With summer just two months away, it’s time to start planning your bronze, so get your base tan now. It’s going to take a little time to develop just the right amount of color that will last. The benefits are many but we’ll cover the most pressing issues of skin preservation, color control, and tan maintenance here.
Why Get A Base Tan?
- A base tan helps protect my skin from sunburn and damage. This is only true by way of adding a minimal skin protectant. Scientific American states that “A base tan only provides an SPF, or sun protection factor, of 3 or less, according to the U.S. surgeon general.” While clothing provides an SPF of up to 7, apply additional topical products to protect the skin from the damages of prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays.
- A base tan helps me to gradual darken my skin without the short-term effects of fast tanning or painful effects of prolonged sun exposure. Sun tanning is a risky and sometimes time-consuming pursuit. Although any excessive tanning requires you to proceed with caution, the slow darkening that occurs when developing a base tan doesn’t allow for the typical redness that accompanies painful skin damage, according to Wise Geek. So remembering to apply topical treatments and to wear protective clothing, as directed by the Skin Cancer Foundation, throughout the spring and summer will protect against most UVA/UVB threats.
- A base tan regimen can help me to maintain a consistent bronze once summer arrives. Professional tanning provides the convenience that sunning on the beach or by the pool does not. It’s mostly to prevent any dependency on the uneven, unpredictable natural sun tan while providing your skin with a gradual sun-kissed glow.
