PREPARING YOUR SKIN
FOR ‘PICTURE PERFECT’ RESULTS
Prepping your skin can make the difference for the perfect result. With these tips and tricks, applying MineTan Self Tan products and keeping your picture perfect tan will be easy:
BEFORE APPLYING YOUR TAN:
» Exfoliate and moisturise 24 hours before you apply your self tan, paying particular attention to elbows, knees, ankles and problem dry areas.
» Wax/shave at least 48 hours prior to treatment. This allows the pores time to close. Dotting in pores may appear if not adhered to.
» The entire 24 hours before you apply your self tan avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, oil based broducts or in-shower moisturisers. These products may act as a barrier against your skin, where it will stop the fast tanning actives to develop onto the skin.
» Before applying your self tan, make sure skin is clean and dry. Keep in mind that too much moisture causes tanning product to slide right off the skin. Don't apply moisturising lotion except in light amounts on your knees and elbows — the areas where tanner generally absorbs too much. This helps stop these areas from getting too dark.
» Don't apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant or makeup on the day of application.
