Rule #5: Scrub the Day Away
One day before tanning, scrub your entire body to get rid of any dead skin cells.
Exfoliating your skin isn’t only necessary for a sunless tan, it is also an essential step for indoor tanning sessions as well.
When you exfoliate your skin, you are working with your body’s natural process of shedding any dry patches. When you do this, especially before indoor tanning, you create a smooth canvas for all-over ray coverage.
Oasis Tip: Purchase a cheap exfoliation glove at your local drug store. Not only is it more effective than a loofah and exfoliating gel combined, but you can also ensure that all areas have been perfectly buffed and polished before allowing your lotion and UV rays to absorb into your skin.
The result? A longer lasting, even tan.
