Heading to the Dead Sea was out of the question (and preferably by early summer days and spring times), as it'll be too hot and will dehydrate my skin along the way. So I committed to the pools around me, avoiding the sun in times after 10 am, and would continue after 4 pm, when the sun is at its least damaging effects, using Lancaster Tan Deepener under very low sun intensities. I have olive skin, so it helps me get deeper tan in little time, and gradually. Preparing my skin with Trinity natural exfoliating Dead Sea salt scrub with orange skin, so I would remove dead skin for the newer skin to develop an even tan. I would use it every other week, during the tanning period, as it contains Neroli oil, known to help skin cell regeneration and improves skin elasticity, and prolongs the skin's radiance. Note that exfoliating or scrubbing off will scrape off your tan gradually, as it's on the surface of skin
Tanning is all about relaxing too, that feeling when the soft light full of vitamin-D hits your skin is refreshing. The amount of hours I expose my skin to the sun are very little, so building the tan gradually was the healthiest choice, prolonging it by taking Oenobiol tanning enhancing dietary supplements, which contains tomato extracts, gearing up by also taking Wild Salmon Fish Oil Complex, constantly moisturizing and using self-tanners. Gurelain upped the ante with its Terracotta Sunless Tinted Self-Tanning Gel, enriched with 100% natural Moroccan Argan oil, creating an instant glow free of streaks.
Now spending my summer days, doing outdoorsy sports with friends, shielding the bad rays away using a sunblock not less than 45, and listening to so-called summer hits. Summer have its mood on you, it casts a spell, especially here in Jordan, where the temperature is balanced, feeling the breeze, feeling the heat… seeping the positivity that associate the season throughout its days. Your whole routine changes, your skin care regime flips 90 degrees, your mood even. While a lot of my Danish friends confess to me about the country's bad mood and down-runs due to its crucial winter days, and how the whole mood changes in the summer days. Leaving them beaming and helplessly cheery!
That 70's Shorts: Relax on your car's roof, while sun bathing in the south. Show off your tan when wearing a short-short 1970's inspired. If there's one decade that universally boosts mood, it's the seventies. Go shorter this season, and don't be afraid to strut. Commit to the era's most likely-hood with the flower power! Peace...
