Things to do this summer
Summer is a particular time. Everyone tries to live a bright and eventful life. The days are getting longer; many people have a well-deserved vacation, and more free time needs to be taken in some unique way. You can make your list of hundreds of summer things, but we suggest starting with these:
1. Go on a spontaneous journey
All adventures begin with a spontaneous decision. A tour around the country, a weekend on the Cote d'Azur, or an unexpected visit to your beloved grandmother in the village - no matter what it will be, the main thing is to do everything quickly and without delay.
2. Walk all night long
What would summer be without long walks under the stars? The light of lanterns, deserted streets, and rare cars - feel the romance of a big city.
3. Kissing in the rain
Naturally, no romantic movie is complete without a kiss in the rain. If a downpour takes you by surprise, do not be discouraged, but seize the moment.
4. Try a new dish
Summer is always a new experience. Be sure to try the local cuisine if you're on a trip, or stop by a restaurant near your home and order a dessert you've never eaten before.
5. Help a stranger
Even if you do not believe in karma, memories of a good deed will warm your soul for a long time. Besides, perhaps a stranger is your destiny?
6. Write a letter
Send a postcard to a friend or write a letter to yourself in the future.
7. Read a new book
Have you been postponing War and Peace for a long time? Or are you still not going to read Zhadan's latest collection? Take action!
8. Try a Rooftop Picnic
What could be more romantic than a rooftop? Now some companies are ready to help organize parties and dates on the most enviable rooftops of the city.
9. Get lost in Paris
This is a classic.
10. Change your image
Admit it, you always dreamed of being in the place of a girl from a movie who leaves the salon with perfect styling and high heels, and passers-by turn around after her.
11. Run on a deserted beach
Yes, it's a stamp. But it’s also an excellent opportunity to feel like “the same girl from the movie.”
12. Throw a coin into the fountain to return
The main thing is to believe.
13. Play a friend
14. Light up at a noisy party
Dancing at the bar, summer cocktails, and good music - everything seems more straightforward and more fun in summer.

It is better if the whole company gathers you.
20. Realize your old dream
Dig into your memories, re-read your wish list and act!
21. Do something stupid
Sing songs, laugh, splash water, and draw on the pavement. As Exupery said: " All adults were children at. First, only a few of them remember this."
22. Spend a day at home
Our scenario: a blanket, ice cream, and Bridget Jones's Diary. You can come up with your own. The main thing is to prepare in advance and stock up on goodies for the whole day.

All parts of "Harry Potter" or "Sex and the City." Arrange a retrospective evening and revisit your favorite films.

Gifts from the former, a broken powder box, old papers, and 100 more items of unnecessary things - it's time to say goodbye to them.
25. Saying “Yes” all day
Like that movie with Jim Carrey, remember how it all ended?
26. Spend a day without any means of communication
No phone, internet, TV, or tablet. Scary? Consider it a test of endurance.
27. Review family records
A great way to spend time with family and remember the funniest childhood moments.
28. Arrange a photoshoot
In every summer movie, there is a moment when a group of friends takes a selfie. Do not miss the opportunity to take a photo for memory ...
29. Print summer photos
30. Look through a telescope
Seeing the Moon and the Milky Way up close is what you need to do in the summer. In August, the stars always fall! It is best to do astronomy outside the city - the night sky is better seen there.
You will be surprised, but volunteer work is not free. It’s just that it’s not paid for with money but with impressions. Volunteering at an equestrian club can interact with horses and maybe even ride. And volunteers at the stadium will be able to watch football for free. Find out where helpers are needed in your city!
32. Find a summer job if you are 14 years old.

"You look great!" It doesn't cost anything to cheer someone up.
35. Walk 30,000 steps in a day.
It's not as much as it seems. Just go for a walk wherever your eyes look.
36. Walk barefoot on the grass.
The list of things to do in the summer would be incomplete without this. A trifle, but pleasant and good for health!
37. Measure time with a sundial
Anyone can make a sundial, but one cannot tell the time from it.
39. Cooking food on a campfire is a thing that needs to be done in the summer.
While studying, such an opportunity is given infrequently.

Another thing to do in summer is it doesn't feel the same as winter.
41. Make a home shadow theater.
Make up a story, cut out characters from cardboard, and put on a show.

Have a "digital detox" with friends - walk, chat, and have fun, but do not touch phones and computers. The world will be a little different, we guarantee!

