Do not apply any perfume, deodorant, oils or moisturizers to the skin prior to self tan application.

Hair removable should be performed at least 24 hours prior to self tanning.

It is imperitive to exfoliate your entire body and face prior to self tanning to avoid tan build up on dry skin.  Pay particular attention to dry areas of the body such as elbows, knees and ankles.

Wear dark coloured, loose fitting clothing after tan application.  Be aware the colour guide may stain light hair, man made fibres and wool.

Do not shower for a minimum of 2 hours after tan application

Do not participate in any activity which may cause perspiration for at least 12 hours after the tan application

It is fine to leave the self tan on overnight and shower the next day.  Some tan colour may transfer to the bed linen which, depending on the fabric, may or may not wash out.

Apply moisturizer liberally after your self tan application to ensure tan longevity and even fading

Exfoliate the skin every 4 days to ensure even fading

Pat dry the skin after showering or bathing, avoid rubbing the skin

Avoid swimming pools as chlorine can bleach the tan.  If swimming is on the agenda, reapply self tan/gradual tan to sustain tan longevity

Always apply a sunscreen even with self tan applied to the skin, as self tan doesn’t contain sun protection
