Tanning facts you should know
Nothing looks or feels better than sun kissed skin; a beautiful healthy glow is the finishing touch to every outfit. But, did you know that a tan is your skin cells in distress?
Let’s take a look at some must know tanning facts.
- When your skin is exposed to harmful UV rays it can trigger a genetic defect, which can lead to skin cells rapidly multiplying and forming tumours. 2 in 3 Australian will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70; that healthy glow doesn’t sound so healthy anymore.
- A youthful appearance and the sun do not go hand-in-hand, the sun ages your skin and causes wrinkles, so that sun kissed look can soon start being more leather-like.
- Did you know that sunscreen alone is enough protection from the sun’s harmful rays? Remember the advertisement, Slip, Slop, Slap.
- Even if you are sat in the shade you can get burnt. Light reflects off surfaces and can burn you without even noticing.
- A base tan is not adequate sun protection. Whilst a base tan will help you a little, it is not enough sun protection, you need a minimum of SPF 30 to stay safe in the sun, and you must reapply every 2 hours.
- Always apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before sun exposure, this allows the active ingredients time to soak into your skin and provide the highest level of protection.