The best is the outdoors. Have fun, enjoy the views from above and test your skill.
44. Arrange a board game championship.
A great occasion to gather offline friends and have a fun evening.
45. Participate in a flash mob.
Such events bring together and give a lot of positive emotions.
46. Go on an expedition.
It is not necessary to climb Everest - you can choose a forest nearby, come up with tasks, distribute roles in a team and go on an adventure.
47. Participate in the quest.
Now they are held in every city. Choose the most exciting one, and organize it yourself if you don’t find anything to your liking!
48. Organize a race of homemade boats made of paper, bark, and anything that floats.

13. And the country gained complete independence on October 27, 1979, by the constitution drawn up in September 1978 in London. In the same year, 1979, the Labor Party, which won the parliamentary elections, formed a government.

1. The Best thing
The squirrel, a species with the scientific name Sciurus, is an animal from the Sciuridae family, of which partridges and marmots are part. About 30 species of squirrels are known worldwide; the red squirrel is found most often in our country. The squirrel has a head-to-body length of 19-23 cm, a tail of 15-20 cm, and a weight of 250-340 g. Males and females are the exact sizes. The red squirrel is smaller than the gray squirrel, which has a head-to-body length of 25-30 cm and weighs between 400 and 800 grams. The long tail helps the squirrel balance and turn when it jumps from tree to tree, runs along the branches, and keeps them warm during sleep.

4. It Makes sense
In the early years of Egyptian history, the bodies of pharaohs passed into the afterlife were kept in pyramids, massive stone structures built on the edge of the desert near the Nile. The pyramids were both royal tombs and religious temples, where the spirit - of "ka" - of the dead pharaoh would be worshiped.
The pyramids at Giza, on the west bank of the Nile, south of Cairo, were built of huge blocks of limestone and granite, each block weighing more than two tons. It is still a mystery how these giant stones were erected in the construction of the pyramids, especially since at that time, 4000 years ago, there were no machines and engineering methods to transport such weights. It is said that human force contributed the most to these incredible constructions. But there are many more mysteries that revolve around the pyramids of Giza.
Of all these, the Pyramid of Cheops, also called the Great Pyramid, aroused the most interest among historians, mathematicians, and archaeologists.
One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the only one still standing, the Great Pyramid was built between 2700 and 2500 BC. For 43 centuries, until 1889, when the Eiffel Tower was built in Paris, it had to be the tallest building in the world, measuring 139 meters in height.

8. Red pandas
The red panda is a small mammal with a long, fluffy tail and red and white marks on its fur. Although its name reminds us of the panda bear, these species are not closely related. The word "panda" was first given to these animals, not the larger black and white bear. The red panda is similar in size to the regular house cat. They are 51 to 66 centimeters long from head to toe, and their tail adds another 25.4 to 51 cm. They weigh from 4.5 to 9 kilograms.
Red pandas have large round heads and short snouts with large, sharp ears. Their fur is reddish-brown, although their faces are mostly white, with reddish "tears" extending from the eyes to the corner of the mouth. These markings can help protect from sunlight. They have long, bushy tails with alternating red and white rings. The bottom helps them maintain balance as they climb trees. The long, sharp claws help them climb the highest branches to stay in the sun or eliminate predators.

Due to its unique climatic and geological conditions, Australia is known for its distinctive creatures. Although kangaroos, spiders, and poisonous snakes are common animals that come to mind when considering Australian wildlife, many other animals are native to the country. Here are ten different animals that can be found in Australia.
Australia is home to almost 10% of the Earth's biodiversity, making it one of the 17 countries with vibrant flora and fauna. About 80% of the animal species found in Australia are endemic and not found anywhere in the world.
The continent's marine life is as diverse as its terrestrial life - off the north-east coast of Australia is the largest coral reef (covering an area of over 344 thousand square kilometers), as well as a variety of vast species of mangroves and algae. These habitats are home to various iconic fish and marine life, such as dugongs and sea turtles.
However, climate change, habitat fragmentation for the development of Agriculture, and invasive species put the animal in a position of threat. Local conservation organizations, the community, and indigenous peoples are directing all efforts to develop and implement single-continent wildlife conservation strategies.

