BEFORE:

  • Exfoliate skin at least 8 hours before your sunless session to smooth skin for even tanning results. Spend a little extra time on knees, elbows, feet, and hands

  • Shave at least 6 hours before your sunless tanning session. We always suggest shaving with soap and water only — no shaving cream, as shaving creams contain lanolin (an oil) that acts as a barrier between the tanning solution and the skin.

  • Any waxing should be done 1-2 days prior to your sunless tanning.

  • If skin is dry apply a light water based lotion lightly and evenly to skin at least 2 hours prior to your sunless tan.

  • Do not apply oils at any time prior to or after your sunless tan.

  • Remove make-up, moisturizer, perfume and deodorant prior to your sunless tanning application for best results.

  • Wear or bring dark, loose fitting clothing to wear after your tan 

  • Avoid wearing socks or shoes after your tanning session in order to allow the tan to develop properly on your feet.

 

AFTER:

  • Wait at least 8 to 12 hours after application before you shower. This will allow time for the self-tanning reaction to occur on the skin. The longer you wait, the longer your tan will likely last.

  • Don’t worry if you see color wash off from your first shower, this is normal. What you see washing off is the immediate cosmetic bronzer and what is left behind is a beautiful sunless tan.

  • Do not apply moisturizer until after your first shower, for this could affect the immediate reaction of the sunless solution on the skin and cause streaking.

  • Do not exercise until after your first shower.

  • Moisturize daily, especially after bathing, to maintain your sunless tan. For best results use a water based moisturizer. Don’t use oil based moisturizers, they can cause blotchy areas.

  • Do not exfoliate skin for at least 48 hours after your sunless tanning application. When you do exfoliate, do so gently and evenly to preserve an even sunless tan.

  • If sun-bathing remember to wear a sunscreen. Sunless products do not contain sunscreen. Although you look like you have a tan, you will still need a sunscreen to prevent your skin from burning.

  • Pat your skin dry after a bath or shower. Rubbing your skin may rub off your tan
