Moisturizing your skin has a ton of benefits, one of them happens to be keeping that sun-kissed look a little longer. Cleansing and moisturizing are the key components to maintaining healthy, youthful skin. Cleansing removes dirt, grime, and dead skin cells, but cleansers also have a harmful effect on the skin by drying it out. Once you know your skin type, there are a few basic categories into which your skin will likely fall. Most skin will range from ‘oily’ to ‘dry,’ with ‘normal’ between the two. The other two main categories are ‘sensitive’ and ‘mature.’ Good body wash products normally contain essential oils such as: coconut oil, olive oil and jojoba oils that help retain moisture. If you can, visit shops that specialize in natural products or consult a dermatologist for recommendations. Avoid cleansers with alcohol because they strip the skin of its natural oils. .

It’s one of the hardest things to do when you are flaunting a fresh tan, but it’s so essential to exfoliate! “Exfoliating is a great way to remove dead skin cells and ensure your skin maintains its summer glow… avoid exfoliation if your skin has any cuts, or is sunburned.” Don’t forget to exfoliate your face too, it will have had a tough time being exposed to sun, chlorine, salt, wind and sun cream over the last few months!
We don’t know about you, but once we return from our holiday our face always suddenly decides to lose all its colour! There’s no worse look than a tanned body and white face, so be sure to invest in a good bronzer for those first few weeks post-vacation.
After hot temperatures and travelling drinking lots of water is essential! This will help skin to recover and will discourage any unwanted dryness. Experts recommend we drink two litres of water a day to give our bodies what we need. What I dailiy use is a this simple trick; Try a simple slice of lemon for a citrus burst, in a glass of water or help rid your body of toxins with cucumber and lime water. Also don’t forget herbal and green teas are packed full of antioxidants which can aid the recovery of sun damage on your skin. For all the tea lovers check this out; http://www.cafecouture.eu/en/
Self Tanner & Bronzer
“Self-tanner is a great way-and a safe way-to keep a bronzed glow.” There are a number of self-tanners out there to sample. If you can’t find one that works for you, or fake tanning just isn’t your thing, go for a bronzer instead. Remember not to apply the bronzer all over your face. Apply bronzer where the sun would naturally hit your face and create dimension. Go for a color that is one or two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Get the look, without the damage!
In terms of looking tanned this is probably the oldest trick in the book, but just remember there’s no better way to shoe off your holiday glow that by keeping to a pale wardrobe. The light shades will contrast and enhance your new darker skin colour. We still have some white dresses in stock or wear our Bannerfish onepiece as a bodysuit www.oceancouture.eu
