tanning post-care



  • Exfoliate and moisturize 24 hours before you apply your tan, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.
  • Wax or shave at least 48 hours prior to treatment. This allows the pores time to close. This will help avoid dark dots in your pores!
  • Before applying your tan, make sure your skin is clean and dry. Keep in mind that too much moisture causes tanning products to slide right off the skin. Don’t apply moisturizing lotion except in light amounts on your knees and elbows — the areas where tanner generally absorbs too much. This helps stop these areas from getting too dark.


  • 24 hours before you apply your tan, avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, oil based products or in-shower moisturizers, this also includes hair conditioner. These products may act as a barrier against your skin and can prevent the fast acting tanning agents to develop .
  • Don’t apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of application. This may cause discoloration or a patchy tan result that won’t last as long.
