Tanning Hints and Tips

  1.  14K5351Do not apply any perfume, deodorant, oils or moisturisers to the skin prior to Tan application.
  2. Hair removal should be performed at least 24 hours prior to Tanning.
  3. It is imperitive to exfoliate your entire body and face prior to self tanning to avoid tan build up on dry skin.  Pay particular attention to dry areas of the body such as elbows, knees and ankles.
  4. Wear dark coloured, loose fitting clothing after Tan application.  Be aware the colour guide may stain light hair, man made fibres and wool.
  5. Do not shower for a minimum of 1 hour after Tan application, we recommend for full product development, the Tan remains on the skin for 2 hours.
  6. Do not participate in any activity which may cause perspiration for at least 12 hours after the Tan application.
  7. It is fine to leave the Tan on overnight and shower the next day. Some Tan colour may transfer to the bed linen which, depending on the fabric, may or may not wash out.
  8. Apply moisturiser liberally after your Tan application to ensure tan longevity and even fading
  9. Exfoliate the skin every 4 days to ensure even fading.
  10. Pat dry the skin after showering or bathing, avoid rubbing the skin.
  11. Avoid swimming pools as chlorine can bleach the Tan.  If swimming is on the agenda, reapply Self Tan/Gradual Tan to sustain tan longevity. We recommend our Twisted Truffle Tan Mousse and creme Bebe for these purposes.
  12. Always apply a sunscreen even when Tan has been applied to the skin, as Tan doesn’t contain sun protection. The No. 1 most important thing to remember is that you don't really have a Tan. You may look good and feel good, but your artificial Tan does not protect you from the sun. If you're planning on sporting your faux Tan in the outside, use a good sunscreen.
