6 tips to get beautiful tanned skin

Summer is the time of year when a strong, tanned skin is a fashion statement. It is surprisingly difficult to achieve the ideal bronzed skin, as the desire to tan is often preceded by ” peeling skin ” or ” not darkening (too darkening) “. In this issue, we will introduce tips on how to get the ideal bronzed skin!

(1) Take vitamins before sunburn

When you get sunburned, your skin is more or less damaged. You can prepare for UV damage by taking vitamins A, C, and E to increase antioxidant activity.


It is said that it is difficult to consume sufficient amounts of these vitamins in one’s daily diet, so it is recommended to take supplements before sun exposure. The recently popular “drinkable sunscreen” is not a sunscreen that prevents sunburn, but a supplement whose main ingredients are antioxidant vitamins that inhibit skin damage and aging caused by sunburn.

If your skin is not accustomed to tanning or is exposed to harsh UV rays, you will want to choose a tanning lotion with a high sunburn-protecting effect. SPF and SPA are the two most important factors to consider.

What is SPF? SPF is a “skin redness protection factor.”

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, an index that indicates the effectiveness of protection against UVB waves, also known as the Ultraviolet Protection Factor.

SPF is a measure of how long it takes for red spots to form on the skin when exposed to ultraviolet rays. For example, a sunscreen with SPF 50 can increase the time it takes for red spots to appear by 50 times. In Japan, however, SPF is limited to 50because the difference in effectiveness is not clear for SPF 50 or higher.

What is PA? A measure of protection against darkening of the skin.

PA stands for Protection Grade of UVA, which is also known as the UV-A protection index, and is an indicator of the effectiveness in preventing UVA waves.

While SPF is an index to prevent the cause of reddening of the skin, PA is an index to show the degree of protection against the cause of darkening of the skin. PA is indicated in three levels as defined by the Japan Cosmetic Industry Association: PA+: PFA 2 to 4, effective in preventing UV-A / PA++: PFA 4 to 8, effective in preventing UV-A to a great extent / PA+++: PFA 5 to 7, effective in preventing UV-A to a great extent PA+++: PFA 8 or higher, very effective UV-A protection. Choose a sunscreen with this high index if your skin is already close to the ideal color or if you are going out to the ocean where UV rays are strong.

(4) Reapply sunscreen

Sweat and water cause sunscreens to fall off. This is true even for water-proof sunscreens. It is important to reapply every few hours.

(5) Rapid sunburn is a cause of failure. Burn little by little.

Suddenly burning skin that is not accustomed to ultraviolet rays tends to cause skin irritation and other problems.

The key is to tan gradually while checking the condition of the skin, such as avoiding tanning between 10:00 and 14:00, when UV rays are strong, and limiting the first tanning session to 30 minutes or less. Another option is to go to a tanning salon in advance to prepare the skin for tanning.
