24-48 Hours Prior To Session
For exfoliation of extremely dead, dry skin cells we recommend our exfoliating products (24–48) hours before a spray session. This provides a thorough, deep skin exfoliation to nourish and moisturize the skin. It also will allow the client’s skin to balance itself and correct its pH levels naturally. It is important NOT to use products such as moisturizers, shaving gels, creams, waxes, bar soap, or in-shower moisturizers less than 24 hours prior to the tanning session. The oils contained in these products may cause a barrier on the skin, or affect pH levels and cause adverse results.
NOTE: Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products or in-shower moisturizers, or any products containing petrolatum, petroleum jelly, mineral oils, or parabens. These products can neutralize the DHA bronzing reaction.
Day of Session
Do not apply lotions, moisturizers, or perfumes prior to your tanning session. Use deodorant sparingly. Avoid any heavy spray in the armpit area due to the high level of pH; DHA will react heavily in this area and will appear unnatural. It is best not to apply makeup, but if you do so, carefully remove makeup prior to your session. Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing and remove jewelry. Tight clothing can rub off or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, and waist.
