Tanning safety tips


This week we continue on the topic of tanning on our blog. Last week we shared with you some tips to get a beautiful tan and today what we would like is to give you some tanning safety tips so you can sunbathe in a more responsible way:

  • Do not sunbathe from midday till 4 in the afternoon; the sun’s rays are stronger at this time of the day so they are also more harmful.
  • Sometimes guests tell us that they got sun burnt even if the sun wasn’t shining that day. Remember, even on cloudy days we are exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, so do not take risks and use sun screens.
  • At the beach the sun reflects on the water and on the sand, so you have many more chances of tanning, though this also means that even under a parasol UV rays can reach you.
  • Always use a high protection sun screen cream. Once you are starting to show a tan you can use a cream with a lower sun protection factor.

Doctors state that sunbathing responsibly is good for our health, as it helps us to fight against stress and that the sun provides us with vitamins.

On the other hand an over exposure can lead to serious health problems, so do not forget to follow these easy tips during your stay in Hotel Florida Spa and enjoy the sun in Fuengirola without risks.

Time to get tanned


After a rainy weekend, we are sure that now that the sun is out again you are eager to get out and work on your tan. It is because of this that this week we would like to share with you some easy tips to help you get beautifully tanned during your holiday in Costa del Sol.

Tips to get a good tan:

  • Drink a glass of orange and carrot juice daily. Carrots and oranges help you to get a tan faster and their vitamins protect your skin.
  • Light-skinned people have to be much more careful and tanning can take longer, but if a few days before hitting the beach or the pool you apply a self tanning lotion, your skin will get tanned more easily.
  • If you want an even tan it is better to have a walk than to lay down under the sun. That way we will avoid getting certain parts of our body very tanned while others remain white.

Here in Hotel Florida Spa we love to be tanned, but we are always very careful as damaging the skin sunbathing is really dangerous.

 We hope you find these tips we just shared with you helpful and that you enjoy the beautiful sunny days expected this week in Fuengirola.

 There is no excuse now…it is time to get tanned!
