Lock in your Summer Tan this Season

Read this in: 2 minutes

You’ve worked so hard this summer to get that beautiful bronze glow on your skin, and just because the cold weather is kicking in doesn’t mean that you have to give your tan the cold shoulder

From natural remedies and little cheats, here are our top tips to prolong your tan this autumn:

Drink Plenty of Water

We know this tip is an old one, but it’s also the best. Keeping hydrated is important fort healthy and beauty anyway, it keeps the skin plumped, smooth and can help with any problem skin. Drinking water also helps prolong the life of skin cells, including the beautiful bronzed ones on the surface.

Take Cool Showers

Taking hot baths can dehydrate your skin causing it to peel. Taking cool showers can help prevent your summer glow from making a swift exit.


You may have picked up on a slight theme here. Keeping your tan is all about keeping the skin fresh and hydrated. Moisturise your face and body daily to lock in your golden skin.

Sadly, there’s only so long you can maintain your golden glow before it starts to fade. So here are our top three tan products that can help you cheat your way to an autumn glow.
