The best advice we can give you to prepare for your tan is to exfoliate moisturise and shave, 24 hours before you visit us.


The week before your tan you need to exfoliate your skin. Getting rid of nasty dead, dry skin and having fresh healthy skin cells will make sure that our Exposed Spray absorbs deeply into the skin and makes you a natural golden colour! If you don’t exfoliate the tan will look less natural, won’t last as long and fade in patches-exactly what you don’t want! We advise using exfoliating gloves (available in most pharmacies) and a good moisturizing shower cream or exfoliator. However try to avoid soap or shower gels that do not contain moisturizing agents as they can really dry out the skin.


Make sure to shave your legs or remove any other unwanted body hair the night before your tan also. Preferably, if you wax, do it 2 days before your tan, to allow the skin to recover and for the pores to close.


After you have exfoliated, apply a good body moisturizer all over the body, but remember to have a shower the next morning to wash this off!


Lotions & Potions-Do not apply lotions, moisturizers or perfumes prior to your session. Use deodorant sparingly. If you want a perfect tan you need to trust me on this one.


Exposed tan has little or no smell and drys almost instantly so you can dress within minutes of being sprayed. Exposed is so unique that after you have been sprayed you can go about your day without feeling damp or sticky but like any tanning solution I would recommend wearing dark underwear and clothes so to avoid staining.

To maintain your Tan the best advice is to moisturize moisturize moisturize! Remember healthy skin tans best.

Immediately after your tan:


If you tend to be a heavy sweater, my advice is to avoid any physical activity until the after the required 8 hours development period.

Wait to shower

Remember, you have just been tinted with a water-soluble solution. So you must avoid water entirely for at least 8 hours or you will stop the tanning action of the spray and/or cause streaking. For best results don’t shower until the morning after your tan has been applied.

No Swimming & Spas!

Avoid chemically treated swimming pools and spas for at least 24 hours after your spray session to prevent your gorgeous color from fading. Even after this chlorine will strip the skin and fade your tan rapidly. We suggesting dipping in and out – as apposed to long soaks!
