The Norvell Auto Revolution™ is a state-of-the-art spray booth utilizing Norvell’s patented iNTELLiSPRAY Technology™ and Smart Booth™ designed to simulate the personalized touch of a handheld airbrush session while offering the privacy of an automatic spray booth.
Before your sunless spray tanning session:
Come in to get a bottle of exfoliator.
Your skin must be as clean and soft as possible, but to avoid stripping the necessary amino acids from your skin do not shower right before your spray. You also don't want to scrub your pores (really hair follicles), right before your spray. You need the natural oils to soften skin & protect the hair follicle from absorbing DHA and causing darker spots or larger looking "pores".
If you have extremely dry skin, you may use an oil based salt scrub exfoliator 36 - 48 hours prior to your Airbrush tan.
Do not use any oil-based product within 24 hours of your Sunless Tan.
The day before receiving your sunless tan, shower using Norvell's Amber Sun Body Scrub (A non oil-based exfoliator made especially for sunless tanning).
Make sure to shave the day before your Airbrush Tan (or better yet, wax at least 24 hours prior).
Do not apply any lotion, oil, make-up or deodorant right before your spray, as they will inhibit the DHA from absorbing into the skin.
Wear dark loose clothing to your appointment. Do not wear tight under garments, shoes, or other clothing that may rub off the sunless tanning solution. It is best to purchase "Sticky Feet" to use during & after your spray tan.
Apply lip balm.
After your sunless spray tanning session:
You may want to put an old towel on your car seat, to avoid staining the seat (and/or to protect from perspiring/smudging your tan). If it is raining, bring an umbrella!
Do not plan any activities that will cause you to sweat or cause your clothing to rub against your skin for at least 12 hours (preferably 18 hours)*.
Do not bathe or swim for at least 18 hours* after your sunless tan. It is preferable to wait 24 hours before using soap. This includes washing your hands, although with the Auto Revolution, we recommend a light hand rinse after 4-8 hours.
Do not use body scrubs, exfoliators, luffas or harsh soaps after your sunless tan (unless you wish to remove the tan).
Use only mild salon quality body wash.
Do not apply any lotion until after your first rinse. After that, apply only a salon quality lotion that is designed specifically for tanners and will not dry out your skin, as many over-the-counter lotions will.
To extend your tan further, we highly recommend using a Norvell Tan Extender. Wait at least 48 hours after your sunless tan, (unless you need to fix any areas you may have smudged) then only use as needed to keep tan even as it starts to fade due to exfoliation.
* you may rinse in 1 - 3 hours if you use Venetian ONE sunless soluton
Sunless Prep & Maintenance Kit
We highly recommend that you purchase our prep & maintenance kit before any Sunless Tan. The small kit is only $8 (which is less than 1/2 the retail value). It includes a packet of: Vivid Amplify PH equalizer, after spray tan extender, & moisturizer (as well as a single use lip balm, sunless eye protection & nose guards upon request). When the kit is purchased you may have sticky feet and/or other Sunless products and accessories for 20% off!
If you do happen to come unprepared, we sell sunless exfoliating & priming towelettes and Mitts.