Chemistry is one of the sciences that profoundly impact our lives; the objects we use are made with the help of knowledge about their chemical composition. We must also add that this science can be used to understand and study much of the matter in the universe to which we have access because it is made up of atoms.
Chemistry studies matter, defined as anything that has mass and occupies space, as well as the changes it can undergo when subjected to different environments and conditions. Chemists try to understand the properties of matter, such as the mass or composition of a chemical element and how and why matter undergoes specific changes.
At the base of much matter is atoms, the smallest chemistry analysis unit. There are much smaller particles, but they are the object of study in some frontier fields or even of other sciences altogether.

Americans and Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving today. Usually an opportunity to reunite with family or friends, this year the holiday is affected by the sanitary measures required by the authorities in an attempt to stop the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are some things you may not know about this holiday.
1. The first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in Canada in 1578, when the English sailor Martin Frobisher arrived on Baffin Island with his crew. They celebrated with dinner the fact that they arrived safely at their destination.
2. From 1921 to 1930, Thanksgiving Day was combined with Armistice Day (now Remembrance Day), celebrated on November 11th. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October 1931, except in 1935, when there was a conflict between this holiday and the date of the general election.
3. In 1957, Thanksgiving became a national holiday. The Canadian parliament declared Monday the second of October as a day off to thank "for the abundant harvest with which Canada has been blessed."
4. Although federally recognized, Thanksgiving Day in Canada is not a day off in Prince Edward, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
5. Why is turkey eaten on this day? Nobody knows for sure. There are many theories about how the turkey became the predominant Thanksgiving meal, including the fact that this bird could be easily found and is large enough to feed a family.
6. 20.2 million turkeys are sold annually in Canada, according to Statistics Canada. The data is from 2018. A little over 390 million dollars are the annual revenues made by farms that grow turkeys.
7. On Thanksgiving 2019, 2.5 million whole turkeys were bought by Canadians, the equivalent of 39% of sales during the year, according to the Turkey Association.
8. But Thanksgiving is not the day to eat the most turkey. At Christmas 2019, 2.7 million turkeys were bought by Canadians, equivalent to 42% of annual sales, says the association mentioned above.
9. 64.3% of all cranberries consumed in Canada come from Quebec and 38.9% of apples consumed come from Ontario.
10. The United States celebrates Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November. One possible explanation is that the harvest season is earlier in Canada, due to the colder climate than in the United States.
11. At the first Thanksgiving meal, only spoons and knives were used. The reason why the fork was the great absence from the Thanksgiving dinner of 1621 was that the English Puritans had not brought it to American soil in 1620. It came into use only in the seventeenth century.
12. There is a presidential tradition, launched by President Truman in 1947, of sparing the life of a Thanksgiving turkey annually. Over time, tradition has come to count two birds rescued from slaughter by the most powerful man in the United States. Last year, President Obama rescued two birds, named Liberty and Peace, who will die a good death at a special center in Mount Vernon. Let's see this year which turkeys will pass the presidential test of luck.
13. Benjamin Franklin intended to proclaim the turkey as the national symbol of the United States of America. Fortunately for those who prefer the bald eagle, Thomas Jefferson opposed this idea.
14. Thanksgiving is not always celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November (the date set by Abraham Lincoln). In 1934, President Franklin Roosevelt decided to move the holiday to the last Thursday in November, in an attempt to bring it closer to the Christmas shopping season and thus bring more profit to merchants. However, the decision did not enjoy too much popularity from the citizens, being revoked in only 2 years.
15. According to a study by the National Turkey Association, Americans consumed 312,000 kg of turkey meat in 2007, the equivalent of the total weight of Singapore residents. Scary, isn't it?
16. Tradition causes the President of the United States to "grace" a turkey each year. Two are sent to him: one with the function of presidential turkey, the other with the function of vice-president turkey, a "reserve" turkey. If the first turkey fails to fulfill its role, the vice president turkey replaces him.
17. Every year, on Thanksgiving Day, the President of the United States, whether a Democrat or a Republican, makes time for this ceremony. A little funny, a little humor, a little warmth. A small detail through which people approach.
18.Thanksgiving is a day about "together". The children who go to college, hundreds of kilometers away, get in their cars and drive for a meal at home, with their families. With grandparents, great-grandparents, uncles and aunts, cousins they haven't seen in a long time. Events that bring families together are quite rare in a human life, usually weddings and funerals. But, Thanksgiving is an annual occasion to meet, to say goodbye, to "together". And the king of the Thanksgiving table is the turkey.
