Tan looks good on people but sunburn is an entirely different topic altogether. The best way to beat suntan is by applying sunblock to your face and any other exposed parts of the skin. By using a water based lotion, you minimise the chances of having acne too. Oh, and wear a hat when you’re having fun in the sun.
