ALWAYS use a natural exfoliating lotion or tan eraser to remove your existing tan. There are many chemicalised products which cause a coating / barrier to sit on your skin resulting in an un-even streaky tan! This is why we have our exfoliation prep rooms to ensure your skin is prepped properly. Close your pores after exfoliating or shaving by turning off the heat for the last 30 seconds of your shower. This really helps!!
ALWAYS pat dry with a towel after you shower. Rough or heavy rubbing will take your tan off quicker after a hot shower as your pores are open and skin is softened.
Try to tan TWO days prior to your event as your colour will be fully developed and looking its best by then.
BEFORE YOUR TAN
ALWAYS apply barrier cream to your palms, back of hands, elbows, knees, back of ankles and feet. This will protect any dry areas and leave you with a very natural looking tan.
NEVER wash with soap when rinsing off your tan. Your tan is still developing even once you rinse it off and it will continue to develop over the next 12 hours. No moisturiser is best during this time also.
Moisturising morning and night will keep your skin hydrated and your colour on longer. Tan Lounge White Gold Tan Extender is perfect for this – just apply it once daily to extend the life of your tan or use twice daily to give you an all-over natural glow to non-tanned skin.