19. The turkey is a rock star during Thanksgiving. Everyone's talking about turkey. From cooks to economists.
20. The first national celebration of Thanksgiving in America was declared in 1775 by the Continental Congress. This was to celebrate the victory at Saratoga during the American Revolution. However, it was not an annual event. In 1863, two national days of Thanksgiving were declared.
21. In the seventeenth century, Thanksgiving was just an informal practice that was carried out by local members in which leaders declared when to organize the holiday.
22. Liberia is an African nation located in the western region. The country holds the celebration of Thanksgiving Day on the first Thursday of each month. It began in 1820 after the colonization of Liberia by black slaves freed from the United States.
23.Turkey, corn (or corn), pumpkin and blueberry sauce are symbols that represent the first Thanksgiving. These symbols are often seen on holiday decorations and greeting cards.
24. The use of corn meant the survival of the colonies. Flint corn is often used as a table or door decoration to represent the harvest and autumn season.
25. Sweet-sour blueberry sauce or blueberry jelly, which some historians claim was included in the first Thanksgiving holiday, is still served today. Blueberry is a small, sour berry. It grows in swamps or muddy areas of Massachusetts and other New England states.
26. Indigenous peoples used blueberries to treat infections. They used the juice to paint their carpets and blankets. They taught the settlers how to cook the beans with sweetener and water to make a sauce. Indigenous peoples called it "ibimi" which means "bitter berries". When the settlers saw it, they called it the "grain crane" because the grain flowers bent the stem and resembled the long-necked bird called the crane.
27. Grain is still grown in New England. However, very few people know that before the berries are put in bags to be sent to the rest of the country, each berry must jump at least four inches high to ensure that they are not overripe.
28. In 1988, a Thanksgiving ceremony with over 4,000 people took place at St. John the Divine Cathedral. Among them were the indigenous peoples who represented tribes from all over the country and the descendants of people whose ancestors had migrated to the New World.
29. Americans generally believe that their Thanksgiving is modeled on a 1621 harvest holiday, shared by English settlers (pilgrims) in Plymouth and the Wampanoag people. The American holiday is particularly rich in legend and symbolism, and the traditional fare of the Thanksgiving meal usually includes turkey, bread stuffing, potatoes, blueberries, and pumpkin pie. When it comes to car travel, the holidays are often the busiest of the year, as family members gather together.
30. Days of Thanksgiving in Canada also originated in the colonial period, coming from the same European traditions, in gratitude for safe travel, peace and abundant harvests. The oldest celebration took place in 1578, when an expedition led by Martin Frobisher organized a ceremony today in Nunavut to thank for the safety of its fleet. In 1879, Parliament established a national day of Thanksgiving on November 6; the date has varied over the years. Since 1957, Thanksgiving has been celebrated in Canada on the second Monday in October.
Summer is when you can lazily sunbathe, exposing your face to the sun's rays. It's time to swim, but you must pack your beach bag and get ready. A beach holiday is always wonderful, regardless of whether you are relaxing on the banks of your native country or near the Indian Ocean. Here is what you need to take to make your vacation more exciting and comfortable.
Things useful at the beach
Sunscreen is the most important thing. This is an absolute must-have for a beach holiday. For those who do not want to get the color of freshly cooked cancer and lie down until the end of the vacation/vacation with a temperature below 40. In addition, such creams protect the skin from the adverse effects of ultraviolet radiation, which provokes premature aging and the occurrence of cancer cells. The lighter the skin, the higher the protection index should be.
1. Tanning oil (not to be confused with point 0)
It will help you quickly get the desired chocolate shade. But remember that it can only be used when you are already well tanned.
As the name implies, they will protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet radiation (the main thing is that the lenses are polarized!) And help you feel like Agent Kay.
3. Selfie stick
No comments, just like.
4. Bottle of water
When relaxing on the beach, drinking plenty of water is necessary to protect the body from dehydration. And for taste, you can add a slice of lemon or a sprig of mint. So you get a great soft drink.
5. Cooler bag
Such a gadget will bring the level of your beach holiday closer from “like everyone else” to “#jaboheme.” It's so lovely after the next swim to drink item number 5.
Not vehemently impose your musical preferences on your neighbors (unfortunately, not everyone is ready to listen to Chopin's Sonata No. 2 in B-flat minor), but at the same time, not deny yourself listening to your favorite compositions.
7. Baby powder
A real-life hack. With it, you can quickly and easily clean your hands and feet from the sand. And how does it just work?
8. Large towel
