Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to tell you what the best time to lay in the sun is. Because I'm an aesthetician, I'm very against laying in the sun. It's really not good for you in any way, shape, or form. But if you want to do it and you use some sun protection, you probably would want to do it between the hours of one and four when the sun is not quite at the highest point and the burning rays are not quite as long as they are as, say, high noon or early in the morning. You probably have a less likelihood of getting burnt if you go later in the afternoon, but you can still get a tan. And use a sunscreen. Please use a sunscreen. You can still get tanned even through a sunscreen -- it just helps to block the harmful UVA and UVB rays. So it's going to prevent you from burning, but you're still going to be able to get some color through a sunscreen, but it's also going to block those really harmful UVA rays that can lead to premature aging and are cancer-causing. So if you have to lay in the sun, you know, I definitely recommend going a little bit later in the afternoon to still get some color but not necessarily get the full effects. And if you can prevent at all, don't go out in the sun. Go get a really good spray tan. So those are some tips about what the best time to lay in the sun are.
