Preparation and Aftercare

Preparation

  • Exfoliate and moisturise the night before your tan, paying attention to dry areas such as knees, elbows and ankles.
  • Wax/shave at least 24 hours before your tan to allow pores time to close, otherwise a dotting effect may occur.
  • Do not use moisturiser on the day of your tan.
  • Remove make-up, deodorant, perfume and creams prior to having your tan.
  • Wear underwear/a bikini or swimsuit, or anything else you feel comfortable in for your treatment.

Aftercare

  • Wear loose dark clothing after your tan. Any tight clothing may cause wear marks.
  • Do not shower or bathe for 6-8 hours (the development period).
  • Do not exercise or swim during the development period, as sweating or prolonged exposure to water will fade your new tan.
  • Try not to touch your skin during the development time as your palms may get stained.
  • Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! This helps to keep your tan for longer.
  • Avoid long hot baths as they speed up the exfoliation process.
  • Dab or pat skin dry after a shower, do not rub.
  • After 5 days exfoliate and moisturise to slowly remove the tan and to keep it looking natural.
