Lux Beauty Lounge Before and After Tan Care Guide
Before your session
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate...exfoliate. It will help your tan last longer.
Avoid using bar soaps, high-pH shower products, and in-shower moisturizers as they can neutralize the DHA bronzing reaction within your skin.
Shaving, waxing, and/or use of depilatory creams should be completed at least 24 hours prior.
Day of your session
Come in to the boutique jewelry-free and adorned in dark, loose-fitting clothing. A bit of superficial color may rub off on your clothes, but don’t stress—it’ll wash right out.
B.Y.O.B (bring your own bathing-suit) or help yourself to our disposable bikini underwear and hair caps. Or, feel free to go nude--however you're comfortable. Men must wear shorts.
Don't add any barriers to your skin. Avoid lotions, creams, and perfumes. Remove all makeup and use deodorant sparingly.
After your session
Sunless color begins showing development approximately four hours after application and continues to darken for up to 24 hours.
Best to skip the shower, pool, or singin' in the rain for, ideally, 24 hours while your tan develops. If you must, do so using a warm water rinse only--no soap!
Use oil-free and/or pH-balancing body products and avoid exfoliation (that includes shaving) to keep that tan lingering longer.
Pools and spas that utilize chlorine can cause fading.
Extend your color between sessions with daily applications of Color Extending Pro-Long moisturizers.
Use 4-Faces or other Norvell self-tanning products between sessions for touch-ups.
