The importance of dietary supplements for the well-being of the body

No comments

In recent years, more and more people are becoming aware of the importance of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle to maintain their well-being. However, sometimes it can be difficult to get all the nutrients our bodies need through the diet only. In these cases, dietary supplements can prove to be a valuable ally in ensuring that our bodies get what they need. In this article, we will explore the importance of dietary supplements for the well-being of the body.

Food supplements: a solution for our wellness

Dietary supplements are products containing one or more nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs or other compounds, that can be taken to enhance the nutritional intake of the diet. Despite efforts to follow a healthy diet, there are situations when it can be difficult to get all the nutrients needed from diet alone.

Helping the energy creation process

Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble molecule found naturally within the mitochondria, intracellular organelles crucial for energy metabolism. This compound is particularly abundant in the most active organs that need more chemical energy production such as the heart, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. As we get older, the concentration of the coenzyme declines physiologically. Taking dietary supplements containing Coenzyme Q10, such as Cotidie, can help make up for this deficiency.

Accompanying dietary regimens aimed at weight loss

Coconut oil supplements, such as Coconut, are an important source of medium-chain fatty acids, which act as hunger suppressants bringing a satiating effect. They therefore prove useful in maintaining and decreasing body weight and provide a supportive action on metabolic rate, as well as promoting skin trophism.

Helping to grow and strengthen nails and hair

Briller is a supplement that contains cystine, an essential amino acid for the formation of keratin (the main component of hair and nails), omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids derived from borage oil and fish oil. This supplement also contains a mix of vitamins and minerals that have important antioxidant and beneficial effects on the scalp, thereby stimulating hair and nail growth.

Defending against the occurrence of adverse effects and diseases

Supplements containing Beta Carotene, a pigment found in many vegetables such as carrot and pumpkin, such as Soleil, are one of the most important sources of Vitamin A (Retinol), which is essential for maintaining healthy vision, skin and bone development. Vitamin A also possesses immune-modulating properties that help strengthen our immune system. On the other hand, taking supplements containing antioxidants such as vitamin C and selenium, compounds found within Sublime, can help protect the body from the damage of free radicals, the excessive production of which can have several harmful effects on our bodies; in fact, they can lead to premature aging of cells and tissues or even cardiovascular disorders.

Conclusion

In conclusion, dietary supplements can play a significant role in improving the well-being of the body. However, it is important to stress that supplements should never replace a balanced diet. Instead, they should be used as a complement to ensure that our bodies receive all the nutrients they need. Ultimately, the combination of balanced diet, regular exercise, and proper use of dietary supplements can work together to promote the overall well-being of the body.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. I talked about it here:

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.

Sunscreen

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.

Hydrate

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
  • Relax your muscles
  • Speeds up the healing of contractures

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.

The risks of the sun

The sun is synonymous with summer, holidays, relaxation, warm and pleasant but if taken lightly it can prove to be an enemy of the skin and health. Unprotected exposure can cause:

  • Sunburn
  • Premature aging of the skin
  • Damage to sight
  • Appareance of serius diseases
  • Weakenin of the hair

Solar radiation causes the proliferation of free radicals which have the ability to damage cellular functions causing loss of elasticity, wrinkles and diseases.

That’s why it’s essential to always use sunscreen and tan with awareness.

Perfect tan, the importance of hydration

No comments

Summer arrives anticipated by so much heat and sun. The Pursuit of the Perfect Tan might be the title of a movie, it’s actually what we women want during the summer.

Sunbathing has many beneficial effects on our body , it promotes the production of vitamin D, a panacea for bones and the immune system, as well as obviously giving us the much desired tan. However, it is good to be very careful when exposed to sunlight, as without adequate skin and body preparation, and without sunscreen, we can encounter very serious problems .

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

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

(Loren Eiseley)

Our body is mostly made up of water. Infants have a water percentage of 75% of the total body mass, in adults it is about 65%. This is why good hydration is essential for our well-being . Follow me I’m about to explain how good hydration improves tan. I’m Mrs Adorable and I love giving you tips on wellness and tanning .

THE MELANIN IS NOT ENOUGH

Imagine being on vacation, by the sea, by the lake or in the mountains and enjoying a splendid sunny day outdoors, what happens is that the body exposed to the sun reacts by activating the melanin and through a natural process colors the skin, creating a shield to protect her. But melanin alone is not enough, the natural protection mechanism does not filter UV rays , it is therefore 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 do to improve your tan is to make your skin more beautiful, you can hydrate yourself . A hydrated skin increases protection, as the intake of liquids, especially during the summer, prevents dehydration of the tissues , the skin regenerates more easily by stimulating the activation of the natural protection of our body against the sun’s rays.

