After devoting all those hours lying by the pool or strolling along the beach front, you have finally gained that golden glow you ventured across the world for…Now there’s the problem of keeping your tan when you head home to cooler weather conditions and this blog is going to tell you how to do just that!
So just because your holiday is over, doesn’t mean your tan needs to be as well.
Here are some Do’s and Don’ts to follow and also some AMAZING products to help keep that tan going…or at least help you fake it as it fades!
Believe it or not getting a long lasting glow starts before you even leave for your holiday! So if you’re still to go on holiday and looking forward to catching some rays then make sure you prime your skin. Shower, shave, and exfoliate to remove dead cells on the top layer of your skin. This process doesn’t require any expensive treatments; simply hop in a long hot shower with your favourite body scrub!
Once you start to see your tan developing you will want to keep your skin hydrated! So AVOID long hot showers as they dehydrate the skin and can lead to peeling. Instead take quick, cool showers and avoid baths, hot tubs, or soaking in water for long periods of time.
Hydration is key when trying to prolong your summer tan. So drink plenty of water to keep your whole body (including your skin) hydrated. This can help prolong your glow and delay peeling and your body’s natural exfoliation process.
Moisturise from the outside too! For best results use a Tan Extender moisturiser such as MyTan Extend from HOT! Tanning Salons. The hydrating, fade-fighting formula can prolong a tan up to 50% longer making it the perfect product to keep your tan going strong!
As a last resort…Fake it if it fades! No one will ever know if you use the perfect tan…why not try out MyTan Self Tan for a real, dark looking tan! This self tan features a unique formula that will give the most luxurious and rich all over golden tan AND moisturise at the same time!
