Since August is upon us everyone is scurrying to drink up the last moments of the sun! I am here of course to help guide you to keep that beautiful tan glowing long into October!
1. Get a base tan
It will actually help you with not getting overly burned. A week before your big vacation or sun day- start getting 15 mins of sun to prep your skin for the huge amounts of sun coming your way. Which leads me to my second point…..
2. DO NO BURN!!!!!!
I know. I know. You only have 1 day to do as black as sut but I promise you if you don’t use SPF you will burn and peel away that gorgeous color. Apply your sunblock. Not only will it help with aging in the future (yes you have to think about that friends), it keep your skin looking that bronze color for much much longer!
When I am not in the sun I am lathering up on lotion. Your skin is dehydrated. Over time your body will shed its tan layer BUT the process will be slowed down with the help of lotion.
I can truly see a difference when I exfoliate BEFORE I head out in the sun. And exfoliating 3 days after will help your tan fade evenly by brushing away the dead cells. *Exfoliating once every 7 to 10 days will not only help you tan more quickly, but also help you keep your tan longer. Also If you are a big spray tan person I suggest using exfoliation to even out your color. Get rid of those blotchy knees and elbows!
