Sunbathing Tips Without Hitting the Beach

pexels-photo-300940 (1)When it comes to sunbathing, most individuals find their way along the beach. It’s not surprising as most sunbathing is done by the beach. While it’s not the only possible place to do this activity, it’s one of the most common activities along the shoreline. If you’re someone who can’t drive their way to the beach but badly want some sunbathing to be done, not to worry. There are various places to do your share of sunbathing provided you follow these tips to make the most of that experience:

  • Choose a specific spot with no coverage. This means you’re going to need an area where trees or even buildings don’t get in the way. Having trees is going to cause shadows which in turn give you an uneven tan. Not only that but you’ll have to spend more time under the sun since you’re not giving your skin an equal amount of sun to get its share of tan.
  • Make use of tanning oils, it’s best to go natural on this one. Tanning oils speed up the process of tanning your skin thus makes less time being under the sun. If you’re not sure of what tanning oil to use, you can rely on the simple olive oil and coconut oils. While these oils help give your skin the tan it needs, there’s still the added bonus of keeping your skin nourished while you lay under the sun.
  • Time is essential to sunbathing. Time determines how long you’re going to stay under the sun as well as what time you should be tanning. Normally, most individuals choose to tan during the afternoon where the sun is more consistent. This also means they have a definite time frame since lunch hours are too hazardous and you can’t really tan at night.

Benefits of Doing Self Tanning Gradually

Getting your tan can be as easy as one, two and three. However, with the recent rise of skin cancer through the means of sunbathing or being constantly exposed to UV rays from tanning salons, it can be quite difficult to achieve the perfect tan. Self tanning is not only a complex approach to tan but results can vary if you’re not consistent. To rectify this mishap, you can gradually apply your self tanner.

Compared to the normal application of a self tanner, gradual application not only gives you the opportunity to get the best results. By putting your tan little by little, you can determine just how saturated your bronze tone is or how dark you want to be. This is especially important for those with fair to pale skin since you’re working on a light palette.

You can also commit to self tanning during your free time. Since we don’t have an entire day to spare for self tanning, a few hours to apply the tanning lotion and to let it dry is all you need. You can even set a schedule to when you want to put your lotion since you only need a smaller amount of time.

Applying gradually also gives your skin a breather. Most self tanners that are ideal of gradual application do not have strong ingredients in them thus you can rest assured that you won’t be experiencing closed poor or engorged ones when you’re dabbing the tan onto yourself.

For self tanners that are dedicated for gradual application, these tanning lotions have a higher value of nutrients compared to the normal ones. Due to the longer commitment but less intense approach to getting a tan, gradual self tanning lotions are infused with moisturizers and various nutrients that help your skin. This means you’re also getting a good amount of pampering during each self tanning session.
