Properly exfoliate and shave/wax your skin the night or morning before your appointment. Use an exfoliating scrub or wash cloth to remove the dead skin cells. Avoid lotions, perfumes, body oils, and other additives. Any product on your skin will affect how the tan adheres to your skin and may cause a blotchy appearance. Your esthetician will help you determine which shade best fits you. The tan may last up to 10 days. Do not sweat or workout for at least a day or two after this service is done. Perspiration will accelerate the tans fading process. Avoid hot showers, baths, or hot tubs. Any type of soaking or swimming will also speed up the fading process. Lastly, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!
