Keep and maintain your tan lasting
Keep a nice tan long after the summer is always a bit complicated. Yet back in the daily routine work underground sleep, how many of us see their tan fade gradually with memories of times spent in the sun … Or worse, looking wistfully marks left on their feet by sandals when they take their morning shower!
Keep up your tan in the winter is still possible! Just stick to one discipline: activate cell renewal, well hydrated, and follow a diet appropriate editor.
Keep your tan: maintenance of the skin
First we must give our skin all the moisture it needs to keep its cells in good condition and not to “age” prematurely. Cell renewal is every three weeks, so it is important to extend the maximum life span of cells “tanned” of our skin. This requires proper hydration, with the usual moisturizing cream, body lotion…
Some products combine called after-sun moisturizer with small amounts of self-tanner: enough to keep the complexion without having to make application of tanning sessions themselves. These products are increasingly popular and offer excellent results.

Last resort: the self-tanning
No, it’s not cheating! The tanning stimulates the production of melanin in the epidermis. Used regularly it keeps a natural tan, without unsightly marks or hyper-pigmentation. Many textures are available on the market: cream, gel, foam … Depending on your skin and your preference, you have no excuses to resume work as white as an aspirin!
