How to Prevent Wrinkles when Using Tanning Beds

Everytime you hit a tanning bed, you need to take certain precautions to make sure your tan lasts long and your skin looks its best. If you’re a frequent tanner, it’s important to give your body what it needs to prevent your skin from drying out and prevent wrinkles,  so you can always flaunt a beautiful, healthy tan.

Nourish Your Skin from the Inside Out

Keeping a healthy diet will always help you keep your skin looking beautiful. Adding healthy fats, like avocado, coconut oil and fish, which contain omega-3 fats, helps keep your hair and skin in great condition. Add these in moderation to your meals.

Drink Water to Keep Skin HydratedKeep Yourself Hydrated

Water, water, water. This wonderful substance aids in keeping skin plump and hydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water every day, and by ‘plenty’ we mean about 10 to 12 glasses daily.

Always, Always Apply Tanning Lotion

Capital sin number one when tanning in a sunbed is not applying tanning lotion. Even in a controlled UV environment, like a tanning bed, you need something to protect your skin. Tanning lotions contain nourishing ingredients that prevent skin damage. Make sure you apply tanning lotion every time you tan in a sunbed.

Don’t Skip the Goggles

The standard goggles for tanning beds are usually smaller in size. Going for larger than the standard ones will help you better protect the skin around your eyes, which is a particularly sensitive area.

Moisturizing Should Be Part of Your Routine

Keep your moisturizing game on point by applying moisturizer to your face and body in the morning and evening, every day. Shea butter moisturizers are a good option for the body, and for the face, make sure you choose something specifically designed for that purpose. Depending on your age, using an anti-aging moisturizer is preferred.