In which it is so cozy to wrap up after swimming.
9. Second oversized towel/mat/bedding
To have something to lie on, basking in the sun.
It will help pass the time, especially if you are alone. Read what the hands did not reach during the working days. Take yourself back to Fitzgerald and Turgenev. Or you will uncover another universal conspiracy.
For those who want to stay in the news flow, trend analytics and follow fashion trends. And they are also convenient for covering your face while you sunbathe, lying on your back.
12. Ball, sports equipment
No matter how good it is to wallow all day on the beach and splash in the water, it would help if you also warmed up a little—Volleyball, frisbee, badminton. You can buy an inflatable ball and play, for example, water dodgeball. But basketball fans will have to be patient ...
13. Board games
Another way to update your beach holiday. An excellent pastime both in the city and in any other place. It doesn't matter what you prefer, Munchkin, Dixit, Elias, or good old cards and chess. Positive emotions are provided to you.
Who else to laugh with? And who will turn you over in time (if you fell asleep) to ensure an even tan, if not a friend? To be with someone, use paragraph 13.14. And smear point 1? And everything else will be able to guard your belongings while diving into the water.
15. Diving mask, fins
The underwater world is unique and distinctive. Watch him from the side. See how a small crustacean burrows into the sand or hides under a pebble, and watch the fish scurrying. Maybe you will find Atlantis?
16. Case for underwater filming or action camera
It is not necessary to be a professional photographer to share the beauty of the underwater world with others. Capture your memories for years or hit the likes on social media!
Protect your ears from water ingress and various kinds of infection. Just do not swim very far. Otherwise, you risk swimming behind the buoys and not hearing the displeased cry of the lifeguard.
18. Nose clip
It will help you not to swallow water while you dive with rapture.
If you still decide that earplugs are for wimps, then an ordinary balloon will help you get rid of water in your ears. It is enough to take a few breaths into the ball with your mouth while holding your nose with your free hand.
20. Insect spray
If you are relaxing on a stone or pebble beach, there is a high probability of injury. Yes, and in the grass and the sand, you can not notice, for example, a piece of glass left by negligent vacationers. To quickly treat the wound, it is enough to take peroxide, iodine, and a bandage with you. Do not forget that if you use any particular medicines, for example, for allergies, they should always be at hand.
22. Lip balm with SPF protection
Everyone knows that sunscreen should be applied to the body (we hope we have already convinced you of this). But most of us forget about lips. And oddly enough, the risk of cancer cells in this area is very high. Therefore, I do not think it can only be helpful for girls.
23. Air mattress
Enjoy that wonderful feeling when you lie on a mattress, rocked by the sea waves ... or carried away by the river current. Plus, it's an excellent alternative to a sunbed.
24. Inflatable pillow
Taking a sun lounger to read a book or take a nap comfortably is unnecessary. You can take a unique inflatable pillow with you.
25. Spray bottle
It will help refresh your face and body if you suddenly feel too lazy to get up to go for a swim.
26. Goggles for swimming
If you are into water sports, you have probably seen that all professional swimmers wear special goggles. In such a simple way, you will protect yourself from infection or salt (if you swim in seawater).
27. Portable charger
A handy item for any traveler. Staying connected in today's world is essential. If your smartphone has sat down at the most inopportune moment, the charger is a real lifesaver. And especially avid gadget lovers can find solar-powered modifications!
28. Zip-lock plastic packaging
Zip-lock plastic packaging allows you to repeatedly open and closes the bag, which is ideal for storing items afraid of moisture. For example, phone, money, or documents.
Excellent and very healthy snack. They will help to freshen up and satisfy your hunger a little. Well, the fact that fruits are solid vitamins has been known to everyone since childhood.
Let's single out a separate item since this root crop contributes to the production of keratin - a substance necessary for a long and even tan. Just do not overdo it. Otherwise, you will become more like a giant carrot instead of acquiring the desired bronze hue.
31. Garbage bag
A cultured person is cultured in everything. So he takes care that after him, the resting place remains clean.
If you still haven’t time to take a gripper bag with you and your favorite smartphone fell into the water, put it in a pack of rice because this cereal perfectly absorbs moisture. Well, pilaf can be cooked.
33. Umbrella or awning
If you are relaxing on a wild beach or do not want to pay for a sun lounger, an umbrella is a great way to create shade and not get burned in the hot sun.
In the era of smartphones, the famous question “but don’t tell me what time it is” ceases to be relevant. But, if you decide to relax on the beach without any means of communication in peace, or your mobile phone suddenly sits down, and you forget your portable charging device, the watch is irreplaceable.
Creates a pleasant breeze in hot weather.
A hat or cap will protect against sun and heat stroke and is a stylish accessory. Choose hats made from natural materials such as cotton, rayon, or straw.

