Also, it is important to use a cream with a high protection factor (at least 30) especially on the body parts more exposed to the sun. Sunscreen should be applied at least 15-30 minutes before exposure to the sun and applied again during the day.

To conclude do not forget to hydrate during your nice day out


In nature there are substances that if taken in the correct amount can be wonderful for our skin.

Supplements for beta-carotene and Q10 enzyme can offer many advantages while out in the sun in the spring. Beta-carotene is an antioxidant converted by the body into Vitamin A. This vitamin is essential for skin and eyes’ health. It also aids in protecting the skin from exposure to UV rays. Beta-carotene can also help in keeping a tan for longer periods of time, preventing the loss of that beautiful golden hue.

Q10 enzyme is an antioxidant naturally present in our body’s cells. During exposure to the sun Q10 helps to protect the skin from damages done by free radicals caused by UV rays. Q10 enzyme also helps in skin cell regeneration keeping the skin fresh and youthful.

Using beta-carotene and Q10 enzymes supplements can contribute to protecting the skin during sun exposure in the springtime, preventing damages done by UV rays and maintaining a tan for longer periods of time. It is however important to note that supplements are not a substitute for sunscreen and other precautions needed during sun exposure.


In conclusion sun exposure in the springtime can be nice and healthy if the right precautions are taken. Protecting the skin and eyes from the sun can help to prevent long term damages and enjoy the nice weather in a safe way.

Beta-carotene supplements: the secret to tanned and protected skin

No comments

Tanning is important for many people; it is seen as gratifying being sun-kissed skin and seeing a golden and radiant glow on your skin. Tanning can make us feel more attractive and confident making us look lively and generally healthy.


It is not only beauty related: tanning can also have a positive effect on one’s mood and health. Sunlight is an important source of vitamin D, helpful in maintaining healthy bones and muscles, helping with the mood and strengthening the immune system. Exposure to the sun also helps with the production of endorphins, “happiness’ neurotransmitters” that help us feel more relaxed, happy and at peace.


It is, however, important to remember that tanning can be harmful if one does not take the necessary precautions. UV rays can cause irreparable damages to the skin, like wrinkles, discoloration, melanoma and other skin tumors. For this reason, it is necessary to protect the skin with high protection sunscreen, avoid direct exposure to the sun during the hottest time of the day and see a doctor for any suspicious signs appearing on the skin. With the right care it is possible to enjoy all the benefits of tanning without any health risk to achieve our natural beauty.


Beta-carotene supplement is an important ally in preparing the skin for a nice tanning session. Beta-carotene is a plant pigment found in food like carrots, tomatoes, melons and spinach. Our body converts it into Vitamin A, beneficial for the skin’s health.

Specifically, beta-carotene acts as a natural antioxidant, aiding in protecting the skin from damages caused by free radicals. It also stimulates the production of melanin, the pigment that gives the skin its color, helping with an even and long lasting sunkissed complexion.


Taking beta-carotene supplements at least a month before going out in the sun can help in preparing the skin to be tanned, making it more resistant to damages caused by UV rays and preventing sunburns.

It is important to understand that a beta-carotene supplement does not substitute sunscreen but using them together is helpful for a healthy sun exposure. Remember to always protect yourself with sunscreen suitable for your skin type and avoid direct sun exposure during the hottest time of the day.

Happy safe and natural sunbathing

Summer, sea and the scent of sunscreen, it’s a wonderful feeling that makes you feel like a solida; winter, snow and the scent of sunscreen should be just as beautiful and characterizing for snowshoeing and skiing.

Lo senti quel pungente profumo di freddo nell’aria, il grigio negli occhi e quei lunghi tramonti? E’ l’inverno che arriva.

(Stephen Littleword)

I’m Mrs Adorable and I’m about to tell you something you may not know. The dreaded UVA and UVB rays in summer are present in massive quantities even in the mountains , I talked about them some time ago in two articles:

In a nutshell, at high altitudes, due to the reduction in the atmosphere, the sun’s rays are more powerful and potentially dangerous, moreover, when we find ourselves on the snow to ski, snowshoe or enjoy moments of relaxation outside the shelter on a deckchair, the effect of refraction increases the amount and power of solar radiation . This is why it is essential to protect the skin with a good sunscreen.

