Having fun in the sun is thought to be an essential part of summer. However, spending time in the sun results in the extreme tanning and burning of the skin, due to the sun’s powerful UV rays. This can sometimes result in a permatan. A permatan is a tan that is notoriously difficult to get off the skin. It can be caused by prolonged sun exposure, as well as frequent tanning bed usage.
Treatment for permatans take time and patience, as it can be quite difficult to reduce the appearance of them. Firstly, make sure to cleanse and exfoliate to speed up the process of shedding the permatanned dead skin cells. Then, use brightening treatments for both the face and body to help even out skin tone. This will help return your skin to its original tone. Finally, be sure to finish your routine with a quality sunscreen. Sunscreen of at least SPF 30 will help you maintain your results. While using this skin brightening routine, you should try to avoid direct sun exposure, as it can halt and reverse any progress you’ve made with your skin.
Lessening the appearance of a permatan can seem like a daunting task, but with the right routine, it can be executed successfully.
