Best tips to get sun tan, safely | Gold Coast | Breakers North

Best tips to get sun tan, safely

Everyone loves the painless, smooth glow of a natural tan. When you are feeling the summer vibes, a great sun kissed glow can look amazing.

Below are some tips for a safe sun tan

  1. Moisturising – If you want a long-lasting tan, then it’s always recommended to keep your skin hydrated by moisturising your skin twice a day.
  2. Wear a sunscreen – most people think after tanning sunscreen is not necessary, but they are wrong. Sunscreen will protect against those UVA and UVB rays, where as a baseline tan will only provide 3 – 5 % UV protection.
  3. Avoid sunbeds – sunbeds can be more harmful than the sun’s rays, so kick the habit and stay sun and sunbed safe.
  4. Exfoliate your skin –remove the dead skin and get an even looking skin tone. Exfoliating helps in removing oil and dirt and aids in preventing acne forming on your skin. The dead skin could be easily scrubbed off by using exfoliating gloves.
  5. Know your tanning time – the fairer you are the less you should tan. Don’t let your skin burn, don’t forget to always be sun safe.

The old saying, slip, slop and slap is always a good rule of thumb to follow when trying to be sun safe.

Be prepared: Tips to follow before going on the beach | Beachfront Apartments Gold Coast | Breakers North

Be prepared: Tips to follow before going on the beach

A trip to the beach can be a lots of fun and a gateway for relaxation. But before hitting the beach, you must thoroughly plan for the trip. For example- if you forget to pack the sunscreen, the trip can turn into a pain. So to prepare you for a hassle-free trip, here are a few tips for you to follow before going on the beach.

  1. Bring an extra change of cloth so that on your way back home you won’t be all wet and sandy.
  2. Put your phone in a ziplock bag to protect it from the sand and water. Don’t worry, you can still use your phone through the plastic.
  3. Bring sunscreen- but know the difference between the two common types of sunscreen to know what works for you. Chemical based sunscreen acts like a sponge absorbing the sunrays thus giving more UVA protection and physical sunscreen acts like a shield reflecting the sunrays- it’s better for you to choose if you have sensitive skin.
  4. Don’t forget to bring a sunglass. Your eyes are sensitive in the sun; a lot of people doesn’t realise it. Unfiltered UV causes damage to the retina over time, so don’t forget to check for the health/safety information when purchasing sunglass.
  5. Bring along apple cider vinegar spray for instant relief if you get a little too much sun.
  6. Make sure to bring baby powder, it takes off sand faster than anything else.
  7. Make aloe Vera ice cubes before you leave. Even if you don’t get a sunburn, your skin still need to cool down after being outside all day.

By preparing for the beach trip in advance give you the opportunity to enjoy to the fullest without being worried.