Sun damage at high altitudes

Not using sunscreen in the long term exposes the skin to premature aging caused by solar radiation, while in the short term the risk of sunburn on the face, neck and ears is as real as at the beach in summer. In the mountains we don’t think about it because the cold and the high altitude don’t allow us to perceive the heat of the sun but in reality its power is very high and dangerous. Protecting the skin, as well as giving a very beautiful and uniform color, slows down the skin aging process and keeps the skin soft, hydrated and elastic .

Ragazza sulla neve protezione

Protect the little ones with sunscreen

Did you know that children’s skin is much more fragile and is much more exposed to damage from UV rays?

Children’s skin is thinner and their self-defense system against the sun’s rays is not fully developed . This condition causes 50 to 80 percent more damage and sunburn during childhood and adolescence.

If your children, your nephews or younger cousins love skiing and snowboarding , they must be protected from solar radiation with great attention to ensure that they have fun on the snow in total safety.

When to apply sunscreen

Just like at the beach , to maintain the maximum effectiveness of the protection, the sunscreen should be applied to the exposed parts several times a day, and in the same way, in the evening after the shower, allow yourself a few moments of relaxation with a gentle massage by applying an after-sun cream to soothe and hydrate the skin, preparing it for the next day on the snow.

Happy holidays, let’s hope lots of snow arrives and a good tan, healthy and protected by Mrs Adorable.

How to maintain a golden tan

No comments

How long and how much effort did you go to get a golden and luminous tan ? The holidays pass and the risk is to see the beautiful skin color fade in an instant. Without some small tricks, which few put into practice, in a few days we find ourselves almost at the starting point, regretting our beautiful tan as a thing of the past.

But I’m Mrs Adorable and I’m here to help! I’m about to reveal some secrets to prolong the color of the tan as long as possible. Here are my top 5 tips:

Prolungare l'abbronzatura con i cibi giusti

1- Take care of nutrition

Some time ago I talked about how important nutrition is to have a golden tan, if you missed the articles and you have to leave for the holidays I suggest you give it a peek:

The perfect tan, what to eat

What are foods rich in beta carotene?

In the same way , nutrition plays a fundamental role in prolonging the tan that you have acquired with so much effort, hydration and foods that stimulate melanin are the best way to reach the goal. Get used to consuming a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, prefer yellow-orange ones, antioxidant red fruits, nuts and olive oil, they will help you keep your skin soft avoiding that dryness that accelerates cracking and peeling . Remember that a diet rich in water, fruit and vegetables is not only an excellent ally for tanning but it is a real boon for our body put under the stress of frying and some little vice that we indulge in on vacation. Also, don’t forget about beta carotene, in addition to being an excellent ally of our body, it has the ability to give you a darker skin color, my advice is to take it through diet and quality supplements.

Abbronzatura meglio la doccia

2 – Better to take a shower, avoid a hot bath

You must know that prolonged contact of the skin with the hot water of the bath promotes desquamation. A nice, not too hot shower is an incredible help to keep the skin supple . My advice is to use natural detergents, not too aggressive so as not to wash off the tan.

3 – Pat dry and do not rub

Once you have finished taking a shower , pat your skin dry . Towel rubbing tends to stress the skin and facilitates color loss. Try to choose microfiber towels and bathrobes , as well as being lighter they have an absorbent capacity far superior to the traditional sponge.

In case you have any left over after sun cream from your holidays, use it! It has excellent soothing and moisturizing powers that help keep the skin soft and compact, favouring the preservation of color, and you will also avoid wasting the product which, like sunscreens, has an expiry date.

