24-48 HOURS PRIOR TO SESSION
*Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate.
We cannot overstress the importance of pre-session exfoliation.
*Protect your skins pH levels.
Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, or in shower moisturizers. These products can neutralize the DHA bronzing reaction with the skin.
Any depilatory creams, waxing or shaving should be completed 24 hours prior to your session.
DAY OF SESSION
*Don’t Create Sunless Barriers
Avoid applying anything to the skin that may act as a barrier between the sunless solution and the skin. Do not apply lotions, creams, or perfumes prior to session. Use deodorant sparingly.
*Remove any makeup prior to the sunless application.
Wear loose fitting, dark clothing and remove jewelry. Tight clothing can rub or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist.
Your spray tan technician will apply Norvell Pre Sunless Balancing xLaTan spray to stabilize the skins pH level as well as to provide a quick surge of moisture within the skin. Having the proper skin pH boosts DHA development, speeding result times and resulting in a deeper, darker tan. Having a stable pH combats the dreaded “orange effect”.
AFTER SESSION CARE
*You should refrain from showering as long as possible (up to 24-hours). As with all DHA products, sunless color begins showing development approx. 4-hours after application and continues to darken for up to 24-hours.
RINSE ONLY. The use of soap can inhibit full development of DHA color.
IMPORTANT: Cosmetic instant bronzers will wash away during the first shower. Pools and spas that utilize chlorine can cause fading.
