Aftercare Advice

Immediately after your tan:

  • Wear loose, dark clothing

  • Keep skin completely dry, avoid water contact

  • Do not apply any products over the developing tan

  • Allow tan to develop for 8 hours

  • Avoid other beauty/hair treatments whilst your tan is developing

  • Avoid activities that make you perspire

  • Be careful when drinking hot beverages as hot cup can strip colour from around your mouth. Toothpaste can also strip colour while your tan develops

After your tan has developed:

  • Rinse off any remaining guide colour with warm/hot water. Once the water runs clear gently wash yourself with a mild soap

  • Pat yourself dry with a towel instead of rubbing

  • Avoid products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHA's) as they can strip colour

  • Avoid swimming pools as Chlorine can prematurely fade your tan

  • Applying a body moisturiser daily can help to prolong your tan

  • If you have any questions, please let us know
