How To Make Your Tan Last Longer- Vacay Edition!

Whether you’re vacay-ing or staycay-ing, here’s your guide to achieving flawless tan results that will last!

Prepping the skin

Prep really is key to achieving those long-lasting results. Exfoliating is the first step. We recommend Dermasuri’s Deep Exfoliating Body mitt £12.99, which are available on our website. It is an absolute gamechanger and is the best for removing all dead skin cells. After exfoliating, your skin will be super smooth and rejuvenated.

Follow this step with your favourite moisturiser the day before you apply your tan to prep the skin thoroughly. You can also use a pea-sized amount of moisturiser on any particularly dry areas such as elbows, knees, armpits etc, right before you tan to make sure the skin is moisturised beforehand.

Stay hydrated

Keeping yourself and your skin hydrated is super important to enhance the longevity of your tan to avoid encouraging dead skin. To keep yourself hydrated you can…

Moisturise daily and use after sun lotion

Use a gentle scrub that won’t strip tanning results like our Fresh Prep Scrub, £17.99

Drink plenty of water

Avoid swimming

Saltwater and chlorine can strip the tan away from the skin. It’s best to avoid swimming if you can or take some fake tan with you to top up!

Remember SPF

Always remember to use SPF, fake tan DOES NOT protect you from UV rays. Even if you’re sunless tanning, remember to stay safe and keep your skin protected!