HYDRATION VS SUN

During the summer, due to the heat and the sun, our body increases the consumption of liquids , at the same time exposure to the sun often causes annoying burns that can make the holiday less pleasant. If you do not hydrate properly the outermost layers of the dermis dry out, losing their natural elasticity and the ability to retain water, dehydration results in less protection and a higher risk of sunburn. It is easy to understand the importance of good hydration, especially when you decide to sunbathe, and it is for this reason that it is very important to listen to your body, in fact, it is he who sends us so many signals to show you that it is necessary to integrate liquids. When there is a beautiful day, perhaps with a little wind, it is very easy to lose large quantities of liquids without noticing, but interpreting some signals promptly allows you to quickly run for cover . Slight dizziness, a feeling of thirst, fatigue and intestinal irregularities are eloquent alarm bells that indicate that we are in reserve of water.

MOISTURIZING THE SKIN

Have you seen how important it is to hydrate properly? Do you know that we can act directly on the skin ? A good after-sun cream for example is excellent for maintaining the right degree of hydration of the skin and preparing it for the next day but there is a little secret that I am about to reveal to you and that almost no one knows, on the other hand I am Mrs Adorable!

Do you know that hyaluronic acid, which we all know for its aesthetic effects, is actually a friend of suntan ?

Hyaluronic acid holds liquids right where it is needed, in the different layers of the skin, plumping it and making it more hydrated, in this way we prepare it to receive the sun’s rays, improving resistance to sunburn.

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

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

Improve your tan with supplements

No comments

Tan is beatiful isn’t it, it is synonymous with relaxation, warmth, summer and joy , tanning makes us more beautiful and improves our mood, it will be for these and many other reasons that we work hard to get it bright and golden. What if there was a totally natural help to make it even more beautiful?

I’m Mrs Adorable and i love giving advice on wellness, sun and tun.

The help is there and it is absolutely natural, as you may have guessed from the title I’m talking about integration . Attention any “pro tanning” supplement does not replace sunscreen, the supplements do not have filters that can shield UV rays.

WHICH SUPPLEMENTS TO CHOOSE

In addition to the very famous beta carotene , there are many other supplements that can be of great help both to tanning and to the skin in general . All antioxidants, for example, are excellent for counteracting free radicals, skin aging and therefore have the effect of improving the skin and consequently the tan.

Coenzyme Q10 hinders the formation of wrinkles and is also useful for preventing sunburn.
The beta carotene contained in many foods, I talk about it here

What are foods rich in beta carotene?

it has the property of coloring the skin, settles and makes it darker and more golden, giving a unique color that, combined with the natural tan of the sun, produces a unique effect giving us a screaming tan. As you can see, the combined use of supplements and sun protection allows you to significantly improve your tan and at the same time enjoy the beneficial effects of the sun .

WHEN TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS

Tanning supplements and sunscreens are excellent allies to get all the benefits of sun exposure .

You know that a correct use of integration and protection improves the color of the tan, increases its intensity, duration and counteracts annoying irritation and skin aging.

The supplements for tanning must be taken a few months before sun exposure , and it is essential to continue throughout the period of exposure to the sun. For the modalities it is good to rely on the specific indications of the supplement, but generally they should be taken with a lot of water.

SUGGESTIONS ON USING SUPPLEMENTS

Supplementation does not replace nutrition , and it is therefore advisable to have a healthy diet and to combine a diet rich in products containing substances useful for sunbathing such as carrots, melon, apricots and tomatoes.

Hydration is also essential, both to take supplements correctly and as a good habit for a healthy body and hydrated skin.

In conclusion, to answer a question they often ask me:

 “Do tanning supplements work?

I answer:

ABSOLUTELY YES

I can tell you with certainty that you will have less sunburn, less rashes and certainly a more golden and even tan, as well as a healthy and protected skin.

Trying is believing. By Mrs Adorable.

How to get a quick tan

No comments

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

Ludwig Feuerbach

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:

What are foods rich in beta carotene?

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.

Perfect tan, when to start and how to do it

No comments

It is time to think about holidays, many may have already booked, others have yet to think about it, who will choose beach holidays in Italy and, finally, who abroad.

There are those who plan and pack their bags weeks in advance and there are those who throw in everything they need at the last minute and go. No matter you are super organized or more impulsive, there is one thing that always applies, and it is the preparation of our body for the perfect tan, to fully enjoy the benefits of the sun without sunburn, rashes and blemishes that would make the summer much less special.

Body preparation is essential, and I thought I’d give you some tips to get the perfect tan. Often, once you arrive at the resort, the only “pro tanning” operation is to spread the cream under the umbrella, and very often the protection is bought at the newsstand found before arriving at the beach.

But if we really want to aim for the TOP tan we have to prepare ourselves months in advance. Tanning is the consequence of a well-prepared body and skin ready to welcome all the benefits of the sun.

