For a truly professional tan at home, this product delivers long-lasting, lightly golden color and has a hydrating formula that will replenish the skin's moisture levels as the color develops. To ensure even coverage, exfoliate thoroughly prior to application focusing on wrists, elbows, knees, ankles and feet. Moisturize these areas well including hands. After tanning, wait until skin is touch dry before dressing. Avoid contact with water for at least eight hours, then shower to reveal a light bronzed, golden tan.
