For an average body a 5oz bottle will last approximately ONE month. Obviously, different body sizes require more or less sunless lotion.
No. When using the sunless lotion your skin will appear tan, though it’s not. This is an artificial tan and therefore your skin is still vulnerable to the sun. It is important to use at least a SPF 15 Lotion to protect you from the sun.

A minimum of four hours is required.
Yes, long exposure to water will fade your sunless tan. The outer cells will start to soak up water, which dilutes the effect of the tan. The longer you are in the water, the lighter your tan will get. Using sunless regularly at night allows the tan to saturate the skin better. The tan will then hold up longer in water. Be sure to moisturize every day, this helps maintain the tan.
The active ingredient (DHA) in the sunless lotion is unable to enter the blood stream, therefore there is no worry using it.

However, if you are still concerned, you should consult your physician.

This will prevent the sunless Lotion from getting on your clothes.

It is advisable to apply sunless lotion at night to achieve optimal result. The sunless lotion requires a minimum of four hours to react with the skin. However, the longer it is left on, the darker it will get. If you want it even much darker, reapply three nights consecutively.
Make sure you moisturize your skin every day. For optimum results use the sunless body moisturizer. The L-Tyrosine will activate your skin’s melanin thereby creating a longer lasting tan. To keep your sunless tan at the desired shade, reapply once or twice a week according to your liking.