4 – Avoid air conditioning as much as possible

Do you know that air conditioning is the enemy of your golden tan ? I know, in this period it is practically impossible to do without it but the more you resist and the longer your magnificent tan will last that with so much effort you have achieved. In fact, air conditioning tends to dry the skin, affecting the first state, precisely the colored one, the effect is that dry skin tends to flake much more easily, taking away the summer tan. In conclusion , less air conditioning and a golden tan that lasts longer .

5 – Sun sun and more sun

Summer is still long, but even when autumn arrives, many days will be warm and pleasant for practicing outdoor sports or for taking a walk in a park or for a weekend trip to the lake. Take advantage of these moments, a lunch break, an afternoon off from work in the office, the weekend, take advantage of these moments of relaxation, even 20/30 minutes spent in the sun are enough to fix and prolong the golden tan . Remember, during exposure, to always use sunscreen, protection is important all year round! I talk about it here:

Solar all year round, yes or no ?

To conclude, I wish you a good return from vacation and a very long golden tan. Your Mrs Adorable.

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.

abbronzarsi in montagna, la protezione è importante

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 .

Protezione solare anche in montagna

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.

Adorable Beauty crema doposole gambe

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!

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:

Beta carotene: what it is and how it helps tanning

Beta carotene: an ally for skin protection in summer

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.

Perfect tan with the right protection

No comments

Summer!!! All ready to bask in the sun and show off the most beautiful, golden and luminous tan ever ?

For some time now I have been saying, telling and writing: YOU HAVE TO PROTECT YOURSELF!

Excuse the capital, but I’m Mrs Adorable and my job is to give you the best advice for your safe and healthy beauty .

Everyone likes getting a tan, makes it more beautiful, minimizes skin imperfections, makes it more even and makes us feel more attractive. However, it is necessary to expose yourself to the sun with the awareness that radiation can be very harmful if you do not pay attention to some small, but fundamental rules, for a golden and healthy tan ..

What happens when you expose yourself for too long and unprotected? In the best of cases an annoying sunburn arrives, in the worst rashes and skin inflammations can compromise a good part of the holiday.

Why ruin days of well-deserved relaxation when with the right protection we can instead enjoy the sea, the mountains or afternoons by the pool ?

Phototype, this unknown

Each skin has a different way of reacting to the sun, lighter skins tend to be more sensitive and delicate, while darker or tanned skins tolerate sun exposure better . It may have happened to you to compare yourself with friends and discover that there are those who get tanned without particular problems but there is always the friend who does not go through the summer without getting burned. It all depends on the good rules for sun exposure but also on the phototype .

The phototype is used to classify the skin and indicates the quantity and quality of the melanin that characterizes our color. This classification determines the degree of sensitivity of the skin to sun exposure. But let’s see together the different grades and protections that I recommend:


Blond or red hair with very light skin, my advice is very high protection (SPF 50+);


Blonde or brown hair with fair skin, my advice is very high to high protection (SPF 50);


Dark blond hair with sensitive skin, I recommend medium-high protection (SPF 50 – SPF 30 on already tanned skin);


Brown hair with moderately sensitive skin, I recommend medium protection (SPF 30) with the foresight to start sun exposure gradually in the first days;


Black or dark brown hair and olive complexion, in this case the advice is low protection (SPF 15) 


Very dark or black hair and non-sensitive skin for which low protection is more than enough (SPF 6)

I also recommend that you apply the protection several times during the day , more or less every two hours and after each bath or shower, in order to restore the maximum effectiveness of the filters.

I often say this:

Prevention is better than cure!

Sunscreen not only protects against immediate sun damage but prevents skin aging, I talked about it in this article:

Did you know, sunscreen is the best antiaging

and in this:

Healthy tan protection yourself is very important

What if i got burned?

I always say this, prevention is the best solution, but despite all the attention of the case it can happen, especially for lighter skin, to run into a sunburn, what to do? Here are some simple tips:

  1. After a sunburn, avoid exposure to the sun as much as possible even during a walk , to do so cover yourself with long, fresh, light clothes and natural fabrics. Avoid jeans or tight-fitting clothes.
  2. Prefer a fresh shower in the bathroom and Prefer a fresh shower in the bathroom and gently dry your skin with a soft towel trying to pat and not rub .
  3. Drink plenty of water to hydrate and help your skin heal.

