No doubt about it: skin care can be confusing for many of us. Let us guide you through your most common concerns so you can take the best possible care of your skin, regardless of whether you have a tan or not. Often, we opt for sunless tanning and forget the importance of keeping a good skin regimen. The upkeep is also part of your daily routine to keep your skin and glowing longer.
- Try to exfoliate weekly, but avoid over exfoliating, which can scrub away layers of your tan and shorten its lifespan.
- If the skin around your elbows, knees, and heels is still rough, exfoliate only these areas more often.
- Look for exfoliators that contain moisturizing benefits and are tested by dermatologists.
- Tanning can dry your skin. To avoid this and develop a better color, hydrate your skin as often as possible.
- It’s extremely important to moisturize regularly, and replenish moisture particularly before and after sessions.
- If you’re going to invest in one thing for prolonging your tan, look for the best lotion – one that contains shea butter, coconut oil, or other replenishing oils.
DON’T FORGET YOUR FACE
Pay special attention to the skin on the face since it is the most sensitive and most delicate. Assure you keep your face glowing by:
- Washing your face daily – morning and night. This will remove any dirt, oil, and makeup residue you may have on your skin.
- Being sure to wash off makeup before each tanning visit. Leaving it on may cause spotting, so it’s best to go in with clean skin before any tanning session.
- Using a facial lotion every day. When using the right moisturizer for your skin type, you will see smoother, radiant skin that is hydrated and healthier. Any dull, dry, or flaky skin will be replaced by skin that looks visibly younger.
