Post Tan Skin Tips
After you've invested in a tanning membership, you'll definitely want to know how to take care of your newly glowing skin. The better you care for your skin after your tan, the longer your results will last. Here are a few hints and tricks on how to make your tan last longer:
Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin cells and keeps your skin feeling smooth and soft. You should make a habit of exfoliating daily with a gentle exfoliating scrub. However, be careful not to overdo it because you could leave microscopic scratches on your skin or rub off too many layers. Gentle is the key. If you do happen to have a few rough spots, like on your elbows or knees, you can do an extra round of exfoliation each day in those localized areas.
Another important part of keeping your tan in great shape is staying hydrated. Before you head into your tanning session, make sure you have had plenty of water, and continue drinking water immediately after your session. You should also make sure to treat your skin with moisturizing lotion in the days after your tanning session to help your skin recover and seal in the golden color. Make a habit of moisturizing every day and night of your post-tan skincare regimen. When you’re at Desert Sun Tanning Salon, check out the variety of specially formulated moisturizers. These skincare products, called Tan Extenders are made specifically for tanned skin. You can even find options with cosmetic bronzers to help boost your color. Whatever option you decide on, Tan Extenders will help maximize the length of your tan.
Don't Forget the Face
If you want your tan to look natural, you will also need to pay close attention to your face. Make sure that you completely remove any makeup before you go tanning and each night. This will help keep your skin healthy. You should use a gentle face wash to restore the skin of your face and reduce any signs of aging. Our faces take more abuse than the rest of our bodies. As a result, it takes extra care to achieve a smooth, even tan that blends seamlessly into the rest of the body.
Taking proper care of your freshly tanned skin should always be a priority. For best results, you should begin preparing for your tanning session several days in advance by keeping your skin exfoliated and drinking plenty of water. Then, continue this routine after your tanning session with the addition of twice-daily moisturizing. These skincare tips are just what you need to keep your tan looking great for weeks.
