Summer is coming, and the golden Skin is the longing of many of us.
It is essential to do it carefully so as not to damage the skin.
Choose a suitable protector: The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) that you should use, has to be according to your skin type. Currently there is a wide variety and also have active ingredients to prevent aging, stains, with decongestants for rosacea and suitable for acne.
Protect sensitive areas: Use SPF 50 on the face and neck, back of feet and back of hands. Remember to protect the lips too.
Place the sunscreen 30 minutes before exposing yourself to the sun for proper absorption. And replicate every 2 hours or after immersing yourself in the water.
Avoid the midday hours to expose yourself to the sun. Between 11 and 4 pm, try to protect yourself.
Wear wide-brimmed hats, which in addition to protecting your skin, protect the hair so it does not dry out. Also wears sunglasses, since we usually close our eyes and thus favor the formation of wrinkles.
Soothes reddened skin by spraying with thermal water. This type of product contains substances such as silicates and trace elements that calm skin alterations.
Finally, after sun exposure, it is important to have gels, moisturizers (post sun) that soothe the skin, preserve hydration, and allow you to keep tanning for a longer time.
To help your skin maintain a good tan, it is very important to have a healthy diet.
With the sun, the skin becomes dry and needs to be rehydrated with an extra supply of water. For this, it is essential to drink between 2 and 3 liters of water per day. In this sense, it is a good option to include fruit juices.
