The Secret To a Long Lasting Tan
This Summer!

Who else is a better person when they are tan? Summer is just around the corner and even though we all have no trips booked this year, we may as well tan to make ourselves feel a little better. Tanning is the best way to boost self-confidence, am i right ladies? With just a little color, we feel SO much better in our own skin. We are going to show you step-by-step how to up-keep a perfect, natural looking tan ALL summer long!

If you are looking for a new self-tanner for this summer, we narrowed down the best options for a natural and a ultra dark tan in our other blog post here!

1. Hair Removal

The first step before tanning is hair removal. Whether you prefer waxing or shaving, this step is a MUST and will make sure your tan goes on evenly. We recommend taking a warm bath so that you can relax while shaving and doing the next few steps.

2. Scrub + Moisturize

While still taking a bath, grab your go-to body scrub and get scrubbing! The main idea is to prepare your skin, so that it's left without any dead skin, left-over tan or hair.

We are loving the New GOOP G.Tox 5 Salt Body Scrub from Sephora as an effective body exfoliator! It works like magic when removing dead skin and leaves your skin feeling extra smooth. Soft skin will assure you an even smoother tanning application.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Hydration is key to a long-lasting tan and the most important step. The Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Cream is our Holy Grail when it comes to moisturizing the body. If you haven't tried it, you need to, it's worth every penny and smells like heaven!

3. Wash off, Moisturize and Repeat

Depending on your self-tanner, most require to be left on for 5-7 hours. So after several hours, you are going to have to rinse off the tan layer. If you don't rinse it off right away, your tan can become patchy, and no one wants a patchy tan!

Now to hydating... This is the most important step, you are going to need to moisturize every day. Moisturizing your body daily, will help extending the lifetime of your tan.

One Self-Tan Hack from Celebrity Tanner, Jules Von Hep is to spray Isle Of Paradise's Self Tanning water onto your skin. The tanning water will gradually add extra tan, as well as hydrating your skin to keep your color fresh.

4. Focus on Dry Areas

Whether you are dry in certain parts of your body, or struggle with a skin condition such as Eczema, dry patches can seperate the tan and make it look patchy.

The most common areas to become dry are hands, feet, knees or elbows. Although at times it can be hard to remember, it's extremely important to always hydrate these areas. 

Whatever you do, never look at a tanners feet or ankles! We don't know about you, but these areas can be so tricky to not get patchy.

5. Re-Apply Weekly

Tanning is a lifestyle! To make sure your color lasts, make sure to apply every week. Again, investing in a self-tanning water will make this process so much easier!

Use your Favorite Self-Tanning foam once a week, and every few days spray self-tanning water to gradually tan and hydrate your body.

In Conclusion:

Keeping up a self-tan can be a lot of work, but once you get use to a caring routine it gets easier! In conclusion, hydrating your body is key. It will ensure your tan goes on even, natural and un-patchy. Hopefully this five-step routine will help you keep a long lasting, confident tan this summer!
