Post #3 The Honeymoon Tan 

Your newlywed bliss will last through your whole honeymoon – your tan should too! Here are few key tips to extend the life of your tan:

  Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! I can’t emphasize this enough! The more hydrated your skin is, the less will flake off, preventing uneven and splotchy color.

  Use a sunless tanning lotion to maintain an even color. Sunless tanners have a low percentage of DHA, which builds color subtly and slowly. As your airbrush tan fades, your sunless tanning lotion will take over. A few of our favorites are Infinity Sun Glow on the Go and Jergen’s Natural Glow.

  Always use sunscreen in the sun! Just because you look like you’ve been lying on a beach for a week, doesn’t mean your skin isn’t susceptible to a burn. Keep your skin protected by applying regularly

  If your honeymoon will involve soaking in hot tubs or long dips in an ocean or pool (lucky you!), it’s natural for your tan to fade more quickly. Think of investing in a bronzer you can dust on or a tinted moisturizer – touch-ups are easy!
