Tips on how to get a long-lasting bronze tan fast

Summer means lots of sun and the most natural way to get a nice bronze tan are the sunbaths. The everlasting trend of golden tan and our desire to get it as fast as possible brings us to the dilemma on how to reach this without damaging our health. Here’s a list of our tips on the subject:

1. Healthy diet for a nice tan even before your first sunbath.

As you know, skin is the human body's largest organ. In order for the skin to function right, and if you want to get an amazing tan, you can add – to your daily diet – foods which sustain the natural production of lycopene. Lycopene is the natural SPF of the body. Foods rich in lycopene are: tomatoes, watermelon, grapefruit, and papaya. For a nice tan, you can eat more foods rich in antioxidants and polyphenols too. These include green tea, European blueberry, dark chocolate, aniseed.

Some foods can even reduce the risk of sunburn. These are carrots, almonds, pomegranate, and leafy veggies. It is no surprise then why the base of the SUN LIKE sun protection products is the „CAROTENЕ+“ complex – extract from carrots and lots of vitamins. It sustains the natural production of melanin in the skin, thus significantly reducing its sensitivity and proneness to sunburn.

2. When you first go out in the sun. Even if it seems that the sun isn’t so strong, you can still get that unpleasant sunburn, which afterwards won’t be very easy to cope with. SUN LIKE recommends that you use sun protection products with higher SPF the first time you go out in the sun, even if your skin isn’t the Scandinavian type. You have to begin with at least SPF 30. Spray-milk, oil, or lotion – whichever product you are going to choose from the SUN LIKE products, you can rely on a 100% quality protection from the harmful effect of the UVA and UVB rays. Don’t forget that the sunscreen product has to be applied at least 20 minutes before going out, and a follow-up application is a must after every bath and towel rub. Do not save on quantity! Only appropriate amount of applied product can guarantee you efficient protection and peaceful time on the beach.

3. Take care of your skin after sunbaths. 

It is good to start with a tepid shower or even better – a tepid bathtub. It’s important that after sunbaths you avoid the use of deep cleansing products for the skin such as exfoliants. Use tender cosmetic products with as much as possible natural ingredients.

After-sun care. Did you know that, the after-sun products help tan stay longer and make it more beautiful?
