How to maintain your tan

How to maintain your tan.
We’re back from the sea, and for many of us vacation is over, safe for a few sporadic days at the sea in September to enjoy a few last beautiful sunny days. All in all, we were good this year, we admit it: our tans are perfect! If you’ve seen my video in which I share all the secrets to getting a perfect tan, you already know what I’m talking about!
But now that September has rolled around, the moment to begin working on maintaining your tan for as long as possible has arrived.
It has been proven that if it isn’t cared for properly, a tan fades away within 3 weeks. Let’s get to it straight away: here are a few secrets to get started on RIGHT AWAY!!

How to maintain your tan for as long as possible: here are the tricks!

Watch what you eat.
As I told you in my video dedicated to tanning, the same precautions you take before exposing yourself out in the sun should be considered after exposing oneself in the sun as well. Drink lots of water, eat foods rich in vitamins such as fruits and vegetables, and in particular foods that are rich in betacarotene and omega 3 (like salmon!).

Avoid saunas, hot showers or baths.
High temperatures accelerate the skin peeling process: try to take showers and baths with warm water instead of with hot water, and avoid saunas and steam rooms. While you’re at it, beware of strong air conditioning: it dries out the skin!

Fall-Winter 2016 2017 Trends: everything, but really everything that will be in style!!  

Tuxedo Jacket: one of the trends that continues to be in vogue this season that is worth pointing out is surely the jacket, in dark shades and especially in black: a real tuxedo jacket.
Oversize: this season the new kid on the block for jeans are… The oversized kind, without forgetting the classic jeans jacket, oversized, 90’s style, with and without appliqués.
Military Style: we’re talking about military green accessories, very high-waisted pants with large buttons but especially about structured jackets with rigid shoulders, golden buttons and toggles.
Skirt with frills: the A-line skirt is back in style. It is THE skirt to have this season (also because it highlights the waist and hides those few extra pounds!)

A Tutto Stile! by Irene Colzi: my first book, published by Mondadori!

A Tutto Stile! by Irene Colzi: my first book, published by Mondadori!

A Tutto Stile!. I still have to realize that I can finally write this for real: I wrote a book. And it’s not just any book. “A Tutto Stile! » published by Mondadori and available in bookstores throughout Italy as of September 13th. My book. A crazy year, with crazy amounts of work. A year of “I can’t do it!” followed by a series of “Yes, I can do it, come on!”. A year in which I gave everything I had to give: a year rich with enthusiasm, hysterical fits, ideas, ups and downs and juggling things better than the best juggler.

It was a year of chapters written in planes, trains, cruise ships, hotel rooms, in the Caribbean, in Asia, in Europe, at the sea and in the mountains, during the night, the day or early in the morning. Writing a book isn’t easy; it’s a real challenge I had with myself. When I met with the Mondadori team for the first time just over a year ago, I really did think to myself that I would never be able to summarize my ideas and write them all down on paper. I saw it as an insurmountable challenge, especially with the frenetic life I lead.

 

A Tutto Stile! by Irene Colzi, coming to bookstores near you on September 13th!

Writing a book means taking a step back from the world: only by isolating oneself from everything is it possible to put one’s thoughts, feelings and emotions down on paper as vividly as they appear in your mind. And for a multi-tasker such as myself, always on the go, it wasn’t easy. I learnt to do it, week after week, month after month, and it wasn’t long before the hours spent writing flew by without me even realizing it. Even the pictures in this book are special to me: the unpublished pictures you’ll find inside, as well as the cover, were taken by Giova and thought out entirely by ourselves: a book that was 100% created by me, which is something I’m very proud of. Seeing the complete product today gives me a huge sense of joy! “A Tutto Stile!”, published by Mondadori is my first book. I still can’t believe I actually wrote it! :)

“A tutto Stile!” is a 200 page book focused on who I am now and who I was before you got to know me on the web, and everything I know about style. In this book I’m opening up like never before and featuring all the fashion we love, the accessible kind with a few hints of reasoned madness. The fashion that makes us special. The spine of the book makes this resonate, and is a great preview of what my book is about.

Enhancing your tan: what to wear and what colours will make you shine!

Enhancing your tanComing back to reality after a vacation is always (and I repeat always) quite the traumatic experience. But ladies, let’s try to think as positively as possible :P The summer left us with golden, sun-kissed skin.. Now that we’re back home it’s time to show off the tan we’ve been working on for months and months!
On today’s post you’ll find the colours and pairings that will enhance your tan to its utmost potential.. Ready? Let’s begin!!

 

 Enhancing your tan: what to wear and what colours will make you shine!

WHITE WITH GOLDEN ACCESSORIES 

For those of you who have golden skin, white is the colour of choice to emphasize the dark shade of the skin, creating a pleasant contrast. What you may not know is that the effect is even nicer if the colour white is paired with gold tone accessories. Unlike silver, gold intensifies golden skin, thus illuminating it. You’ve got to see it to believe it!

Adidas Gazelle and an off-the-shoulder top
Adidas Gazelle. Good day girls!! Today I’m sharing a look I wore a few days ago featuring two key pieces. The first is the off-the-shoulder top which we’ve mentioned many times before including in this post which if you haven’t read already I suggest you do (yes, I really do love this trend!), and the second can be found on my feet..

Adidas Gazelle and an off-the-shoulder top

The Adidas Gazelle are back in style: say goodbye (for the moment..) to the evergreen Stan Smiths, the new trend is all about the Gazelles. I chose mine in a shade of beige and I have to say that they are super versatile (other than being super comfortable). What do you think of this look? Here are all the details and the pictures :)
