The good times during your summer vacation are so many, and the time flies so fast, it's never enough to feel truly rested and ready to get back to work. Time seems to fly when you are on vacation. You just had enough to make beautiful and it's time to come back to reality. It hasn't been easy for you in such a short time and you wish you could keep it for longer. How to succeed?
Prepare your skin
It's a bad idea to sunbathe on the sea if it hasn't been caressed by the sun's rays before. This way you risk your skin becoming red instead of bronzed.Therefore, one week before departure to the sea, start preparing it. Take a few minutes of sunbathing on the terrace, in the garden (if you have one) or in the park. Get more of your body in the sun to prep your skin for the beach to come.
Hydrate and Moisturize
One of the keys to lasting longer is to constantly hydrate and moisturize, not only during your vacation at the beach, but also long after. Baking in the sun dries out the skin and makes it prone to peeling easily. This natural process is slowed down if you apply moisturizing and hydrating products to the skin daily. They will protect it from peeling and dryness, which are the main culprits for the rapid loss of the accumulated tan.
Cool or cold water
The hotter the shower you take, the more dehydrated and dry the skin becomes, especially after sun exposure. To keep your tan, take lukewarm or cold showers.
Do not exfoliate
Peeling scrapes off the top layer of the skin and helps the tan fall off faster. If you don't want it to fade, wait a few weeks before exfoliating again.