40. Antibacterial wet wipes
Remember fruits? That's when they will come in handy for you. And in general, this is a vital thing in terms of hygiene.
41. Inflatable ring/arm sleeves/swimming board

45. Salt for hot corn
Applicable if the seller is greedy.
Even if you did not assume that you have the makings of an artist, do not be too lazy to take a small album with you. Nature is so beautiful and unique! Maybe the muse will come from a side you didn't expect. You don't have to show your masterpiece to anyone as a last resort.
Another way to pass the time and train your brain.

Everyone's favorite and the long-awaited holiday season have begun, the sea, sandy beaches, delicious fruits, and sunbathing. Everyone wants to relax in the sun, whether on a white sandy beach on the shores of the azure sea or a green lawn in the country. But does everyone know how to sunbathe correctly so as not to peel off the next day after spending a sleepless night in a moisturizer? Whatever you decide to get your tan, read on for our tips!
Tips for the best tan
Even though the sun has a beneficial effect on us (it increases the level of serotonin, stimulates the production of vitamin D, and strengthens the immune system), it still has its drawbacks: the risk of getting burned, aging prematurely or getting skin cancer. But all the disadvantages can be reduced to zero by following the simple rules for sunbathing.
Rule 1: Don't Forget Your Sunscreen
It would seem that everyone knows about it. However, how do you choose one that will protect your skin? Different creams provide different levels of protection, which is indicated by the SPF index.
The level of SPF (sun protection factor) determines the effectiveness of counteracting UV radiation on the skin treated with the cream. For example, if your cream has an SPF-20 index, you can get a UV dose without harm to health 20 times more than without using a protective agent. SPF only protects the skin from group B UV rays, which are dangerous for our health.
On sunscreen packages, SPF ranges from 2 to 50. It's essential to determine your skin type. Scientists identify six phototypes, read the descriptions and look for matches:
Phototype 1: people with blond hair, fair skin, and light eyes. Representatives of this type most often burn the sun. It is recommended to stay in the sun for no more than 15 minutes without protection. Creams with SPF-30 and above are suitable.
Phototype 2: people with blond or red hair, gray eyes, and fair skin, often with freckles. Recommended time in the sun: 20 - 30 minutes; creams with SPF-20, and then a minimum of SPF-10.
Phototype 3: people with dark hair, brown eyes, and swarthy skin. Recommended time in the sun: up to 40 minutes without additional protection. To prevent burns while tanning, you need to use creams with SPF-15 only after arriving on vacation and SPF-6 after three to four days.
Phototype 4: brunettes with dark eyes and swarthy skin. Such people often do not suffer from sunlight, but for prevention, it is better to use a cream with SPF-8.
5 and 6 phototypes: people with very dark (up to black) skin. They can spend much time in the sun without protection and only use moisturizers.
Have you identified your phototype? Excellent! However, it is essential to know the rules for applying sunscreen:
1. Apply 20 minutes before sunbathing.
2. Do not forget to reapply the cream according to the instructions.
Rule 2: tan gradually
If everything were simple, spend a few hours in the sun and immediately get the desired tan for the whole year! But don't even dream about it. As practice shows, adherents of this method most often suffer from the negative consequences of sunburn.
The dark pigment that gives our skin its brown color is called melanin. But besides providing shade to the skin, it has another vital function - a protective mechanism that protects the skin from UV rays! Melanin creates a protective barrier around skin cells that scatters dangerous UVB rays. That is why it is essential to accumulate melanin gradually: sunbathe on the first day for 10-15 minutes before lunch and 15-20 after. For a positive effect, add every day for 10 minutes, preventing the skin from reddening in the sun.
Rule 3: Prepare your skin for tanning
Before sunbathing, cleaning the skin of impurities and dead cells is essential. So it will be easier for her to accumulate melanin. You can do this with soft scrubs, a washcloth, or an exfoliating glove. But don't be zealous. It is enough to cleanse the skin in this way once a week and a half.
Rule 4: Don't be in the sun in the middle of the day
The more direct sunlight hits the skin, the more UV it receives. The maximum radiation falls on the time from 10:00 to 16:00. If the health of the skin and the body is dear to you, it is better not to show yourself in the sun at this time. Go outside at this time in light clothes with long sleeves.
It is safest to sunbathe before 10 am and in the evening after 4 pm.
Rule 5: protect the body from the inside
Don't worry; you don't need to eat sunscreen for this. To do this, some products help reduce the adverse effects of UV rays due to the high content of antioxidants. So what are these products:
