No comments

A super tan does not only include sun protection, which is essential as I always repeat, but becomes even more beautiful and lasting thanks to the after sun cream . With this little big trick you will give so much relief to your skin that it will thank you with a screaming tan.

The after sun cream is a product that must not be missing in your holiday kit , it is the secret that allows you to get a tan never seen before, thanks to the benefits it brings to the skin.

I’m Mrs Adorable and I want to give you some simple tips to get the most out of after sun cream.

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.

What benefits does it brings?

Thanks to its composition it brings freshness and soothes redness, keeps the skin soft, prevents cracking and flaking, its natural hydration factor restores skin hydration thanks to its ability to retain liquids. 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.

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:

PHOTOTYPE 1

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

PHOTOTYPE 2

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

PHOTOTYPE 3

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

PHOTOTYPE 4

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

PHOTOTYPE 5

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

PHOTOTYPE 6

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.

Suncreams in the mountains protection at high altitudes

No comments

An excursion in the mountains, a path that leads to high altitude in the clouds where the air is more crisp, a backpack on his shoulder, the dog running up and down the path making our way 10 times, a wonderful day with some cloud that basically does not bother, on the contrary it makes the summer temperature even more pleasant.

What a sight, but here in the evening, face and shoulders burn with a conspicuous sign of the shoulder straps of the backpack and the temples of the sunglasses that make the appearance vaguely funny

Yes, you got sunburned!

The sun in the mountains causes damage to the skin in the short and long term just like the sun at the sea, indeed more! In fact, you must know that as you go up to high altitude the natural protection of the atmosphere decreases and the rays become more intense by 10/12% every thousand meters, it is an impressive figure, but even more impressive is the power of the sun’s rays if the excursion ends at foot of a glacier, ice and snow reflect the rays, increasing the intensity by 80%.

THE MOUNTAIN CAUSES DAMAGE

Skin exposed to the sun tends to protect itself, this action is highlighted by the change in color due to melanin, unfortunately, however, the natural protection mechanism alone is not enough to create an effective shield. Thanks to the fact that culture, habit or laziness is almost never associated with the need to protect the skin in the mountains, we are faced with annoying burns, erythema and in the most serious cases, when even the eyes are not adequately protected, even temporary blindness.

Attention, the mountains in summer are simply wonderful, the climate, even in August is much more bearable than at sea, at high altitude it is even pleasant, a walk in the mountains, in the midst of nature, offers breathtaking views and allows you to detoxify from stress of the city, but it is necessary to protect yourself adequately to fully enjoy a corner of paradise.

THE DAMAGE OF THE SUN

You immediately notice that you have been burned, the sensation is annoying and in the worst cases you feel real pain, the skin becomes so sensitive that it cannot even be touched, but there is damage caused by exposure to the sun without protection that is they present after years, such as skin photoaging up to, in the most extreme cases, even tumors.

The natural defenses that our body puts in place are not sufficient to protect the skin and eyes and need help, especially in the mountains where the intensity of the sun’s rays is much stronger than at sea..

PROTECTIVE SUNCREAM IN THE MOUNTAINS, WHICH TO USE?

We have seen that it is necessary to protect yourself during our outdoor activities in the mountains by using sunscreen. But which? In the mountains, given the lower protection of the atmosphere, it is necessary to rely on high protection factors, in addition to the filter, a high quality composition of the cream is essential to keep the skin hydrated. An excellent level of hydration is the signal that the skin is not suffering from sun exposure, on the contrary, when it is burned the sensation is dry and the skin seems to “pull” in an annoying way.

HYALURONIC ACID, CAN IT HELP?

An excellent level of skin hydration indicates the integrity of the skin barrier. The most suitable products, dedicated to the face and neck, are enriched with a special mixture of hyaluronic acid molecules of different molecular weight. This technology is specially designed to counteract the formation of wrinkles and other signs of skin aging.

Hyaluronic acid is famous for its smoothing properties that give the skin brightness and beauty, but few know that it is also an excellent help to keep the skin hydrated and increase, used together with an excellent sunscreen, the behavior of exposed skin in the sun. It is possible to find hyaluronic acid in cosmetics specially designed to make the skin toned and radiant, the most advanced contain different molecular weights to counteract the formation of wrinkles and the signs of skin aging caused by the sun. 

IS IT USEFULL TO INTEGRATE TO PREPARE THE SKIN IN THE SUN?

