How can I prepare my skin for sunless tanning?

Sunless Tanning: Skin Preparation

The night before you are ready to tan, women should shave areas of their body -- legs and underarms -- if they prefer. Men and women should shower and exfoliate the night before. You don't want to shower the day of your tan. Showering before eliminates natural oils in your body that could help your tan.

Some prep tanning lotions are available that you can use before you try sunless tanning. Make sure you talk to a tanning professional first before trying normal lotions or if you are unsure. Mixing certain lotions and then getting a sunless tan may irritate the skin.