- fatty fish rich in omega-3: mackerel, tuna, salmon.
- red and orange vegetables and fruits: tomatoes, peppers, oranges, apricots
- any cabbage: broccoli, leafy, cauliflower
- teas: green and black
In addition, there are products that, on the contrary, can increase the negative effect of the sun on the skin, for example, yogurt, cheese, or whole milk.
Rule 6: know the measure.
It makes no sense to sunbathe all day since the body stops producing melanin after 2-3 hours of exposure to the sun. So 4-5 hours in the sun will not give you a chocolate or bronze tan but will only increase the risk of skin damage.
Rule 7: take care of your skin after sunburn.
If you want to keep your tan for longer, do not forget to moisturize your skin after sunbathing. This is important because the body treats excess melanin as a wake-up call that signals damage to the skin. That is why he seeks to quickly get rid of the top tanned layer, making it drier. So it was easier for the body to eliminate damaged cells and exfoliate them.
Use moisturizing creams and lotions and wait with scrubs and rough washcloths.
Well, here are, perhaps, the basic rules that will provide you with the perfect tan!
First aid and treatment for sunburnt skin
From the first warm spring days to the beginning of autumn frosts, dressing as lightly as possible is pleasant to show a beautiful figure. Many spend weekends and vacations on the beach, taking their children with them, believing that sunbathing is suitable for their health. It has been established that exposure to the sun strengthens the immune system, promotes the production of vitamin D, and improves the condition of bone tissues. A soft golden or dark chocolate tan is associated with travel and adventure, holidays on the sea coast, and tropical islands.
But intense exposure to ultraviolet rays is not suitable for health. Sunburn is a protective reaction of the skin, leading to a change in its color. The coloring pigment melanin is produced in its lower layers to protect against ultraviolet radiation. With prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, skin photoagingaccelerates, wrinkles form faster, and the risk of developing neoplasms increases. Another danger of sun exposure is burnt skin. Pain for negligence will be a pain, peeling, or a general deterioration in well-being.
What to do if the skin is sunburned
You can get burned on the beach, walking around the city, working on an individual plot, etc. The sun gradually heats the skin and the head,d a person does not feel discomfort for a long time but notices redness, burning, and tightness when the skin is severely burned. Minor burns can be treated at home, but if blisters develop, see a doctor.
You must go into the room or the shade at the first sign of burning or overheating. If this is not possible, cover open areas of the body with clothes, a towel, or a thick cloth. Replenish the lack of fluid in the body. Drink clean, cool water or warm but not hot tea. To reduce discomfort, if there are no blisters, or open wounds, apply an after-sun cream or other emollient, such as Panthenol, to the skin. If the damage is minor, restoring the skin after a sunburn will take 3-5 days.
Signs of sunburned skin
To prevent deep burns, you must periodically check for burning signs in the sun. The first symptom is redness of the skin. Pain and another discomfort may not be felt. They show up later.
It is necessary to determine the degree of damage to the skin. If there is redness or mild pain but no blisters, you need to provide first aid, and the redness will pass after a few days. Perhaps the skin will begin to peel off. This is not dangerous but increases the risk of a second, more severe burn when exposed to the sun.
If blisters appear, you need to consult a doctor and treat them with anti-burn ointments, drugs that relieve inflammation and prevent infection. Treatment takes place under the supervision of a physician. Patients often have a fever, swelling, headaches, weakness, and palpitations.
If there are burns from sunburn, you need to get dressed and go into the shade or the room. A cool (but not cold) shower or a compress on the affected body parts will help relieve unpleasant symptoms. Cool and cleanse your skin. To quickly restore the damaged epidermis and prevent the appearance of blisters, and peeling, apply an anti-burn ointment with panthenol on it.
If blisters appear, cool the skin, wash with clean water without soap, apply an ointment, and then visit a doctor. He will prescribe a treatment to avoid infection of the wounds that appear after the blisters burst.
If a significant body surface is burned, a person has a fever, dizziness, palpitations, nausea, or vomiting; you need to give an antipyretic, anti-inflammatory drug (Nurofen or others) and quickly deliver it to a medical facility or call an ambulance. Sunburn can cause disturbances in the functioning of the cardiovascular system.
