We would advise that you exfoliate the face and body at least 24 hours prior to the tan. Any waxing or shaving should also be carried out 24 hours prior to tanning. t You will wear paper pants for the tan and we would recommend you bring loose dark clothing to go home in. The tan will last for about 5-7 days if looked after correctly – apply St Tropez Body Moisturiser daily, and exfoliate approximately every 3 days to remove dry, dead skin cells, using St Tropez Body Exfoliator. We would advise you to have a tan 1-2 days before the special occasion.
