We are looking forward to summer to soak up the sun and get a beautiful golden tan. Almost everyone has heard about the dangers of ultraviolet radiation, but not everyone takes it seriously. But its overdose can lead to quite serious consequences: the formation of age spots, premature aging, irritation and even the development of oncology.

In order not to deprive yourself of the pleasure of relaxing in the sun, it is necessary to use special means that create a barrier against UV exposure. For protection from UVB rays, which are active in summer, we choose creams with the abbreviation SPF. They come in high, medium and basic protection levels. It is worth remembering that your skin needs special care after being in the sun. For this, many manufacturers produce special after-sun creams.

In order not to get confused among the shelves of shops and pharmacies, our experts have prepared a rating of the best tanning creams for tanning in a solarium, in the open sun, self-tanning, protective products while outdoors, and skin care products.
