Key Ingredients + Benefits:
Aloe Vera Gel
Because our Illuminate Sunless Tanning Gel is formulated with aloe, it will feel cool to the skin when applied and you may experience a temporary tightening effect as it drys. Product should be stored in a cool, dark space, away from direct sunlight.
Before beginning, shake product vigorously, as natural products will separate between uses. Shaking ensures the active ingredient needed to darken the skin, has not settled at the bottom of the product.
Apply to clean, dry skin that is free of all products.
Gently apply to face, neck and décolleté. The application should be similar to applying foundation. Pay close attention to blending from face to neck to décolleté. Blend into hairline to avoid lines of demarcation.
If you have extremely light hair, avoid getting product in hair.
Reapply every few days, or as needed.
Wash hands and in between fingers, thoroughly after application
Product should remain on skin a minimum of 4-6 hours.
Do not get skin wet during development time. If liquid is splashed on skin during development time, it is best to gently blot dry affected area and then leave treatment alone to continue to develop.
Product should be stored in cool, dry area and out of the direct sun light. Refrigerate if possible.
AFTER APPLICATION IS COMPLETE
It is best to wear loose fitting, dark clothing, while product develops.
Your skin must remain dry for 4-6 hours. No workouts, no swimming, no showers, no bathing, or doing dishes, until application time is complete.
If it is necessary to wash your hands before development time is complete be especially careful to not submerge hands in water and then touch your face.
If you brush your teeth before the development process is complete, do not allow water to splash on your chin.
Be sure to wrap a paper towel around any glass, bottle or cup that you are drinking from. Perspiration may drip and interrupt the development process.
You do not need to be paranoid of water, simply be conscious of it. Water splashes on us more than we generally realize.
For those of us with dogs, big or small, be aware that the treatment is sweet, and our furry kids like to lick it. If this happens, please scroll to the Troubleshooting portion of this information.
