Can you tan over a fake tan?

Yes! Especially if you have fair skin that is prone to burning. Fake tan will not stop you getting a natural tan, it will simply act as an extra layer between your skin and the sun, and so the effects of the sun's rays will not be as strong.

How do I prepare for a tan?

Tan at the right time. You need to avoid water for at least 4-8 hours after you tan.

Exfoliate before your session to remove dead, dry skin cells. This allows the bronzing spray to absorb into fresh, clean skin.

Skip the lotion and makeup.

Wear lose-fitting, dark clothing until at least at 4 to 8 hours after you tan.
