Tips to keep your tan after summer

So go take a pencil and paper because surely thanks to these lines you will be able to show off your palm again.
Eat a diet rich in vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of those components that is closely linked to the creation of collagen. For those of you who don’t know, this substance is what is responsible for giving the skin firmness and elasticity.
All this without mentioning that it acts as a natural barrier to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Among the foods that stand out for their great contribution in vitamin C, fruits such as orange or kiwi stand out.
Sport is not only going to serve you to maintain your figure and increase your mood thanks to the secretion of endorphins.
Exercising also encourages and stimulates circulation throughout our entire blood supply. In this way, oxygen will reach the entire skin much more effectively, thus making us look much more lush, tanned and rejuvenated.
Drink plenty of water
If we really want our complexion to always be as smooth as possible, water also plays a very relevant role. For this reason, at Natural we recommend you drink at least two liters of water daily. Thanks to this, all areas of your skin will be perfectly oxygenated.
Hydrate and exfoliate your skin
The cosmetics market offers a multitude of moisturizing and exfoliating creams rich in nutrients that turn out to be the most beneficial for our skin. And on top of that, they can help you maintain that dark tone that you want so much. The truth is that many of them achieve medium-long-term results that will leave you pleasantly surprised.
