Proper tan

All people are different. Some are born with white skin and blond hair and use Others are naturally swarthy and dark-haired. Susceptibility to the negative effects of ultraviolet radiation in people is different, and depends on skin type and hair color.

However, no matter what type of skin you have, it is useful to follow simple rules for tanning. First of all, avoid exposure to the sun between 11 am and 3 pm. At this time, the sun is closer to the part of the earth’s surface where you are and the intensity of ultraviolet radiation is maximum. At this time, it is better not to wear revealing clothing. Hats and sunglasses with glass lenses are desirable. Plastic usually do not interfere with ultraviolet light.

It is better to take air baths in the morning or in the evening, being in the shade of a canopy. Going south, it’s worth a little practice in familiar surroundings. Unprepared skin exposed to the hot southern sun is at great risk. It is better to prepare the skin by sunbathing at the right time in natural conditions, but you can also visit the solarium several times.

Be sure to dry yourself after bathing. Water droplets act as lenses that focus solar radiation. When choosing a place to tan, remember that the surface of the water reflects 100% of the sun’s radiation, sand – 20, snow – 80. You will get a significant part of the reflected rays.

When tanning, be sure to use sunscreen, do not forget to read the instructions for use on the package. It is not a fact that you will completely protect yourself from harmful rays. But be sure to reduce the negative effects and avoid burns.

Don’t think these simple precautions can be ignored. Statistics inexorably testify to the increase in the number of diseases caused by solar exposure. But it’s not worth going to the other extreme either. After all, the Sun is the source of all life on Earth, we need it. And that boost of vivacity that you bring from the southern resorts will allow you to live comfortably until next summer.
