Holiday tans always leave you feeling healthy and looking radiant, but the key to maintaining your colour and avoiding the dreaded peeling is slathering on the after sun. After sun replaces the moisture lost and instantly cools the skin. If you’re on holiday for up to a week, take it slow and make sure you take regular breaks from the sun, covering up your shoulders and back and drinking plenty of water.
