After tanning, wear loose fitting clothing for at least 6 – 8 hours. No tight fitting pants, which will create rub and seam marks.
No sweating for at least 2 – 4 hours, though 6 – 8 hours is much better. Now is not the time to go jogging or start aggressive house cleaning.
Wait a minimum of 6 – 8 hours before showering. Many people prefer to wait until the next day, going to bed with the un-rinsed tan still on the skin. This is fine, and will receive maximum development time. Product will continue to darken over 24 hours, even if you have showered at the 6 – 8 hour mark.
When showering use a moisturizing body wash product, to help keep skin moist.
You may notice some tint or color wash-off in the shower. This is fine and normal. This is the excess solution left on the skin surface, and the tinted color guide. The sunless tan is still absorbed into skin, and will still show color.
Most people find regular moisturizing will prolong the wear of their sunless tan. But some clients find that they need very little moisturizing for best results. Moisturizing is generally recommended.
If using a DHA tan extender moisturizing product, this can also be used for after shower moisturizing.
Continue to moisturize a few days a week, or once or twice every day with our PureGlo Moisturizer. This schedule should be adjusted, based on your lifestyle, activities, and your skin’s response. If using PureGlo Tinted Moisturizer, start on the 3rd day and use every other day.
The sunless tan will fade over the next week. In about 2 – 3 days, the hands, feet and face will become noticeably faded. If using a DHA-containing tan maintainer, this will help minimize fading. When you are ready for the tan to come off use our PureGlo Body Polish Exfoliator to remove tan and prep skin for another application.
