Get Rid Of Summer Tan
Whether they just prefer their natural skin tone, have already effectively reached the perfect tan they were seeking to attain, or have a different reason, avoiding a tan can be desirable at some time or the other. And, the dislike for tan should not mar our love for the outdoors, right!
It Is Possible To Avoid A Tan Even If You Are Outdoors Experts assert that barely 15 minutes in the sun without sun block can get you tanned and therefore, avoiding a tan can seem difficult. Big hats and sunglasses benefit, as do clothing that safeguards the skin from the sun. But even these may not help avoid a tan completely. There are a few tips and tricks though, that could help balance the natural tone of one's skin.
Avoid sun exposure The best way to avoid a suntan is to avert sun exposure. Avoid stepping out in direct sunlight between 10 am and 4 pm in the afternoon, during which the rays of the sun are the strongest. You can also calculate how much you are getting exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays by using the shadow rule: When your shadow is longer than you, it means UV exposure is minimal; a shadow that is shorter shows that UV exposure is maximum.
Other ways to guard yourself from the sun include wearing protective clothing, such as:
· Wide-rim hats preferably with 4 inches (10 cm) brims that cover your neck, ears, eyes, and scalp.
· Sunglasses with UV ray defense, to prevent eye damage.
· Loose-fitting, tightly woven cotton clothing that covers your arms and legs.
· Clothing made with sun protective fabric. These clothes have a distinct label that tells you how active they are in protecting your skin from ultraviolet rays.
Sun Block Is A Good Way To Prevent Tanning
Perhaps the best way to avoid a tan is to use sunblock. Also, as we grow older the oestrogen decreases and therefore using a sunscreen which moisturizes the skin always helps. Be sure to apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher, 20 minutes before stepping into the sun, which is about how long it takes for the skin to sop up sunscreen before you head out of the door!

Above all, be practical. If you use any form of sunscreen, it has to be reapplied after a certain period. Sweat, water, and wind help fade your protection, and you will still tan if the defensive product is not re-applied. Read the label of any sun block, and research to find out when they should be re-applied and what they are defenceless against.
