Toned is lightly tinted so you can easily see where you have sprayed. There is no need to over-spray – your tan will start developing in a few hours. If you have light skin, a light application the first time is better.
Consider the following additional application tips:
- Use care to cover eyes and then apply around the eyes with a make-up sponge or cloth.
- Only lightly spray the backs of the hands and the top of your feet.
- Do not spray your palms and the soles of your feet.
- Washing your palms is a good idea when you are done.
- The color will fully develop over 6 to 8 hours after which you can shower.
- Wear loose clothing.
- Remember immediate washing or activities causing you to perspire right after spraying will affect the length of your tan.
- Let your tan develop.
- For darker color or touch ups, you can re-apply the next day. Don’t exfoliate first.
If you get any type of instant tanner in your eyes, flush with water.
