Tip 1 - Shave and exfoliate at least 24 hrs prior to tanning – this will ensure an even tan application.


Tip 2 - Leave yourself enough time - Whether you’re tanning for that special occasion or as part of your weekly routine, ensure you leave enough time for application and development of your tan. Generally, it takes around 15 minutes to apply the tan.

Development times are as follows:

  • Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse (Medium, Dark and Ultra Dark) series - 6 - 8 hours (8 recommended); and
  • Loving Tan 2 Hr Express (Medium and Dark) series - 2 Hours only.

We recommend you tan 1 - 2 days prior to any special event. This also allows you time to apply an extra layer of tan if you would like a deeper colour. If you are an experienced self tanner, you can apply a second layer of tan 10 minutes after the first coat is applied.


TIP 3 - Have your goodies ready - you will need to have your:

  • Moisturiser;
  • Loving Tan Applicator Mitt; and
  • Favourite Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse or Loving Tan 2 Hr Express Deluxe Bronzing Mousse ready.


TIP 4 - Tan in front of a mirror with good lighting - we recommend you tan yourself in front of a mirror with natural or bright lighting to ensure no spots are missed. It is also handy to use a bathtub, chair or toilet seat to put your leg on while applying tan on the backs of your legs.
