Tanning "Piel de Oro" Q & A

What is Piel del Oro Tanning?

Piel del Oro tanning is a 100% natural DHA tanning product. DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is the active ingredient. It’s a colorless chemical that interacts with the amino acids in your skin triggering a color change.

Your tan lasts 7-10 days depending on how quickly your body sheds old skin cells. You can have a Piel del Oro tan once every seven days to maintain your glowing and bronzed appearance.

Your body doesn’t absorb Piel del Oro tanning solutions and is safe for everyone to use, even pregnant or breastfeeding women.

How Should I Prepare For My Tan?

Before your tanning appointment, you can prepare your skin by exfoliating your entire body. You should also complete any shaving, waxing, or plucking before your tan to ensure you have a smooth, even result.

You should also avoid wearing any skin creams, deodorant, makeup, or perfume before your appointment as these chemicals could affect the evenness of your tan. Make sure to wear loose-fitting clothing to and from your appointment.

What Happens During the Tanning Process?

You will undress for your tan and wear either your underwear or a swimsuit. A member of the team at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness sprays your skin with the Piel del Oro solution. The solution is colorless, so you won’t notice a change in your skin tone immediately. However, in the hours following your spray tan, the Piel del Oro solution interacts with your skin to create a healthy-looking tan.

How Should I Take Care of My Skin to Preserve My Tan?

You need to avoid showering, bathing, or swimming for eight hours after your spray tan. You also shouldn’t apply any perfumes or creams during this time. You will also need to wash your hands frequently as every time you touch your skin, you may stain your hands.

After the first eight hours, you should shower. It’s normal for your tan to lighten after this first shower. You can preserve your tan by using gentle cleansing gels with neutral pH levels. After the first eight hours, you can apply skin creams to keep your skin hydrated.
