Caring for your Sunless Tan
- Wait 6-8 hours after application before you shower. This will allow time for the self-tanning reaction to occur on the skin. If you need to shower sooner ask your airbrush technician about our 1 and 2 hour formulas.
- It’s normal for color wash off from your first shower, don’t worry. What you see washing off is the immediate cosmetic bronzer, which will leave you with a beautiful sunless tan.
- Do not apply moisturizer until after your first shower because it may cause streaking. When showering we recommend a high quality body wash such as Norvell® Hydrating Body Wash.
- Do not exercise until after your first shower.
- Moisturize 2-3 times daily to maintain your sunless tan. For best results, use a water based moisturizer. Do not use oil-based moisturizers because they may cause blotchiness.
- For extending your tan, we recommend using Norvell® Prolong Tan Extender.
- Do not apply moisturizer until AFTER your first shower because the immediate reaction of the sunless solution on the skin may cause streaking. When showering we recommend using a high quality body wash like Norvell® Hydrating Body Wash.
- Do not exfoliate skin for at least 48 hours after your sunless tanning application. When you do exfoliate, do so gently and evenly with Norvell® Moisturizing Body Scrub to preserve an even sunless tan.
- If you plan on sun-bathing remember to wear only water based sunscreen. Sunless products do not contain sunscreen. You will still need a sunscreen to prevent your skin from burning.