First aid for burns caused by ultraviolet radiation should be provided as soon as possible. But not always in the home first-aid kit; there are the necessary medicines. They can be replaced with folk remedies. To improve the general condition without antipyretics, you can drink cool black or green tea with lemon and mineral water if the temperature has risen slightly. You can apply a cool compress to your forehead.
To cool and soothe burned skin, you can make a gauze compress from excellent green tea, a decoction of parsley, chamomile, calendula, and oak bark. If the face turns red after going to the beach or walking on a sunny day, you can apply fresh cabbage leaves and chopped parsley to the burnt places and grease them with honey. They will help with minor burns and prevent peeling, and you will look good the next day. To reduce the risk of infection of burned areas and moisturize them, you can rub the skin with aloe leaves.
What not to do with sunburn
Complications after sunburn often arise due to improper treatment. So that they pass without consequences:
- do not apply ice to burned areas, do not take a cold shower - a sharp temperature drop will accelerate the development of the inflammatory process;
- do not puncture blisters with a needle or other sharp objects - this increases the risk of infection;
- do not wipe the skin with alcohol-containing solutions - it needs to be moisturized, and alcohol dries it, which will increase peeling;
- do not lubricate burned areas with olive, sunflower, or other vegetable oils - they form a greasy film, which prevents regular air exchange and natural cooling;
- if there are blisters, there are wounds, or acne - do not apply fermented milk products;
- do not use hard washcloths or peels to speed up exfoliation; you can injure the skin.
At this time, you need to soften it, moisturize, and protect it from ultraviolet radiation with sunscreen or tight clothes, do not use scrubs, or hard washcloths, do not go to the sauna, and do not take hot baths.
How to choose a cosmetic product that protects against ultraviolet radiation
Sun cream can have different levels of protection. SPF denotes it with various coefficients. For a walk around the city on a clear spring day, a cream with SPF 2-5 is enough. If you are going to be on the street for several hours (picnic, work in the garden), you need a remedy with SPF 5-10. For those with white skin prone to freckling, it is best to use sunscreen products that provide intense protection (SPF 20-30). If you vacation to a hotter region, take an SPF 50 cream with you, such as Avene cream. If you want to swim, use a waterproof product. Sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before leaving the house.
Choose products containing vitamins and antioxidants to look good on hot days and prevent the appearance of early wrinkles. They protect not only from ultraviolet rays but also take care of the skin.
How to choose creams after sunburn
To make the skin recover quickly after sunbathing, and look beautiful and fresh, use an after-sun cream or milk. It contains hydrants that replenish water in cells and soothing and softening ingredients that prevent flaking. To quickly pass minor burns, you can use not medicinal but cosmetics. It is convenient to use cosmetics that are available in the form of sprays, for example, Avene. By pressing the sprayer several times, you will evenly apply the product.
Sprays or creams are available that need to be rubbed with light massage movements for the face and body. It is better to purchase two products of the same brand: one for the front, where the skin is more delicate and demanding to care for, and the other for the body. Use them every time you go out in the sun to rehydrate and prevent photoaging.
After-sun cosmetics are available for different skin types. For oily, a lighter texture is needed; for dry, high hyaluronic acid content; for sensitive, aloe extract and other medicinal plants.
Prevention of sunburn
For the tan to look beautiful and there to be no burns, you need to dose your exposure to the sun. The best sunbathing is before 10-11 am and after 4-5 pm. Try not to go out in the sun between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wear wide-brimmed hats, peaked caps, or other head coverings to protect your face and body from direct sunlight. Do not forget about eye protection - sunglasses will help maintain vision and slow down the formation of wrinkles in the corners of the eyes.
On hot days, dress in loose, light-colored clothing made from natural fabrics. It reflects ultraviolet rays well and does not interfere with air exchange. If you have delicate, fair skin prone to sunburn, cover your shoulders and back, choose dresses, shirts, and long-sleeved T-shirts.
Drink more clean water and tea, but give up sugary carbonated drinks and coffee. They have a diuretic effect and accelerate the loss of moisture. And it is needed by the body to release sweat and naturally cool the skin.
Apply sunscreen regularly to exposed areas of your body, even if you have to walk down the street for a short time on a sunny day. At the beach, renew it every 2 hours and after swimming.
