On the day of your tan

(if you’re having a spray tan treatment your therapist will do this for you)
Choose a well-lit room to apply your tan in so that you can see where you have or haven’t applied.
Have some loose dark clothing on hand to put on afterwards whilst your tan develops.
After your tan

|Shower after 8 hours to reveal your gorgeous developed colour*||Go to the gym or get wet during the development period - no washing up!|
|Stay in the shower until water runs clear. If there is any guide colour left on the skin it will rub off on to your clothes||Rub your skin after washing the guide colour off, pat dry instead to help your tan last longer|
|Moisturise daily to enhance and prolong your tan||Wear tight clothes - as these will rub your tan off and lead to a patchy developed tan|
|Start to exfoliate after 4 days to encourage an even wear off||Wear white! Although the tan will come off in the washing machine it could leave a mark on sensitive materials|
|Remember to use SPF - a fake tan won't protect your skin from harmful rays||Use skincare / body products in development time - perfume and chemicals can react with the tan causing it to turn green|
If you’re using the gradual glowing self-tan you will not need to wash off as there is no guide colour.
