A guide to achieve perfect sunless color


  • The first steps to getting the perfect sunless tan happen before you even get to the tanning salon.
  • Shower, shave and exfoliate your skin.
  • Avoid using moisturizers and lotions that are not specially formulated for sunless tanning before your sunless session.
  • Avoid wearing perfumes or make-up that provides a barrier for absorption.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to your session.

Your sunless tan will last anywhere from 3-7 days, and you can protect your tan by making sure you:

  • Wait at least 6 hours before bathing, swimming or coming in contact with water.
  • Avoid engaging in activities that cause you to sweat heavily until your tan has fully developed (at least 6 hours).

Proper skin care before, during and after sunless tanning will extend the life and look of your tan. At Miss Alter Ego, I carry the highest quality of indoor tanning products available.
