The secret for a long-lasting golden tan for this summer!

Everyone wants to come back with a beautiful tan after a holiday. One of the biggest myths about tanning lotion is that people think you won’t get a tan if you use it. The opposite is true actually.  Sunscreen is a mustSpending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. That’s why it’s so important to use tanning lotion that protects your skin plus it hydrates and it’s giving you a more beautiful tan that will last longer. So don’t skip the SPF just because it isn’t a beach day!
I make sure I re-apply numerous times throughout the day. At least one ounce of sunscreen should be applied every two hours for adequate coverage. My advise is to use a moisturizer on your face with at least SPF 20 or even SPF 30! Don’t forget your neck, hands and ears!

But there are so many tanning lotions out there that it’s difficult to pick the the right one.
We have tested a few and this is our top 4 for this summer for a beautiful tan!
1. Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50 Sunscreen
Price: €42,25


I pretty much use only Dermalogica as I have fallen in love with their cleansing line.

I already use a face moisturizer with SPF but never tried their sunscreens.
The first time when I tried this sunscreen was back in February during my trip in Malaysia. I must tell you that Dermalogica is not only great for cleansing, but also for th sun protection. What a great cream! The smell, the texture…. Love it!

This sunscreen helps to neutralize damage and bind moisture to skin without a greasy after-feel. This is a great choice for those of you who suffer from dry skin.

2. Ladival Sensitive Skin Spf 30 High

I received this product via an agency to try it out in Portugal. My skin can easily gets irritated by some sunscreens and the products of Ladival are for those with a very sensitive skin. Time to test! The first thing what I always do is smell on the sunscreen.. All products of Ladival are free from perfume, colourants, preservatives and emulsifiers and therefore they don’t smell that strong.
