  • Shower and exfoliate 24 hours before tanning with an oil free product. We recommend Super Fine Body Polish.

  • Hair removal (waxing/shaving) should be done at least 24 hours prior to tanning.

  • Avoid moisturizing for 24 hours prior to tanning as even after showering residue can remain on the skin.

  • On the day of your tan don’t wear any make-up, deodorant or perfume, body oils or lotions.



Immediately after your spray tan:

  • Remember the instant tan color you see is only a guiding bronzer. Your tan will develop within 6–8 hours.

  • Keep hands and skin completely dry for 6–8 hours.

  • Do not apply cosmetics or skincare products over the developing tan.

  • Avoid activities that make you perspire 6–8 after the tan is applied.

After your tan has developed:

To allow maximum DHA development, wait 6–12 hours before showering.

Pale / Hard to tan skin: 8–12 hours

Medium / Dark skin: 6–8 hours

  • Shower with warm water. Once the water runs clear, use a shower gel containing no essential oils and pat the skin dry.

  • Avoid using skincare products that contain alpha hydroxyl acids 9AHAs) as they will strip your tan.

  • Do not wax / shave for 24 hours as this removes layers of skin and will remove the tan too!

  • Moisturize twice daily, with product that doesn’t contain essential oils like Vita Liberata Moisture Boost Body Treatment.



Results will vary depending on the individual. Pale skin will not be the same color after tanning as dark / sallow skin.

Chlorine, perfume, deodorant, products containing essential oils, dehydration and skin health can all affect your tan result.

Certain products can affect the quality of the tan including perfume, deodorant, moisturizer and oil-based cosmetics.

The healthier your skin, the better your tanning results will be. There are a number of reasons your skin might not be in the optimal condition for tanning and why your tan may not be as effective as expected:

  • Sickness

  • Medication – herbal or prescribed

  • Hormonal balance

  • Stress / Exhaustion

  • Dehydration
