Jan Marini Bioglycolic Sunless Self Tanner
Bioglycolic Sunless Self-Tanner enables patients to enjoy an attractive glowing tan without harmful sun exposure. Bioglycolic Sunless Self-Tanner is not a dye or a coating, but utilizes an amino acid that interacts with the skin's proteins, activating a beautiful, natural-appearing, long-lasting colour change. Each customer will experience an individual tanning shade that is in keeping with their own natural colouration and skin tones, but they will also benefit from a richer and more even hue than can be achieved through sunbathing.
In addition, Jan Marini has taken sunless tanning technology even further by developing a preparation that incorporates a small percentage of glycolic acid. Glycolic acid ensures better penetration, decreases the time that is necessary for the colour to appear, and also lengthens the wearability before another application is needed.
Bioglycolic Sunless Self-Tanner cream is an excellent alternative for patients who have been wisely advised to limit their sun exposure, but still wish to cultivate a "bronzed" appearance.

Apply one coat eveny to desired areas. Apply sparingly around callused areas, knees and elbows as more product may be absorbed and color could turn a darker shade than surrounding skin. Wash hands immediately to avoid color changes on the palms. Make sure skin is dry before dressing. Color will take approximately 2-4 hours to develop. If a darker skin tone is desired, a second application may be applied. You may reapply as many times as necessary to reach the desired depth of color. Continuing to use product once or twice weekly will maintain results.
Products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) may cause initial flaking, tingling or irriation to the skin. For some this may be part of the normal resurfacing process.This generally improves as the skin ‘gets used’ to the treatment. AHA products may be introduced with less frequent use, and application can be increased as the skin acclimates(follow product directions). At first start by gradually introducing one AHA product at a time into your skincare regime. Also some breakouts may occur initially, due to purging of the follicles.
Discontinue use if you have severe redness, itching, burning, rash, swelling or blistering.Apply a sunscreen daily when using products that contain Alpha Hydroxy acids (AHA's).
