Longer-lasting tans

How can I make my fake tan last longer?


There’s a few things you can do to prolong your fake tan. Thoroughly exfoliating before you apply self-tan will help promote longevity. Make sure you continue to moisturise your body daily, especially straight after bathing, to lock the moisture in. Excessive perspiration will cause your tan to fade, so if you have tanned yourself for a special occasion, you might want to avoid the gym for a few days.
