We all know that there’s nothing better than a sunkissed tan after break… and there’s nothing worse than when it fades. But what if there was a way to hold onto it? Well…
Let me help you avoid one of my least favorite post-vacay blues: peeling. If you stand by these three simple tips, your tan is sure to last longer.
The first step to preserving your tan is taking cold showers (a solid shower oil helps). Hot water speeds up the dehydration process which, in turn, encourages peeling.
As I mentioned above, keeping your skin hydrated is imperative to delaying the peeling process. I’ve included some of my favorite moisturizers for your face and body, as well as my absolute favorite mask for dry skin. Seriously, a good moisturizer is an investment! We all know it’s great in the short-term, but in the long-term, it has major anti-aging properties and brightens your overall complexion.
This one is simple ladies — DRINK WATER!
And when it starts to fade (as all good things come to an end), you can take a few routes! If you’re interested in self-tanning, try my personal favorite: St.Tropez! This tanning mousse (when applied with their application mitt) works wonders. It’s not streaky and fades evenly. If you’re not ready to take the leap, you can always make a spray appointment at Gloww Tan, one of the most popular places in Dallas! I can honestly say it was well worth the cash, and Whitney left me looking and feeling like a million bucks.
If none of that is up your alley, bronzer will always be your best friend. Try one of these best sellers: Benefit Hoola, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil, or Marc Jacobs O!Mega. You know what they say… fake it ’till you make it!
I know going back to school after a break is hard, but we’ll get through it together with good moisturizers and tan lines.
