When you contact Flawless to get your Sienna X spray tan, or have purchased from our range of Sienna X award-winning self tan products to use at home , to guarantee the best results you need to prepare your skin properly. Preparing for a fake tan should ideally begin 2 days beforehand.
Follow these steps to get the most out of your Sienna x tan...
Two Days Before
Exfoliating is essential when preparing for a tan. DHA - the active ingredient in your false tan - only affects the outer layer of your skin, and so it’s essential that this is as smooth as possible. Scrubbing away dead skin cells will make your tan apply nicer and last better. Our Sienna X Polishing Body Scrub is perfect for this stage.
It’s also important to remember to shave or wax 1-2 days before your tan so that your pores have time to close. If you apply fake tan too soon after shaving, then it can result in the ‘dotted’ effect.
One Day Before
To ensure your skin is as prepared for a sunless tan as possible, you will want to keep your skin moisturised. However, moisturiser can act as a barrier to fake tan, and could also react with the solution.
To prevent this happening, apply your moisturizer 24 hours before so that your skin is bare when you actually come to tan. Focus on dry areas that tan may cling to, such as knees, elbows and feet.
On the Day
Other things that can affect how your tan applies include deodorant or any other sprays or lotions. On the day of your tan, an important tanning preparation tip is to ensure there’s nothing on your skin that could interfere with the tan.
Once your skin is prepped and primed, you’ll have the perfect base for your fake tan!
