You’ve spent the summer working on getting a gorgeous tan. Now that it’s winter, you’re probably wondering if you’ll be able to maintain your summer glow. Don’t worry—there are several steps you can take to make your tan last through the winter. These tips will help you maintain your summer tan as long as possible.
During winter, the dry air and cold temperatures can dry out and damage your skin. Dry skin is prone to peeling, which can cause your tan to fade. Applying plenty of moisturizers will protect your skin and help you sustain your summer tan.
Use Bronzing Lotion
Applying a bronzing lotion or tanning lotion a few times per week can give your skin a natural, healthy tan. Just be careful not to apply too much. With tanning lotion, you’ll avoid skin damage and give your skin a natural, golden glow.
Take Cool Showers
Long, hot showers and baths can dry out your skin, and dry skin is much more likely to peel. Keep your showers cool and apply moisturizer as soon as your skin dries. You should also consider using a moisturizing shower oil to keep your skin from becoming dehydrated.
Keeping yourself hydrated is essential for your health, including your skin. Drinking plenty of water helps to keep your skin moisturized. Most people should drink six to eight glasses of water per day.
Wear Light Colors
A time-tested trick for making your skin appear darker is to wear white or another light color. A light color next to your face, combined with bronzer and bold lipstick color, is a terrific tan booster.
