If you PLAN to TAN, you need to DO IT RIGHT. When you go in the SUN, less is better, so you need to MEASURE your exposure and SET your sunning program to GRADUAL and BALANCED. To do this we recommend you use MAUI GOLD TAN browning lotion to color the skin, and reduced exposure daily until you develop a good BASE. Use a good SPF to protect your skin and keep your skin moist while tanning. Continue building you tan base, maintaining skin oil and adding skin tone “gradually”.
