On the day of your tan:

Scrub like there's no tomorrow

DO NOT moisturise.... including your face! (You don't want a white face and brown body!)

Avoid shaving

At your tan:

Remove all make-up

Remove traces of deodorant (green armpits aren't a good look)

Bring baggy clothes and flip flops to wear home (leggings ARE NOT baggy clothes!)

Post Tan:

Avoid too much shaving

Moisturise to your hearts content

Scrub every couple of days to allow even fading
