How to Maintain Your Summer Tan Throughout Fall & Winter
Temperatures are dropping and days are getting shorter. That can only mean one thing: summer is coming to an end. There are a lot of things you have to give up when the seasons change, but your gorgeous bronze tan isn’t one of them! It’s easy to maintain your summer tan throughout the colder months by using self-tanning products from Fake Bake, along with the following tips.
1. Exfoliate Regularly
Your skin is exposed to dirt, dust and impurities in the air every day, along with drying factors that can lead to a buildup of dead skin cells – especially during colder, drier months. Not only can these make your skin feel rough and itchy, they can also impact your tan. To maintain your summer tan throughout fall and winter, exfoliate your skin regularly. Some people exfoliate several times a week, but start by exfoliating once a week if your skin isn’t used to it yet. Gently removing dead skin cells through exfoliation will keep your skin feeling soft and supple. It will also make it easier to maintain your summer radiance because your sunless tanning products will absorb better and more evenly.
2. Moisturize Often
Adding a moisturizer to your daily skincare routine is essential when it comes to maintaining your summer tan. As with exfoliation, it’s generally a good idea to moisturize before applying self-tanners, but especially during colder, drier months. Hydrating your skin will help it look and feel healthier and help you get a more even tan. Be especially careful to moisturize your elbows, knees and other areas that tend to get particularly dry.
3. Use Your Favorite Fake Bake Self-Tanning
Now that your skin and smooth and hydrated, one of the easiest, safest ways to maintain your summer tan throughout the fall and winter months is to use a self-tanner. Self-tanning products allow you to ensure your bronze glow remains flawless all year without exposing yourself to damaging UV rays. Fake Bake has a variety of great options, including the following products that are great choices for the fall and winter.
- Flawless® Coconut Tanning Serum for Face and Body
During colder months, you’re probably bundling up to stay warm. Long pants and sweaters are cozy, but they don’t show off much skin. Everyone can still see your face, though! Using our Flawless® Coconut Tanning Serum created specifically for your face and body can help you maintain a sun-kissed look on your face no matter what you’re wearing. You can use it on the rest of you too, which will come in handy when you break out that strapless dress for a holiday party. Best of all, the summery coconut scent will remind you of the warmer days ahead.
- Original Self-Tan Lotion
To maintain your summer tan and help keep your skin hydrated, you might consider using a self-tan lotion. Lotions tend to be more moisturizing than other self-tanners. Lotions also absorb deeper into the skin. As a result, our Original Self-Tan Lotion is our longest-lasting formulation. That means you can apply it less often and still look radiant, even when the snow is flying.
- Airbrush Instant Self-Tan
If you’re looking for a way to get tanned skin instantly, you need to check out our Airbrush Instant Self-Tan. This product sprays on evenly and dries quickly, giving you a sun-kissed tan that develops in just 6 to 8 hours. Get that summery look any time of year with this self-tanning spray that provides salon-worthy results.
Look and Feel Great All Year Long
There’s just something about a beautiful bronze tan that makes you look and feel good. Luckily, there are ways to safely and easily maintain your summer glow throughout the year. When it comes to finding the right products to help you achieve your tanning goals, Fake Bake has what you’re looking for.
