Apply moisturizer, morning and evening, after your post-tanning shower. Hydrated skin makes your tan last longer and your skin looking healthy. Consider using Derma Glow to maximize the benefits of your tanning session. Derma Glow is a soothing moisturizer provides light self-tanning action so that you can extend your results days longer than usual.
Preparing for your Airbrush Tan:
Shower and exfoliate to prime skin just prior to your tanning appointment. Skin should be completely dry before tanning.
Exfoliating products that leave the skin excessively oily, such as salt scrubs, should be avoided.
Make sure that all lotions, creams, deodorants, makeup or other toiletries are removed from the skin before a treatment. If these products are left on the skin, discoloration and uneven results can occur.
Waxing or shaving should be done at least a few hours prior to tanning. This includes facial waxing.
Wear dark, loose clothing and shoes to your appointment so that you can wear the same home after your tan. Tight fitting clothing can hinder tanning results. Plan not to get wet, exercise or perspire for at least 4 hours. At that time the product can be showered off and normal activities can be resumed. You will see some color washing off the first time you shower. This is just the surface color (bronzer) that was applied, your skin will continue to tan for 24 hours as the tanning solution develops.
What to Avoid AFTER your Airbrush Tan:
Hair inhibiting lotions or creams
Depilatory hair removers
Body hair bleaching
Retin-A, Renova, Tri-Luma and Skin bleaching products
Acne skin products containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA’s), beta hydroxy acids (BHA’s), malic or lactic acid
Products containing alcohol or witch hazel
Facial scrubs, masks and strips
Loofahs, loofah gloves or exfoliating products
Body moisturizers or shower gels that contain petroleum or mineral oil bases
Soaking in salt water (ocean), chlorine (hot tubs and pools) or warm baths can rapidly exfoliate your tan. Do not rub your skin with a towel after bathing – pat dry only.
