How to achieve your perfect glow!

Pre Tan-

  • Try to wax or shave at least 24 hours before applying Tan Tootie, this will allow your pores time to close.

  • Exfoliate and moisturise 24 hours before you apply TT, making sure you pay particular attention to any dry areas like your elbows, knees, ankles!

  • Before applying TT, make sure your skin is clean and dry.



  • Apply a pump of TT mousse onto your TT applicator Mitt.

  • Work it onto your skin in smooth circular motions for an even, streak free tan.

  • Remember to work fast as TT is quick drying!

  • If you have an unwanted line, apply another half pump to your mitt and smooth over the area until blended.

  • Use your mini mitt to tan delicate areas like your face, hands and feet.


Development Time

  • Just a subtle glow? Rinse off after 1 hour.

  • A sun kissed tan? Rinse off after 2 hours.

  • Deep, dark bronze? Rinse off after 3+ hours.

  • Want your deepest darkest tan? Apply a second coat after 30 minutes and leave to develop for your desired time.

If you’re in a hurry, apply a second coat after 30 minutes and rinse after 1-2hours.

*Do not exceed 10 hour development time.


  • Remember you control your colour depth!!!

  • You can get dressed after a couple of minutes (TT dries UNBELIEVABLY fast)

  • Try to avoid moisturiser, perfume and deodorant before washing off.

(If you’re a rebel and like to sleep in your tan, it’s ok as TT wont stain your sheets!)

After Care-

  • After leaving your tan on for your desired time, rinse off in the shower with just water. Do not use shower gel, body scrubs or a loofah for the first 24hrs.

  • Pat your skin dry with your towel.

  • Moisturise everyday after applying TT, this will ensure to keep your skin hydrated and make your tan last longer.



  • If you cannot wait 24 hours before tanning after shaving or waxing, rub a cold compress or frozen  peas over the area.

  •  Keep in mind that too much moisture can cause the mousse to slide right off your skin. Don’t apply moisturiser except small amounts to your knees and elbows — these are areas where tan sometimes absorbs too much. This will help stop these areas from getting too dark.

  •  If you feel like your tan has grabbed in unwanted areas, use a baby or makeup wipe to gently wipe away the excess.

  •  HELP - My tan is going down the drain!? Don’t Worry! The brown bronzers will wash away, while the active ingredients continue to work and deepen.
