When is the best time to apply the towelettes?
It really comes down to what is most convenient for you. We recommend you shower and clean everything off of your skin just before application. Do not use any products containing oils, lotions or creams that are “leave on” and won’t wash off, or could create a barrier between your skin and the TanTowel towelette before application. It is a popular choice to use the towelettes at night right before bed - then when you wake up in the morning the development time has passed, you wake up tan and able to go about your regular morning skin routine. If you apply the towelette during the day, give yourself the 4-6 hour development time before you apply anything else to your skin (unless it is TanTowel branded product like On The Glow® or Moisture Mist) or else you might interrupt the development of your color.
Should I exfoliate before using the towelettes?
Exfoliation is not a requirement every time you use the towelettes, but we highly recommend it for a smooth application. Do exfoliate before the application if you decide to, not after. You can also use our X-Foliator® towelettes that dry instantly just before the tan application. If you are prone to dry spots on your skin, or if your skin feels a little rough, exfoliation will likely help the even distribution of your tan. Know that the drier your skin is in spots, the more formula it will try to absorb, and those spots could potentially develop darker in color as a result.
Should I moisturize before, or after using the towelettes?
TanTowel towelettes need to be applied to clean and dry skin - meaning free of any lotions, creams, make-ups or oils that leave a “film” barrier you can feel on the skin. Touch your skin, and if it feels soft and dry you should be okay to apply the towelette. We recommend using TanTowel Moisture Mist and TanTowel On The Glow® lotions after your towelette application; these have been designed to work with TanTowel self-tan development and will not inhibit the tan. We recommend that you wait 10 minutes before applying either the TanTowel Moisture Mist, or TanTowel On the Glow®. Otherwise, you need to wait 4-6 hours so as not to interrupt the tanning process.
How long do the towelettes take to dry on my skin?
The TanTowel formula dries within seconds of application. You can get dressed right away, because there is no stain or dyes - and it will not come off on your clothing.
Can I use the towelettes on my face?
Yes, TanTowel was created for both the face and body. Avoid getting the product in your eyes or mouth as best you can.
When using the towelettes, should you wash your hands periodically to prevent staining?
Yes, or If your hands are dry you can apply lotion to them before you start your application to help create a barrier - this will slow down the absorbing process, but be sure to wash your hands after application. We recommend having a moist hand towel ready; then when you are done applying your TanTowel, you can rub your palms and fingers on the moist hand towel. You can also wear latex or nitrile gloves during the majority of your application, and remove them at the end to finish with tanning the tops of your hands. When you're done it's recommended you wash your palms.
How many towelettes do I need to do an entire body application?
TanTowel® Half Body towelettes will cover approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of the average person's body. Coverage also depends on your size, height, skin dryness and porosity. TanTowel® Full Body will complete a full body (head to toe) application on an average-sized person.
