AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE YOUR SUNLESS TAN:
Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate.
We cannot overstress the importance of pre-session exfoliation. 24 hours prior to your session, clear away any dry, dead skin cells with a ph balancing oil free scrub. This is important to ensure even color and long lasting results.
Protect your skin’s PH levels
Avoid using bar soaps, high ph shower products, or in shower moisturizers. These products can interfere with the DHA bronzing reaction in the skin.
Avoid shaving, waxing, or use of depilatory creams for at least 24 hours prior to your session.
THE DAY OF YOUR SUNLESS TAN:
Don’t create sunless barriers
Skip the lotion and makeup. While moisturizing your skin in the days following your tanning session can make it last longer, applying moisturizers and lotions can interfere with the bronzing spray absorbing into your skin. If you do wear makeup the day of your tan, remove it before spray tanning to get the most even tan on your face. Also, use deodorant sparingly. Believe it or not, it could interact with the spray and turn your armpits a not-so-fab shade of green.
Remove any make up prior to the sunless treatment
