It’s hard to say goodbye to summer—the season of bathing suits and sandals is on its way out and autumn days are moving in.

Understandably, a lot of us (particularly those in the northern climates) are reluctant to say farewell to the season and all it entails, like that perfect summer tan.

But just because the lazy days of summer are fading fast, that doesn’t mean your tan has to, as well. Keep your sun-kissed skin with these four tips.

You might be reluctant to exfoliate your skin in fear of sloughing off your tan, but have no fear—exfoliation actually helps your tan look better by getting rid of dull skin.

Older layers of dull, flaky cells make your skin appear paler, but a good scrub will uncover brighter, healthy-looking skin.

Use a gentle, exfoliating mask on your face. like Artistry Signature Select™ Polishing Mask, once or twice a week to keep your tan in tip-top shape.

Moisturize more

Like exfoliating, keeping your skin moisturized will eliminate any dullness caused by dry skin and extend the life of your tan.

Make sure you’re moisturizing at least twice a day to keep your glow hydrated and happy. Apply a lotion like G&H Refresh+™ Body Milk right out of the shower, while your skin is still a little damp, to lock in moisture.

You can also add an intensely hydrating face cream like Artistry Hydra-V™ Replenishing Moisture Cream to your nighttime skincare routine for an extra glow.

Drink up

Help prevent dull, flaky skin in the first place by making sure you’re drinking enough water throughout the day. The age-old advice is eight cups of water a day, but it can vary based on your diet and other factors.

You can even add a supplement like Truvivity™ by Nutrilite™ Hydrating System to help boost your hydration levels. Here are some more tips for hydration on the go.

Be bright

This one is more of a visual trick. Make your sun-kissed skin pop by pairing it with bright splashes of color—think candy pink lipstick, like Artistry Studio™ 2-in-1 Matte Lip Crayon Fuchsia Goddess, or Hawaiian punch-colored nail polish. This won’t technically extend your tan, but it will draw attention to it and give you that post-beach glow even in the depths of autumn.
