DEVELOP A GOOD BASE TAN: How is your Tan going? Dark? Dark as you want to be? You know with the weather improving and the fourth of July just around the corner the opportunity to go outside in the sun, sun bathing, swimming well you know what I mean can invite sunburn and unwanted looks at those white legs.
It would be a pretty good idea to try to get a nice base tan prior to going to the beach, river or pool. Despite what was considered normal for tanning (go outside get burnt, peel and then turn Tan) it is not good for you, it is not comfortable and it is actually a pain. So my best suggestion would be to come to the salon and enjoy tanning at least every other day or so while you are developing a nice base tan. Every other day will work for some while others need maybe every third day. You won't gain by trying to tan when you are pink so before you go tanning make sure you are not a little pink from a previous session. Use a good tanning lotion that will take care of your skin and accelerate the body's natural tanning process. Doing this process correctly will actually help you develop a tan faster. Keep in mind if you are already a person with a good base tan what I just wrote really does not apply. I am trying to help those of you who are not tan and are likely to go outside and over do the exposure to UV light thing that so often happens and really shouldn't.
The rest of you who actually have good base tans and even more, my advise to you is to keep doing what you are doing, keep tanning on a regular basis and enjoy tanning outside. Even with a good base tan or a little more you still run a risk of getting burnt due to overexposure while outside. Use a good SPF and re-apply frequently depending on how long you are planning on staying out in the Sun. Another good thing I might suggest you purchase and keep with you is a sunburn cooler gel. Body Drench's Skin Therapy Sunburn Cooler Gel will help you in the case of you getting a bit sun burnt. It is a marvelous cooling product.
Something else I should bring up is if you use SPF you really need to use an excellent moisturizer. Most SPF products are created for one thing and that is to keep you from burning. They are not good skin care products. You need to rehydrate your skin after being out in the Sun for any length of time. Remember it would be in your best interests to use a very good lotion all the time, you will soon be amazed at how nice and soft your skin feels.
