Luxatan Tanning Tips


Exfoliate, shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to tanning. For best results use an exfoliating glove and product containing AHA.

Exfoliate at end of your shower when skin is most hydrated.

Moisturise any dry areas before application, such as hands, knees, ankles and feet.

Use an ice cube or apply a cold compress to face prior to tanning. This will help to seal pores and prevent the ‘blackhead’ appearance of tan.

Apply tan from the ankles up and leave feet/hands until last, using the excess tan left on mitt to apply.

Apply moisturiser daily or anytime after showering.


Shave the day of or after tanning.

Apply any perfumes, oils or deodorants directly after tanning.

Exercise and avoid swimming/water while tan is developing.
