Tan Care


Good preparation starts in the days leading up to the application!

- For best results book your tan 48 hours before your event

- Shave or wax 24-48 hours prior to tanning (ideally 48).  This gives the body adequate time to close the skin follicle off 

- Exfoliate with a mitt 24 hours prior to tanning to remove dead skin cells and other product residue. Focus on elbows, knees and ankles

- Arrive for your application showered with no deodorant, perfumes or moisturiser on the body

- Wear loose clothing with thongs or slides  



Just as vital as the prep! These tips will ensure the tan development is seamless and the lifespan is long — the tan will last up around 7 days.


- The time until rinse off depends on the type of tan applied and can vary between 30 minutes to 8 hours (or overnight)

- A short rinse in warm water until the water runs clear is all that is required — do not use soap or wash hair

- After rinsing you may feel like the tan has disappeared, however the tan will continue to develop up to 48 hours post application

- Pat skin dry with a towel, and do not apply deodorant, perfumes or moisturiser straight after your tan



As the tanned layer of your skin flakes away, your tan will gradually fade. Hydration is key!

- Use a PH balanced or soap free cleanser in the shower rather than a normal soap

- Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! The drier the skin the quicker the tan will fade, and moisturizing regularly will also ensure an even tan to fade transition
