Getting an all-over tan the natural way!

Finer warmer weather is just around the corner and many of us are already getting ready for our summer holidays. Tannin

g on a topless or naturist beach can be a great way to get a sun-kissed glow, but remember that it is important to protect all your skin, including the delicate skin of your private parts. Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to make sure your most sensitive areas of your body stay safe while you soak up some summer sun.

Wear protective clothing or a vaginal shield

If you are into topless sun-bathing you could invest in a pair of tanning shorts or bikini bottoms with a built-in liner to protect your genitals from UV rays. Tanning shorts and bikini bottoms come in a variety of styles, colours, and sizes, so you can find something comfortable for any size or shape. If you prefer soaking up some rays naked, either in the privacy of your own back garden, roof terrace or on a tropical nudist beach then the VA j-j visor is probably the best option out there for protecting your vulva and vagina.

Protect your vulva and clitoris from UV Rays

The patented Va j-j Visor is made from a special flexible plastic and held in place naturally with your own muscles. It comes in a number of cool colours for summer tanning too.. It's disposable, hygienic, comfortable and easy to put in place and probably the easiest and best way to prevent sunburn and skin damage down there.

Apply Sun screen down below and all over

If you decide not to wear protective bottoms or a visor, make sure you use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher all over your body including your private areas. Women should pay special attention to the labia majora and minora, which are particularly sensitive areas that need extra protection from the sun. Reapply sunscreen every two hours to ensure adequate protection. UV rays do not only have the potential to burn the skin but they can also cause leathery skin, unsightly melasma skin patches and even deadly skin cancer so take care!

Drink Plenty of Water all day

When tanning and being in the sunshine in general it’s super-important to stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of fluids will help keep your skin healthy and hydrated, which can help reduce the risk of sunburn. Bear in mind that alcoholic drinks and those containing caffeine can actually contribute to dehydration so they are not the best choice to go with your beach picnic. Water is the best option but if you find it too bland you can always add a small amount of sugar-free fruit juice to make it tastier.

Wear quality sunglasses

Definitely protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays by wearing a decent pair of sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection. This will greatly help reduce the risk of developing cataracts or other eye diseases caused by overexposure to UV radiation and also protect the sensitive skin around your eyes. It's worth investing in a good pair of sunglasses from an optician because cheaper ones from beach sellers or fashion shops often do not provide adequate protection.

Take Breaks and pace yourself

Limit your daily sun exposure and take frequent breaks to cool off in the shade and rehydrate. Doing so will help keep your skin healthy and reduce the risk of sunburn or skin damage. If you are on a naturist beach, by doing this and following the other simple steps in this article you can protect your vagina, penis and the rest of your body while tanning and enjoy a beautiful, sun-kissed glow without putting your health at risk.

Wear a wide-brimmed hat

Wearing a hat with an extra wide brim can provide added protection from the sun's rays. This will help keep your face and head protected, as well as your genitals while nude sunbathing. Look for hats made from lightweight fabrics that are breathable and comfortable to wear. Some can even been worn while swimming to protect your face from the sun rays reflecting off the surface of the sea.

Don't be a mad dog

When outside, look for shade to rest in, especially during the hottest parts of the day between about 11am and 2pm. Taking breaks and seeking out areas with less direct sunlight will help reduce your risk of sun damage and keep your skin safe. It's cool to be an Englishman (or woman) but don't be a mad dog and go crazy or you will get burned and ruin your holiday.

Monitor Your Skin

After tanning whether on a beach or on a tanning bed take a moment to check your skin for any signs of redness or irritation. You can also get a friend or partner to check the parts of your body that are difficult for you to see yourself. If you notice any changes in your skin, freckles or moles be sure to contact your doctor right away.

Choose the right tanning products

When shopping for sun protection products, look for ones that are specifically designed for sensitive areas, such as your vulva, nipples, penis and testicles. Opt for products that are free of fragrances and dyes, as these tend to cause irritation or even allergic reactions. Also, you may want to consider investing in a sunscreen stick or spray that is easy to apply without getting your hands messy. The great thing about VA j-j visors is that you can avoid the discomfort of having to apply messy creams that can also sometimes cause irritation to your genital area because the visor just slots in comfortable and provides protection.

Avoid Tanning Oils

Tanning oils may seem like a great way to get a golden glow, but they can actually do more harm than good. Instead, use an SPF 30+ sunscreen that is specifically designed for sensitive areas to provide the best protection from UV rays and help keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

Visit a Dermatologist

If you’re ever concerned about your skin's health or have questions about how to best protect yourself while tanning, don't be embarrassed to visit your doctor or dermatologist. They will be able to provide you with more information and advice on the best ways to keep your skin safe and healthy and if you do ever develop any uncomfortable or potentially harmful skin conditions, the sooner they are discovered, the quicker they can be treated and cured.
