  • Wax/shave 8 hours before your tan to allow pores time to close.
  • If you have dry skin, moisturizes 5 hours prior to your appointment.
  • Remove make-up, deodorant, perfume and creams prior to having your tan.
  • Wear underwear/ bikini / swimsuit, or go for the no tan line look. Whatever you’re most comfortable with.


  • Wear loose dark clothing after your tan. Any tight clothing may cause wear marks.
  • Do not shower or bathe for 10-12 hours (the development period).
  • Do not exercise or swim during the development period, as sweating or prolonged exposure to water will fade your new tan.
  • In hot weather, avoid the outdoors during the development time. Hot humid conditions can cause streaking and imperfections to the tan. Stay where there is air-conditioning is best.  
  • In rainy weather, wear appropriate clothing outdoors as and type of moisture during the developing time can cause imperfections to the tan.    
  • Try not to touch your skin during the development time as your palms may get stained.
  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! This helps to keep your tan for longer.
