A beautiful tan is the pride of many. To get it in winter, you have to go to the solarium, and in summer it is enough to visit the beach. It will not be difficult to get a tan there, it will be more problematic to keep a tan for a long time. So, why does a tan obtained in the middle Russian latitudes remain for 2 or even 3 months, while the southern one is completely washed off after a maximum of 2 weeks and what methods are ideal so that the skin retains a beautiful chocolate shade for as long as possible? Now let’s try to figure it out.
But first, let’s figure out what a tan is and what it is for. From a medical point of view, under the influence of sunlight, melanin begins to be actively produced in the skin, which protects skin cells from destruction. And the more it stands out, the darker the skin becomes (just remember blacks who are constantly under the influence of ultraviolet radiation). Melanin contributes to the production of vitamin D3, which strengthens the immune system and the circulatory system. Therefore, it is necessary and useful to sunbathe. But it is important not to overdo it – excessive stay on the beach or in solariums leads to drying of the skin, and as a result of this – premature aging and the appearance of wrinkles.
Now let’s look at some tricks, following which you can get a beautiful even tan and keep it as long as possible.
After a vacation, for a while, exclude visiting baths and saunas, as high temperatures and excessive moisture make the skin paler. Give your preference to baths with the addition of natural oils or sea salt. This will help keep your tan longer.
Creams containing lemon, celandine, milk or cucumber should also be removed for a while. Instead, you can use tea leaves or coffee grounds. They will give the skin a beautiful shade of chocolate.
Include olive oil and fish in your diet, as the substances they contain will help maintain a dark skin tone.
Eat more vitamins, especially group B, which are found in vegetables and fruits (in particular carrots). This will not only preserve the resulting tan, but also remove the effects of exposure to large portions of ultraviolet radiation.
Visit the solarium, once every two weeks will be enough.
Try Auto Bronzes. These cosmetics will help you moisturize the skin, and the particles of gold included in the composition will make it more attractive.
