Follow our tips below to maintain your natural sun tan.
Dry skin is the enemy of any tan, natural or otherwise, so hydrating your skin is key to maintaining that glow. Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil is PACKED with 8 skin nourishing oils, making it the perfect product to rehydrate your skin when you’re out of the sun. Moisturise or apply a body oil twice a day, and always replenish moisture after a shower.
It might sound silly, but keeping up your water intake is just as important as moisturising when it comes to preventing dry, chapped skin. Your skin is an organ, so a dehydrated body will wreak havoc on your complexion, leading to dullness, peeling and dry patches.
You still need to exfoliate when you have a tan, but go easy on it to avoid over exfoliating. Dry, dead skin cells give the skin an overall dull appearance which will hide your golden bronze complexion. So lightly exfoliate to reveal your glow! A little bit of Summer Salt Scrub never goes astray.
Boiling hot showers dry out the skin surprisingly quickly, so opt for lukewarm showers where possible. Dried out skin will flake off, taking your tan with it.
Hopping out of the shower feeling ‘squeaky-clean’? That’s actually not ideal – it means you’ve stripped your natural oils from your skin. Steer clear of body washes containing nasties like SLS. And use one that’s pH balanced to 5.0 – 5.5, which is the healthy pH for skin.
A frequently asked question from our sun tan lovers in the United States is 'can I use my Melanoboost® products in a tanning bed?'
The short answer is yes, you can.
The process starts before your visit to the salon. Apply your Melanoboost for a few days leading up to UV exposure to boost melanin levels. This is designed to prepare the skin for sun exposure and set it up for accelerated sun tanning. This step is key for the deepest, darkest tan in the shortest time.
The first thing you will notice when looking at the Melanoboost product range is the three vibrant coloured bottles of YELLOW, CORAL, and BLUE.
Before we talk about the differences between Melanoboost’s three products, it’s important to understand what is the same. PEPTIDES are the fundamental element that powers the entire Melanoboost product range beyond the capabilities of any other sun tan lotion, oil or cream.
NOW let’s take a look at the differences between the three Melanoboost products.
