We want you to have to maximum benefit from your tanning experience with us. In order to have the "perfect" tan, you need to make sure to prep your skin well before application. Not doing so may result in dry patches that soak up more solution and appear darker than other areas and may also cause the tan to not last as long.
Shower and lightly exfoliate 24-6 hours before tanning. Do not injure the skin with rough exfoliation.
Remove body hair 24-8 hours before your tanning session.
Skin should be clean and dry before being sprayed. Do not apply moisturizers, deodorants, anti-perspirants, oils, or makeup before your tanning appointment. They can affect tan development.
On rainy days bring an umbrella.
Remove jewelry before being sprayed.
Wear dark and loose clothing and shoes to your appointment.
You are allowed to bring a bathing suit to wear during your spray tan. Aviva Sunless Tanning Solutions DOES NOT permanently stained, so clothing can be washed.
Style hair off your face and neck.
Do not swim, sweat, bathe, or exercise for at least 8 hours after your tan application.
Your Aviva Sunless Tan will usually last for 5-8 days. For best results, clients should follow these post-tanning guidelines.
Wear dark, loose fitted clothing for 8 hours while tan is developing.
Do not exercise, sweat, swim, or bathe for at least 8 hours.
DO NOT use any products with mineral oil as it will stop the tanning agent (DHA).
After 8 hours, shower normally and do not use exfoliates or abrasives.
Wash with a mild shower gel, preferably Aviva Shower Glow DHA infused body wash gel.
It is normal to see your Aviva bronzer wash off in the shower. The tan is underneath this layer of bronzer. After your shower, pat dry with a towel, do not rub dry. When applying sunscreen products, use the spray mist, NOT anything that requires rubbing or friction on the skin.
Apply a moisturizer immediately after showering on damp skin. Use approved moisturizers (such as the Aviva Tan Restore, Skin Glow, or Velvet Soft Moisturizers as they are all infused with DHA to help you maintain your tan). If you do not have these products, you may use store products such as Jergen's Natural Glow, Cetaphil, or Aveeno. Please check the ingredients. Avoid anything that has mineral oils or heavy oils.
Apply a moisturizer twice a day. You can apply Aviva Tan Restore once a week. Be sure to scrub palms after applying tan restore.
Avoid manually exfoliating skin. Some products can cause faster fading. These include bar soaps, alcohol-based products such as toners and astringents, bug spray, acne cleansers or products that cause exfoliation such as AHAS, BHAs, Retin-A, etc.