Nutrients

To be at the top, our body needs the nutrients assimilated at the right times, some of these implement physical processes capable of increasing the protection of the skin in the sun. The best time to prepare the skin is spring, dedicating the right care to it will give us brightness and tone in the summer. There are several supplements that can help our skin but those with beta carotene are the best for aiming for a super tan. I mark an article where I tell you about it:

Beta carotene: an allay for skin protection in summer

Beta carotene is essentially an excellent antioxidant, it fights free radicals and gives the skin a dark and golden color, but it needs time to “work”, the advice is to take it at least 3/4 months before the holiday .

Beta carotene is also present in many types of fruit and vegetables that should be taken all year round to contribute to a healthy lifestyle. In the article in our magazine, I will reveal which foods are most present in:

What are the foods rich in beta carotene?

It will surprise you to know that the carrots is just one of the many vegetables that contain it.

Protection

Light skin, olive skin or already tanned skin make no difference, when we sunbathe we must protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays which cause real disasters in the deeper layers of the skin, causing blemishes and skin aging up to degenerate into even serious diseases .

Even sunscreen, to be effective, needs its time, it must not be spread on the bed but a few hours before, for example we recommend spreading the cream before having breakfast, in this way the protection is absorbed correctly.

The application of the protection must be repeated throughout the day, to restore the protective veil and always keep it at maximum effectiveness.

Exposure

The temptation when we are at the beach is to sunbathe as much as possible, but I’m Mrs Adorable and I have to give you the right advice! Avoid exposing yourself from 11 to 15 because in these hours the sun’s rays are very strong and the solar radiation really intense.

If the skin is excessively stressed by the action of the sun, unsightly sun spots may appear, as well as accelerating skin aging.
By following these simple tips you will notice a marked improvement in your tan, it will not only be more intense and golden but it will last much longer once you have returned from vacation. Word of Mrs Adorable.

Beta carotene: an ally for skin protection in summer

No comments

Summer is coming, and with it the desire for the sun and being outdoors, to feel the warmth on the skin, in short, a desire for energy, well-being and relaxation.

The kiss had the taste of summer

Tasted like open air.

Of skin warmed by sun.

(Georges Simenon)

LSummer is the sun, it is tanning but it is also the concrete and real risk of causing damage to our skin, to limit the risk we have a formidable ally: BETA CAROTENE.

I don’t want to bore you with unnecessary big words and scientific terms that you can find everywhere on the net, and I won’t tell you about carotenoids or other terms that look like alien peoples, I’m Mrs Adorable and so I’ll get you straight to the point.
Beta carotene is great for our body but I will tell you this later, if you are here it is because you are interested in the sun, holidays and skin health, as well as obviously having the best tan on the planet.

I have to give you three small disappointments right away but let’s not despair:

  • Beta carotene does not involve melanin and therefore is not directly responsible for tanning
  • Beta carotene does not prevent sunburn
  • Beta carotene does not filter the UV rays responsible for photoaging of the skin and serious diseases

But I wrote a title that seems to enhance the qualities of beta carotene and then here are three statements that say exactly the opposite! In reality it is not quite so, or rather it is but it is not so, ok let’s continue to eliminate any doubts.

BETA CAROTENE DOES NOT TAN

Let’s start with the first statement, which is absolutely true, but when beta carotene is taken through food or supplementation, it is deposited in the skin, giving it a darker and more golden color. The sun and beta carotene combo therefore makes the skin stand out and shine with a breathtaking tan.

BETA CAROTENE DOES NOT PREVENT SUNBURNS

It is true, beta carotene does not prevent sunburn, but it gives the skin an appearance similar to that of a tan and actually reduces its sensitivity. I said that it reduces sensitivity but it does not make us Wonder Woman’s alter egos, so it is essential to always protect your skin with a good sunscreen.

BETA CAROTENE DOES NOT PROTECT FROM THE SUN

Beta carotene cannot replace a good sunscreen that contains filters to shield the UV rays responsible for aging, but it is an excellent antioxidant as it counteracts the onset of free radicals and oxidative stress. It is also an important ally of sight that allows you to improve it, and is finally a panacea for strengthening the immune system.

BETA CAROTENE HOW TO TAKE IT

As you can see, beta carotene for us women (actually also for husbands, boyfriends, fathers, children) is very important and you can find it in different foods such as carrots, but also peppers, tomatoes, apricots, melon, broccoli and many other vegetables they are really rich, I’ll tell you about it here:

What are foods rich in beta carotene?

If you are unable to eat the right amount of fruit and vegetables every day, it is very useful, if not essential, to rely on excellent supplements, avoiding those from the supermarket and paying attention to the percentages of the active ingredient. Generally, those found on supermarket shelves are products that focus more on quantity than quality. Relying instead on specialized companies that can guarantee high quality standards is certainly the right way to bring well-being to our body.

You will already have guessed that beta carotene is important all year round but especially in summer, my advice is to take it regularly, starting immediately, in this way you will prepare your skin and body for summer.

Summer: the hairs are lighter.

The skin is more darker.

The water is more warm.

The drinks are more cold.

The music is louder.

The night become longer.

The life become better.
