SUNLESS

Before & After Care

TO ACHIEVE A SUNLESS TAN THAT’S A PERFECT 10,
FOLLOW THESE 4 SIMPLE STEPS:

1

24-48 HOURS BEFORE YOUR SESSION
EXFOLIATE

Pre-session exfoliation is the first step to achieving flawless sunless tanning results. A sulfate-free skin polish is best. Avoid bar soap and oil-based scrubs as these may create a barrier between your skin and the sunless solution. Talk to a Tanning Consultant for details on our full line of Sunless prep & maintenance products.


TIPS TO PREP FOR THE PERFECT TAN

Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower gels and 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

Loose fitting, dark clothing is best to wear to your appointment. Tight clothing can run or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist. It is best to remove all jewelry before your visit as well, to avoid tan lines or risk leaving it behind following your session.
 

TIPS TO PREP FOR THE PERFECT TAN

Skip make-up, deodorant, perfume, oils, and moisturizers on the day of your sunless visit. Residue from hair conditioners, lotions, etc. may create a barrier between your skin and the sunless solution. If you must apply makeup or deodorant, apply sparingly and remove prior to your sunless tan.

3

DURING YOUR SESSION
OPTIMIZE

Apply pre-tan intensifier gel immediately before your sunless treatment to optimize your skin surface pH levels, boost amino acid levels and maximize sunless color results. This will keep orange undertones at bay and hydrate the skin for even and maximum absorption of sunless solution. 


TIPS TO OPTIMIZING THE PERFECT TAN

Apply barrier cream (provided in sunless room) to palms, bottoms of feet, between fingers and toes, and to any extra-dry areas like heals, elbows and knees. This will create a barrier, preventing those areas from developing a tan. 

4

AFTER SESSION CARE
MOISTURIZE

The key to a beautiful, long lasting tan is super-moist skin. We carry a great selection of tan extending moisturizers and sunless maintenance products that will extend your tan and help build color between sessions. Let one of our Smart Tan Certified Consultants recommend a product specifically for your skin. Over-the-counter products are not formulated for sunless tanning and may create uneven post-tan fading. 

TIPS FOR THE PERFECT TAN

For optimal results, wait at least 8 hours before showering. 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 8 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.
