Before and after Sunless Tan treatment
- Prior to tanning, take a shower and use a puff pad, exfoliating glove
or a wash cloth to rub away any dead skin cells.
- Most patients shave the area to be tanned.
- Do not apply body lotion, deodorant or foundation make-up prior
to your tanning session. These will keep the tanning spray from working
with your skin.
- Wear loose fitting clothes and sandals. They will be more comfortable
to wear after your session, and help maximize tanning results.
- Bring your smallest swim suit or undergarments in which you would
like to be tanned. Cotton is recommended. G-strings are acceptable.
- Wait at least 8 hours before showering or exercising after your tanning
session. The tan will process and darken during this time.
- Hydrated skin maintains the tan longer. After showering, apply moisturizer.
Drink water. Do not use lotions with Alpha-Hydroxy.
- Bring a towel for your car seats. The bronzer can rub off sweaty bare
legs onto your car seat.
- ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN. Spray tans do not protect the skin from
sunburns and UV damage.
