TANNING: TRUE OR FALSE?

It’s about time to solve some doubts about tanning!

YOU DON’T GET TAN USING HIGH SPF ...❌ FICTION !

High SPF only makes your tan last longer : the time needed for tanning is a little longer, but this is fundamental to make our skin able to respond properly to the sun!

If you look for a fast and fantastic tan, do not give in to temptation to expose your skin in the warmest hours, between 12pm and 4pm, without sunscreens… you will only get the terrible lobster-effect !

Instead, boost your tan using the right products that intensify the natural process of skin pigmentation, like SU Tan Maximizer! Start using it 1 or 2 weeks before the sun exposure beneath your hydrating cream, to reinforce your skin defenses, and continue with its application during the days of the exposure beneath your sunscreen. It stimulates the natural melanin production and, associating it to the right sunscreen, gives you a faster, uniform and last-longing tan!

YOUR HAIR DOES NOT NEED TO BE PROTECTED BY THE SUN...❌FICTION !

Your hair needs protection from UV rays, which make your hair dried, fragile and dull!

The sun, in one word, “dries”, eliminates the water: the hair gets bleached and looses color (natural and cosmetic).

How to protect it? It is fundamental, to use a protective conditioner every time we get out in the sun; such as SU Hair Milk which creates a protective film that preserves color, softness and hydration. It should be reapplied any time we get out of the water in order to avoid the sun ruining the hair structure!

To cleanse both hair and skin, choose an extra delicate product, such as SU Hair & Body Wash which eliminates salt and chlorine without drying and attacking it.

After the shampoo, what your hair needs is a super hydrating and rich mask such as SU Hair Mask, which that gives back luminosity even to the dullest and most opaque hair! You can even apply SU Hair Mask before the shampoo, leaving it on from 10 minutes to an hour, for a boost of hydrations!

Finally, apply again SU Hair Milk to hydrate, nourish and detangle the hair.

THE SPF FACTOR INDICATES HOW MANY TIMES YOU CAN MULTIPLY THE TIME PASSED IN THE SUN BEFORE GETTING BURNED....✔FACT!

Sunscreens prolong the time we can pass under the sun without getting burned.

For example, a product with SPF6, let’s us stay in the sun without getting burned, 6 times longer than those of an exposure without SPF in the same conditions.

THE LONGER WE STAY IN THE SUN, THE MORE TANNED YOU BECOME... ❌FICTION !

The melanin production of each one of us has a physiological limit and depends on phototype. Further exposure leads skin to risks and damage in the short and long term! Even if during the day you have limited amount of time in the sun, always apply an after sun cream, such as SU Aftersun, to sooth and elasticize your skin and restore its natural hydrolipidic film.

I CAN AVOID USING SUNSCREENS UNDER A BEACH UMBRELLA...❌FICTION!

More than 90% of UV rays penetrate the thick clouds. The sand reverberates 45% of UV rays, and the “lens” reflecting effect is around 30% on grass and 10% on water…. Never forget your sunscreen!
