Preparation Instructions

The night before your tan, exfoliate and moisturise, paying particular attention to dry areas such as elbows, knees and ankles.

Wax / shave at least 24 hours before your tan to allow pores time to close, otherwise a dotting effect may occur.

Paint nails and toenails - especially if they are acrylics or similar.

DO NOT moisturise, use skin lotions or oil on the day of your tan.

Remove make-up, deodorant and perfumes BEFORE your tan as they act as a barrier.

Refrain from eyelash / eyebrow tinting. Allow 24/48 hours to pass as it may react with the DHA.

We advise you to remove contact lenses before the tan as they may become stained and contaminated.
