Before

  • Exfoliate 24 hours prior to your session. Do not exfoliate the day of your appointment as the product can cause a barrier effecting the outcome of your tan.  Exfoliation is so important as the skin will be an even canvas + help your tan last longer.
  • Shaving or waxing at least 24 hours before your session.  Shaving right before will cause streaking on your legs.
  • Get your mani + pedis the day before your appointment.  The massage oils will cause a problem with the tan.
  • Oils, perfumes, lotions + deodorant will affect the development of your tan.  Avoid using these products on the day of your appointment.
  • Many soaps, hair shampoos + conditioners and shower products leave an invisible film on the skin.  Avoid showering the day of your appointment.  Along with product film, it hydrates your skin; this means that not all of the solution will be absorbed resulting in a lighter color.
  • Wear loose fitting, dark clothing to your tan.

Good:  sundress, loose joggers/sweat pants, loose t-shirt/tank top, loose shorts, flip flops, baggy sweatshirt

Bad:  leggings, jeggings, yoga pants, tight clothing (top or bottom), spandex clothing (top or bottom)

 

After

  • Keep yourself cool and dry until it is time for your rinse shower.  The solution stays on for 8-12 hours after your session.  DO NOT GET WET until it is time to rinse.  Water will ruin your developing tan.
  • After 8-12 hours, rinse off in the shower with water only (no soap).  Make sure to rinse until the water runs clear.
  • Do not rub your skin with a towel.  Instead pat dry.
  • To keep your tan as long as possible ensure you are applying moisture twice per day.
