Keep your holiday glow from fading into the sunset with these 3 golden rules
Glow from head to toe all the way into Autumn
Unfortunately, we can deny it no more, summer is coming to an end, and whether you’ve been jet-setting to exotic climes or sunning yourself a little closer to home, there’s nothing worse to prompt holiday blues than a fading tan! So, if you want to keep your glow a little further into Autumn, here are our 3 golden rules to keep that summer feeling for as long as possible...
Rule 1: Moisturize to help nourish dehydrated skin
If there’s one thing you need to do post-vacay, it’s this. After achieving a gorgeous golden glow, skin can become very dry as UV rays draw moisture out of skin cells and can often leave them damaged.
Your tan is likely to fade on your face the fastest, as it is the area that we touch, clean and expose the most, stimulating a higher turnover of cells. Use the ultra-hydrating Aquasource Gel, which keeps skin feeling newly moisturized for 48 hours after first application. Enriched with the regenerating Life Plankton, this formula will keep skin cells healthy and nourished to help prolong tan for as long as possible.
For your body, keep hold of your holiday glow by using Oil Therapy Huile Elixir for a nourishing and replenishing experience. Enriched with 3 precious oils, this oil-based moisturizer provides your skin cells with the ultimate in hydration.
While we’re on the subject of hydration, let’s just reiterate the importance of drinking water to keep skin cells nourished from the inside out. In the summer, our body makes it obvious that we need to drink water, however in the colder months, we often don’t get those signals of thirst. Drink at least 2 liters of water a day to keep skin cells nourished and to prolong their life.
Rule 2: Keep your showers cool
Go easy on the hot water during your daily shower. Long, hot showers can strip your skin cells of essential oils, therefore dehydrating your skin which can lead to skin cells flaking off and giving us a patchy tan. Use cooler water to avoid this and save your skin as well as the planet!
Couple a cold shower with a hydrating shower cream and see your golden glow last for weeks longer. Try out Lait De Douche for a nourishing shower experience, which, enriched with a variety of nourishing ingredients, olive oil and Vitamin E, will leave skin feeling intensely hydrated and keep you glowing from head to toe.
Rule 3: Gentle exfoliation keeps skin radiant
We know it sounds counter-intuitive, but yes, you still need to exfoliate. Dead skin cells can make our skin look dull and less glowy, so gently exfoliating can keep your skin healthy, luminous and will help to stimulate cellular regeneration. Do so very carefully in order to avoid scrubbing away your tan - use a light exfoliator such as Oil Therapy Huile de Gommage in order to achieve nourished, soft, rejuvenated and glowing skin.
