Tanning Maintenance

Sunless Maintenance

 24-48 hours prior to session

  • Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate. We cannot overstress the importance of pre-session exfoliation. 24-hours prior to your appointment, clear away any dry, dead skin cells with a pH balancing scrub.
  • Protect your skin’s pH Levels. Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, or in shower moisturizers. These products can neutralize the DHA bronzing reaction within the skin.
  • Hair Removal. Any depilatory creams, waxing or shaving should be completed 24 hours prior to your tanning session.

Day of session

  • Don’t create Sunless Barriers. Avoid applying anything to the skin that may act as a barrier between the sunless solution and the skin. Deep saturation of the solution is key to beautiful lasting color. Do not apply lotions, creams, or perfumes prior to session. Use deodorant sparingly.
  • Remove any make-up prior to the sunless application.
  • Arrive prepared. Wear loose fitting dark colored clothing and remove jewelry. Tight clothing can rub or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist.

After session care

  • You should refrain from showering as long as possible (up to 24 hours). As with all DHA products, sunless color begins showing development approximately 4 hours after application and continues to darken for up to 24 hours. If you must shower during the 4 to 24 hours following the application, WARM WATER RINSE ONLY. The use of soap can inhibit the full development of DHA color. Important: Cosmetic instant bronzers will wash away during the first shower. Pools and spas that utilize chlorine can cause fading.
