03 Mar, 22

If there is one rule that you must always remember with regards to looking after your skin, it’s that skin has a memory. Everything you do (and, more importantly, everything you don’t do) will have an effect on your skin in the future. That’s why you should look after it and protect it on a daily basis from external agents that can damage it. Here are 5 tips to protect your skin from the sun and to achieve a nice tan.

 

Protecting your skin from the sun

The sun is one of the most damaging factors for your skin and, of course, in the summer it is even more dangerous. This does not only apply at the beach; although the beach is where you are most exposed to the sun, it can still affect your skin when sightseeing in the city or when sat at a terrace.

 

Differentiating between the different rays

It is important to be able to distinguish between the different types of radiation and how to protect yourself against them. On the one hand are UVB rays, which cause burns as they remain on the superficial layers of your skin. On the other hand are UVA rays, which can penetrate deeper into skin, causing photoageing. Finally are INFRARRED rays, which have the greatest effect on skin and can cause heat stroke and sunstroke, accelerating the ageing of skin.

 

The face, your most delicate skin

Your face has the most delicate skin of your whole body; it is the skin that is exposed the most and, as a result, that suffers the most, which is why it’s important to give it extra care. Reapplying sun protection during the day is important to prevent wrinkles and to prevent the hardening of expression lines.

 

A healthy tan

There is a tendency to think that using sun protection will prevent you from getting a tan. However, the purpose of sun protection factor is to protect your skin from getting burned, which does not mean that your skin will not tan. You may need a few more days at the beach, but the result will be a healthy, hydrated and radiant tan.

 

The final step

One of the steps that is often overlooked and that completes an after sun care routine is moisturising. Babaria’s After Sunbathing Balm with Aloe Vera contains Aloe Vera, as its name suggests, giving the balm healing, regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties, besides moisturising the skin. It is the key to repairing your skin and to prolonging your tan.

 

Sun, salt and chlorine are all external factors that can threaten the health of your skin during the summer. We hope you will put our tips into practice so that you can show off your healthy and tanned skin, well into October!
