Do you have very white skin? You must be extra vigilant in the summer and must protect yourself to avoid burns during the exposure. And to tan well, it is necessary to prepare your skin upstream.
The clearer the skin, the less melanin it produces. But its role is to protect us naturally from UV radiation. Indeed, during prolonged exposure, the body produces melanin, which results in tanning, to protect the skin cells’ DNA from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Hence a slower tan in fair skin and increased sensitivity to sunlight. So you have to bet on a gradual and smooth tan.
UPSTREAM, PREPARE YOUR SKIN FROM THE INSIDE
From the spring, or at least 1 month before the first exposures, opt for a course of nutritional supplements in the form of capsules participating in the physiological maintenance of the skin. Bioderma Photoderm Bronz Oral capsules combine vitamins E and C with copper that promote the normal functioning of the immune system and the natural pigmentation of the skin while protecting it from oxidative stress.
DURING THE EXHIBITION, BET ON A VERY HIGH SUNSCREEN
Fortunately there are very high sun protection that stimulate the production of melanin and thus promote natural tanning. This is the case of BIODERMA Photoderm Bronz dry oil which exists in SPF 30 and even 50 to suit the clearest and most intolerant skin. This dry oil also prevents premature aging of the skin and applies as well to the face and body as on the hair. As a bonus, it lays a satin veil and leaves no white trace.
