Skin Preparation Instructions

 

  • Exfoliate with body polish & moisturize the body daily 3-5 days before your tan application. Concentrating on dry areas such as the elbows, knees, ankles and the back of your hands.

 

  • Wax/shave 48-72 hours before your tan application. Waxing in advance allows the pores to close and prevents irritation and dotting appearance where hair has been removed.  

 

  • Shower before your tanning appointment using oil-free soap. 

     

  • Do not apply lotions, moisturizers, oils, perfumes, deodorants or makeup before tanning appointment. 

     

    • Wear loose, dark clothing to application. Tanner will transfer to anything you touch. Please avoid wearing socks and a bra as they will create lines. 

     

    • Avoid sweating as your tan could run and may leave marks.

     

    • Avoid chlorinated water, swimming after tan application. As the chlorinated water will bleach the tan and the longer you soak the body the quicker the tan will come off.

     

    • When showering after tan application, have a brief shower using water only. Avoid using soap or shower gels.  Pat your body dry avoid rubbing.
