  • To achieve the best final result, wait at least 12 hours after application before showering or doing any strenuous activity (this excludes our ‘Rapid Tan’ formula, which requires only 6 hours on the skin).
  • It is safe to apply makeup and deodorant while your tan is developing.
  • Avoid applying perfume and lotion while your tan is developing.
  • Avoid hot showers, baths, and chlorine; they will break down your tan more quickly.
  • When showering, wash gently (DO NOT use a loofah or washcloth).
  • Gently towel dry by blotting the skin.
  • After the initial 12 hour developing period, apply a moisturizing lotion 1-2 times daily to hydrate your skin and nourish the tan. We recommend Tan-talizing’s Beauty Extender lotion, available with or without bronzer. This PH balanced formula with extend the life of your tan.
  • The face, hands, and chest are usually the first areas to fade. Tan-talizing’s aerosol touch-up spray ‘tan in a can’, ‘Instant Beauty’, is a great way to easily refresh your color!!
  • Your tan will last anywhere between 5 – 10 days, depending on a variety of factors and how you care for your skin. If your tan begins to wear off or appear blotchy in places, it is due to your skin drying and uneven exfoliation. We recommend our ‘Beauty Scrub’ in conjunction with our exfoliating gloves to remove dry skin and prepare yourself for a new tan application with Tan-talizing!
