Sunless Tanning Secrets
because there isn't any in it. That's why it doesn't look fake like a lot of others but there are "secrets" to getting
the best, most natural looking tan with it.
First, shower and use a regular wash cloth. loofa or anything else you
might already like to exfoliate the skin. I discovered this helps speed up
the process because it starts with new, fresh skin cells, not the old
dead ones. Don't scrub so hard that you cause an abraision. Just a
nice firm scrub.
When your done, dry off and go to the next step. I put plastic grocery
store bags on my feet from the ankle down to keep the tops of my feet
from getting tan from the falling mist. Some of our customers have told
me that they apply a thin layer of cocoa butter or other natural lotion
like MSF Sweet Potato or Honey & ALoe to theirs. They also apply to
elbows and knees because those areas tend to get darker faster and
the lotion dilutes the Nada De Sol.
O.k. with those bases covered, it is best if you have a friend who can
spray you. Sure you can do it yourself (and I do most of the time) but
when I can get my husband to do it, the coverage is very even.
Have them hold the bottle about a foot from your body and spray evenly
from side to side, making sure to get an even coat. Applying too
much each time will cause runs and you don't want that or you'll have
streaks. Just a very light coat works like magic. I know you won't feel
like anything is happening but trust me, it is.
Cover your whole body or the areas you want tan with that first coat
and wait 3 minutes or so for it to dry. One of the things people love
about it is that it dries very fast.
Once the first coat dries, repeat the process two more times for a total of 3 coats the first day. You're done.
You'll see it the next day.
Repeat this process no more than three days straight o.k.? Once you've done if for three days, STOP and
wait for 48 hours for your tan to “mature” and show you the final shade. If you want to be darker, simply continue
to apply the Nada De Sol as above until you reach your ideal shade. Once that happens, you can usually
maintain your tan with a once a week application. Remember, you won't see the final results for 48 hours
after the final coat.
That's it! That's all you need to have a cool looking tan. And when people ask where you got your beautiful
tan, tell 'em Tahiti!
