RoCo Tanning Preparation and Aftercare


Preparation

For an ultra even, streak free fake tan, always ensure you are working with a clean canvas.

  • Exfoliate and moisturise the night before your tan (not on the day), paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and dry areas - to not exfoliate the skin would result in very patchy tan... not a desired look.
  • Paint your nails to avoid the tan from staining.
  • Wax at least 48 prior to tanning / shave at least 24 hours before. This will allow time for the pores to close as dotting of the pore may occur otherwise.
  • Do not moisturise or use any lotions on the day of your tan.
  • Remove all makeup and deodorant prior to tanning.

 

 

After Care

  • Wear loose clothing and shoes to avoid marking the tan
  • Do not shower/bathe for at least 8 hours after your tan has been applied to allow for full development.
  • Do not swim/exercise during the development period
  • Try not to touch your skin during the development period
  • Pat dry after showering to prolong your tan
  • Gently exfoliate 3-5 days after your tan has been applied to allow for a gradual fade.
