The result is huge: Instant confidence, instant tone, you will look and FEEL slimmer, even your teeth will appear whiter. Now, the good news is there are a few very simple things you can do to maintain your beautiful tan for longer, and all of these things are also VERY good for your skin. Follow these top tips to maximise your tan and enjoy healthy skin - make your skin love you! 1: Exfoliate before you spray tan. The key to a long-lasting tan. Your spray tan is applied to the outermost layer of your skin, which sheds constantly. For this reason it is important to exfoliate often, and for the best spray tan results, its very important to exfoliate right before you tan to remove as much of the dead skin as possible. Remember to pay special attention to your ankles, knees and elbows. Try: VuTan Tan Remover 2: Wash wisely. Have you heard how shampoos containing sulphate can strip your hair of its colour? The same goes for body washes. Using a body cleanser which is free of Sulphates, Petrochemicals and other chemical fillers means you’ll be doing your skin a huge favour AND you won’t end up washing your new tan down the drain. Try: VuTan Tan Saver Body Wash 3: Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. You really need to be doing this anyway right!? Dry skin makes for a patchy tan. Nothing dehydrates your skin like the sun, so avoid that too, and drink lots of water to hydrate from the inside out. Have you ever drunk 2 litres of water a day for 3+ days in a row? You will feel fresher, and brighter.. we challenge you to try! Try: OzTan Kakadu Plum Body Moisturiser 4: Enhance your tan using shimmer products - try it for a night out on your arms and legs for an extra glow. The shimmer will also disguise any patchy areas or fading tan. The hydration from the cream is also a bonus. Try: VuTan Moisturising Body Shimmer 5: Avoid jumping in for a dip :( Chlorine and salt water eats away at any fake tan, so if you want to maintain it, try and avoid swimming.
