Basically, it’s absolutely essential to ensure that your skin is ready for sun exposure. From rugged exfoliation techniques to strategic moisturizing and smart-but-fun protection, each step plays a vital role in attaining the ideal summer tan. And it’s also crucial to continue your grooming routine with some post-tan care after achieving you desired shade. First up is moisturizing your skin to prevent drying. Then, to prolong the glow, comes after-sun products. Additionally, adopting a consistent post-tan skincare routine, as mentioned earlier, will help ensure an impeccable tan throughout the season while also keeping your skin healthy and constantly nourished.
