24-48 hours before your session
Exfoliate! This step is crucial! Complete any waxing, shaving or use of depilatory creams no later than 24 hours prior to your session. Have all facials, massages, manicure or pedicures done before your appointment.
Day of your Session
Wear loose fitting, dark clothing (no leggings or yoga pants) Tight clothing can rub or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist. Avoid closed toed shoes and socks. No jewelry.
Don't create a sunless barrier by applying anything to the skin. Avoid applying lotions, creams or perfumes prior to your session, even deodorant. Don't wear any makeup to your sunless tan appointment.
After Session Care
Refrain from showering as long as possible. Ideally for 24 hours (unless a rapid tan is applied) As with all DHA products, sunless color begins showing development approximately 4 hours post application and continues to darken for up to 24 hours. If you must shower before the 24 hours has lapsed, do so using a warm water rinse only. The use of soap can inhibit the full development of DHA. Cosmetic surface bronzers will wash away during the first shower.
