Prepare your skin before exposing it to the summer sun

Summer is approaching, and with it, the irresistible desire to bask in the sun to obtain that golden tan you so desire. However, it is essential to be wary of sunburn which can occur quickly during the first exposures.

To avoid these inconveniences, here are our valuable tips for best preparing your skin for the sun, the summer season and tanning.

Yes, before exposing yourself to UV rays, a little preparation is necessary!

Here are the 5 essential steps to follow before basking in the sun:

  • Step 1: Take care of your diet (K-3)
  • Step 2: Exfoliate your skin with a scrub (M-2)
  • Step 3: Deeply moisturize your skin (M-2)
  • Step 4: Gradually expose yourself to the sun (D-30)
  • Step 5: Never without my sun protection! (H-1)

1. Take care of your diet

Eat a diet rich in vitamins C, E and beta-carotene

To obtain an optimal tan, choose a diet rich in vitamins C, E and beta-carotene. These vitamins promote healing of the skin, fight against cellular aging and prevent sunburn. They are rich in antioxidants and anti-free radical agents.


This vitamin in particular is known to prepare the skin for the sun by stimulating the production of melanin, responsible for skin pigmentation. Opt for foods like raw organic carrots, fruits and vegetables such as melon, spinach, mango, dried apricots and tomatoes.

Include food supplements

Dietary supplements can prepare your body for sun exposure by providing essential nutrients to protect your skin from sun damage. Some promote the production of melanin, responsible for tanning, while others strengthen the skin's natural defenses against solar aggression.

Some supplements are specifically designed for tanning, containing more moisturizers and antioxidants, such as those made from carrot. Start taking these dietary supplements approximately 3 to 4 weeks before sun exposure.

2. Exfoliate your skin with a scrub

Opt for a natural and organic scrub

Exfoliating is an essential step to prepare your skin for the sun and obtain an even, long-lasting tan. It helps eliminate dead cells from the surface of the epidermis, thus restoring radiance to your skin. In addition, it promotes the penetration and effectiveness of moisturizing care. By using certified organic scrubs or creating your own scrub with organic ingredients, you are giving your skin the best.

Nohèm advice on body scrub

Exfoliating can weaken the epidermis, so it is preferable to opt for gentle products, containing natural, slightly abrasive exfoliating particles and adapted to your skin type. Also wait at least a day before moderate exposure to the sun.

It is recommended to exfoliate once or twice a week.

3. Moisturize your skin

Hydrating the skin is essential to protect it from external aggressions, particularly the sun. Before exposure, hydrate your skin with appropriate care and by drinking enough water. Well-hydrated skin becomes softer, supple and resistant to the sun.

Start moisturizing your skin at least 15 days before sun exposure for optimal protection. Also increase your daily water intake, as staying hydrated is crucial for your skin health.

4. Expose yourself to the sun gradually

For a harmonious and risk-free tan, expose yourself to the sun gradually. Start with short exposures, then gradually increase their duration. Particularly avoid exposure between noon and 4 p.m., the period when the sun is most intense.

Overexposure during these hours or over a long period increases the risk of sunburn. Don't forget to regularly apply an organic and natural sunscreen for optimal protection.

5.Use appropriate sun protection

It is crucial to use sun care adapted to your skin type and respectful of your health, both for preparative care and for sun protection. Opt for sun protection with an SPF 30 or SPF 50 index from the start of exposure, and avoid waiting for prolonged exposure to protect your skin.

Choose quality cosmetic products, preferably organic and natural

You are now ready to face the sun! Your tanned complexion for this summer is assured, all you have to do is take your water bottle, your hat and your most beautiful sunglasses!
