- After your original tan treatment, we recommend waiting 8-10 hours before your first post treatment shower
After your express solution treatment, you may shower 3- 4 hours depending on how dark you would like to be. Leaving the solution on longer will make the tan become darker. Please make sure you do not keep our express solution on longer than 5 hours.
TIP: The tan may take longer to develop in certain areas, so it is important to leave it on for the full recommended time. You will see the true color a few hours after your first shower. If you see any creases, marks or areas where the tan has rubbed off, DO NOT PANIC! This is just the color guide. This will even out after your first shower.
After your shower, if you see any issues with your tan, contact the salon immediately. This is not common but can happen if the areas has been wet or touched before you took your shower. Its best to contact the salon to see if you did anything that should not have been done so you can avoid this happening with your next tan.
- The bronzer you see initially after the service is not your tan it is a color guide. As your tan develops you may get darker in the 8-12 hour developing time. This is the solution developing underneath. After you first shower you will be the same color as your color guide when you left Brazil Bronze.
- Please do not expose your skin to water, sweating or working out while your airbrush is developing.
- Use soap very lightly during your showers. Do not scrub your skin until you are ready to remove your tan before your next application. TIP: Best to use a moisturizing soap when showering with a spray tan.
- Please avoid waxing after the service it will result in taking your tan off.
Brazil Bronze strongly suggests moisturizing one to two times a day when your airbrush is on. Moisturizing correctly will extend your tan and make it fade evenly.
