The weather has started to warm up and the sun is shining more brightly. As much as we love the sun’s warmth in the winter season, we tend to hide from it during the summer season. The reasons can be many but, one of the most common issues that people face during the summer is getting tan. Tanning can cause skin damage and increase the risk of skin cancer. But worry not because we have got you covered! Let us walk you through some amazing tips on how to protect your skin from tan.
1. Do Not Skip Sunscreen
Wearing sunscreen is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your skin from tan. Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating. Don't forget to apply sunscreen to all exposed areas of your skin, including your face, ears, and hands. You can consider trying out CIEL Skin Brightening Sunscreen with SPF 50.
2. Do Not Forget To Wear Protective Clothing
Wearing protective clothing can also help protect your skin from tan. Opt for loose, lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and pants made of breathable fabrics like cotton. You can also wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face and neck from the sun, or much easier–wear a scarf! What’s more, you can also use skin-brightening products because some clothes may allow UVA penetration and your skin can still get tanned.
3. Avoid Going Out During Peak Hours
You probably already know that sun rays are stronger between 11 to 3 pm. So, make sure to avoid going out or spending much time outside during these hours. If necessary, make sure to cover your face and body and also wear the skin brightening day cream to give your skin the protection it needs.
4. Stay Hydrated
It goes without saying! Drinking plenty of water is essential to protect your skin from tan. When you're dehydrated, your skin is more susceptible to damage from the sun, so make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Always carry a bottle full of water wherever you go and keep sipping water every few minutes.
5. Stay Consistent
Finally, it's important to stay consistent with your sun protection efforts. Protecting your skin from tanning is not a one-time event – it requires ongoing effort and attention. Make sure to incorporate all the sun protection necessities into your daily routine, and don't let your guard down just because it's cloudy or overcast outside.
By following the above-mentioned tips, you can easily work towards protecting your skin from the harsh damage caused by the sun on your skin. However, at the same time, it is also essential to follow a consistent skincare regime. CIEL has a range of skin-brightening products that are highly effective in removing tan from the skin.
