Avoid That Face Pack Before The Beach: Face packs are very important to pamper your skin. But one must avoid it 24 hours before stepping into the sun. So, if you plan to head to the beach tomorrow, make sure that you avoid the application of a face pack, whether it is a natural face pack or chemical based.
Don't Go In For A Face Bleach: Bleaching your skin and then stepping into the sun will only burn your skin and invite more problems. If you have already bleached your skin and have made last minute plans of heading to the beach, cover your face with a soft cloth. Protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun and make sure that you don't expose your skin as it can cause sudden rashes.
Never Exfoliate Your Skin Before The Beach Trip: When you exfoliate the skin you are opening up the pores and deep cleansing the skin. Now, when you step into the sun after exfoliation, the rays of the sun burn the tender skin thus causing a burn and other skin problems.
