Tanning Tips


Hair Removal

Wax 48 hours before tanning and Shave 24 hours before to allow your skin to recover and your pores to close.


Exfoliate thoroughly 24 hours before tanning. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the skins outermost layer to help ensure even coverage on application. After exfoliating moisturise your skin. 

Clean, Dry Skin

Shower 30 minutes before application. This will enable your skin to return to its natural PH balance and allow time for your pores to close. Do not apply body lotion or deodorant before tanning.

Moisturise Areas of Dry Skin

Apply a small amount of bBold Body Beautiful moisturiser to areas of dry skin to include hands, elbows, knees and ankles. This will provide a slight barrier and prevent a build up of tan.



Use a bBold Applicator Mitt

Using a bBold Applicator Mitt apply bBold Self Tan to the skin. All products within the bBold Range provide an instant colour therefore there is no risk of leaving areas untreated.

Apply More or Less

The instant colour achieved by bBold products helps indicate the depth of colour your tan will be when fully developed. Apply more or less to achieve your desired colour.

Wear Loose Clothing

Wait 2-5 minutes until your tan is dry before getting redressed. Wear loose dark clothes until your tan is fully developed.

Wait 8 hours

Avoid showering and vigorous exercise for up to 8 hours after application, until your tan is fully developed.


Use a Mild Moisturising Soap

Shower gels with a high PH level can cause your tan to fade from the skin faster. Use a mild moisturising soap to maintain your skins natural PH level and help prolong your tan for longer. 


Your tan will fade away from the skin as dead skin cells erode. To prolong your tan for longer moisturise your skin daily with bBold Body Beautiful moisturiser.
