- Cover the area of the eye with Goggles, a MagicTan recommended product.
- Protect the lips with a lip balm.
- Use a nasal filter or a Mouth Guard provided at Our salons.

The art of the perfect tan
It’s easy to get a great tan with Magic Tan!
Here are a few tips about sunless tanning to help you get that perfect result every time!
- For best results, Shower & exfoliate. Exfoliation smooths the natural ridges in your skin creating a much more even tan. Do not use an exfoliant that contains oils.
- Do not apply deodorant, creams perfumes or lotions.
- Prepare your skin. Imagine your skin is a very dry sponge (it is actually!). Pour water on a dry sponge and the water simply bounces off. The same thing happens with tanning solution.That is why MagicTan developed their special Prep Skin Conditioner. It moisturizes your skin and prepares it for the tanning solution. Prep Gel also neutralizes the pH balance of your skin. Prep Gel has been shown to make your tan as much as 30% darker as well as more consistent.
- Make it last. Your tan should last for at least 5 days but remember that your skin recycles itself regularly. Long baths and showers, swimming, lying on a sandy beach, will all encourage your skin to exfoliate naturally, losing your tan in the process.
