Prior to Treatment
To get the best from your tan exfoliate and moisturise your skin regularly prior to having the treatment. This will give a smoother surface for the therapist to apply the tan. Pay particular attention to the lower half of your legs, knees, ankles, top of feet, toes, elbows and knuckles, however, do not apply a moisturiser after your last shower or bath before your tan. If you are shaving or waxing, please ensure you do this at least 8 hours before salon application. A much better result will be achieved and the tan will last longer. We always recommend that you have a trial run 4-6 weeks before any important occasion, in the rare case of allergies or unexpected results.
For best results leave the tan on the skin overnight - if possible try to leave 8 hours before having your post tan shower. To maximise how long your tan will last gently exfoliate, as it will help to prolong the life of the tan. A salon applied lotion tan will last up to 10 days on the skin. However, this does depend on your skin type, home skin care routine and lifestyle. Following the guidelines above will ensure a longer lasting tan.
