Best way to apply gradual tanners

Apply to clean, and prepped skin. Avoid applying the Skin Perfecting Lotion directly out of the shower or immediately after exfoliating and shaving. Apply to the skin using your hands or with a Sjolie Applicator Mitt. The application should be in long circular motions where color is wanted. Apply every 2-3 days depending on the desired outcome.

Tip!   If using Skin Perfecting with an existing Spray Tan, wait a full 48-72 hours after the initial appointment to apply. This will avoid any overdevelopment or having too much DHA on the skin.

Staff Suggestions:

Try mixing 2 cap fulls of Luxe 9 solution in your Skin Perfecting bottle. Mix one capful at a time to evenly distribute. One you add the solution, shake it like a saltshaker to mix thoroughly and enjoy your beautiful, soft tan! Hint: You will need to squeeze out about an ounce first to make room; however, do not waste! You can squeeze out the ounce into a small sample cup to give to a potential buyer.

Use Skin Perfecting as your “base tan” in times when your skin is white as snow. I like to apply my Skin Perfecting the night before I know I will be applying Mousse. The light tan that develops from S.P acts as a perfect base to my Mousse tan. The added hydration benefits from the lotion is also a huge plus for my skin and for the longevity for my tan!

The Do’s and Don’ts of Skin Perfecting Lotion

  • Do wait at least 4 hours before applying after a hot shower and 12-18 hours after exfoliating/shaving for best results
  • Do apply with your hands or with a Sjolie Applicator Mitt.
  • Do apply in long circular motions, start at the legs and work your way up.
  • Do wash your hands, including in between your fingers, thoroughly after application with soap and water – if applied with bare hands
  • Do take your time with applying and avoid moving quickly through application to avoid any missed areas

Sjolie Star Ingredients and why we love them!

Kukui Nut Oil: Brought to Hawaii more than 1600 years ago from the Polynesians Islands, the Kukui Nut has been roasted and hard pressed to produce the extremely beneficial Kukui Nut Oil. The Kuki Nut Oil has natural antioxidant properties and is high in essential fatty acids! This oil is an excellent moisturizer as it settled deeply into the stratum corneum while it also plumps and firms the skin. It can help heal sunburn, soothe acne and is known to aid in other skin conditions, such as eczema!

Jojoba Oil – A native plant to the state of California, Jojoba Oil is packed full nutrients like vitamin B and E. It is extremely hydrating and provides long lasting moisturization. Because it is lighter than most facial oils, it has the capability of absorbing quickly and more efficiently into the skin. This oil will leave your skin healthy and glowing!

Cucumber Extract – Known to be an amazing superfood for the skin, cucumber extract is full of cooling properties, antioxidants and has powerful anti-aging benefits. Cucumber Extract provides deep hydration while soothing and relieving you skin.

Grape Extract – A great source of vitamin C and E, Grape Extract is an all-natural, active skin care ingredient that is extremely beneficial to all skin types. Grape Extract is known to protect the skin from harmful UV rays and free radicals. Working with the caffeine extract in our Skin Perfecting Lotion, this ingredient will firm and plum up the skin – giving a more smooth and toned appearance!

Sunflower Extract – Acting as a natural emollient, Sunflower Extract contains a high dosage of Vitamin E allowing moisture to absorb into the skin and stay there! Also rich in Vitamins A, C and D, Sunflower Extract helps fight acne and can also reduce the signs of aging, reduce inflammation and sooth irritated skin!

I have ORANGE hands / over development

What caused this issue?

  • Not washing hands after application.
  • Applying Skin Perfecting to dry areas of skin.

How to prevent the next time:

  • Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water after application.
  • Apply Skin Perfecting with Sjolie Applicator Mitt.
  • Apply a thin layer of quality moisture to dry areas of the skin (elbows, ankles, kneecaps) before applying S.P. The lotion will provide added moisture and act as a hydration “barrier” – preventing those areas from overdeveloping.

what if there is Skin irritation – i.e. itchy skin or bumps

What caused this issue?

  • Likely applied product directly out of the shower after shaving and exfoliating.

How to prevent the next time:

  • Even though this product has many calming and soothing ingredients, adding DHA to freshly exfoliated skin or skin that has been over exfoliated may cause irritation. Give your skin time to relax after a hot shower and wait a minimum of 4 hours before applying the lotion

I have missed areas or “streaks”

What caused this issue?

  • Moving too fast during application.
  • Not evenly distributed.

How to prevent the next time:

  • Focus on working on one area of the body at a time.
  • Remember tricky parts that are often overlooked when applying lotion –
    • Back of arms, inside/ back of thighs, rib cage.
