What To Know Before You Glow!!!!

tanning: the act of exposing yourself to the suns ray to make yourself browner or darker


Tanning outdoors is safe to do if you do it the right way. There are four steps for getting the perfect tan safely. 

  1. Exfoliate you skin. Exfoliating  your skin gets rid of all the dead skin cells! The sun can shrine better in you if your dead cells are gone
  2. Wear SUNSCREEN. Yes sunscreen! Do not tan if you ARE NOT going to wear sunscreen! Sunscreen helps your skin to not get Burt and it also protects your skin from the sun.
  3. Limit the time you spend outdoors! Don’t spend all day in the sun! Try to spend only 30 minutes to 1 hour in the sun. UV radiation is at its highest between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm so be careful during those times! 
  4. Wear SUNGLASSES and a HAT!!! You do not want to become blind because you were staring into the sun or get skin cancer because you weren’t wearing a hat!!  

I spent only 2 hours playing tennis and this is what happened! Please be mindful if you are going to tan!

Myth: You’ll eventually outgrow acne.

Fact: If only that were true, lots of people’s skin-care struggles in life would have been very different. In fact, women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and even 50s can have acne just like teenagers, and the treatment principles remain the same.
Not everyone who has acne as a teenager will grow out of it, and even if you had clear skin as a teenager, there’s no guarantee that you won’t get acne later in life, perhaps during menopause. You can blame this often
maddening inconsistency on hormones! What is true is that men can outgrow acne, because after puberty men’s hormone levels level out, while women’s hormone levels fluctuate throughout their lifetime, which is why many women experience breakouts around their menstrual cycle. What about the association between acne and food, stress, and over-cleaning your face?
