Pre-tanning tips:

  • Shower and exfoliate skin, do so 2-12 hours before appointment for best results. Avoid super moisturizing body washes (Dove or oil based scrubs). I recommend exfoliating gloves or Sjolie All Natural Scrub.

  • Shave/Wax anything you need to, preferably the day before tan.

  • Do NOT put on any products such as deodorant, moisturizers, makeup or perfumes before your tan. These can affect the development of your tan.

  • Choose a dark colored bikini/bathing suit/g-string. Wearing bottoms is recommended but not mandatory.

  • I recommend exfoliating at the end of your shower as your skin will be softened for good exfoliation and you will most likely scrub away any shampoo residue etc.

Post-tanning tips:

  • Wear loose fitting clothing while your tan develops to ensure you don't get lines from tight bands.

  • Do not shower for at least 8-12 hours after application or up to 24 hours maximum. If you got a Rapid Tan, leave to develop 1-6 hours or recommended time.

  • Avoid touching your body or face until you've showered off the bronzer, this could cause solution to get on the palms of your hands and discolor them!

  • Try to avoid skin to skin contact while tan is developing, this can cause sweating and affect the outcome of your tan.

  • When showering try to avoid exfoliating (loofahs,shaving), exfoliating after a tan lessens the longevity of the tan.

  • Now using moisturizing body wash/soap is acceptable.

  • When drying off try to pat dry instead of rubbing.

  • Moisturize! Once a day is fine. Twice a day is better. This will help your tan last longer and fade more evenly. I recommend using a Tan Extender Lotion.

  • For my gym goers, make sure you wait until your tan has      developed and you have showered off the bronzer before      getting overly sweaty. This could cause drips!
