Getting ready to wave goodbye to your tan for another year? Think again!

Just got back from vacation, but not quite ready to say goodbye to your tan? Read on for our top tips on how to keep that holiday glow all year round.

Don’t over-exfoliate

When in the shower, it’s best to stick to colder temperatures to avoid leaving skin feeling tight. Pat skin dry to avoid causing damage. While exfoliation can help remove dead skin cells for a more luminous tan, Vichy Scientific Communications Officer Laurie Jacquet recommends using a gentler product to avoid irritation.

Stay hydrated

Keeping your water intake high ensures skin looks and feels plump, minimizing the drying effect spending time in the sun can have on your skin. Also, staying hydrated on the outside is as important as staying hydrated on the inside. Using a body butter or body cream is crucial when it comes to preserving your tan, while a gradual tanning lotion with built-in moisturiser will help even out any flaky or patchy spots.

Don’t be afraid to cheat

You know what they say: if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. An SPF-rich facial moisturizer featuring a gradual self-tanner is ideal for prolonging that holiday glow, particularly as your face is the first place where tans begin to fade. Bronzer isn’t just for summertime: blending a light layer of matte bronzing powder across areas naturally caught by the sun (cheekbones, the tip of your nose, collarbones) will help keep your face and neck looking even for weeks after your vacation.
