Dirty curl: sun my soul

Make the sun your best beauty friend

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been out in the sun during summer trying to tan. One thing I learned, after many hours under the sun, is that if you don’t take care of your skin, you can cause serious damage to it. These tips will help you to maintain your skin’s health and get your best summer bronzing: 

1. A good sun screen
This is necessary in order to protect your face and body from the harmful ultraviolet sun rays. Any factor of sunscreen will work but the bigger the number, better protection. “Nivea Pure Sensitive Spray or Lotion SFP50” will offer excellent protection, Free from perfumes, colourants and preservatives, contains a high UVA protection to reduce the risk of skin allergies.

2. Try to avoid the peak hours, from 11 a.m. to about 3 p.m. This is the sun at its hottest.

3. Wear hat. Not only you will protect you hair and face, but you will also gain a stylish look by the sea.

4. Drink a lot of water. You’ll find yourself very thirsty during a hot, sunny day. Drink water or juice, avoid processed drinks and high sugars if possibly, as these will bloat you and won’t offer the re-hydration you need.

5. MOISTURIZE. This is the most important step after a cold shower, Express Hydration Body Lotion Nivea. Fast absorbing long-lasting moisture with Hydra IQ. Apply it everywhere. Moisturizing prevents peeling and itching, while keeping the skin moist and even.

Don’t be afraid of the sun as long as you expose yourself moderate under the sun. Plus, tanned skin means less make-up, you look relaxed and leaner.

Extra beauty tip: try not to shower immediately after coming in from a day in the sun. Your body needs time to finish processing the Vitamin D and UVA/UVB rays. Try to wait at least an hour before showering.
