Pre-Care & After Care Advice

Our guide to making the most of your LA Tan!

Before Your Tan

  • Exfoliate your skin using LA Tanning exfoliate body wash
  • Shave or wax at least 24 hours before your tan
  • Do not wear deodorant, perfume, aftershave or make up
  • Do not moisturise - this can act as a barrier
  • Wear dark, loose clothing and remove all jewellery

After Your Tan

  • Do not shower or bathe for at least 8 hours while your tan develops
  • Avoid any form of exercise that may cause you to perspire for at least 8 hours
  • As your tan develops, avoid touching or rubbing your skin
  • Avoid swimming, as chlorine can affect your tan
  • Long hot baths, showers and excessive use of soap will cause your tan to fade quicker, pat skin dry
  • Moisturise regularly with LA Tanning oil free moisturiser to maintain your tan
  • Prolong your tan using LA Tan extender
  • Following the correct pre care and after care advice, your LA Tan should last between 5-7 days
