Tips and tricks to extend the life of your sunless tan.
No need to kiss your summer glow goodbye. With the season of family gatherings and holiday parties around the corner, a little glow goes a long way. Keep your spray tan or airbrush tan kicking with these tips from the folks at Sunless Inc.
Take Cooler Showers
The same way a hot tub and chlorine can strip away color, hot showers can have the same effect. Very hot showers and baths can dehydrate skin and make it look dull over time. Cooler showers will cleanse your pores without affecting your tan. So stay cool, and keep your color!
Layer on a Bronzing Product a Few Days Per Week
After a sunless spray session, keep layering on tanning products the following week. This will slowly build a natural color. Using a moisturizing product such as SunlessPro Post-Tan Moisturizer does double-duty to extend your tan while keeping skin hydrated. This means your skin will be bronze, and will also stay moisturized, healthy, and ideal for absorbing color.
Feed Your Body Healthy Fruits and Veggies
Eating foods that contain a lot of water will keep you hydrated and help keep your skin healthy too! Essential minerals and vitamins can also be important contributors to a healthy glow. Specifically, foods that contain vitamin E, zinc and vitamin C have anti-aging properties, and will prevent dehydration.
Consider these skin-friendly foods (that are also great for fall recipes):
- Carrots, apricots and other yellow and orange fruits and vegetables
- Spinach and other green leafy vegetables
- Beans, peas and lentils
- Salmon, mackerel and other fatty fish
