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.
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
