PREPARATION BEFORE APPOINTMENT
- MOISTURIZE! Applying a water(aqua)-based paraban-free moisturizer DAILY will hydrate your skin before the application. Hydrated skin tans deeper resulting in a longer-lasting tan. Hydrate from within: water intake also contributes greatly so hydrated skin resolution in a longer-lasting tan.
1-2 Days Before
- Shower, Shave/Wax, Exfoliate
- Use a non-abrasive exfoliant (wash cloth is fine) and gently exfoliate removing top layer of old skin
- Salt or Beaded exfoliants should be used 72 hours prior as it may create small freckles in open pores or spots and uneven fading.
- Manicures and pedicures should also be taken care of prior to your session
- Showering day of appointment is fine, but do so using lukewarm water if possible
Day Of Appointment
- Dark, loose clothing is recommended to wear after application while the solution develops.
- No lotion or deodorant
- Make-up remover towelettes are provided as well as sticky-feet and a hairnet
- Plan on not showering or perspiring/exercising for at least 12 hours (Rapid Solution 2-4 hours)
AFTERCARE AND MAINTENANCE
- Wait the recommended time to allow tan to develop before your first shower, at minimum. You can always leave it on longer for a darker, deeper tan as the solution continues to develop for up to 24 hours.
Your first shower: Rinse, no soap. This will remove the bronzer (make-up) but the tan will continue to develop for up to 24 hours if you would like it to get even darker after the bronzer has been washed away. Adversely, if the tan is TOO dark, using soap will tone it down. So if you like the results, just rinse!
Pat dry after showering
The longer and hotter the shower, the faster your tan will fade
Chlorine is a bleaching agent and will speed up fading drastically. Sunblock is recommended to lock in tan before entering chlorinated spas or pools.
MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE! Moisturize twice daily with a mineral-oil free, paraben-free, WATER-based (aqua) lotion. This will ensure proper fading as your skin naturally exfoliates and is very important. I repeat: very important, so Moisturize!!
PRODUCTS TO AVOID
