Plants to use for a natural tan

If you are looking to get a natural and healthy tan , know that certain plants can help you. Here are some examples of plants you can use to stimulate your tan:

  1. Aloe Vera : This plant is known for its hydrating and soothing properties, but did you know it can also help prepare skin for tanning? Indeed, aloe vera is rich in vitamin C and fatty acids, which help prepare the skin for exposure to the sun. You can apply aloe vera gel to your skin before going out in the sun to help stimulate the production of melanin, the pigment that colors the skin.

  2. Shea : Shea butter is another popular natural ingredient in tanning products . It is rich in vitamins A and E, which help protect the skin against damage caused by UV rays, while nourishing and hydrating the skin. You can apply shea butter to your skin after a day in the sun to help restore moisture and keep your skin soft and supple.

By incorporating these herbs into your tanning routine , you can stimulate your skin's natural tanning process while protecting it from damage caused by UV rays.

Foods for a natural and lasting tan

If you're looking to get a natural, long-lasting tan, know that what you put on your plate can also play an important role. Indeed, certain foods are rich in nutrients that help stimulate melanin production, while protecting the skin. Here are some examples of foods to include in your diet for a natural and long-lasting tan :

  1. Sweet potatoes : This vegetable is rich in beta-carotene, a nutrient that helps stimulate melanin production. Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins A and C, which help protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays.

  2. Eggs : Eggs are rich in vitamin D, a nutrient that is essential for healthy skin. Vitamin D helps stimulate melanin production, while strengthening the skin's natural barrier.

Our tips for a natural and long-lasting tan

A natural, long-lasting tan is something many of us strive to achieve. If you too dream of golden, sun-kissed skin without resorting to self-tanners or tanning booths, you've come to the right place! Here are some tips for a natural and long-lasting tan:

Before you begin your tanning process, it is important to exfoliate your skin to remove dead cells and help stimulate melanin production. Use a gentle face and body scrub once a week to prepare your skin for tanning.

Avoid exposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Try to get out in the sun early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid sunburn.

When you're out in the sun, your skin loses moisture and can become dry and dull. Make sure to hydrate your skin by drinking plenty of water and using a body and face moisturizer after sun exposure.

Tanning or skin gummies are dietary supplements that contain natural ingredients to help stimulate the tanning process and hydrate your skin before UV exposure. The Sublime Bronz' Bio Gummies from Santarome Bio are composed of Carrot and Tomato, plants rich in carotenoids which color your skin and give you a beautiful summer complexion. Be careful, however, to always use appropriate sun protection.
