When I go on holiday to a hot destination, I really like to come away with a beautiful suntan. Having a sun kissed glow is important to me as I love the way it makes my skin look and the confidence that it gives me. Achieving a tan safely, using plenty of SPF is always at the forefront of my mind but when my holiday is over, my focus switches to maintaining my tanned skin. In this post, I am going to share with you how to prolong your holiday tan and the best product to use.
For a lot of people, when they’re away on holiday, the sun dries out their skin and it can often peel or flake. Keeping your skin well exfoliated will certainly help with this, whichever method you choose, but it is so important to moisturise your skin to keep it hydrated as well. The best way to do this is with a body butter or aftersun. These two steps should be completed while you’re away and while you’re back at home and will certainly help to keep your tan but the absolute best way that I have found to prolong a suntan is by using the Lancaster Tan Maximizer.
The Lancaster Tan Maximizer is a soothing aftersun lotion that you apply to your skin after you’ve been in the sun. It contains Lancaster’s reinforced Tan Activator Complex which was developed for a prolonged natural melanin release in the skin. This helps to boost your tan as though you were still in the sun which is why this product is so effective, even when you return home from sunnier climates!
For all it is lightweight, it does a great job at hydrating the skin and leaves it feeling beautifully soft and looking silky smooth. If you’re using it on holiday and perhaps you find your skin is feeling a little tender if you’ve mistakenly spent a little too long in the sun, then I think you’d find this lotion to actually feel quite soothing on sun kissed skin. The soothing and moisturising properties that this aftersun lotion has are what makes it aid the skins natural recovery process. This decreases your chances of peeling because your skin is hydrated, supple and smooth.
It has this beautiful perfumed scent that I’ve come to associate with happy holiday memories and it lingers lightly on your skin.
I’ve tried out various aftersun products and moisturisers over the years but nothing keeps my tan hanging around for as long as this one does. While exfoliating and moisturising will help to support your tan, I’ve found that using this lotion once a day really helps to keep my skin looking sun kissed for longer.
I’ve been using it for years now and highly recommend it.
You can buy the Lancaster Tan Maximizer online here and you can also pick it up in duty free at the airport.
