A tan makes everything look and feel better. After my week long vaca in the Dominican Republic, I returned to the chilly east coast armed with bronze skin and a naturally lightened mane. I feel fabulous but fear it'll fade before I have a chance to show it off.
Here are my tricks to making a tan last:
1 - Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize - dead skin equals peeling skin which equals bye bye tan
2 - Stay away from products with aloe vera (heels burns) and exfoliators (scrub that tan right off)
3 - try using a buildable color lotion -- like Jergen's Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer -- to maintain the glow
4 - When washing your face and body, use a light milky cleanser like Weleda's Creamy Pomegranate Body Wash for the skin and Dermalogica's Special Cleansing Gel - It's gentle and soap-free.
5 - Pat or air dry, don't rub dry after bath or shower.
6 - Use an oil to lock in moisture directly after bath or shower. Try Oils Of Aloha Organic Kukui Oil , all natural, all hydration.
7 - Try not to shave! Shaving removes the skin which in turn removes the tan.
