How to keep your tan longer

negril, jamaica
I am back from another fabulous Jamaica vacation and my skin feels soft and wonderful. I don't know why my skin always feels so good after my Jamaica vacations. It may be all the sunscreen I apply and the high humidity keeping the skin hydrated. It could also be that the skin sweats in the warm and sunny 86 degrees bringing moisture to the surface of the skin.

I have just a nice light golden tan from wearing my SPF 30. Now comes the challenge of keeping my skin glowing, moist and soft in this chilly Philadelphia weather. Here are some tips to help keep your tan a little longer:

No Exfoliation
To keep a beautiful golden tan a little longer,
avoid exfoliating the skin.  Using a body scrub, body puff or loofah to exfoliate will speed up the removal skin cells quickly fading a tan. 

Moisturize
Be diligent with moisturizer and apply it a couple times a day to keep the skin moist. After a warm shower is the best time to apply moisturizer.

A Warm Shower
Avoiding a long hot shower will also keep the skin looking moist. Use warm water, not dehydrating hot water. That's not so easy on cold days.  Hot showers feel so good!

Self Tanner
You can always fake it. Apply some self tanner to keep the skin looking golden.
