How to Keep Your Summer Glow

supple skinGetting the summer glow is easy. You can either go for sunbathing, indoor tanning or self tanning. Whichever method you’re going for, it can be hard or difficult to get tanned skin. If you’re going for the sunbathing and indoor tanning route, you can easily get it by just exposing your skin to the UV rays. If you aren’t keen on soaking in a lot of UV radiation, you can opt for self tanners. Self tanners are an applied means to getting tanned skin.
Whichever option you choose to take, tanning can be tedious to take care of. If you want to keep your summer glow as long as possible, here are some ways to doing so:
– Avoid drying your skin. You can make use of moisturizers or creams to keep your skin hydrated. While you can pluck any product off the shelf, it’s important to check the labels. Any skin care product that contains retinol can burn off your self tan.
– Don’t go for any pools or any beaches for the meantime. Sea water is an easy ticket to dry skin while pools contain chlorine which have bleaching properties. Taking a quick dip is no problem but if you consistently swim or visit the pool, it can easily lighten your skin tone. This can also lead to uneven skin tone which can ruin your complexion.
– Despite having a tan, it’s still a good idea to put on some sunscreen. Sunscreen is the most effective way to keeping your skin well. Try to put on some sunscreen before heading out, which would be at least thirty minutes ahead. Also, remember that sunscreen can last between two-three hours thus make sure to re-apply when needed.
– Eat food that can help keep your summer glow. Foods rich in carotenoid such as carrots are an ideal example.
