Retaining Holiday Tan for a Longer Period

When on a holiday, it is possible that you will be going for a tan to look gorgeous and attractive. However, when you come back, it may just fade away quickly. Don’t want that to happen? Here are a few tips which will help you to retain the tan for a longer period of time.

Essential tips
While returning home, you will probably take plane and AC cabs. This will make your skin very dry and leave it flaky and desiccated. It is therefore advised to apply after-sun lotion to keep your skin hydrated. Also keeping an emergency water spray is good in case your skin becomes very dry. Moral – Keep your skin hydrated all the time to retain your holiday tan for a longer period.

On the way back home and after you reach home, you need to maintain a properly hydrated skin. Drinking ample water can help but never over drink because that can be really harmful. 3 liters of water a day is sufficient. For further hydration using lotions will do.

Excessive skin scrubbing will not help but only quickly take away the tan color by peeling off the dead cells which are responsible for tanning. Make sure that you scrub your skin lightly and never take warm baths for prolonged periods of time. Go for a fresh and refreshing shower. Forget not to apply hydration cream every time when you are out from shower.

One good way to retain holiday tan is to eat. Not just any thing though! You need to concentrate on food that is rich in beta-carotene. Best examples of such foods are sweet potatoes, spinach, carrots etc.

Finally, you must consider using artifice that contrasts well with your skin tan color. The simplest thing to do is to wear clothes that are bright and contrast very well with the golden hue of your skin.

You need to remember that your skin will be renewed after every 28 days cycle. Hence, you cannot really keep your tan forever. You will have to re-tan your skin to get back that holiday time color.
