Tanned skin signifies a healthy lifestyle and muscularity. Nowadays, men are highly fascinated by bronze bodies. Similar to bodybuilding, it has also become one of the vital elements of their schedule to boost up their self-esteem.
Why Should Men Get Tanned?
Tanning not only helps men to get a darker skin tone but also removes eczema, acne and provides an ample amount of Vitamin D. It helps to camouflage the natural look of cellulite, thereby providing a slimmer, young, and glowing look.
Male tanning is uncommon compared to women tanning, so little authentic information is available. So, men need to follow expert advice and tanning tips without harming the skin.
Here are some of the tanning tips that can help you attain a great and desirable physique.
If you are an outdoor lover, then enjoy natural tanning under the sun. But before exposing yourself to sunshine, to get safer and smoother tanning, you need to do the following.
Exfoliation – The process helps you get rid of the dead skin by scrubbing it properly. This step is essential before any type of tanning for an even, glowing, and long-lasting toned skin.
Effective Sunscreen – It is always advisable to use sunscreen with an effective SPF range to protect you from the harmful UV rays but get tanned simultaneously. I prefer to use SPF 15 in winter and SPF 25 or 30 in summer at peak hours.
SPF in sunscreen should be broad-spectrum so that it can shield you against UVA and UVB rays. Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before the exposure. Too much exposure to UV rays can cause unwanted sunburn and skin cancer.
Know Your Skin Type – Everyone has a different skin type, so you should be careful while choosing sunscreen or tanning oil/lotion before sitting out under the sun to avoid any kind of allergic reaction.
Tanning Oil/Lotions – Depending on your skin type, choose a tanning lotion that can moisturize your skin efficiently. Men love to have tanned legs, so numerous legs tanning lotions are available in the market, which can be purchased based on your skin texture.
Tanning oils hydrate your skin and get it tanned faster. The only difference between the women’s and men’s tanning procedures is the choice of a tanning lotion which is significantly different for both genders.
Protect Your Eyes – Use shades and an umbrella at regular interval to avoid direct exposure to sunlight. (more…)
