FAQ: Moisturizers & Lotions

Do I need a tanning lotion?

Yes! Tanning lotion is a skin care product. Remember, our skin is the largest organ in our body and it is so important we take care of it properly. Not only do tanning skin care products add vitamins, nutrients and moisture for overall better color, but these products will actually increase your tanning potential 60-70%! Why tan more often when you can get better color, faster with the use of the right skin care products!

Why do I need to wear sunscreen even if I have a sunless tan?

Although you may feel and look like you have a real tan, a sunless tan is only the temporary appearance of a tan and therefore provides your skin with no real sunburn protection. It is still recommended to wear sunscreen when outdoors to protect your skin from overexposure.

How do I apply Barrier Cream correctly?

Barrier Cream is applied as a protective barrier to prevent unwanted color on the skin’s porous areas such as hands, feet, elbows, knees, nails and cuticles. Dispense a generous amount of Barrier Cream onto your hands and apply an even coating to the palms of the hands, in-between the fingers, tips of fingers, covering nails and around the cuticles. Also apply a generous layer of Barrier Cream to the bottom of feet, in-between the toes, covering toenails and cuticles and to the bending, rougher portions of elbows and knees.

Should I moisturize before I do an Automated Airbrush session?

You should use a moisturizer regularly to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, which will contribute to a more even, natural looking sunless tan. However, it is recommended NOT to apply moisturizers 2 hours prior to sunless tanning and 4 to 6 hours after.
