Sunless Tan Preparation

  • Take a long, hot shower the night before or morning of your sunless tan appointment. Exfoliate well and shave.
  • The day of your appointment – NO lotion, perfume, body spray, makeup or deodorant. These products can affect the result of your tan.
  • Arrive to your appointment with hair pulled up and in loose fitting, dark clothing.
  • Manicures and pedicures should be done before your appointment; and waxings done 1 day before.

Immediately After Sunless Tan

  • NO lotion, perfume, body spray, makeup or deodorant the remainder of the day.
  • Do not shower, get wet or sweat for at least 10 to 12 hours. The Norvell solution is water soluble and will rinse from most clothing.
  • Only wash the hands (palms) with hand sanitizer.

First Shower Post-Sunless Tan

  • Shower 10-12 hours from your appointment time.
  • Express drying solutions are available which allow you to shower in 3 hours
  • Rinse with warm water only and no soap.
  • You will see a tea color rinsing off of your skin. Don’t worry; your tan is still intact! This is just the cosmetic bronzer rinsing off and is meant to happen.
  • Pat your skin dry after showering.
  • Apply moisturizer morning and evening beginning after your first post-tan shower (avoid moisturizers with mineral oils and fragrances.
  • Norvell’s Amber Sun Color Extender or Daily Moisturizer are ideal products to use and the only product we recommend.
  • Moisturizing often will prolong the color and life of your tan along with helping it fade naturally.

Continued Maintenance

  • Apply moisturizer morning and evening.
  • Avoid long hot showers and baths, and exfoliating with loofahs or wash cloths.
  • Pat your skin dry after showering.
  • Take care when exercising as friction and excess sweat may cause your tan to fade prematurely or unevenly.
