Summer is almost at an end, and we’re ready to welcome in Autumn. It’ll be getting cooler but we’re sure that you’ll want to keep and maintain that summer tan for as long as you can. Well you’re in the right place! We’ve got 3 perfect tips for maintaining and enhancing your tan while simultaneously stopping it from peeling – all with minimal effort.
Say ‘Hello’ to cold water
Hot water can dehydrate your skin. Swap steamy baths for cool showers with a gentle cleanser and see your tan last longer than ever.
Moisturise, moisturise and moisturise again
After enjoying your nice, sunny holiday, you should upgrade to a body butter and lotion-up every single day. Rich body butters will hydrate your skin and ultimately enhance and hold on to that tan.
Various studies show that a diet rich in beta-carotenes can recreate the glow of sun-kissed skin. Make sure you pack your lunch with some sunshine-coloured fruits and veg - like sweet potatoes, apricots, mangoes and especially carrots - to keep your body glowing.
In addition, make sure you’re staying hydrated on the inside by sipping plenty of water throughout the day. Water keeps your body hydrated and refreshed, and helps maintain your skin's elasticity, therefore making your tan last longer.
