Tips for a long lasting tan

The hot weather has been upon us for quite some time and as we head into the final days of summer here are a couple of tips on how to prevent peeling and making your tan last way into the fall season.

Tip #1: It’s well known that the best way to prevent yourself from peeling is to keep your body moisturized at all times. Before sun exposure always moisturize your entire body with an Aloe Vera moisturizer before applying your sunscreen. My favorite and HIGHLY recommended is the Jason Natural Products 84% Aloe Vera Hand & body lotion.

After sun exposure, switch to a gel formula of Aloe Vera, Jason Natural products also carries gel formula which is also very recommended. Even if you’re not sun burned, still use it, it will make your tan last longer and your skin will look healthier.

Tip #2: Here’s what to do before you head to the beach and while you’re there:  Brew a pot of tea, let it cool down all the way. In a spray bottle, add a half cup of water, a few table spoons of Aloe Vera gel or moisturizer and a half cup of the cooled tea. Shake well! Take it with you to the beach and spray it on throughout the day. Do not rub it just spray and let it sit. Also, don’t forget to apply sunscreen throughout the day as well. This will help keep your skin hydrated while moisturizing it as the sun takes care of the rest.

    Lol, us Asians try to stay far away from the sun as possible in summer while you guys want a tan. We prefer white skin. 😀
    I use Aloe Vera as a moisturizer too, but for a different purpose: a long lasting not tan skin! It made a huge difference, I can actually see my skin is healthier and glowing after just 2 days of using it as a face mask. (I used natural Aloe Vera, planted at home.) 😉 Magical plant really.

      Haha, as I age, I’ve been trying to stay away myself, but I do like to get a nice golden tone here and there just so kick the winter away. It really is a magical plant and I never thought to actually grow it at home. Good idea and great tip!! 🙂
