As beach weather gets closer and closer everyone wants a beautiful summer glow. However, without proper preparation, an attempt for a beach tan can quickly turn into a sunburn. Here are a few things to remember that will help you get that bronze summer tan.

Stay Hydrated

One of the most important factors to have a lasting tan is hydration. Sweating under the sun and swimming in salty water can dehydrate your skin. While dehydrated you may feel lightheaded and nauseous.

Make sure to drink water before, during, and after your tanning session. As well, moisturizing your body with lotion also helps it stay hydrated in order to achieve that smooth Brazilian glow.

SPF

SPF ( Sun Protection Factor ) absorbs a percentage of harmful sun rays before it reaches your body. Applying sunscreen with an SPF factor of 30 allows you to get that glow whilst still protecting your skin from redness and sunburn.

Tanning Oil

Tanning Oils attract sun rays to your skin and intensify them in order to speed up the tanning process, and the production of melanin which gives your skin a darker shade. It is recommended to use tanning oil at least 10 minutes after putting on your sunscreen.

Timing

The best timing for a quick tan is when the sun rays are most intense which is between 10 AM and 4 PM. However, if you are prone to sunburn or have sensitive skin we recommend going from 8 AM - 11 AM

Food

It may sound far-fetched but the food you eat really does affect your tan! Eating foods with beta-carotene increases your melanin production, an example of these foods are carrots, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe.
