September is here, and that means summer is drawing to a close. If you’re one of the lucky people who managed to get yourself a rich golden tan, September also means it’s time to find new ways of maintaining that extra melanin for as long as possible.
Unfortunately, unless you’ve got another tropical vacation in the pipeline, your sun-kissed glow is bound to disappear, but no worries—we’re here to help you prolong it.
For those who don’t know, the secret to a long-lasting tan is moisture. Keeping your skin hydrated is key to retaining your summer glow. If you want your tan to last forever, just remember that you can never moisturise too much. The more the better. In fact, don’t even give your skin the chance to get dry.
Drinking lots of water also goes without saying. Again, hydration is key—so you want to make sure you’re taking care of your skin both inside and out. The more hydrated you are, the longer the golden skin cells at the surface will survive.
But if you’re looking for an extra boost, you’ll be happy to hear that there are plenty of products out there designed to do exactly that, and we’ve rounded up our favourites for you.
