Even and natural tan: how to get it?
Summer… Sun, beach, pool, and terraces. Do you also feel instantly in a better mood and have a craving for a day at the beach? Everything you need to know for a long-lasting, beautiful, healthy, even, and natural tan is in this post!
Let’s start right at the beginning. Anyone who thinks that for a healthy and beautiful tan it is necessary to be out in the sun during the hottest hours is mistaken. In fact, the negative outcomes of prolonged exposure far outweigh the positive ones. But, if exposure and the use of sunscreen have not been sufficient for the desired results, what should I do?
Taking care of your skin should be a constant concern, however it is necessary to understand that during summer there are special measures you must take into account in order to obtain the much desired golden and uniform tan.
First Sunny Days
As the first sunny days of the year begin, you should start incorporating an anti-spot serum and sunscreen into your skincare routine. You can go for Caudalie’s fantastic Vinoperfect radiance serum. We absolutely adore Filorga UV-Bronze Face SPF50 +. This melting sun cream besides giving high protection, moisturizes and prevents premature aging of the skin.
In addition, although it is a routine to adopt during all seasons of the year, we remind you of the importance of exfoliating your skin. You should do it once or twice a week. This step is essential for those who want an even tan. Why? The action of exfoliating removes dead cells that throughout the day are formed on our skin. This allows the surface to become clean and toned and more prone to retain the sun’s melanin.
Body Care Tips
15 days before going to the beach
Now is the perfect time to prepare your skin for a faster, more intense and longer lasting tan. We recommend the use of Heliocare oral daily protection and tan enhancer capsules 15 days before starting the beach. The capsules should be taken up to 15 days after the end of sun exposure.
During the beach
Here, the steps are similar to those for the face. First start by exfoliating your body. And no, your tan will not be compromised by performing this action weekly. As said above, this ritual will only eliminate dead cells. As the melanin present in the skin cells, the ones responsible for the tan tone, is not affected by exfoliants, the result is nothing more than an even and healthy tan. For this purpose we recommend Collistar Anti-Age Talasso-Scrub. Its luxurious fresh citrus scent from orange blossom and Sicilian citrus makes it great for this season.
Next is the order of the day: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. And for faster results, you can do it with a sun enhancer. Collistar Supertanning Concentrated Unguent is a rich cream for those who want a tropical tan. It will protect your skin from the dryness of the sea and the sun while keeping it smooth.If you prefer a spray-on for a faster application you can switch to Collistar Supertanning Water Moisturizing Anti-Salt which refreshes and soothes. Please note that this products don´t contain any sunscreen.
So then all that’s left is to apply the sunscreen. Choose the one that is most comfortable for you. We use Caudalie Milky Sun Spray SPF50 for a natural, luminous and long-lasting tan that keeps our skin youthful.
After sun exposure it is time to ensure good hydration in order to guarantee longer lasting tan.
Tan prolonging sun creams are great friends when it comes to moisturizing, nourishing and soothing. Caudalie tan prolonging after-sun lotion may be just what your skin needs. Your tan is prolonged for a longer period of time and becomes brighter and more even.
I have sensitive and/or reactive skin to sun. Now what do I do to get an even and natural tan?
We have not forgotten about you! Besides being more sensitive to sun exposure you will also face an extra struggle when it comes to achieving the desired results. Are we right?
If this is your case, follow the steps described above, except for the fist one. You must do a specific preparation for your skin type to make it more receptive to UVB rays. For this reason choose Heliocare ultra-d oral supplement that has been formulated for additional protection against sun exposure. Often the cause of allergic reactions and fotoaging of the skin.Such preparation should be done 15 days before starting sun exposure and 15 days after it ends. Here is the secret that will make you get the tan you have always wanted!
