Hello Superhero Entrepreneur! 

I hope you’re well! Today Im going to talk about the sun and how to tan smart! Summer is soon here, and I long to feel the grass or sand between my toes. I think that summer is the best time, and I have many nice summer memories with the sun and love to work at the beach. 

I had 3 different kinds of beauty clinics back in the day, and often my customers were in the sun too long, which is unsuitable for the skin and causes us to age faster. It’s better to tan smart, and I’ll tell you how!

Learn to tan smarter

Every summer, the same question arises, what kind of sunscreen should I use, and which is the best?

It is essential to convey that sunscreen in the form of a cream is not the basis for healthy tanning but part of a whole!

What do I mean by that?

Often when you use sunscreen, it gives you false security. You often think that it is okay to be tanning even more and for a more extended period of time. You take a more significant risk when you put on sunscreen of higher Spf, believing it will protect you completely, but that is not the case.

 3 Steps to tan smarter:

 1. You can eat for better protection from within! Add the right nutrition through your diet through antioxidants, healthy fats, and nutrients; sometimes, you may even need to add supplements. D-vitamin and Zinc are two of the most important to protect your skin. 

2. Be aware of how, when, and for how long you are in the sun. It is when you burn yourself that it becomes dangerous.

3. Add the right sunscreen to the skin! Be aware of what your sunscreen contains for substances and what kind of sunscreen it is.

When tanning, avoid being out in the sun when it is at its highest points, between 10 am and 3 pm. You can tan for 20-30 minutes, preferably without sunscreen. You must protect yourself with sunscreen if you stay longer in the sun.

I recommend putting on clothes and/or sitting in the shadow if you are out in the sun for more than 30 minutes. Burning yourself is never good. Wear a hat and sunglasses that are protected from UV light.

The sun can aggravate certain skin conditions such as rosacea, and many people can get a sun allergy, which can be based on several different causes. You may react to the sunscreen you are using or other skin care products that may contain various chemicals that remain on the skin surface. It can also be medicine excreted through the skin and react primarily with UVA light. Many people can also get more acne when in the sun, and the combination of sunscreen can clog the sebaceous gland exit. Wrinkles occur even earlier if you have been out in the sun more.

Hope you have a nice “worcation” at the beach!
