One of the most important things to remember about sun tanning is to not get a sun burn. It is counter productive to your goals, it hurts, and it can lead to serious complications later. Complications include skin cancer and premature aging of the skin. Getting a burn will undo the effect you are trying to get from sun tanning.
Sun tanning should be spread out over several days. Spend only fifteen minutes the first day and increase it up to no more than two hours. The sun is its hottest between 10 AM and 3 PM. So try to no be out during that time or at least stay out for only short periods. If weather does not permit it, then try a sun lamp or sun tanning spa.[I:http://cosmoread.com/wp-content/uploads/HaywoodHunter1.jpg]
You can get your tan to last longer by exfoliating the dead skin cells before applying your sun tanning lotion. When outside, always reapply the sun tanning products after being in the water, toweling off, or exercising. When you come back in, shower immediately to remove the sun tanning lotion then use a moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated and soft.
Another important thing to remember is to use sun tanning lotions that are appropriate for your skin type. Always use a product with at least fifteen SPF. Apply your sun tanning lotions at least thirty minutes before going outside in order for it to absorb properly into the skin. Also, after being in the water or exercising, apply more lotion to keep your skin protected and moist.
The eye lids, lips, and bottom of the feet are often overlooked while sun tanning. Remember these delicate areas and either protect them with a higher number SPF or cover them completely. The soles of your feet are probably not where you want a tan but they will hurt immensely if they get a sun burn. Follow these few simple tips and have a safe and beautiful sun tanning experience.
