How to protect skin from sun tan

Planning for a summer trip but worried about your skin in this scorching heat? If yes, then you don’t have to worry anymore about it. We know how much our skin suffers from issues like tan, sunburn, and whatnot. We have to admit that we all once had skin tan which we wished to remove in a day but it took forever to go! Skin tan occurs when a body is trying to protect itself from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Our skin releases melanin beneath the surface layers of your pores to protect your skin from harmful UV radiation.  The more sun exposure your skin will have, the darker it will get due to excessive melanin production. 

You might get a lot of tips to remove skin tan but let us tell you that it’s a thousand times better to protect your skin rather than trying multiple remedies to get the fair glowing skin back. After all, we should come back from a vacation with memories and pictures, not sunburn or tanned skin. Here are 5 pro tips for you that will protect your skin no matter how much you enjoy it!

Cleanse and exfoliate your skin:

While on vacation, make sure you wash your face at least twice a day (once in the morning and once at night). Cleaning your skin with the best face wash helps to detoxify your skin. Exfoliation is also a great way to clean and replenish the skin. A gentle scrub can help clean the dead dark skin cells that might have formed upon exposure to the sun. However, make sure the scrub isn’t very harsh on your skin as it might tear your skin or make it exposed to dirt, dust, and the sun.

Wear sunblock more than ever!

Best Sunscreen in Pakistan is one of those things we take for granted. We put it on our skin before going outside, then we spend hours and hours out in the hot sun without any protection. However, sunblock can help us enjoy a much healthier and more fun time. If you haven't heard about the dangers of sun exposure, now is definitely the time to start protecting yourself! Sunlight is not only dangerous to your physical appearance, but also to your mental well-being. Studies have shown that constant exposure to sunlight can cause depression and anxiety. So if you're planning on spending a lot of time outdoors, make sure you protect yourself while having fun! Use spectrum sunblock every day. Apply a broad spectrum SPF 15 sunblock 30 minutes before heading out in the sun. Also, apply Spectra block 60 after swimming or sweating heavily. Spectra matt 40 is an ideal sunblock for oily skin. This sunblock price in Pakistan is PKR 1498. 100 SPF sunblock is best for combination skin. Jenpharm’s Spectra sunblock 60 is ideal for dry skin type.

Hydrate your skin!

When you go on holiday, you want to make sure that your skin looks its absolute best. But do not worry if you have dry sensitive skin! You should apply a rich moisturizer that has a high content of hyaluronic acid. These types of products help to retain water in the skin while keeping it soft and smooth. Moisturizer is important in keeping your skin healthy and hydrated from within. You can use Dermive oil-free moisturizer which comes with SPF 15 if you want to double protect your skin during the day! Not only a moisturizer helps in hydrating your skin but it also helps in creating a barrier protecting your face from pollution and preventing breakouts and blackheads. 

Try to avoid peak hours!

You can dodge the UV rays! Sounds unreal? Well, believe it or not, you can protect your skin from all types of damage simply by avoiding the sun during certain hours. Peak hours of the day start from 12 PM and last till 3 PM. At this time, the intensity of harmful sun rays is higher than at any time of the day. So if you avoid sun exposure during these hours, you can save your skin from tan, skin cancer, and free radical charge. 

Carry your umbrella everywhere!

Stop saving your umbrella for a rainy day. We all pull our umbrellas out of the closet when the skies are stormy but it’s time to consider it on sunny days too! Carrying an umbrella on warm summer days can protect your skin from UV radiation. According to research, umbrellas tend to block at least 77% of damaging rays. It is safe to say that umbrellas are almost as effective as sunscreen where UV protection is concerned.  Even though umbrellas are considered enough, we still recommend you to use sunblock.

If you’re skipping your sunscreen and you believe that it won’t tan your skin, then you are thinking in the wrong direction. A UV sunblock, is something that prevents the harsh effects of sun rays on your skin. Your skin needs sun protection! If you follow mentioned 5 steps, you can avoid the sunny mess! Now fight the summer heat and enjoy your vacations as much as you want!

More than one type of oil

It’s important to distinguish which type of oil should be used when. Some people opt to use a face oil during the cleansing step of their routine as part of a double cleanse, also known as an oil cleanse. Cleansing face oils are a great first step at removing make up without stripping moisture from your skin. Using a small amount of face oil, a little bit of warm water and a damp washcloth, you can gently wash off the day’s impurities from your face as the first part of your cleansing. Followed with a complementary cleanser that’s not too abrasive, your skin will have cleaner pores once the double cleanse works to remove dead skin, makeup and other nasties.
