We never tire of warning: the sun can be dangerous, so leaving your home without SPF is a big risk. And if you dream of a beautiful tan, then sunbathing is done strictly before noon and after 4:00 p.m. (but also with an SPF cream). The next steps in achieving a tanned complexion are to eat right (we’ve covered the foods that help you get a better tan here) and prep your skin with scrubs. Cosmetologists and dermatologists advise rubbing no more than 2-3 times a week, and during the holidays, when you often sunbathe, use exceptionally gentle products that do not hurt the skin.
