The sunny weather in Sunshine Coast enables you to say hello to a naturally glowing, sun-kissed skin no matter what time of the year. More and more people have come to realise the long list of benefits of sporting a tan. Besides getting that fresh and vibrant look, you also cheat your way into looking a few pounds lighter.

If you are opting for a self-tanning session soon, be sure to read on for some tips first because in most cases, self-tanners wind up overdoing their sessions. Before you hit the scenic stretches of Sunshine Coast, here are some reminders:

Prep your skin by clearing its surface. Exfoliate your skin first. Use a sponge or a loofah and begin gently scrubbing your skin to remove dead skin cells. Doing so will make for a smooth, even, and longer lasting tan. Some recommend waxing hairs too because, in  most cases, hair gets in the way of achieving evenly tanned skin.

Say no to makeup and deodorants. Do away with makeup, body sprays, deodorants, and perfumes because these formulas contain chemicals that may have adverse effects onto your skin while exposed to the sunlight.

Instead, shield yourself with sunscreen. Sun protection formula (SPF) technology is present in today’s lotions, hair conditioners, lip balms, and after-sun lotions. These help protect your skin and hair from the sun’s harsh rays. Evenly slather these products onto your skin and hair before heading out.

Tan in moderation. The sun is a natural source of Vitamin E, that’s why sunbathing in the morning is a good way to get your dose of Vitamin E. However, staying outdoors beyond 10AM unprotected can cause terrible sunburns and, in the long run, premature ageing. Soak up the sun for a good 20 minutes only. If you are still not satisfied with your complexion, you may repeat your sessions several times a week until your desired complexion is achieved.

There you go; we hope these reminders are enough to help you perfect your self-tanning attempts this season.