After sun cream

But a perfect tan does not only come from protection, the more you take care of your skin, the more your tan will be a scream ! I recommend that you apply the after-sun cream at the end of each day, as well as being a pleasant pampering, it will help your skin to hydrate, make it softer and ready to face the next day of your holiday at the top.

5 tips for a perfect tan

No comments

Here we are, the summer, the sun, the holidays are approaching and with them the desire for a tan. How much do you want a natural, shiny and even tan that lasts a long time? A lot I imagine, with my advice you will see that the tan will be so beautiful and perfect as to create a pinch of envy in all your friends .

I start with scolding you if you lie in the sun without protection with the belief that you will tan faster, if you use a famous baby oil to intensify the effect of the sun or if you lie down like a lizard during the hottest hours . I scold you not only because they are not the right ways to get a super tan, but above all because sunbathing with those bad habits increases the risk of serious diseases and the skin ages quickly, leaving noticeable marks even at a young age.

If you like, instead, I want to give you some simple but precious tips to get an intense, golden and above all healthy tan. Let’s start:

1. Prepare your skin for the sun

Start well and in advance to find yourself in the lead, if your goal is an intense and golden tan, perhaps without sunburn and erythema to ruin your holiday, you must take care of your skin before arriving at the sea and give yourself the well-deserved relaxation.

How to do?

Start immediately to take care of your skin and prepare it for the sun, keep it hydrated and clean by relying on a wellness center for an exfoliating scrub, get sunscreen with a protection factor suitable for your skin into your beauty routine, start with small exposures sunscreen to stimulate the production of melanin and finally supplement the diet by eating tanning friendly foods, I talked about it in an article, if you lost it here it is:

What are foods rich in beta carotene?

In addition to the skin, it is necessary to hydrate the body by drinking plenty of water, hydration is one of the fundamental factors for a radiant, healthy and lasting tan.

Abbronzatura perfetta, preparar la pelle al sole

2. Choose the right protection for your skin

Choosing the right sunscreen is relatively simple, fair skin needs high protection factors such as SPF 30, darker skin needs lower protection such as SPF 6. Even in the case of already tanned skin, the advice is never to go below the minimum protection factor. Thanks to the filters contained in the cream, in fact, a real barrier is created against the harmful UVB and UVA radiation of the sun, which in fact protect the skin and keep it healthy when exposed to the sun.
Reactivate the protection during the day By now I think you will be tired of hearing this but I can’t do without it, it’s the main rule: under the sun you have to protect yourself! For the protection to be effective you have to spread the cream all over the body, literally from head to toe, but not only, the application must be repeated several times a day because due to the water, perspiration, rubbing against the towel, the protection it tends to decrease until it disappears.

3. A litle sun and the best times

The third piece of advice I would like to give you is to expose yourself to the sun gradually , if you have the possibility, start before the beach holiday, in this way your skin will have time to produce melanin, reducing the risk of erythema and sunburn. If when you arrive at the beach you activate the “lizard mode” remember that the central hours, in addition to being the hottest, are those where the solar radiation is most intense and the risk of sunburn, erythema and damage to the skin is highest. Take some breaks and relax under the umbrella, I’ll tell you a secret, you tan even in the shade ! And finally, to give your skin some respite, give yourself a refreshing shower from time to time.

