Can anyone give a guide on sunbathing for a man who's white as snow? Do I have to shave my legs/arms for optimal tan? How long do I have to tan?

1. USE SUNBLOCK OF AT LEAST THIRTY SOLAR PROTECTION FACTOR.

2. SHAVING BODYHAIR IS UNNECESSARY.

3. EXPOSURE OF FIFTEEN MINUTES IN TOTAL IS SUFFICIENT.

I am Greek so I am an expert on this topic

Not everybody can tan. Some very white north Europeans come here, stay in the sun all day, and they only ever become red, which goes away in a few days.

I am very white for a Greek, and the first few times in the sun I get red, but it slowly becomes a tan. After a while I get tanned quite a lot and stop being red. The more tanned you are, the less protection you need.

I start at 30 SPF for the first 4-5 times at the beach, and then switch to 30 SPF for the face, the nose and my forehead especially, and 15 SPF for the body.

If you apply sunscreen every hour or so, you can stay in the sun all day. I do it all the time, I work many hours so I try to get as much sun as I can during the weekends and vacations.
Don't forget to flip sides.
Also you get a lot of sun while swimming, especially on your head, shoulders and upper back. The water keeps you cool so it's deceptive.

Don't shave.

If you have fragile white skin, don't go in the sun before 4pm (at leat it's like that where I'm from in Mediterranea because we have very high UV levels)

Use solar protection in fragile zones.
Shoulders nose, cheekbones and forehead

A good looking tan is a result of multiple exposition at moderate UV levels.

The best way to have a uniform tan is to move around (jog, play football on the beach, go for a walk).
You tan more quickly in the sea, so go swimming

On both sides total or only for one?

Is that really advisable for a person who hasn't tanned at all before in the season?

>Also you get a lot of sun while swimming, especially on your head, shoulders and upper back. The water keeps you cool so it's deceptive.
Yeah, I read the same is true for wind as the cooling factor can mask apparent burns as they are developing. There's even a term "windburn".

I'm higher up North. Sun is most active during 11:00-13:00.

>You tan more quickly in the sea, so go swimming
Isn't this more related to what this poster >>12641095 said about deceptive cooling?

BY "IN TOTAL" I MEAN THE ENTIRE SUNBATHING SESSION.

Go listen to the stuff you should know podcast about sunburns and aunt and, understand how UV A and UV B radiation interacts with your skin to produce either tans and burns. Then decide for yourself how you want to approach tanning.
