Please shave or wax your legs the night before your tan.
Exfoliate THOROUGHLY as well. This will remove dead skin and provide a new, smooth surface for your tan. Exfoliating helps to promote even coverage and lengthens the duration of the tan. Use a mesh sponge, loofah gloves, etc. (no oil based loofah scrubs).
DO NOT USE DOVE PRODUCTS! Dove soap and lotions leave a film on your skin that directly leads to a blotchy tan.
The Day Of Your Tan
Remove make-up, moisturizer, perfume and deodorant before your application.
It is recommended that you wear dark, loose fitting clothing. Solution washes out of most clothing very easily but tends to stain nylon, leather and Lycra materials.
Sandals or flip-flops are best to wear (unless raining, then wear covered shoes.)
A woman’s tan can be directly affected by her hormones. Considering her cycle, it can cause blotchiness or the color not to develop as dark as normally. It’s not common, but it happens.
Let your tan set for 8 hours and then rinse off in the shower with water only. Wait a full 24 hours before showering or taking a bath. This allows your tan to develop.
Avoid wearing tight clothing until you shower. This includes tight fitting jeans, blouses, bras, spandex, and socks.
All swimming & vigorous exercise must be avoided until after your first shower (sweating can inhibit the development of your tan).
Moisturize twice a day with a sulfate-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free lotion to keep your Organic Tan looking fresh & hydrated!
