AIRBRUSH TANNING PRE & POST INSTRUCTIONS
Here are some tips to help you prepare and maintain your sunless spray tan!
24-48 HOURS PRIOR TO SESSION
Exfoliate your skin!
For a normal exfoliation, try using our Norvell Body Scrub at least 1 hour prior to your spray tan. This product does not contain oils or barriers that would prevent the solution from absorbing.
Note: Avoid using bar soaps! They are high in pH and can cause any DHA that has not yet reacted to trigger resulting in the dreaded orange effect.
DAY OF YOUR SESSION
Do not apply lotions, moisturizers, perfumes, makeup, or deodorant prior to your tanning session. Wear dark, loose fitting clothes and remove jewelry. Tight clothing can rub off or smear bronzers, especially the areas such as your knees, elbows, and waist.
IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION
Our Ambersun xLaTan pH Balancing Spray is best applied immediately prior to your spray tan. Balancing the skin’s natural pH to optimal sunless levels to produce non-orange, natural and darker sunless results.
Adding the same amino acids the body builds naturally to accelerate the DHA reaction.
Hydrating and Moisturizing the skin immediately prior to the sunless application creates an absorbing effect, rather than coating only the outermost top layer of your skin in turn, extending sunless results.
FOLLOWING YOUR SPRAY TAN
Avoid sweating and any activities that may cause you to sweat excessively. Avoid water entirely for the at least 4 hours. Avoid chemically treated pools and spas for at least 24 hours to prevent your color from fading.
For maximum results wait at least 12 hours before showering. Avoids cloths, loofahs, and bath scrunches. Using bar soap or any cleanser within the first 16 hours will halt the continued development of DHA color.
After 12 hours we recommend using our AmberSun Body Wash. It is designed to hydrate, moisturize, and nourish your skin while protecting your tan!
The day after your session and after your first shower, use Ambersun Pro-Long Color Extending Moisturizer. This lotion is specifically designed to keep your tan healthy and keep your skin moisturized. It adds a refreshing and renewing glow each day to your sunless color. Pro-Long is designed to assist your color in fading gradually and evenly.
*Need touch-ups? Use 4-Faces™ or another Norvell self-tanning product between full sessions which we always have in stock.
