How Does Sunless Tanning Work?

The Straturn corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis, is the layer that is most affected by the most sunless tanning products.

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a colorless sugar which interacts with the amino acids within the skin cells, producing a color change that typically lasts 5-7 days.

Temporary Cosmetic Bronzers provide an immediate tan color while your DHA sunless tan will darken over the next 24 hours. You will see the temporary cosmetic color washing off your body during your first shower. This is completely normal. Your actual developed sunless tan will not wash away, though it may appear slightly lighter in color after cosmetic bronzers are removed from the skin.

Temporary Cosmetic bronzers may rub off on light colored clothing and furnishings, but typically wash out of most items.

How should I prepare for my session?

Up to 24 hours before your session, we recommend Using a mild body polish such as Norvell’s Renewing Sunless Exfoliator. Any heavy exfoliation or oily scrubs Should not be used 24 to 48 hours before your session.

If you forget to exfoliate, Norvell eXmitt can provide a light exfoliation that can be done right before your session, with no rinsing required. Shaving and waxing should also be done
at least 24 hours in advance.

For best sunless results the skin should be clean of any Barriers like moisturizer, sweat, perfume, and make up. You should us deodorant sparingly.

Hair caps may be worn to protect blonde or grey hair, but is not necessary for darker hair, as any small amounts that get in the hair will wash out.

You may also want to use foot protectors to shield the bottoms of your feet from the sunless solution.

Should I choose level 1, 2 or 3 for my spray tan?

You should choose a level based on how dark you would like your sunless to be:

Level 1: great for fair skin tones and those who are seeking a natural glow.

Level 2: Creates a darker tan, suitable for all skin tones.

Level 3: For those seeking the darkest sunless tan.

Will a sunless tan provide me with sun protection?

No. DHA does not build melanin in the skin as a sun tan does (UV light). DHA works with the amino acids and body oils found in the outer layer of the skin to turn them tan. It is important to use an SPF when going outside, to protect you from the sun’s rays.

Does the spray solution have a bad smell?

All Norvell Sunless spray solutions are designed with special fragrances containing odor encapsulations molecules that trap and minimize common sunless smells.

How should I care for my tan after my session?

Wear dark loos fitting clothing until your first shower when you wash the cosmetic bronzer off your skin. Avoid any water related activities such as: Sweating, Working out, Showering, Swimming, Saunas, Rain, Massages, Pedicures, Manicures.

Long soaks in any body of water can prematurely fade your tan. Keep skin thoroughly moisturized after your first shower, and throughout the life of your tan. Using a tan extending lotion such as Norvell Prolong, will keep your sunless color looking fresh and vibrant.

How long will my spray tan last?

The average tan lasts about 5-7 days. There are many factors that determine this length, including how you prepare your skin before you tan and care for your skin after you tan.

How long should I wait to shower?

For your first shower, we recommend a warm, (not hot) water rinse only. No soap. You may shower as soon as 4 hours; however, for best results we recommend waiting 8 to 24 hours. Showering
prematurely may result in a lighter tan. The active sunless ingredient, DHA continues to work with your skin for up to 24 hours. Waiting longer will give you a deeper, longer lasting sunless tan.

Do I need to towel off or rub the tanning solution into my skin after the session?

No. The spray tan solution will not drip or run on the body. There is virtually no stickiness or dry time once your session has completed.
