I just came back from a vacation in the Dominican Republic (I know…I’m sad to be back) and I swear I felt the cool Montreal weather wearing my tan away almost instantly. I know there’s no miracle cream that will make my tan last forever, but I’m all about prolonging it as long as possible. I look and feel so much better with a sun-kissed glow, don’t you?
The Ultra-Hydrating After-Sun Moisturizer ($36) from Clarins has been my go-to cream since I got back last week. I apply it almost three times a day (I know, crazy!) This cream is not to be confused with an after-sun treatment for burns. It’s a cream to be used after you tan to keep your skin hydrated to prevent flaking.
It leaves my skin super silky which I just love. It hydrates much more than any regular moisturizer so it prevents peeling or at least keeps it under control. I just applied some a few minutes ago and even though it’s a rich cream, it’s not greasy and is quickly absorbed into the skin.
It brings out my tan even more so naturally, I love it. However, I’ll have to accept that eventually, my tan will fade. But with this cream, I don’t have to accept that nasty fact just yet. For now, I’m tanned and happy.
