Summer is just around the corner, but the beach and pool season has begun, and so has the exposure to the sun.To help you to enjoy a beautiful and safe Tan Today we will explain the steps to be taken to properly apply SUNSCREEN.

Plus, we have made a selection of the four best protections we have available in our stores. With them you are going to be protected from the sunlight and its harmful consequences for the skin.

Step 1. Choose the protection
The first thing is to know what SPF means: It is the Sun Protection Factor (time of sun exposure you are protected), and to calculate your needs, you have to know for how long your skin endures exposure to the sun without burning. Imagine your skin capability is 10 minutes. Then, the number that accompanies such SPF, for example 50, indicates that you can handle 500 minutes of sunbathing. The calculation would be, sun exposure time multiplied by the number of SPF. See how easy it is?. As you see, all solar products protect the same and only change the exposure time.

Also keep in mind that in summer we are exposed to situations in which water and sweat can make our protection to be lost. So although formulas are long-lasting, we have to repeat the application of sunscreen after about 40 minutes of exposure. By doing this, we ensure avoiding sunburns.

And of course, there are plenty of formulas, lighter, more unctuous, spray or gel solar products. In this case, the choice is on us, and on what is easier.

Step 2. Application
One of the most common errors is to apply protection when we are already on the beach or pool. Protection needs time to be absorbed and fulfill its function, so 30 minutes before leaving we must apply the sunscreen and we’ll be ready to sunbathe and enjoy!

We can choose to a protection for the entire body, including face or opt for a specific one for the face, which usually contains more nourishing ingredients and also treatment.

Let’s apply the protection! We put the cream in the palms of our hands and warm up the product until the texture becomes lighter by skin contact and heat and then we can distribute the product to the skin. We recommend apply by areas, legs, torso and face. This way we will not forget anything. Take special care in areas that are more delicate, like eye, back, ears, eyelids and neck.

And of course do not forget to protect your lips, which of course can also get sunburnt and can cause our lip skin to be uneven, raised and dehydrated. We will use a balm that contains sunscreen.

Finally, do not forget the AFTER SUN. It will help to preserve the achieved tanning and prevents burns and skin irritation.
