1) Cool Showers
Hot baths can dehydrate your skin, leading to faster peeling. Stick to cool showers and use a moisturising shower oil to really lock-down your colour.

2) Moisturise
There's no better way to hang on to sexy summer skin than by slathering on the lotion. Post-holiday you should upgrade to a body butter and lotion-up every day. 

3) Exfoliate 
It can feel like the last thing on your mind but it's important to give your body a weekly exfoliation to help remove dull, parched surface cells and prepare the skin for the self-tanning to come.

4) Facial self-tan
Your face is the first thing people notice about you and a sun-kissed complexion makes you look fresh-from-the-plane pretty. In our experience, many gradual tans for face are so subtle we hardly notice them but a glow booster serum is one of the few that gives skin a dreamy golden tint after a couple of applications. 

5) Gradual tan 
The secret to extending your tan is to create a simple ritual that's easy to maintain. A gradual tan is what's needed here: something you can slap on as readily as a body lotion, straight after your morning shower, and get dressed without waiting for it to dry. The subtle colour will enhance your tan without looking overdone and you can reapply every two days without streaks.
