5 Tips for the Best Tan With or Without the Sun!

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Who DOESN’T love a sultry sun kissed glow? It sure beats a pasty complexion that screams out to the world ‘’give me some color, and give it to me fast!” It’s good to know there are some practical ways to get the gorgeous bronze tone you crave with or without the help of good old Mr. Soleil.


Here are 5 practical tips to get an amazing suntan the healthy way!



1. Consider what you put in your mouth
1. Consider what you put in your mouth
Your body has its own innate skin protection thanks to an antioxidant called lycopene, and this can be boosted by eating certain sun friendly foods. Think tomatoes, carrots, and citrus fruits for a super antioxidant punch. They can boost your sun protection by approximately 33%... in conjunction with your other sun protection efforts of course. And guess what? Rumor has it that caffeine can help decrease your risk of sun cancer, so grab a latte on your way to the beach!
2. Choose your sunscreen the smart way

Not all sunscreen products are created equal; if a product is way too cheap, you should be suspicious. And remember: don’t just depend on those 3 little letters SPF. You have to also pay attention to other relevant lingo such as broad spectrum, UVA, and UVB protection. Caring for your skin the smart way doesn’t mean you won’t get a suntan at all… but it will keep you safe and healthy and offer you a natural glow without getting burned.
3. Go for the latest in bronzers

Bronzers have come a very long way over the years. Long gone are those yucky orange versions that make you look like an orange mess! Modern bronzers are natural, light, even offer protection. And guess what? For the very first time, Guerlain Terracotta offers its iconic bronzing powder in a WATERPROOF version. So now you can apply it and even take a dunk in the water!
4. Take a break in the shade

Knowing when to step out of the sun and into the shade could be your ticket to maintaining a beautiful glow. Taking some well-deserved breaks from the sun will decrease UV intensity, which means you avoid getting sunburned. By following this game plan, you will be able to maintain and healthier and more beautiful suntan for longer.
5. Go for a good quality self-tanning product

Again, self-tanners have also come a long way over the years. The most important part of the self-tanning regimen is to exfoliate your skin and prep it first. This applies to both your face and body and will guarantee even application of your favorite product and a radiant glow in the end without the help of the sun.
