+ Upon first shower, rinse lightly without soap - NO scrubbing. Pat dry. Apply a perfume free lotion. 
+ It is not recommended to wear white, light or tight clothing until after your 2nd shower.  Especially if you will be sweating.
+ Moisturize entire body up to 2 times a day with a natural, sulfate and paraben free lotion till the life of your tan.  This will keep your tan supple and fresh
note: if you do not moisturize, your color may fade more unevenly
+ As color fades it’s normal to see a “speckled look” you can exfoliate at that time.  We recommend soaking in a hot bath with baking soda or salt.  Soak for about 10 mins and follow with gently exfoliating, using and exfoliating brush/sponge/cloth. Or treat yourself to a spa body scrub :)
+ Avoid using bar soaps or high PH products- they will strip your tan.  We recommend using a sulfate free soap or shoer gel.
+ Jacuzzis, pools, chlorine, baths, long hot showers, frequent workout sessions will shorten the life of your tan. Keep your showers short and sweet, 3- 5 minutes, with a warm temperature

The initial bronzers in the spray tan solution can transfer a minimal amount of product to clothing or fabrics. However, the bronzers are water soluble and will wash out of most fabrics.
