Easy Ways To Protect Your Skin in the Sun

FYBC 7:4.jpgIf you love being outside but hate the thought of exposing your skin to harmful UV rays, there are ways to combat potential sun damage. Since this summer is proving to be bright and hot one, take the proper precautions to ensure the health and longevity of your skin.

Cover Up– If you know you are going to be outside for an extended amount of time, a hat is a great way to ensure you are protected. It just so happens that the floppy, big hat look is in this summer! For maximum protection, invest in a hat that covers your head, face, and shoulders.

Sunglasses– In this case, the bigger the better. The ideal pair of sunglasses is large frames big enough to cover the whole area around your eyes with polarized lenses with some sort of UV filter. Keep in mind that you should avoid any pair of sunglasses with a reflective lense! Although they are super trendy this summer, they will bounce UV light onto your cheeks

Sunscreen– One of the easiest ways to ensure you are always protected from the sun is to use skin products (primer, moisture etc) that have SPF incorporated into them. This is a great way to minimize your exposure to damaging UV rays. Look for products with an SPF level of at least 30 and to apply it just a frequently as you would sunscreen.

Avoid Laying Out– There is nothing healthy about sunbathing. Aside from the occasional burn, over exposing your skin to direct sunlight has dangerous consequences. If you are unwilling to give up sunbathing, consider taking it slowly and allow your skin to build up its melanin. If being tan is that important to you, a spray tan can give you that sunkissed look without the damage.

The way you treat your skin right now will certainly dictate how youthful, healthy and fresh you look later on in life. Taking good care of your skin now is vital to remaining healthy and naturally beautiful. Do what is necessary to protect your skin from the sun and look beautiful doing it.

At Home Remedies For A Minor Sunburn

fybc 6:1:17There is nothing worse than a sunburn. Not only are they uncomfortable but they can cause damage to surface of your skin. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, health is one of our primary cares, which is why we encourage sunless tanning as an alternative to laying out in the sun. That being said, sunburns happen! Here are a few at home remedies you can use to care for your sunburns this summer.

  • Take cold showers or baths frequently
  • With a cool washcloth, apply lotions like aloe vera or chamomile to the burned area. Hydrocortisone Cream may also help relieve both the pain and swelling often associated with a sunburn.
  • If your sunburn has reached its peeling phase, there is little you can do to stop it. Hydrate the affected areas of your skin with lotion or coconut oil multiple times a day to kick start the healing process.

It is important to ease back into the sun after a burn. Give your skin the chance to fully recover and heal before exposing it to direct sunlight. Looking tan is such a confidence booster, but there are ways to get color without compromising your skin. If you have never had a spray tan or are looking to try it, feel free to give us a call. If you are ready to rock a sunkissed glow, book your appointment online today.

Keep Your Spray Tan Flawless!

fybc

 

Good spray tans are often hard to come by, so you find a salon that leaves you glowing and flawless, do your best to take care of your amazing tan. Here are a few things to keep in mind before getting your next spray tan with us!

  1. Don’t wear tight clothes – Post- spray tan your skin tends to be a bit sticky. Which is why it is a bad idea to wear tight clothing until the formula dries and sets in. Tight clothing increase your chances of smudging you tan. Bring along a loose fitting outfit and avoid smearing your tan.
  2. Sandals or Slip-On Shoes – Putting socks on after a spray tan is a big no no! Although this seems like a small detail, it can totally ruin your spray tan.  We suggest bringing slip-on shoes or sandals to wear post-spray tan!
  3. Know When to Get Your Tan – Spray tans need a good amount of time to set into your skin. If you want a long lasting, fresh tan, you should shower after only after hours.It is in your best interest to book your next spray tan for a day where you have some time to kill.

Now is the perfect time to schedule your spray tan appointment. The spring weather is about to hit hard and we know you want to be ready to show off your skin! Do not let the remnants of pale winter skin get you down. We have the spring time transformation fix here at Forever Young Body Clinic.
