Sunless Tanning


Sunless Tanning Pre & Post Instructions


Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate.

We cannot stress the importance of pre-session exfoliation. 24 hours prior to your spray-tan, clear away any dry, dead skin cells with a pH balancing scrub such as Norvell® Amber Sun Body Scrub. For extreme areas use a deep exfoliator such as Sea Coral Salt Scrub, no less than 24 hours prior to your session.

Protect Your Skins’ pH Levels

Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, or in shower moisturizers. Avoid oil based products like Dove and Caress as these can clog your pores and prevent the solution from being absorbed into the skin.

Hair Removal

Any depilatory creams, waxing or shaving should be completed 24 hours prior to your session.


Don’t Create Sunless Barriers.

Avoid applying anything to the skin that may act as a barrier between the sunless solution and the skin. Deep penetration of the solution is key to beautiful lasting color. Do not apply lotions, creams, or perfumes prior to session. Use deodorant sparingly.

Remove any make-up prior to the sunless application - Arrive Prepared.

Wear loose fitting dark colored clothing and remove jewelry. Tight clothing can rub or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist.


Do not perform any strenuous activities.
You should refrain from showering as long as possible. (up to 24 hours)

As with all DHA products, sunless color begins showing in approx. 4 hours after application and continues to develop for up to 24 hours. If you must shower during the 4 to 24 hours following the application, WARM WATER RINSE ONLY. The use of soap can inhibit the full development of DHA color

Important: Cosmetic instant bronzers will wash away during the first shower. Pools and spas that utilize chlorine as well as salt water can cause fading. When showering after 24 hours, use only mild pH balancing shower gel such as Amber Sun™ Body Wash. Refrain from using scrubs or high pH soaps as these will strip away your sunless color. Pat or air dry.

Extend and build color

Between sessions us a daily application of Pro-Long™ or another color extending moisturizer to keep your tan beautiful and long lasting. The spray tan typically lasts 5 to 7 days.
