TAN PREPARATION

How do I prepare for a tan?

The day before the tan

  • Before or after the tan DO NOT USE ANY DOVE BRANDED PRODUCTS
  • Wax/shave at least 24 hours before your tan to allow pores time to close, otherwise a dotting effect may occur
  • Shower, exfoliate and moisturise your face and body the night before the tan paying attention to dry areas such as knees, elbows and ankles.

On the day of the tan

  • Before or after the tan DO NOT USE ANY DOVE BRANDED PRODUCTS
  • Shower and wash your face
  • Do not use moisturiser on the day of your tan
  • Remove make-up, deodorant, perfume and moisturiser creams or makeup prior to having your tan
  • Wear dark underwear/a bikini or swimsuit, or anything else you feel comfortable in for your treatment
  • Wear loose dark clothing after your tan. Any tight clothing may cause wear marks
  • Wear flip flops or loose fitting shoes
  • Do not shower or bathe for 6-8 hours (the development period)
  • Do not exercise or swim during the development period
  • Try not to touch your skin during the development time as your palms may get stained
  • If you need to go out in the rain wear a long sleeved waterproof jacket and umbrella
