How do I prepare my skin before sunbathing?

We usually tell you to avoid tanning, because the sun’s effects on the skin cause us cosmetologists work. We know from experience that it’s hard to stop you from lying on the beach. That’s why we’ve prepared some good tips on how to prepare before sunbathing to do as little harm to yourself as possible.



The basic preparation of the skin for the sun is not different from daily care. The sun exposes the skin to dryness, so we remind you to moisturize your body after every bath or shower. On a day-to-day basis, lotions will be enough for you, but when you’re suffering from particularly bothersome dryness, it’s worth reaching for a greasier solution in the form of body butter. Rich in cosmetic oils, the butters provide hydration in the deeper layers of the epidermis and help rebuild the hydrolipid barrier of our skin.

Don’t forget to moisturize your neck and décolleté as well! These parts are sometimes overlooked because we don’t think about them with the face or the whole body.


Before you head to the beach, we also recommend taking care of a full-body scrub to help remove lingering dead skin. It is guaranteed to improve the quality of the skin, which, refreshed, simply looks better. Attention! Excess dead skin can make you tan unevenly.

What to give up before tanning?


Before going on vacation, where you expect a lot of sun exposure, check the compositions of your cosmetics – both face and body. If you find retinoids or any of the hydroxy acids on the label, you’d better put this product away for the summer. Even if you like its effects – which we don’t doubt – it makes the skin thinner and thus more sensitive to the negative effects of the sun.


Any cosmetologist will tell you this, but just in case, we also remind you – you cannot undergo treatments such as dermabrasion, laser hair removal, chemical peels and laser vascular removal before tanning. They make the skin sensitive and prone to discoloration and burns.

Work from within

Preparing for tanning is not just about skin care. It is necessary to act from within. For proper hydration of the body, creams are not enough. We should take in at least 2l of water a day regardless of the season.

As for your diet, you should eat orange and red fruits and vegetables; tomatoes, peppers, carrots, pumpkins, oranges, peaches and apricots. In addition, we recommend eating at least a few nuts every day and regularly – though not necessarily every day – fish. These are products rich in beta-carotene, lycopene, unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins A and E, elements that strengthen the hydrolipid barrier of our skin, improve its appearance, firm it and protect it from free radicals.


Sacha butter – face and body butter containing in its composition the most valuable vegetable oils in cosmetology. In professional spas, sacha butter is used for massage. With five unique fragrances, everyone is guaranteed to find their favorite.

NMF xpress cream – a deeply moisturizing cream for year-round use. It can handle even the driest skin, and its light, fast-absorbing texture makes it a great day cream. It also works well as a base for makeup.
