Have your nails, hair and other pampering appointments completed 24 hours PRIOR to your session. We protect your nails with a barrier to ensure your tan and nails are on point!
24 hours prior to your session be sure to shower, shave and exfoliate with a mitt or glove. Moisturize heavily this day, more so than you typically do, paying particular attention to the shins, elbows, ankles and wrists. Please do not use any Dove products before or with a spray tan.
The morning of your appointment, you should take a very quick shower and do a very light exfoliation with the glove or mitt WITH WATER ONLY to make sure you removed all residue of products used the day before. This should be done at least 3 hours prior to your appointment.
Arrive at the appointment with long loose dark clothing and slip on shoes. No makeup, jewelry or deodorant. The solution requires a minimum of 2 hours on the skin to a maximum of 8 hours (or overnight for convenience sake). Do not sweat or get wet during this time. (Wearing yoga pants, skinny jeans and tight fitting clothing after your session will reduce tanning results. Plan your post session activities accordingly to avoid sweating, rain drops or factors that could compromise tanning results.)
Always keep long, covering clothing handy in case of rainy weather and a towel to cover your car seat.
How do I care for my Bronze?
Moisturize! Use natural lotions (i.e. Shea or Coco butters, Hempz, etc.) to truly nourish your skin and maximize results.
Avoid hot showers, hot tubs and exfoliating; minimize the time in chlorine and salt water*. *Rinsing with fresh water as soon as possible after exiting chlorine or salt water is highly recommended to preserve natural oils and remove chemicals that can reduce the life of your tan.
Use lotion sunscreens, like Sun Bum or White Girl to protect and moisturize your skin.
Use a new razor to reduce loss of tan when shaving.
Wash with gentle, sulfate free soaps to prevent stripping of the color from your skin.
Use tan extender lotions to replenish color and get the most out of your sunless tan.
DRINK WATER! This may seem unrelated, but truly getting enough H2O keeps your skin, hair and so much more in great shape- which keeps your sunless results lasting and looking better!
