Deep penetration of the solution is key to beautiful lasting color.
Do not apply lotions, cream, or perfumes prior to session. use deodorant sparingly.

Remove any makeup prior to the sunless application.

Arrive Prepared.
Wear loose fitting dark colored clothing and remove jewelry.
Tight clothing can rub or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist.

Immediately Prior to the Session:

If you have purchased a single session or a bundle of airbrush tans at full price, you will receive the Norvell® XLATAN pH balancing spray or pH Balancing body cleanser.
This balancing spray is 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 skin pH combats the dreaded "Orange" effect.

After Session Care:

Once dry, apply Trigger Effect to add moisture, seal sunless results and boost the DHA reaction.

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.
If you must shower during the 4 to 24 hours following the application, WARM WATER RINSE ONLY.
The use of soap can inhibit the 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.

When showering after the 24 hours, use only a mild pH balancing shower gel. Refrain from using scrubs or high pH soaps as these will strip away your sunless color.

Extend and build color between sessions with a daily application of Pro-Long Color Extending Moisturizer.

Remember: The First shower is to simply rinse off. The longer & hotter the shower the faster the tan will fade.
