TANNING AFTERCARE TIPS

  • The key to extending colour is to preserve the recently bronzed, top layer of skin as long possible. Your routine and habits determine the length of the time it will last.

  • DO NOT take long hot showers or baths. It will fade your colour extremely fast. Instead, keep your showers luke warm and keep them to only a few minutes. Stay away from heavy body scrubs, harsh soaps and cleansers. Use a ph balanced mild soap or body wash. Always pat dry.

  • Keep your facial routine as simple as possible. The more you scrub, the more toners, cleansers, etc you use, the faster it will fade.

  • Avoid using heavy oils on the skin like coconut oil or baby oil until the colour is ready to come off completely. Ensure that the lotion you use is as natural and organic as possible, which means it will include no mineral oil or oils at all.

  • The more you shave, the faster the colour fades so keep shaving to a minimum. We know it’s hard, but keep your hands off your hot self. No leg crossing or other skin to skin contact

  • Avoid tight clothing the first few days when possible (especially skinny jeans and tight, strappy shoes). Denim is a stiff material that can cause the legs to fade faster than they normally should. Another example, tight sports bras worn daily can cause some fading along strap lines. Always wear socks with sneakers or boots.

  • Avoid Pools & Spas as they will also shorten the life of your tan.
