QA By Laci Paige Q Beach time is coming and I want that perfect looking tan but Im pale as a ghost. What do you suggest to protect my skin and still get a little color A. If you want to go the sunless route a safe tanning lotion or spray tan with a slight tint would be a good start. Anything too dark will be too drastic and then as the season goes you can darken the shade. Id be cautious of salon spray tans though you may inhale the fumes and many are not FDA approved. Then there are tanning beds which expose you to UV rays causing skin damage which also increases the chance of skin cancer. And lastly tanning pillswith prolong use they might turn skin orange can damage the liver and cause blurred vision. Regardless of which method you use when youre outside and your skin is exposed to the sun you still need sun lotion with an SPF. Having a darker skin tone does not protect it. If an outdoor suntan is what youre after always use sunscreen A suntan is actually your skins way of protecting itself from the harmful UV rays. With prolonged exposure it could increase the likelihood of cancerous cells growing. Always apply sunscreen before you go out and be sure to reapply every two hours or after swimming. And remember the sun is at its strongest between 10AM and 2PM. If you use an accelerant or oil be sure it has at least an SPF of 15 or greater. Enjoy your fun in the sun but be safe Q Sorry to go there but that time of month seriously messes me up. Moody is an understatement and I feel uncomfortable in my own skin and depressed all throughout my period. How can I make the cramping mood swings and sensitivity settle down A. Anyone who has lived through a rough menstrual cycle or anyone who has lived with someone going through it can honestly say its a rollercoaster of emotions. Its most likely due to the rise and fall of hormones. Fortunately there are a few things you can do to get through it Exercise helpful in delivering a boost of happy endorphins to your brain which might increase your energy and help with cramping. Aerobic exercises are your best bet. Eat healthy make wise food choices and eat smaller more frequent meals. By spreading them out you lessen your food bloat keep your sugar levels steady and as a result you might be able to keep your mood swings at bay. Steer clear of caffeine and alcohol as they can also affect the way you feel anywhere from anxious to depressed. Rest and relaxation Stress can make matters worse so get plenty of sleep and meditate if needed. A relaxed state of mind can go a long way in making your day go better. And go see your doctor if you are not coping well with your cycle they can suggest things or even prescribe you something if needed depending on your situation. 27 WWW.FLIPMAGAZINE.NETJUNE2015
