How to use our Tan?
Exfoliate: using an exfoliating Scrub 24 hours before tanning to remove any dead skin cells for the ultimate flawless finish. Apply to wet skin areas on your body such as hands, feet, knees, ankles and elbows prior to application.
Apply: using a tanning mitt or gloves, or wash off straight away then massage tan in sweeping circular movements from head to toe, leaving hands, elbows and feet until last. Wipe your knuckles, knees, ankles, elbows and sides of feet with a slightly damp cloth. Your tan will develop gradually, and will seep in quickly. Do not shower or bath for a minimum of 4 hours, the ideal development time is 5 hours for the Tan. For the face it is 2 hours if you use the bronzing oil which is also good for keeping away those nasty pimples.
Maintain: treat your tan the way you would a real tan, moisturising it every day with our Bronzed Panther Gradual Butter. Exfoliate after three days for an even fade before reapplying your tan.
