I only use organic, paraben and alcohol free solutions. They are streak free, low odour and leave you with a natural colour in under 15 mins. Why mess about at home? You can choose what shade you would like, light, medium and dark. Before your tan please exfoliate, do not apply cream, deodrant, perfume or make-up to ensure an even tan. All waxing/shaving should be done 24 hours before a tan. Wear loose dark clothing and sandals (weather permitting).
Your tan can last anywhere between 6-9 days. This will depend on how dry your skin is and how you take care of it. You should moisturise everyday, pat your skin dry after bathing and avoid swimming pools and hot tubs (they contain chlorine which will strip the tan).
