Woman applying her sunscreen to protect her skinOne of the ways to flaunt your bodybuilding achievements is to get a tan. A darker skin tone showcases the cuts, lines, and definition of your abs, biceps, triceps, and even leg muscles. However, you may have doubts about tanning because of its negative effects.

Experts weigh in and cite these ways on how you can get a tan safely.

Exfoliate Before Tanning

If you are tanning outdoors, exfoliate your skin first before exposing it. Exfoliation gets rid of dead cells on your skin’s upper layer. The removal of dead cells evens your tone, prevents oil and dirt from clogging the pores, and prevents the onset of acne.

After the process of exfoliation, scrub off dead skin cells using oatmeal, salt, or sugar exfoliating glove or pad. Less accumulation of dead cells means the layer of skin will be shallower, making your tan last. Fewer dead skin cells also make it easier for you to get darker and have an even tone from head to toe.

Apply Sunscreen

To prevent skin damage or even cancer, skin expert Bali Body suggests you apply body oil with SPF on your skin before staying under the sun. Contrary to popular belief, you can still get that darker tone even with a layer of sunscreen.

Applying products with high SPF extends the time you spend tanning without increasing your chances of incurring damage to skin or other related ailments. The amount of sunscreen to apply must be around 2 milligrams per square centimeters of skin exposed to the sun.

Put some on at around 15 to 30 minutes before tanning and apply another layer 15 to 30 minutes after exposure.

Avoid Overexposure

For a healthy tan, avoid overexposure to UV rays; divide time under the sun to reduce skin damage and possible sunburn. Undergo tanning in small doses to even your tone and make it last longer. The ideal time-frame is approximately 30 minutes to an hour a day.

These are some of the ways to get a healthy and glowing tan without incurring sunburn and skin damage. Practice these to get the results you want and make them last longer.
