Summer is here! Finally! While you’ve your fun adventures in the sun (and used sunscreen hopefully) you probably gained a gorgeous golden glow to your skin. But how can you make it last for as long as possible? Well, one way you can do that is to exfoliate your skin so the last layer lasts as long as possible. Shaving can also be a way to exfoliate.
Guys, shave before you tan.
Speaking of exfoliating, you’re already doing it. Every time you shave, you’re shedding skin cells. And if you wax anything (like your chest) you’re shedding even more.
“Shaving is a great exfoliant,” says Plotkin, “but always shave before you get a tan—a day in advance, so you’re not irritated.”
