18 Jan 4 Ways To Make Your Airbrush Tan Shine Through The Winter
Tis the season for snow, cold weather, and dry skin. Without a doubt, winter has you wondering how you can hold on to your airbrushed glow longer. The good news is, there are a few things you can do to extend your tan all season long.
Make the most of your tan shine by following these four tips for glowing, tan skin all winter long.
1. Moisturize Your Skin Regularly
Between dry air and low temperatures of winter, your skin can become dry, itchy, and flaky. As a result, your tan may fade faster as your skin becomes more prone to peeling. Combat this by moisturizing your skin regularly with a product that is suited for your skin type. Not only will this help your skin look and feel better, but it will also help to prolong the life of your tan.
One thing to remember about moisturizing is to avoid products with alcohol or fragrances. These ingredients can actually dry out your skin, making the problem worse. Use tan-safe moisturizers instead. We recommend our limited edition Cactus And Agave Lotion. This hydrating formula is free of synthetic ingredients and parabens, so it’s perfect for all skin types.
2. Drink More Water
Of course, it isn’t just enough to moisturize your skin. You should also be drinking more water as the cold weather hits to keep it hydrated from the inside out. Your skin’s health depends on hydration, as does your overall wellness.
The recommended daily water intake for the majority of the population is six to eight glasses. This will help your skin retain more of that golden tan goodness!
3. Shave Carefully
With the colder weather and many, many layers of clothes, you may be less inclined to shave anyway. But when the need does arise, can you actually shave your airbrushed skin? The answer is yes, but you will have to do so with care.
See, shaving too much can actually remove layers of your tan, so a light touch is key. And don’t forget—your shaving cream may contain harsh chemicals that can damage your tan. Be sure to use a gentle product that won’t irritate your skin while you shave.
4. Top Up Your Glow
As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, your tan will naturally start to fade. But don’t worry, you can extend its life by topping it up every few days. Our Sunnatan Hydrate Me Gradual Tanning Lotion can be used as a daily moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and give you a subtle glow. We also love our Colour-Me-Dark Sunless Tanning Lotion as a DIY sunless tanner for when you need a quick tan that will last for days.
Get Warmer Skin Even On Colder Days
Just because Calgary is having an unseasonably cold winter, doesn’t mean you can’t have a little bit of color. With the right products and techniques, you can have sun-kissed skin all year long. So don’t let the cold weather keep you from looking and feeling your best. Follow these tips to make your airbrush tan shine through the winter!
