Everyone loves having a healthy glow to their skin, but we also know that wrinkles are a common side effect of spending too much time in the sun. Luckily, you do not have to choose between a nice tan and smooth skin. There are several ways you can safely tan your skin without speeding up the aging process.
Fight Wrinkles with Tinted Moisturizer
When you use a tinted moisturizer on your face, you are actually fighting wrinkles twice. Properly hydrating your skin each day helps prevent the fine lines that come from dry skin, which can be a natural side effect of aging. The tint in the product will give you the healthy glow you desire without putting your skin at risk by exposing it to ultraviolet days. You can use it as a part of your daily skin care routine and look like you’ve been sitting at the beach without ever taking a step outside.
Use the Correct Sunscreen
If you do choose to get your tan on the beach, you need to take proper precautions to protect against wrinkles and fine lines. Know that not all sunscreens are created equal and you need to choose one that is formulated for your specific skin type. Once you have the right sunscreen, make sure that you reapply it every two hours, regardless of whether or not you sweat or get in the water. Failure to reapply is the most common mistake people make with sunscreen and can put your skin at as much risk as if you hadn’t bothered with it in the first place.
Give Your Skin a Chance to Rest
After spending a day working on your tan in the sun, wait a day or two before heading out for another session. Even with all of the correct sun protection, exposure to ultraviolet rays is going to place some stress on your skin. By staying indoors for a day after tanning, you give your skin the time it needs to regenerate new cells and resolve any irritation that may have occurred from the sun. Multiple days of sun exposure, even with sunscreen, are sure to speed up the appearance of fine lines on your face.
