Colour Not Lasting?
As with anything, proper care and maintenance is the key to longevity. It is important that clients are given the proper preparation procedures, either over the phone when the appointment is made or provided a prep sheet if they're in the salon when making their appointment.

Prior to tanning, skin must be well exfoliated. No deodorants, perfumes or moisturizers should be on the skin. To maintain the colour, soap-free ph balanced body washes are to be used and a nourishing moisturizer must be applied once or twice a day. Exposure to chlorine and extended hot baths may shorten the life of a spray tan. A client with oilier skin will find the tan will last better and longer than someone who has dry skin. Your face and hands will typically fade faster as you wash these areas more often.
