How To Survive Summer If You’re Pale
Being pale is no easy fit when it comes the summertime. You burn easy, you get freckles, and you definitely stand out among all the tan people. Well, while you can help that last one with self-tanning methods, the first two issues still stand.
SPF, Lots of It
Regardless of whether you self-tan or stay pale, you have to protect delicate pale skin with strong +50 spf protection, if you don’t want to risk a bad burn or melanoma. The thing with pale skin is that it lacks melanin, the pigment that our bodies produce naturally in response to solar radiation to protect it from further damage. So be sure to apply no less than three tablespoons or 1,5 oz for the face and body every two hours.
Hats & Clothes
Even if you think that you’re wearing the strongest SPF protection there is, it’s still not enough to filter out all radiation, so here is where a wide-brim hat or light clothes can provide extra protection. It’s good to have an umbrella or a thick hat to cover up your face, especially if you don’t have the time to reapply sunscreen every two hours.
If you want a tan but lotions and sprays look too dark and unnatural on you, try oils with bronzers in them, as they tend to be more transparent and naturally soothe and moisturize the skin. Just don’t go sunbathing wearing them even if they say the have SPF. Firstly, the spf factor in such products is too low (as low as 4) and secondly, the better the sunblock the less tan you will be. That’s just how it works.
