Simple Tips to Prolong Your Holiday Tan

Going somewhere warm for the holidays or after the New Year? When you come back home with sun-kissed skin, you’ll want it to last as much as possible. Prolonging your tan is possible, you just need to take the right measures to make it happen.

Minimize Your Hot Showers

Everyone loves a nice, hot shower, particularly during the winter, but if you have just came back from a vacation, and your skin got a little sun, it’s best to take it easy. Hot shower dehydrates your skin, so go for cool water and try to use a hydrating shower gel.
How to keep your holiday tan

Gently Exfoliate Your Skin

It’s always good to remove dead cells from your skin, as this will make your skin look brighter but if you abuse exfoliation, you can end up scrubbing away that lovely tan. Try to exfoliate before you go on vacation and when you’re back, use a Konjac sponge or a dry brush. Steer clear of exfoliating products.

Don’t Forget to Moisturize

In order to keep your tan alive longer, you must keep your skin hydrated, so moisturizing is a must. Reapply as you need to make sure your skin doesn’t get a chance to dry out. If it does, it’s a matter of time before it starts peeling.

Keep Yourself Hydrated

Water is your best friend. Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day. It’s essential for keeping your skin looking healthy and glowy. Plus, it’s good for your overall health.
