Step 1: Exfoliate
Exfoliation is the crux of any pre-tan routine. Try Sinless Sun Refine Exfoliating Cleanser with fruit acids that buffs off dead skin cells and moisturizes all in one easy step ($14). Scrubbing off dead skin ensures an even tan and helps your moisturizer penetrate more effectively. Soak in a warm bath first to loosen dead skin.
Step 2: Defuzz
Shave the night before your tan (men and women only shave what you normally shave). We also use a very gentle wax for our services, so you can wax and tan in the same day if you are getting waxed with us. With other waxes, waxing the day before your tan will give your skin a chance to calm down.
Step 3: Moisturize
After your tan, pick a lotion with Shea Butter, Aloe or Vitamin E. Our Sinless Sun Invigorating Body Lotion ($15) or Sinless Sun Sugar Smoothie Body Crème ($16) with a subtle shimmer to reflect light will help extend the life of your tan. Remember NOT to wear moisturizer the day you get your tan, though.
Step 4: Protect
Wear a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection-from both UVA & UVB rays. Try Sinless Sun Daily Mineral Guard SPF 25 ($19) with Soybean Extract to aid in cellular repair and reverse the signs of UV damage.
