Q: How do I prep before my application?
A: Shower, exfoliate, shave, and dry skin completely. DO NOT apply any lotion or oils to skin before application if you want the area tan.
Q: How do I apply it?
A: Apply 1-2 pumps of foam to provided mitt. Apply to one body part at a time. (I personally start with my chest/neck, then to arms, stomach, thighs, lower legs, hands/feet, face and lastly my back) Apply in a circular motion. Apply lightly to the following areas: Face, hands, ankles, knees, and elbows.
Q: How often do I need to apply it?
A: One coat of Desert Bronze will last 5-7 days. If you want a very consistent dark tan with no fade time I suggest every 4 days.
Q: Will it fade or get patchy like most self-tanners?
A: Like any sel-tanner it will fade with time. There is not patchy phase with Desert Bronze.
Q: I have waited to long before reapplying or I have several coats and want a fresh start?
A: If you have any dark patches due to dryer areas of skin and you want to remove the tan, you have applied and applied over a long period of time and want it all off for a new start, or have waited too long before reapplying and want a fresh start. Soak in the tub or long shower, use your favorite scrub (not necessary) and an exfoliating mitt or loufa. Scrub vigorously. The new tan application will cover and distribute very well if not all tan is removed!! Do not stress.. Just add more tan! Trust me!
Q: When can I shower?
A: Please allow 6-8 hours before showering after application.
Q: How long does it take to dry on skin?
A: Tan application will dry within 3-5 minutes.
Q: Will it come off on my clothes?
A: Only if you immediately put on clothing before allowing to fully dry. If you do not rinse tan and your skin or clothing gets wet or you sweat. But only in this instance.
Q: Will it sweat off??
A: If you are wearing very tight clothing and are sweating extensively the tan will want to rub off like any self-tanner or spray tan. But do not stress. Simply shower, exfoliate in the general area and reapply as directed above.
Q: The color is dark but I want EVEN DARKER?
A: No problem!! Either apply a second coat on first application or after showering (6-8 hours after application) simply apply another coat!
Q: Why use a mitt?
A: I would not sell this product with out a mitt included. I have had tan palms too many times to leave that out for my customers. USE THE MITT!! You will achieve a streak free tan with clean palms this way!
Q: How do I maintain my tan?
A: Do not scrub body unless you exfoliating for new application. Wash lightly with soap. Using a daily moisturizing lotion will greatly improve the life time of your tan. When drying off DO NOT RUB roughly.
Q: Will it rinse off in the shower??
A: Like ANY self tanner or spray tan.. the solution will wash off BUT will leave you with a flawless, dark tan.
Q: Does Desert Bronze expire?
A: Yes, BUT NOT UNTIL YOU HAVE HAD IT A YEAR! 12 month self life
Q: Is it safe?
A: Desert Bronze is one of very few self tanning products that is 100% Vegan, organic and PETA approved. No harmful additives!
