Prepping your skin can make the difference for the perfect result. With these tips and tricks,you will get a perfect glow every time!

  • Exfoliate and moisturize 48 hours before you apply your self tan, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.

  • Wax or shave at least 48 hours prior to treatment. This allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.

  • For the entire 24 hours before you apply your spray tan avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, oil based products or in-shower moisturizers. These products may act as a barrier against your skin and can prevent the fast acting tanning agents to develop.

  • Make sure your skin is clean and dry. Don’t apply moisturizing lotion except in light amounts on your knees and elbows if you have super dry skin

  • Don’t apply moisturizer, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of application.

After Your Tan
  • Wear dark loose clothing; tight clothing or underwear may cause marks. Wear flip flops or loose fitting shoes.

  • Shower lightly in cold – lukewarm water after your desired development time. Use plain water, don’t use shower gels, scrubs, shampoos or loofah during the first 24 hours after your treatment.

  • Pat your skin dry. Do not rub or scrub your skin.

  • Moisturize everyday after your organic spray tan. Use our Golden Glo Glo Tan extender so the tan is continually being topped up and your tan lasts longer.

  • After day 7, exfoliate with a soft body polish  or Golden Glo mitt on a daily basis, to help your skin absorb even more moisturizer and keep it looking and feeling gorgeous. This also helps the tan fade naturally, rather than in patches
