With the change in weather from the summer to fall and winter our skin begins to dry out. Colder weather brings warmer showers and exposure to cold, dry conditions which will take a toll on your skin. When the seasons change to a colder climate it's very important to stay hydrated and keep your skin moisturized...especially when you get a spray tan.
Norvell Prolong has time release micro capsules that hold and bind the moisture in your skin and the DHA is locked into the top layer of skin. We will typically advise our clients to wait two days to start using the tan extender and then it can be used daily waiting eight hours to reapply.
When applying Norvell Prolong you want to make sure you smooth it on and rub it all over your skin so it evenly blends. Try avoid rubbing it on areas that are generally ultra dry such as your knuckles, elbows and knees or avoid these areas all together. It will give off a darker appearance when it is rubbed into these areas so it's best to avoid them for a natural looking bronze.
Some people will use latex gloves or an applicator mitt when applying this product to avoid staining your palms. If you don't have either just be sure to wash your hands with soap and water immediately after applying.
This is such a wonderful product to use and you'll notice results roughly 6-8 hours after applying and the smell is great! We always recommend this to clients that want to extend the life of their tan a few extra days or keep their skin moisturized and looking beautiful. It's a great product to take with you when you travel and you need a bronze touch up.
Novell makes some wonderful sunless tanning products and this is one of my favorites and a go to product especially in the fall and winter when your skin always looks dry and damaged.
Wait two days to use after your spray tan and apply daily. Wait 8 hours or longer to reapply and be sure to smooth on evenly and blend it in your skin. Use sparingly around your knuckles, elbows, knees and ankles or avoid these areas all together. To avoid this product from staining your palm you can wash your hands immediately with soap and water or use an applicator mitt. Please remember this product does not contain sunscreen so be sure to apply sunscreen when going outside.
