How To Prolong Your Summer Tan

September has arrived and your vacation may seem nothing more than a distant memory...but your tan lines say otherwise. 
Find out how to get the most mileage out of your tan with our five essential tips.

1. Cold Showers 
(Or as cool as you can handle!)
Hot baths and showers dehydrate the skin, which means faster peeling. Showering at a cooler temperature will help your skin retain more moisture, and in turn your tan will last longer.

2. Swap Your Body Wash 
Consider swapping out your normal body wash for an extra moisturizing version, or better yet a Shower Oil. This will help lock in as much moisture as possible while washing.

3. H2O A Go
Yes, hydration is key here, in every form. You may no be longer in 35 degree heat, but that's no reason to cool off on drinking water. Not only does it help keep your skin looking plump and fresh, it also prolongs the life of those nicely tanned cells of yours.

4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
Slather on as much product as you can to maintain a sunkissed glow. This will help lock your tan in by minimizing skin flaking. Try to avoid lotions that include petroleum, and instead stick to natural moisturizers such as cocoa butter, aloe vera and coconut oil. These will soak in deeper and help nourish your skin cells.

5. Eat Your Greens
Vitamin E is essential to great skin. Broccoli, apricots, apples, watermelon and sunflower seeds are rich in this all-star vitamin, so eat up for gorgeous, glowing skin.

3 Easy Beach Hairstyles

1. Top of the Knots

The simplest style on our list by far: the quick and easy top knot. It's every surfer girl's default hairstyle and our personal favorite - nothing beats a top knot bun on a hot day at the beach.

2. Swimming With The Fishes

 While the fishtail braid takes a little practice to master, your efforts will pay off when you're looking like a mermaid freshly washed up on the shore.

3.  Boho Babe

Make like Nicole Richie, grab a scarf and go boho. Tie any way you like to add an edge to your beach or poolside look. This style also has the added bonus of protecting your scalp from the sun, all-important in our books!
