5 Tips for the Best Winter Tan
Hot beverages, comforting meals and extra layers of clothing are all staples of the winter. Tanning, on the other hand, is not something you relate to this particular season but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Sure. The weather outside might be frightful, but just because the sun is not shining quite the same way it does in the summertime, it doesn’t mean your skin can’t sport a nice glow. Here’s how you can make winter bronzing real:
Don’t Allow Your Skin to Dry Out
Sunless tanning options are lifesavers this time of year —maybe even all year long— but for the final look to be successful, your canvas —your skin— needs to be prepared. Winter can be very rough on skin so it is essential to take the necessary measures to keep it from getting parched. Drink plenty of water and moisturize. Oils are also great for skin as they help retain moisture, nourish it and make it look radiant.
Nourish Your Body, Nourish Your Skin
After a couple of weeks of excess, thanks to the holidays, it’s time to get back on track. Regardless of your fitness goals, nutrition is also a very important aspect of healthy skin. Make sure you add plenty of greens to your diet, especially kale, spinach and avocado. These are great to fight off infections and ensure an even tan
Prep Your Skin
A step you don’t want to forget about before your tanning session, is to exfoliate. This will remove dead skin cells and help improve circulation.
Choose a Lighter Shade
Winter is a good time to go for a different shade when tanning. A summer tan packs a punch but a winter tan should be more like a subtle glow. A softer shade will look the best and the most natural this time of year.
