Seeing celebrities’ perfect tans makes us wish we could spend more time at the beach. That’s especially true for those of us who spend most of our time in an office or living in cities where the weather isn’t exactly ideal for sunbathing.
Summer is the perfect time to get some color, but beware: as delicious as sunbathing by the Caribbean Sea in Playa del Carmen is, overdoing it can lead to serious injury.
Here are some tips to get a perfect, healthy tan:
- Antioxidants are your allies
An appropriate intake of vitamin E and beta-carotene will contribute to protecting your skin from the negative side effects of excessive sun exposure. Take them as early as 30 days before your tanning session. The results will be amazing.
- Sunblock is your best friend
A sunscreen with a high SPF will help you get a better tan. You read that right: despite being called sunblock, it’s a great way to take care of your skin.
- Be extra careful during the sun’s strongest hours
Between 12 and 4 pm, solar radiation is excessively high and can be dangerous. At those hours, it’s best to get some shade under an umbrella, a palm tree or any of the many services offered in places like Playa del Carmen.
- Eat well
Carrots, tomatoes, peppers and leafy greens help your tan last longer, as well as prevent dehydration and peeling.
- Stay hydrated
After sun exposure, it’s a good idea to apply ointments, aloe vera or moisturizing lotion on your skin, and drink plenty of water. That way you’ll avoid dryness, sunburns and other side effects.
