How can I prolong my tan?

Aug 19,2019

Whether you’re returning home from a sunny vacation or relishing in the great British heatwaves, having sun-kissed and glowing skin is a summer must-have. Maintaining a tan is a top priority for many, so we have gathered top tips to keeping your summer tan and bronzed look for as long as possible.

  1. After sun

We all think of burnt, tight skin in need of soothing, when using after sun. However, every skin type benefits from appropriate hydration after a day in the sun.
Rich and hydrating, after sun both cools the skin and deeply hydrates it which is key to prolonging your tan. It helps restore and strengthen the skins natural protective barrier that gradually gets damaged by the sun’s UV rays.

  1. Exfoliate, but not too much

It is important to maintain a healthy skincare routine however; exfoliating products can disrupt your tan. Continue to exfoliate your skin but try swapping out your body scrub with a gentler, fine polish. Light exfoliation will help remove dead skin cells, and reduce the likelihood for a patchy tan.

  1. Hydration is key!

Once you return to your daily routine, it is important to keep moisturising your skin. Your skin can become dry and cracked without appropriate hydration, and can leave your tan looking patchy and can actually make your tan fade more quickly.

  1. Top up your tan

There is an arsenal of products you can use to top up and boost your tan; illuminators, gradual tanners, fake tan and bronzers. Using a gradual tanner or tanning mist, can help you discreetly maintain your natural glow after summer.
