What you need to do to keep your tan longer

Natural remedies and tricks for a healthy tan

Summer is the most relaxing period for body and mind, thanks to the numerous activities that can be done outdoors and to the increasingly long days in which wellness and relaxation go hand in hand. Even the sun is our good friend, to regain some color after the gray winter. Obviously, it is necessary to take the right precautions to avoid chapping and sunspots due to too much exposure to the sun, to ensure that the complexion acquired after a day at the beach or in the mountains lasts longer even in the following months.

It's time to say STOP to "ferocious" sunburns: this is the wrong method if you want your tan to last longer! Here are some tricks to keep the tan perfect and long-lasting!

Maintaining a tan: natural remedies

To defend your tan, there are some small tricks that you can turn into a daily habit: simple gestures for the skin, which include nutrition and products.

  1. In summer, avoid the use of perfumes on body and face before exposing yourself to the sun, because alcohol is the real enemy of a tan.
  2. If you often go to the pool, remember to rinse immediately to prevent chlorine from remaining on the skin for too long. In fact, chlorine alters the pH of the epidermis and reduces the thickness of the hydrolipidic film (i.e. the natural protective layer of the skin), exposing it more to aggression from external agents.
  3. favor foods that contain beta-carotene and antioxidants, like fruits and vegetables.
  4. Use black tea: as a concentrated infusion in the bath or as a spray in the shower, sprinkling evenly over the body. In fact, black tea contains a high quantity of vitamins B2, E, C, and is rich in polyphenols and minerals essential for our body, such as potassium, zinc and magnesium. The application of black tea helps relieve the discomfort of sunburn, makes the skin homogeneous by reducing the spots caused by the sun and prevents premature aging.

But how long does it take to lose the tan?

The life cycle of the skin is approximately 30 days, the time it takes to pass from the basal state (where there is an intense metabolic activity) to the stratum corneum, the final phase in which the cells (corneocytes) age and desquamate, making room for new cells. This process is also said cell turnover. When this cycle is completed, we see our skin slowly returning to its natural color.
Obviously, the benefits of the sun on the skin can be prolonged with the right precautions.
