3-Step Perfect Tanning Guide
In order to prolong the life of your Star Luxury Tan, there are a few steps that we would advise you to take before and after tan application.
Welcome to our 3-Step Perfect Tanning Guide...
STEP 1 - SKIN PREPARATION
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
These cells falling off prematurely, due to lack of exfoliation, will cause lighter areas to develop on the surface of the skin as the (now-tanned) dead skin cells fall off. The better the skin exfoliation, the longer lasting and deeper into your skin epidermis your tan will penetrate.
Shave excess body hair and exfoliate your skin before you are planning to apply your fresh tan. We advise waiting at least 4 hours after showering as this will give your skin time to relax and your pores time to close, ready to have your fresh tan applied.
STEP 2 - TAN APPLICATION
Apply our home-use Luxury Tanning Mousse using a good quality tanning mitt or the Luxury Salon Solution can be applied by a Qualified & Certified Star Tanning Technician. One thick coat of mousse or salon solution is enough to give you a perfect, natural, long-lasting colour. There is no need for "double coating" and doing so will only overload the skin with excess product. This causes an unnatural looking result that will only last a few days before beginning to wear of unevenly, rather than lasting the full 7-9 days that we expect when the products are applied as we have advised.
We have designed unique shade names; Shimmering Star for Fair-Light Skin-tones, Shining Star for Light-Medium Skin-tones, Shooting Star for Olive-Dark Skin-tones and Shadow Star, our Ultra Dark shade, designed to help even out pigmentation flaws, even in the darkest of skin-tones, common with skin conditions similar to Vitiligo
STEP 3 - PROLONG THE COLOUR
Pat yourself dry with a towel rather than rubbing your skin to avoid further exfoliation and apply moisturiser on a daily basis to ensure the results last for as long as possible. We estimate the results to last 7-9 days when you maintain your skin properly.
