Directions from packaging:

Golden Rules for the Perfect Tan: For an even longer lasting tan you need to keep skin sleek, smooth and well hydrated. So, after regular exfoliation with St. Tropez Body Polish smooth this hydrating moisturizer all over your body inbetween self tan applications. Prior to self tanning we recommend you apply to dry areas (elbows, hands, knees, ankles and feet).

Warnings from packaging:

Dos and Don'ts: Don't apply to broken, irritated or sensitive skin. Stop using if your skin becomes irritated. Try not to get it in your eyes. If you do, simply rinse thoroughly with water. For external use only. Sun Safety Warning: This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
