Best Products To Make Your Post-Holiday Tan Last Longer
Posted by Nitya Uppal in Body
After a long, sunny vacation as soon as my feet touch home ground, an uneasy thought creeps up - how long before I lose the tan I worked so hard on? Sure, there is a certain calmness about spending hours laying out on the beach, but it seems to be a waste of time if it was all for nothing. After confiding my worry with others, I was comforted by the fact that I’m not the only one with this preoccupation. Hence I decided to do some digging to find ways to ensure that my gorgeous new skin tone lasts a long long time. Here are some top beauty tips and the best products I uncovered during my research, to help you stay beautifully bronzed, as long as possible.
This is one of the best tanning experiences available to you in the form of a packaged product. Xen-Tan's unique formula balances the skin's pH level to allow optimal self-tanning results. Not only that but it also uses non-abrasive grains that gently loosen dead cells, polishing skin and increasing its receptiveness to tanning treatments. So this gentle treatment doesn't strip away colour and works great even when you're tanned. If you’re dealing with sensitive skin, then you should know that this product is packed with aloe vera that moisturises and takes good care for your body.
If you’re looking to protect your skin against the sun and at the same time enhance your tan then pick up Aloedermal Solar Sun Milk Spray £19.99. It is free from parabens, silicones, preservatives or colourings and contains a high concentration of anti-radical substances. It is a fluid milk that easily melts onto your skin and has been developed to protect it against the attack of sunlight. With a high protection of SPF 50, it’s gentle on the skin whilst allowing for a quick, gentle and uniform tan.
