How to maintain your summer tan


We all know how frustrating it is to spend all summer working on that killer summer tan, just to loose in an instant when fall sets in.

Although it's hard to maintain your healthy summer tan throughout the winter, there are ways to help you keep it for just a while longer.

1. Moisturizer is your new best friend

For most of you it might seem obvious but you really need to keep your skin super moisturized if you want to keep your tan for a longer period. Try to apply a moisturizer at least twice a day to delay skin exfoliation.
Also avoid taking long showers or baths, as they will have a similar effect on your skin as cosmetic exfoliation has.

2. Work from the inside too

Work from the inside too not only from the outside. Eat vegetables and fruits that are rich in vitamin E, and zinc. For egg. broccoli, vinegars, apricots, apples, peaches, watermelon, peanuts and sunflower seeds.
Also drink plenty of water to help your skin look healthier.

3. Sunless tanners

This is a more like cheating but once your sun tanned starts to fade, you can start considering sunless cream tanners. Try a gradual tanner that slowly builds up your color. Before you use any tanning creams be sure to scrub your entire body.

4. Makeup tricks

When the cold weather sets in, you can create the tanned skin by using makeup tricks. The magic is in a little bronzer and blush!
Sweep a bit of bronzer across your cheekbones, nose, and forehead to highlight those areas. Finish the look with blush on the apples of your cheeks for a natural look.
