Before you go out in the sun

Peeling is the first thing you need to do, peeling of the whole body will prepare your body for the sun. If you love old recipes and tips, then your kitchen is the place where you will find everything you need. Body peeling will cleanse and refresh your skin, so you’ll make a great base for a dark complexion. Remember that a great sun exposure is very harmful, so be responsible and do it occasionally and in a way that will suit your skin.

Beta-carotene helps in darkening of the skin. How to achieve this? Eat fruits and vegetables that are rich in beta-carotene: carrot, cantaloupe, pear, spinach, apples… Also, beta-carotene helps create melanin, which is the main factor when it comes to tanning.


Skin type

Find out which skin type you have and depending on that choose which sunscreen you will be using. It is better to be safe than sorry. Wait for summer and when it arrives, make sure to take care of your skin. Never expose yourself to the sun at midday, to be more precise between 12am and 4pm, and never stay more than 15-20 minutes at a time.

Remember, a great tan doesn’t require daily sun exposure and tanning salons. Do it gradually and you will reach the desired result in no time.