4. Eat a diet rich in tanning foods

Our well-being depends on the diet and nutrients we take, a balanced diet will not only make you feel good but will make your skin more beautiful by preparing it for a tan . There are foods that naturally color the skin, increase tolerance to sunlight and give you lots of energy. Fruits and vegetables offer you everything you need for a screaming tan, carrots, tomatoes, melon, apricots and cherries are just some of the protagonists that I covered in a blog article and in a post on the Instagram profile. (if you haven’t done so yet follow me @adorablebeautyofficial)

5. Moisturize your skin with after sun

Hydration is a mantra as important as protection , it is essential to hydrate body and skin all year round, but it becomes essential in the summer when we want to get the perfect tan. It is also important to hydrate the skin at the end of a day at the beach, lake or in the mountains. How? Simple, with a good after-sun moisturizer , it will not only give you a beautiful feeling of freshness and relief, but it will better prepare your skin for the next sunny day, helping to make your tan memorable.

Healthy tan, protecting yourself is very important

No comments

The sun is good for you but at the same time it causes serious damage to our skin . These are two certainties, but it is possible to enjoy the benefits by protecting our skin . I have known women who have never used sunscreen because, according to their opinion, the tan would be less intense, I have known women who sprinkled themselves with a very famous baby oil to increase the tanning effect by exposing themselves to incredible risks in the short and long term, I have known women who use beer and fortunately I have known others who have understood the importance of protection, both for an aesthetic factor and for a skin health factor.

Sunbathing does not allow for popular beliefs or improvised solutions.

Sun exposure must take place in a protected way, this is the only and solid base from which to start.

The practices described at the beginning, if repeated for years, can cause irreversible damage even on the most beautiful skin , but immediately expose you to the risk of sunburn, erythema, produce an ineffective and short-lasting tan.

It is photo-aging, a destructive phenomenon that irremediably and prematurely ages the skin and considerably increases the risk of developing serious diseases.

Tips for a healthy tan

First exhibitions

my advice is to start exposing yourself to the sun before reaching the sea, to better control the exposure time which must not exceed three quarters of an hour a day , and can be progressively increased.

Exhibitions hours

It seems like a trivial advice, but often we do not give too much weight to this wrong behavior, exposing yourself during the hottest hours significantly facilitates burns and rashes , so it is better to avoid the hours between 12 and 16, especially during the first exposures. in the sun.


To avoid sunburn and maintain healthy skin, sunscreen should always be applied, repeating the application several times a day , especially after a refreshing dip. With normal skin perspiration, the sun protection tends to decrease, and it is necessary to apply the cream again after a few hours. During the bath it is the water that removes the protective veil, while when we go back under the umbrella and dry the contact with the towel eliminates any residue, It’s easy to see how forgetting to reapply sunscreen is a very serious mistake in this case

The correct protection

Each skin requires ad hoc protection. Lighter skins need high protection factors , even with spf 30, while naturally darker skins can progressively go down to spf 6 factors. 

The popular belief that high protection factors reduce tanning intensity is false. SPF 30 protection factors mean that it takes longer to reach the same intensity of tan, but with the enormous advantage of being able to count on a healthier and longer lasting tan.

Hair and hats

Even our beloved hair suffer from wild exposure to sunlight , it is always good to protect them with hats and use specific supplements to strengthen them.

Dry off

It seems trivial but lying in the sun without drying yourself after a dip favors sunburn. The effect of the droplets on our body amplifies the power of the sun’s rays and inhibits the protective factors of the creams.


Dehydration is the greatest danger, which negatively affects tanning and the natural protective mechanisms of the skin. I talked about it in this article

Perfect tan, the importance of hydration

The benefits of the sun

Let’s start from an assumption, the sun is life, if the sun were to go out there would be no form of life on Earth, the sun also has many beneficial effects on our body:

  • Improve your mood
  • It’s good for the bone system
  • Improve the physique

How to maintain a tan

I’ll tell you a secret, to have a screaming tan and maintain it over time we must rely on water, it is a fundamental element that guarantees the hydration of the body and skin but also intervenes on the tan as an external element . Drinking a lot of water guarantees the hydration of our body, and preferring the shower to the bathroom means that the tan lasts longer, in fact the prolonged contact with the skin tends to flake it causing the loss of the color gained with so much effort and commitment . The final touch to guarantee a lasting tan is the use of the after sun cream that will give the skin the right hydration, preparing it for the next day.
