How do I get the most from my sunless tan?
Preparing for a Sunless Application
Because bronzers only affect the top most layer of the skin, it is best if skin is freshly exfoliated and moisturized prior to applying a product with a bronzer. If skin is dry or flaky, the tanner may experience "spotty" looking results after a day or two.
Exfoliate skin at least 12 hours prior to sunless tanning application to smooth skin for even tanning results. Spend a little extra time on knees, elbows, feet, and hands.
Shave at least 6 hours before your sunless tanning session.
Do not moisturize skin at least 2 hours prior to your sunless tanning session. Lotions can create a barrier, preventing the absorption of sunless tanning solution or product.
Remove makeup prior to sunless tanning application for best results. Wear dark, loose fitting clothes. Sunless solution washes out of most clothing, but a product with immediate bronzer could wipe off on lighter clothing, giving a temporary appearance of discoloration.
Do not wear wool, nylon, or silk during or after your sunless application and for at least 8 hours as DHA MAY react with these fabrics and cause staining.
Applying Sunless Products
With the use of most sunless spray equipment, you will need to apply barrier cream to palms of hands, bottom and sides of feet, on nails and cuticles of fingers and toes, and any other areas you do not wish to have a sunless tan develop.
If you are applying sunless products at home, it is best to apply the product evenly and in a circular motion with the hand. This will prevent streaking which is caused by uneven application of the product.
With home application, wait at least 4 hours, then reapply if you want to see darker results.
Immediately After Sunless Application
Wait at least 6 hours after application before you shower. This will allow time for the self-tanning reaction to occur on the skin.
Don't worry if you see color washing off from your first shower. This is normal. What you see washing off is the immediate cosmetic bronzer and what is left behind is a beautiful sunless tan.
Do not apply moisturizer until after your first shower. This could effect the immediate reaction of the sunless solution on the skin and cause streaking.
Do not exercise or swim for at least 6 hours following your sunless application. Water or excessive perspiration could decrease the reaction of the sunless product on the skin and cause streaking.
Moisturize daily, especially after bathing, to maintain your sunless tan for as long as possible.
Do not exfoliate skin for at least 48 hours after your sunless tanning application. When you do exfoliate, do so gently and evenly to preserve an even sunless tan.
Remember to wear a sunscreen. Sunless products do not contain sunscreen. And, although you look like you have a tan, you will still need a sunscreen to prevent your skin from burning.
