Prolong That Winter Tan

Prolong That Winter Tan

A tan makes everything look and feel better. After my week long vaca in the Dominican Republic, I returned to the chilly east coast armed with bronze skin and a naturally lightened mane. I feel fabulous but fear it’ll fade before I have a chance to show it off.

Here are my tricks to making a tan last:

1 – Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize – dead skin equals peeling skin which equals bye bye tan
2 – Stay away from products with aloe vera (heels burns) and exfoliators (scrub that tan right off)
3 – try using a buildable color lotion — like — to maintain the glow
4 – When washing your face and body, use a light milky cleanser like Weleda’s Creamy Pomegranate Body Wash for the skin and Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel – It’s gentle and soap-free.
5 – Pat or air dry, don’t rub dry after bath or shower.
6 – Use an oil to lock in moisture directly after bath or shower. Try Oils Of Aloha Organic Kukui Oil , all natural, all hydration.
7 – Try not to shave! Shaving removes the skin which in turn removes the tan.
