POST TAN AFTERCARE

  • Avoid contact with water and refrain from activities that may cause you to sweat.

 

  • Avoid touching any part of your body until your first rinse. 

           This can result in the staining of your palms and fingertips.

 

  • Your first shower is a rinse using warm water only. 

     Don't use soap, hair products or hair removal creams when rinsing.

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

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

  • When being tanned with our Signature and Organic Solutions:

       Please wait 8-10 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 2-4 hours before rinsing for the best results.

       Do not leave the Rapid Solutions on for longer than 4 hours.

     Your rinse time will affect the color outcome.

2 hours for a light tan

3 hours for a medium tan

 4 hours for a dark tan 

  •      After you 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.  

  • You can shower regularly 24 hours after your rinse.

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

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

  • Perfume, body and bug sprays that are applied 

          directly on the skin can cause discoloration and fading.

         Instead, apply to clothing or spray into the air and walk through.

  • These are key factors to maintain your spray tan for 5-10 days!

  • For the best results and a long lasting tan, 

         I recommend avoiding or limiting the use of the following 

        ingredients, products and activities for the duration of your tan.

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