Frequently Asked Questions

What are some common mistakes made when applying tanning products at home? How do you avoid them?

The most overlooked steps that is also the most important in achieving a natural and long-lasting tan is exfoliating. As skin naturally regenerates, any tanning product will come off with it. The less dead skin that is present and the more moisturized skin is, the longer the tan will be preserved. Our body scrub and body butter are perfect products for preparing and maintaining a sunless tan.

What is the best way to prepare skin for an at-home sunless tan?

We suggest showering and exfoliating with our body wash/scrub to remove any dead skin cells. Our body butter can be applied on any extra dry areas, such as elbows and knees, and pat dry prior to applying our bikini attitude. Remove any makeup or perfume that serves as a barrier to the tanning product.

Do at-home tanning products provide the same tan quality as salon spray tans?

Yes, as with salon tans, if properly prepared and maintained the results should be the exact same.

What can I do to make sure that my tan lasts as long as possible?

Exfoliate prior to application and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

Are The Tan Can products safe to use while pregnant?

Absolutely, but as with any product, we suggest consulting your doctor beforehand just to be safe.

How do I apply The Tan Can sunless tanner?

Before using both the spray and/or the lotion, proper exfoliation is suggested. For the spray, apply in a sweeping motion held about 4-6 inches away from the skin. For the lotion, apply in a circular motion thoroughly. After application, the use of a kabuki brush (or any dense, flat top brush) to blend and buff will ensure an even and blended tan.

Can I use the body tanner on my face as well?

Absolutely! Our products are high-performance and coupled with DHA and other anti-aging ingredients to give you a light glow without clogging pores.

How long do I need to wait before showering after applying The Tan Can?

Our formula takes 8-10 hours to develop its full color, which afterward you are free to shower. However, be sure that your entire body is dry before getting dressed to prevent any uneven color setting.

How long will my tan last? Will my tan ever get streaky or patchy?

7-10 days with proper preparation and maintenance, and no as long as it is applied as directed.
