Holiday fake tan time upon us, an effortless at-home glow can be tricky to maintain during the summer months.
Travelling abroad, you may want to top up your tan before you go. Or if you’re keeping closer to home, add in some sun-kissed staycation bronzing. Covering either eventuality, TanOrganic are to hand with their top summer holiday tan tips…
Will my fake tan protect me from the sun?
The simple to answer to this is NO. It is, however, a common misconception that the darker your skin is, the less you will burn. This is totally false so wear sun cream and try to stay out of the sun.
Will applying SPF sun cream streak my tan?
Fake tan won’t protect your skin from sun exposure so it’s important to apply a high SPF factor sun cream over your fake tan. Opt for a DHA-friendly sun lotion to avoid streaks. An added advantage is that it can actually work as a barrier against chlorine and salt water fading your tan.
Will sweating in a hot country make my tan run?
It is advisable to avoid perspiring for at least eight hours after self-tanning. This can be difficult if you are topping your tan up on holiday so try to do it in the evenings when the temperature is cooler. Once the tan has dried however, sweat won’t make it go streaky.
Will shaving my legs every day make my tan go flaky?
Shaving gives a similar effect to exfoliation so if you shave your legs every day ensure you use a good shaving cream and moisturise afterwards to avoid flakiness.TanOrganic Oil Arganic (£24.99/100ml) is the perfect accompaniment to your self-tanpreservation routine, as it contains a unique blend of plant and nut oils to hydrate skin deeply.
As with all queries about fake tan, it is important to look after it, reapply when necessary and keep skin exfoliated and well-hydrated.
