POST TAN AFTERCARE

  • Please avoid contact with water and refrain

          from activities that may cause you to sweat.

 

  • Please avoid touching any part of your body until your first rinse.

           It can cause discoloration and stain your palms and fingertips.

 

  • Your first shower is a body rinse with warm water only. 

        When rinsing, you will see some of your color coming off.

       Rinse until the water in the bottom of your shower becomes clear.

      Don't use soap, shampoo/conditioner and hair removal cream when rinsing

         Avoid scrubbing or the use of exfoliants for the duration of your tan.

  • When being tanned with our Signature and Organic Solutions:

​        Please wait 10-12 hours before rinsing for the best results.

          The longer you wait to rinse, the darker your tan will be.

  • When being tanned with our Rapid Solutions:

         Please wait 2-5 hours before rinsing for the best results.

        Do not leave the Rapid Solutions on for longer than 5 hours.

        2 hours for a light tan

       3 hours for a medium tan

       4-5 hours for a dark tan 

 

  • You can shower regularly 24 hours after your rinse.

           When shaving be gentle, use a new razor and avoid using shaving cream.

  • After your shower pat your skin dry, do not rub!

          You want to continue to pat dry after each shower

              and any time you get wet for the duration of your tan.  

  • Moisturize twice a day after your first rinse and stay hydrated!

           These are key factors in maintaining your tan for 5-10 days!

  • Perfume, body sprays and bug spray that are sprayed

          directly on the skin can cause discoloration and fading.

          Instead, spray clothing or spray into the air and walk through

            instead of spraying the product directly onto the skin.

 

  • For the best results and a long lasting tan,      

      the following ingredients, products and activities 

  can lighten, discolor and cause  your tan to fade faster.

      I recommend avoiding or limiting the use for the duration of your tan.
