What’s as awesome as sun, backyard barbecues, and saluting the great American holiday that is Memorial Day? Taking the tan from your hard-earned holiday with you. If you’re anything like me (and most New Yorkers), your skin won’t feel the warmth of sun for eight months out of the year. So when time comes to shed those sleeves, my skin takes quite a beating.
We’ve already given you the 101 on the best self tanners and sunscreen is a no-brainer. But there’s more: aftersun care! Note: It’s not just about aloe anymore. Here are six not-your-average moisturizers that will keep your skin supple and your tan lasting longer than the day it took to get it. And don’t forget about that perfect bag to stash your weekend goodies.
Check out the gallery below for the sprays, lotions, and oils that will keep your Memorial Day tan going long after your one day off.
