Manhattan Tanning

A brilliant – cocoa tan makes your skin look stunning, as well as helps you look slimmer. Also, lying in the sun raises your serotonin levels and makes you more joyful, so there’s nothing like having a ton of fun at the shoreline and getting a fill of that celebrated vitamin D. 

These are some of our tips on how to get the most out of your tanning days:

1. Continuously Use Lotions

 Before we discuss the tanning booth, we need to set something straight: indoor tanning lotion is constantly needed. In case you’re anxious it would keep you from getting darker, don’t worry it won’t affect your tan. Your skin recharges itself at regular periods of time so the slower you tan, the more it will last. Apply the moisturizer at several periods of time. When you get into the booth, and just intermittently throughout the rest of the day. Getting a base tan in the beds may be a good way to lessen the burns for someone who burns easily and is planning a trip in the sun.

2. Shower as Soon as You Can Afterwards  

Scrubbing down after a long day on the beach can be very relaxing, but it also has great benefits for your tan! Especially taking a hot shower will make your tan shine and glisten. If you’re sunburnt, it may sting a little at first, but you’ll be alright in a minute.

3. Secure your eyes 

Obviously, your eyes are important and it is essential that you maintain them the best way that you can. A time when people often overlook this is when they go to the beach. Many people will bring sunglasses with them, but at times this isn’t enough to protect your eyes in the best way possible. You may be asking what more can you do? The best thing to do is to wear a cap or keep them shut, rather than using sun glasses while lying in the sun. Believe it or not your eyelids are more effective than those designer glasses most of you are sporting at the beach.

4. Move around 

When tanning your front have your arms up and when you turn on your stomach keep your arms out more than that. Along these lines, you uncover even those parts that are harder to show off. Flip each 10 or 20 minutes. Some people get so into it that they set an alarm every time it goes off they move their positioning in the sun. Just be careful there’s one thing that you don’t want to do; fall asleep in the sun! If you do, you may have a rough time moving around much the day after.

5. It’s All About Time

One thing is for certain, you do not want to overdo it or underdo your time in the sun. For starters, if you underdo it – you will not get your desired tan. On the other hand, if you overdo it chances are that your time in the sun will be limited for a while due to the irritation of a sunburn. Setting out a plan ahead of time can really help you. Know what you want to do and when you want to do it. This will help you avoid these mistakes.
