The Day of Your Visit**
-SHOWER WITH BODY WASH OR SOAP* Use a light body wash or glycerin soap. Do not use moisture rich soaps such as DOVE that will create a barrier on the skin.
-DO NOT MOISTURIZE AFTER THIS SHOWER OR YOUR TAN WILL NOT ADHERE PROPERLY**
-You may tan in under garments, topless or nude(women only). Please wear dark, loose fitting clothing and bring flip flops or loose fitting shoes.
-Men should wear shorts, briefs or bikini briefs.
-Avoid clothing with tight elastics.
-Please do no wear jewelry, lotion, deodorant, perfume, cologne, contacts or facial makeup.
-If you are coming from work, please bring facial wipes.
-Please be prepared for inclement weather and make sure you are fully covered**
-In the summer months we recommend you place a cloth on your car seat to avoid any color transfer onto leather.
After Your Visit***
-Do not touch your skin with your palms
-Do not shower for 8 hours.
-Avoid ALL contact with liquids of any sort until your first shower.
-Use hand sanitizer and paper towel, should you need to cleanse your palms.
-Avoid EXTENDED time in pools and try to avoid jacuzzi's.
-It is possible that some color may transfer to clothing or bed sheets. The solutions are water soluble and will remove easily in the wash if washed within a day or two.
-It is crucial to use a quality moisturizer every day after you have had a spray tan* Most drug store brand lotions contain mineral oil, petroleum, heavy alcohol, sodium lauryl sulfates, phthalates, preservatives & loads of other chemicals which may strip the tan.
Bali Glow carries an all natural, 98% plant based ANTI-AGING body moisturizer that has specifically been formulated to seal in your tan and help maintain its longevity* Ask your provider for more details.
-Use a fresh razor with a moisture strip.
-Once you start to see the tan fade, fully exfoliate.
-Your tan should last an average of a week if you have prepared the skin properly and have followed the aftercare.
-Repeat the same steps when preparing for your next visit. Be sure to remove ALL color to start fresh*
-And finally.. Drink lots of water to maintain hydration. Healthy looking skin starts from the inside out!
