How To Make Your Sun Tan Last Longer

How To Make Your Sun Tan Last Longer
There's nothing quite like a glorious sun tan to make you feel gorgeous in your own skin. But let's face it, nothing lasts forever – including that beautiful tan of yours. But fear not, because we've got some tips and tricks up our sleeve to help you extend that sun-kissed glow and keep your skin looking bronzed and beautiful for as long as possible!

1. Moisturize Like Your Tan Depends on It: Seriously, folks, keeping your skin moisturized is key to making that tan stick around. Find a moisturizer that suits your skin type and apply daily after your shower to keep your skin nourished and hydrated.

2. Exfoliate: Before you hit the sun, give your skin a good exfoliation to slough off those dead skin cells. By removing the top layer of skin that's about to shed off soon anyway you tan more evenly and effectively and prevent your tan from fading too quickly. Just remember, gentle is the name of the game here!

3. Cool Down, Hot Stuff: Steer clear of scalding hot showers and baths – they're terrible for prolonging the life of a tan. Opt for lukewarm water instead to keep your skin happy and hydrated.

4. Hydration Station: Drink up! Staying hydrated from the inside out is crucial for maintaining that radiant glow. So, grab that water bottle and keep sipping to keep your skin looking fresh and vibrant. Well-moisturised skin won't dry and flake or peel off, keeping your tan lasting even longer.

5. Sunscreen: Your Tan's BFF: Yup, you read that right – sunscreen is your tan's best friend! Slather on that SPF to protect your skin from UV damage and help your tan last longer. Trust us, your future self will thank you.
