Best Products To Extend Your Tan

We work diligently all year long for that well-deserved two-week vacation. But there’s nothing more depressing than going back to work and noticing your pretty tan begin to fade away. From tan-enhancing lotions to dry oil sprays, we’ve rounded up five products that will extend your gorgeous summer glow!

1 of 5
  • Victoria’s Secret After Sun Tan-Enhancing Lotion ($12): This creamy, nourishing daily lotion contains shea butter and sweet almond oil, which helps to enhance any tan (faux or not!).

  • Kate Somerville 360 Tan Enhancing Moisturizer ($48): While this is a bit on the pricier side, the unique formula conditions and moisturizes skin, helping to seal post-sun glows by preventing peeling and dryness.

  • Australian Gold Bronzing Intensifier Dry Oil Spray ($7.79): If you’re looking for instant color, this drugstore buy boasts an exotic blend of natural bronzers for faster and longer color (without the greasy residue!).

  • St. Tropez Self Tan Tan Booster ($30): Whether you’re rocking a faux glow or a true sun tan, this caramel-tinted lotion provides just the right amount of color to intensify an existing tan. We also like that this tube is perfect for any skin tone (plus paraben- and sulfate-free!).

  • Lorac SelfTanTalizer Body Bronzing Gradual Self-Tanner & Mitt ($34): Sometimes, instant self-tanners don’t always provide the best results. If you have the time, we recommend Lorac’s instant bronzing kit, which includes a mitt to help safely build natural, long-lasting results. Major bonus: this formula includes anti-aging ingredients!
