How To Keep Your Tan
1. Moisturise tanned skin
Want to know how to keep a tan from fading? If there’s one essential step that will help you to keep your tan after a holiday, it’s moisturising. After spending days basking in the heat of the sun, your skin will feel dehydrated. Look for products that are rich in oils and creamy butters and ensure that you start to moisturize before your skin becomes dry. Once it starts to peel, unfortunately your holiday glow’s days are numbered.
Our Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser blends Shea Butter with Apricot Kernel Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil to keep your skin hydrated. Apply it religiously twice a day to keep tanned skin glowing for longer and feeling velvety soft and smooth.
Top tip: Make sure that you drink plenty of water as well. If your body is dehydrated, your skin will be too.
