Summer is finally here, and the sun is shining brightly. But before you start squirting tanning lotion on your body, check out these tips for getting your perfect summer body safely.
Don’t Tan Between 10 A.m. And 4 P.m
The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., but you can still get a tan if you’re out in the sun during these hours, just not as much of it as you might think.
The reason why this is so important is that the amount of time spent outdoors changes with each season—and spring and fall are particularly sunny months on average (and therefore more likely to leave you with burn marks). So if you want to avoid burned skin this summer, try not to spend too much time outside when those two seasons roll around!
Tan For Short Periods Of Time
You can tan for short periods of time, but only if you have good sun-resistant skin. If your skin isn’t as dark or thick as a lobster’s claw, then it won’t be able to protect itself from the sun’s rays.
You should also avoid tanning too often—less than three times a week is ideal because this will prevent wrinkles and age spots from forming on your face and body.
The sun is out and you’re ready to get your summer body on. You’ve got the beach in mind, but how do you know that the sun protection factor (SPF) of your sunscreen will be enough?
To make sure that you’re using enough sunscreen, look at the label: If it has an SPF of 15 or higher, then it’s likely going to protect against UVB rays. If it doesn’t have a high SPF rating but instead says it offers broad-spectrum protection from UVA rays—meaning it blocks both types of solar radiation—then consider applying additional layers over top before heading outside; this extra layer can help boost both UVB and UVA levels as well as provide extra hydration for sensitive skin types such as those with rosacea or psoriasis.
Consider Aloe Vera Or Oils To Help Protect Your Skin From The Sun.
You can also use aloe vera or oils to protect your skin from the sun. Aloe vera is a great way to keep your skin healthy, and it’s easy to apply. You can find aloe vera at most pharmacies, or even better yet: your local grocery store may carry some!
Oils are another great way to protect yourself from harmful rays—and they’re really easy on the budget too! If you’re looking for something more natural than sunscreen (and less expensive), try using coconut oil as a moisturizer before heading out into the sun. It’ll help lock in moisture while keeping those pesky wrinkles at bay!
Take Frequent Breaks
Take frequent breaks when swimming or playing water sports, so you can reapply sunscreen often. Apply sunscreen every two hours, even if you think it’s been on for a while. That way, your skin will have time to absorb any remaining moisturizer and the SPF in it before absorbing new ingredients from sweat or water.
Get Your Tan Safely!
The sun is the main source of UV damage in your body, so it’s important to protect yourself from this harmful light.
Wear a hat that covers most of your head and face (if you have long hair, consider wearing a hat with a brim). Wear sunglasses with UV protection built in—they should block out at least 99% of all visible light rays. This will help keep you safe from unnecessary exposure to harmful UV rays while still allowing enough transparency so that you can see what’s going on around you!
Wear long sleeves on top and bottom as well as shoes that cover those areas too (this helps keep skin covered).
Hopefully, we’ve helped you get a better understanding of how to tan safely during the summer. We know that there are many options out there, and we wish you luck in finding something that works for you! Remember: your skin is your largest organ—and it deserves proper care!
