Whether you opt for sun exposure or alternatives without, you'll discover everything you need to get the perfect tan for summer.
How to prepare your skin for the sun before summer?
Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes the desire to enjoy an outdoor vacation. But before exposing yourself, it is essential to prepare your skin for the sun to avoid the harm of UV radiation , which can cause long-term damage such as premature aging or superficial tissue cancer more commonly called melanoma . So, when should you start preparing your skin for this light source? Ideally, sun preparation should begin at least two weeks before the first exposure .
The first step in skin preparation is to exfoliate your epidermis to remove dead skin . This helps soften and smooth the epidermis to obtain an even tan . To do this, use a gentle scrub for the face and body, and exfoliate once a week. After exfoliating, apply a rich moisturizer to deeply nourish it.
Next, it is important to protect yourself from the sun's harmful UV rays by applying a protective cream . Choose a broad-spectrum cream with a protection factor of at least 30 to protect your body from UVB and UVA. Apply the cream about 30 minutes before exposure , and reapply it every two hours , or more often if you sweat or swim. Note that it is not recommended to coat yourself with monoi oil or other oils at the risk of roasting like a chicken, which is not recommended for your skin!
Finally, it is important to take care of your body from the inside out by taking dietary supplements rich in vitamins and antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E. These nutrients help protect your skin from damage caused by rays . Consider using our Absolu Solar food supplements , rich in antioxidants for maximum sun protection against the harmful effects of rays and to prepare your skin for the sun.
How to speed up your tan?
Now that your skin is ready to face the luminous giant, how can you benefit from a tanned complexion without harming your health ? First of all, it is important to know that the process of skin pigmentation is natural and depends on many factors such as skin type and the amount of melanin present. There is no sure, guaranteed method to speed up tanning, but we can give you tips to help your skin color faster .
The ideal time to enjoy the skin benefits of good weather is during the hottest and brightest hours, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. However, it is crucial not to extend your time under the sun's rays, as this can cause long-term damage like premature aging and skin cancers. It is recommended to limit your exposure time depending on whether your skin is rather light or dark, to 15 to 30 minutes .
To boost your pigmentation, you can take food supplements containing beta-carotene , a pigment present in many orange and red fruits and vegetables (carrots, apricots, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.) before and during your light bath. . Beta-carotene can help stimulate melanin production in the skin and give it a more even tan . Absolu Solar chewable tablets from Reborn Paris contain carotenoids ( lycopene ), pigments from turmeric and copper which allow this same action. You can also apply a self-tanning lotion or oil to hydrate your skin and stimulate melanin production. Be careful, however, to use these cosmetics in moderation because otherwise you will be able to say goodbye to the natural tan and hello to the carrot complexion. Of course, these treatments are applied before or after exposure so as not to burn your skin.
How to get a tanned face without sun?
If you prefer to avoid exposure to the sun, or you have decided to go on vacation to a Nordic country, there are several options for sporting a tan without spending hours sunbathing. Self-tanning products are a popular solution for this. They work by coloring the upper layers of the skin without causing cell damage.
There are several brands of self-tanning creams on the market that are easy to apply and give an even, natural-looking tan . It is important to choose a product adapted to your skin type and location (face or body) and to exfoliate your skin well with a gentle scrub before application to prevent spots . This helps eliminate cells and dead skin and create new skin so that the treatment integrates evenly into the skin.
Self-tanning capsules are another option, although their effectiveness is open to debate. They often contain ingredients such as tyrosine and beta-carotene , which help stimulate melanin production in the skin. However, it is important to remember that self-tanning capsules are not sunscreen and should not be used as a substitute for sunscreen . The term self-tanner is also misused by many brands, as regulations prohibit this term. At Reborn Paris , we advocate transparency and respect for laws and we use the term "tan activator", closer to reality to describe the action of our solar product. Because without the sun, it is difficult or even unattainable for a food supplement to give you an intense and natural tan, especially if you have fair skin.
How to get tanned all year round?
Your skin color can fade quickly if you don't take care of it. So, to maintain your tan , it is crucial to continue to nourish and hydrate your skin.
After exposure to the sun, using after-sun is essential to help your skin recover and prolong the life of your coloring. These products provide deep hydration , soothe sunburn and prevent flaking .
There are also tanned complexion extenders on the market. These products often contain ingredients such as vitamin E, coconut oil and aloe vera, which help maintain your tan for longer.
Our chewable supplements help improve the quality of the skin and repair skin damage caused by UV rays to prevent too rapid loss of color. In particular, they increase the sun capital , that is to say the resistance to sunburn .
In conclusion, it is important to take care of your skin tissue before and after exposure to the sun to have a nice, healthy and long-lasting tan. Make sure to prepare your skin for the sun by properly nourishing and hydrating it before sun exposure. Protect your skin with sunscreen adapted to your skin type and avoid exposing yourself to the sun for too long, especially during the hottest hours of the day (max 15-30 minutes). If you prefer to avoid exposure to the sun, you can opt for self-tanning products. In any case, remember to continue to protect your skin against harmful UV rays. Finally, prolong your tan by moisturizing your skin with after-sun products and using tan extender products.
