24-48 HOURS BEFORE YOUR SESSION
EXFOLIATE. EXFOLIATE. EXFOLIATE.
Pre-session exfoliation is the first step to achieving flawless spray tanning results. It is best to clear away dry, dead skin cells with a sulfate-free scrub from Norvell. This will polish and prep the pH balance of the skin to keep orange undertones at bay.
TIPS TO PREP FOR THE PERFECT TAN
Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products or in-shower moisturizers. Be sure to complete any waxing, shaving or use of depilatory creams no later than 24 hours prior to your session.
DAY OF YOUR SESSION
PREPARE TO BRONZE
As you prepare for your custom spray tan, be sure to wear loose fitting, dark clothing and no jewelry. Tight clothing can run or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist. Before you head to your appointment, there are some important “don’ts” you won’t want to ignore. Deep penetration of the solution is key to a beautiful lasting color.
TIPS TO PREP FOR THE PERFECT TAN
The add-on, pH Balance generously over entire area to be tanned. Gently rub into skin with hands. Don’t create a sunless barrier by applying anything to the skin. Avoid applying lotions, creams or perfumes prior to your session. Even use deodorant sparingly. Don’t wear any makeup to your sunless tan appointment, if unavoidable, remove prior to your spray tan.
AFTER SESSION CARE
Refrain from showering as long as possible, ideally for 24 hours. As with all DHA products, sunless color begins showing development approximately 4 hours post application and continues to darken for up to 24 hours. If you must shower before the 24 hours has lapsed, do so using a warm water rinse only. The use of soap can inhibit full development of DHA. Never fear, cosmetic surface bronzers will wash away during the first shower. Note :: Chlorine can cause premature fading of sunless results.
TIPS TO OPTIMIZING THE PERFECT TAN
When showering after 24 hours, use pH Balancing Shower Cleanser (available in stores).
AFTER CARE FOR *EXPRESS TAN
Shower after 1 hour for a sun-kissed tan, 2 hours for medium tan or 3 hours for a dark tan. Do not exceed 6 hours. IT WILL NOT MAKE YOU DARKER BUT MAKE YOU BRASSY! When showering off Express Tan for the first time, do not use shampoo or soap. This may cause streaking. The purpose of the shower is to wash the bronzer off gently. When you shower off your Express Tan you will not look tan at first. Do not be alarmed! The color will develop over the next 24 hours.
MAKE IT LAST
It really can’t be said enough…..Moisturize, Moisturize, and Moisturize some more! But avoid any product that contains mineral oil. Be sure to read the label because most lotions contain that yucky paraben! To moisturize, maintain and extend your spray tan, we recommend using our Sunless Color Extender ProLong Moisturizer.