Integration is essential to give our body the right nutrients and prepare the skin for sun exposure, whether it’s a beach or mountain holiday. Supplements containing, for example, beta-carotene or Coenzyme Q10 which counteract skin aging, fighting free radicals and the consequences of exposure to sunlight, are excellent. Thanks to their action they keep skin always young by fighting the signs caused by the sun.

WHEN AND HOW TO PUT THE PROTECTIVE SUNCREAM

The sunscreen should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow the composition to act and better protect the skin, the application should then be repeated every 3-4 hours to keep the effectiveness of the filters contained in the cream high. In the mountains it is necessary to pay close attention to the most exposed areas of the body such as the scalp, in the case of very short hair, neck, ears and shoulders. Generally it is good practice to apply the protection on all areas exposed directly to the sun.

A good pair of mirrored glasses or glasses with high UV protection, clothing and boots suitable for the route complete the kit for a pleasant and safe excursion.

  1. ° secret : use the right sunscreen
  2. ° secret: avoid the hottest hours
  3. ° secret: take care of your skin after a day at the beach
  4. ° secret: eat suntan friendly foods
  5. ° secret: integrate the correct nutrients

Under the sun we can’t wait to get a tan, in fact, the tan enhances the beauty, gives a more beautiful appearance, the skin becomes brighter and gives up that dull color due to the hectic life and the winter just past. Tanning is synonymous with the sea, holidays, happiness and relaxation, then if we tan properly, if the tan is golden, bright and uniform, happiness is double. Is it difficult to get it? Absolutely not, in fact it is simpler than one might think. It is enough to put into practice a few small actions within everyone’s reach to succeed in the business.

Stop wasting time, here are the 5 tips for a golden and lasting tan.

1 USE THE RIGHT SUNSCREEN

With sunscreen you get less tanned. You have just read one of the most wrong beliefs ever, it is not just a question of protection and health, it is also a question of aesthetics, sunscreen is essential to protect us from UV rays, but it is also essential to have an even tan that lasts in time.

It is very important to choose the correct degree of protection based on various factors ranging from the color of our skin, the phototype, to the degree of tanning, to how we experience exposure to the sun. There are many solutions on the market but the advice is to avoid products from the supermarket shelf and focus on quality products to guarantee the protection and well-being of the skin.

2 AVOID THE HOTTEST HOURS

How beautiful the sea and the sun that warms the skin, all fantastic, but especially at the beginning of the holiday we avoid long exposures, and we avoid the hottest hours, the central ones of the day with the most intense sun rays. It is a good idea to apply the sunscreen several times during the day and use it even if you stay under an umbrella or on cloudy days. In these conditions the sun’s rays penetrate equally and without protection there would be a very annoying, and in some cases dangerous, sunburn that ruins the holiday. Remember to apply sunscreen even after a bath.

3 TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN AFTER A DAY AT THE BEACH

The importance of taking care of the skin during sun exposure is undoubted, but it would be a serious mistake to forget about the aftermath! Sun, salt, sand, put our skin under stress, and at the end of the day at the beach, after a refreshing shower, it is essential to hydrate it with a quality after-sun cream.

Treat yourself to moments of relaxation and well-being with a delicate refreshing and rehydrating massage while mentally reliving the beautiful moments of the day just passed. The right rehydration will prepare the skin for the next day and will allow you to have a long lasting golden tan.

4 EAT SUNTAN FRIENDLY FOODS

Protection ok, like sunbathing ok, taking care of the skin ok, but there is another fundamental element to prepare the skin for a TOP tan and this time it is not external factors that determine a great tan, but internal factors. We are talking about nutrition, in fact there are fruits and vegetables that can help you in the mission “Perfect tan”. Consume yellow, red and orange fruits and vegetables and you will prepare yourself for a super bright and lasting tan. We talk about it here in the article “The perfect tan, what to eat

5 INTEGRATE THE CORRECT NUTRIENTS

The magic word is beta carotene, it is a substance that you find in fruit and vegetables but it is not only in the well-known carrot, you can also find it in apricots, pumpkins, oranges and many other foods. So is it enough to eat the right foods to get the right amount? Unfortunately this is not the case as fruit and vegetables are grown with intensive methods that deplete the earth and the nutrients they should contain. For this reason, integrating is the only effective solution possible. A good quality supplement will help to take the correct amount of beta carotene to prepare the skin for a super top tan.
