Spray Tanning Care
24-HOURS PRIOR TO SESSION
*Exfoliate. Exfoliate. We cannot over-stress the importance of pre-session exfoliation. 24-hours prior to your appointment, clear away any dry, dead skin cells with a pH balancing exfoliation scrub.
*Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, or in-shower moisturizers. These products can neutralize the DHA bronzing reaction within the skin.
*Any waxing or shaving should be completed 24-hours prior to the session to reduce skin irritation.
DAY OF SESSION
*Don’t Create Sunless Barriers. You do not want to apply anything to the skin that may act as a barrier between the sunless solution and the skin. Deep penetration is key to a beautiful lasting color. Do not apply lotions, creams or perfumes prior to sessions. Use deodorant sparingly.
*Remove any make-up prior to sunless application.
*Wear loose-fitting dark clothing and remove jewelry. Tight clothing can rub or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, and waist.
IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO SESSION
*Your technician will apply a pH balancing spray to stabilize the skins’ pH and provide a quick moisture surge to the skin. Having the proper skin pH boosts DHA development, speeding result times and creating a deeper, darker tan. Having a stable pH combats the dreaded “orange effect”.
*A Barrier Cream will be applied to your hands, concentrating on the areas between the fingers, around the fingernails and the palms. Also apply to feet making sure to get the areas between the toes, around the sole of the foot and the ankles. Blend barrier cream into the surrounding areas to create a smooth transition from the soon to be tanned areas and the areas you want to avoid over-application. Lightly apply Barrier Cream to any other dry patches of the skin. These areas often include the ankles, knees, and elbows.
*The Session usually takes 15 minutes or less. Norvell® Solution should dry enough to re-dress in 8-12 minutes. Your spray technician can reduce this time by removing the spray gun from the quick disconnect air hose and “blow drying” the skin.
*Once dry, your technician will apply Norvell Post Sunless HydroFirm™ Moisturizing Spray to add moisture, seal sunless results and boost the DHA reaction.
AFTER SESSION CARE
*Your tan will last 5-7 days if cared for properly. You must avoid water during the entire time the solution is developing on your skin! Keep in mind that perspiration and saliva are water too. While the solution is processing on your skin. Water stops the activation process and you will develop lighter in the areas that get wet. If it is raining on the day of your appointment, please bring an umbrella or dress appropriately to avoid the rain. Cosmetic instant bronzers will wash away during the first shower. Pools and spas that utilize high levels of chlorine can cause your tan to fade.
*Plan your day to shower according to recommended development times.
*We offer 2 solution options: 8-12 Hour Premium Solution or 1-4 Hour Rapid Rinse Solution.
*The recommended development time for the Premium Solution is 8-12 hours.
After the recommended development time, you should shower using only a mild pH balancing shower gel. If you must shower before 12-hours, warm water rinse only. If you are sprayed with the Premium Solution in the evening, you will have to sleep in the solution and wait to shower until the morning. In this case, it is not necessary to disrupt your sleep and shower at exactly 12 hours. Leaving the cosmetic bronzer on longer than 12 hours will not make you darker, because the solution will stop developing after 12 hours. However, we do NOT recommend you leave the Premium Solution on longer than you have to, because your body’s natural oils and perspiration may cause your tan to become blotchy.
*The recommended development time for the Rapid Rinse Solution is 1-4 hours depending on your desired color depth.
Shower with warm water ONLY after the desired development time for Rapid Rinse solution (no soap, or hot water). After initial rinse, it is recommended to use a mild pH balancing shower gel to prolong your tan.
For a LIGHT color, giving your skin a sun-kissed glow, warm water rinse in 1-2 hours.
For a MEDIUM color, giving your skin a natural golden tan, warm water rinse in 2-3 hours.
For a DARK color, giving your skin a bronzed vacation tan, warm water rinse in 3-4 hours.
The Rapid Rinse Solution MUST be rinsed at the proper development time. Do NOT leave Quick Rinse Solution on the skin longer than 4 hours. Leaving Quick Rinse on longer than 4-hours may cause oversaturation and blotchy or orangey results. Note that although Quick Rinse contains a higher DHA percentage, it does NOT immediately tan your skin; This solution just allows you to shower sooner. After your initial rinsing of the cosmetic bronzer, your tan will NOT be immediately noticeable. In fact, when you first shower, it will appear as if you have washed away your tan. Do NOT panic—your color depth will gradually continue to darken for 12-hours after application. Do NOT judge your color depth until the tan has had time to completely finish developing.
*It is important to keep skin moisturized after sunless tanning as dry, flaky skin will slough off faster and color will fade sooner. Your goal is to basically slow down your body’s natural exfoliation process. Sunless tan extending products with a light self-tanning bronzer, such as Norvell Color Extender Pro-Long™ Moisturizer, helps hydrate skin and maintain even, natural-looking color by providing subtle bronzers.
*It is recommended that individuals NOT spray tan more than 3 times in a 2-week period, to avoid build-up of tanning solution that will contribute to uneven wear-off. This allows a complete cycle of natural exfoliation and eliminates patchiness or uneven areas of wear, such as around the waist, inside the arms where the elbow bends, underarms, and backs of knees. These are natural areas of the body where friction from clothing and daily activities may cause premature exfoliation. In addition, spraying too frequently may also cause the skin to exfoliate more rapidly (decreasing the longevity of your sunless tan), as over-application can alter the skin’s pH levels, causing it to shed more frequently.
