Sun burns:

Fair skinned people are more likely to get affected by the sun. They get sun burns faster rather than a healthy tan. A healthy tan can leave the fair skin with a lovely sun kissed touch. There’s a thin line between a sun burn and a healthy tan. If natural tanning is not practiced in the right way they are chances of developing a skin cancer or any other skin related issue. So watch out and take care the next time you step out for a tan.


To have a healthier and a glowing tan make sure you moisturize your body in regular intervals. Tanning dries up your skin completely and it leads to sunburns which are not safe. The key for getting a healthy tan is to keep the skin hydrated and moisturized. So moisturize regularly to keep up the glow and shine of your tanned skin.


If you are planning to get a healthy tan under the sun,then remember that the UVA and UVB rays are very harmful to the skin as they can cause cancer. So apply a sunscreen with a lower SPF so that the UV rays don’t harm your skin while tanning. Also don’t forget to wear a hat that helps in a damage free hair and it also protects your eyes from the sun rays. So wear a perforated hat or shades or both. It does look kinda cool too!

Tanning Lotion:

Use a self tanning lotion containing sodium PCA for better tanning. This is considered to be the best tip for natural skin tanning.

Apply a body lotion:

This keeps the tan stay longer. Aloe vera lotion is very effective as it moisturizes the skin amd makes the tan last much longer.

Soothing mask:

Make sure you sooth and calm down your skin after the tanning session with a face pack which will hydrate and get back the shine, keeping your skin sun kissed and at the same time not letting your tan wear off completely.
