Nothing beats a relaxing day by the pool or at the beach, sitting under the sun’s warm rays. Let’s face it though – too much UV exposure can lead to wrinkles, sunspots and serious damage including sunburns and even skin cancer. How do we mitigate this dilemma knowing that most of us love how we look after a tan? A combination of lotions, sunscreens and tanning oils is key for optimal protection so that you can still have fun in the sun.
The professionals have spoken: wear sunscreen all day, every day. Not only does a good SPF keep your skin looking more youthful, a strong SPF like this one from Kolgara acts as a second skin-like protective barrier against any harsh rays. Apply all over the body as the last step of your morning skincare routine, making sure to reapply every two hours.
Glowy bronzed skin is a trend we love and hope to never see leave. When feeling a little more dull or paler than usual, opt for a tinted body lotion with a little shimmer in it instead of baking under the sun. This way, you avoid any uncomfortable sunburns or unsightly spots and still achieve a beautiful bronzed sun-kissed complexion.
This Natural Bronzing Lotion from Just Pure has SPF and a more natural bronzed matte finish that keeps the skin moisturised, protected and radiant. Slather on 20 minutes before sun exposure and get ready to meet your new tanned self.
For those who simply must kick back and bask in the sun, we highly suggest applying Luna’s Sun Tan Oil with SPF 15 every two hours. Infused with carrot oil pigment, a beautiful deep tan is achievable while also taking care of your skin.
Some of us must manage painful sunburns after a long hot day and do not use the appropriate methods to do so. Essentials’ Sunblock Aloe Vera Soothing Gel will soothe sunburns better than any yogurt, and prevent any further sun damage to your skin.
