How do you do that?
1. Scrub face and body with a mild scrub so that dead skin cells do not get in the way of the tanning process. Do this a few days before you go on vacation. Use a product that stimulates the tanning process, such as Magic Mousse à Bronzer from Payot . You can often start a month in advance with a pretan product. You also have less chance of sun allergy when using such a product.
2. When sunbathing, it is advisable to protect yourself well. The sun is our friend and foe. We need the sun (or UV radiation) for the production of Vitamin D. Unfortunately, too much sun is harmful, the skin can burn and the aging process is slowed down.
stimulated. Which factor is suitable for your holiday depends on a number of factors.
A. How sensitive is your skin to the sun, do you burn quickly or not.
B. Where are you going, the closer to the equator the stronger the radiation, but you also have to be careful in the mountains.
My advice: If your skin is sensitive and you are going on a real sun holiday, start with an SPF 50. If your skin is more used to the sun or burns less quickly, then SPF 30 will suffice. Lower factors only with real tanned skins and skins that do not burn easily and always take into account the place you are going and what you plan to do on vacation. If you go swimming or exercising a lot, take a water resistant product.
3. And then of course we have the aftercare. Immediately after sunbathing, it is advisable to use an aftersun such as, for example, Refreshing Gelée Coco from Payot. An after sun has a cooling and caring effect, unlike a body cream, for example, which can close the skin so that it cannot lose its heat. A few days after your holiday, it is advisable to exfoliate the skin to preserve the beautiful brown tint. UV rays make the skin thicker as a natural protection and the complexion becomes duller. You can prevent this by exfoliating regularly. This applies to both the body and the face.
With all these tips, your skin will shine this summer. And with beautiful brown legs… What could be more fun than adorning your ankles with an anklet… :). View all anklets here.
