How To Keep Your Tan Maintained This Christmas

With the lead up to Christmas and the New Year approaching, there are so many reasons to wear fake tan, as there are so many events! With the majority of fake tans on the market only lasting 7days (including the fade) this proves difficult to keep the tan at its best.I get asked frequently ‘how do I keep my colour consistent and tanned’? The Key to this is good timing, the right products and good after care!

You will need a long lasting self-tan - For this, I recommend looking into ‘Skinny Tan’ or ‘Fake Bake’. Also, a wash off tan, preferably a spray form - Sally Hansen has one you can purchase from Superdrug. Lastly you will need an oil free Exfoliator and oil free moisturiser.

Timing: Here is a quick guide on how to keep your tan consistent…Firstly, exfoliate! Then ensure you are completely dry so you can apply your tan to a product free body. Then moisturise your hands elbows knees and feet and any other dryer areas.

This fills in the transition of getting the old tan off - to get the new tan on!

When you shower you will cleanse away the wash off tan and then you can carry on exfoliating the developed fake tan off. Once the developed tan has been fully scrubbed away you are ready to apply your next fresh self-tan application.
