Wait at least 6 hours before bathing, swimming, or high sweat activities, 24 hours whenever possible. 

If using our emergency solution a "warm water rinse" is possible in as little as 1 hour.

 

Avoid swimming in chlorinated water, bar soaps, and high fragrance body wash as these will break down and fade your tan.

Do not use lotion or skin care products that contain mineral oil or petrolatum as these will also break down the tan. 

You will have a natural, beautiful golden tan that will last 5 - 7 days with proper maintenance
