Trying to get a tan is a very appealing makeover. With so many looks to consider, getting a tan can be a radical change to a teen’s life. Sunbathing is the most common and straightforward approach to getting a tan which is why this is the preferred method for most teens. It’s very important to follow these tips to make sure that teenagers can tan safely.
- Before you bask under the sun, make sure that you’ve lathered enough sunscreen. Enough would be to cover every inch of skin; and it must be totally dry before you start soaking the sun’s rays. In retrospect, it takes about thirty minutes for the sunscreen to really work. Make sure to reapply the sunscreen every two to three hours to prevent your skin from getting sunburned.
- Set a specific time of the day that you want to tan. By limiting the time of the day, you can make the most out of the hours spent to tanning without having to worry about an uneven tan. This also helps guide you on how long you’ve been under the sun. Try to set a timer when you tan so you can move from one side to the other and to avoid exhausting your body in the process.
- If you’re going to make the most out of your tan, make sure to wear a set of clothes that covers enough to keep yourself modest. It’s not a good idea to tan with a skimpy attire, though you can circumvent this if you tan in your backyard. The best option for this case would be to make use of tan-through clothing. This type of clothing lets the UV rays through the fabric thus any skin underneath can still get its share of the tanning process.
