Do you dream of maintaining a beautiful tan even in autumn? There are several proven ways to do so. All you have to do is follow a few golden rules. One of them is to moisturize your skin properly. Read the rest of the tips and stay tanned all year round!
How do I care for my tanned skin?
Tanned skin looks healthier and simply looks better. That’s why we want to keep our natural summer tan as long as possible. Here’s how to do it!
Moisturizing is key
Tanned skin needs proper hydration. That’s why it’s a good idea to use moisturizing shower gels, deeply nourishing body lotions and a light scrub every week to keep your skin perfectly bronzed.
Moisturization is responsible for maintaining the tan. Skin that is moisturized loses water more slowly. So it’s a good idea to incorporate the right lotion into your routine – in the morning and in the evening. It is also a good idea to take an oil bath and wash your body with a moisturizing gel. You can also find bath powder with a natural moisturizer in drugstores.
We can not forget about skin cleansing. Peeling, preferably the one done at home, will allow us to get rid of dead skin and improve skin tone. Use it once a week and your tan will surely last longer. The most recommended is a natural coffee scrub, which maintains the color of your tan and is light and smells beautiful.
Bronzing lotion or self-tanner?
Bronzing lotions and self-tanners have undergone an amazing transformation over the years. Forget about yellow spots, streaks and bad smells.
Today we can’t complain about the quality of bronzing products. The composition of both self-tanners and bronzing lotions is very similar. The only difference is that the lotion contains additional care ingredients. Sometimes you can also find lotions with gold particles.
We personally recommend bronzing lotions, especially for people who are just beginning their adventure with this type of cosmetics. The “tanning” process takes much longer here. You have to wait a dozen or so hours for the effects! However it’s perfect for maintaining the tan. Using it once a day, alternating with a regular moisturizing cream will make your skin feel like sunshine.
On the market you can also find modern tanning foams, which are applied with a special glove. They have a pleasant smell and the effect is immediate. Additionally, you can decide how strong color you want to get. It all depends on how long you leave the product on your skin. The tan is even and has a very natural color.
Self-tanner, on the other hand, lasts longest on the skin, but the application process is harder, so it is recommended for people who have already used coloring cosmetics.
Before you choose the right product, check its reviews on the Internet. Often we can learn a lot this way about the color and quality of such a product.
Does diet matter?
To maintain a summer tan, diet is important. Make sure that it includes products rich in vitamin A, which is responsible for accelerating the regeneration of the epidermis and improves the appearance of the skin. You can also drink carrot juice, but there is no need to overdo it – beta-carotene in excess is not healthy.
