Method, apparatus, and composition for automatically coating the human body and skin preconditioning system for use therewith
1. A method of preconditioning human skin prior to the application of a self-tanning composition thereto comprising the step of dehydrating the skin.
In a system for coating human skin, a chemical composition, such as a cosmetic or medical formulation, is uniformly coated over the entire body or selected parts of the body of the person being coated. The system includes atomization of the coating composition, containment of the atomized spray, and residual recovery which together yield a novel method for applying chemical compositions. An improved self-tanning composition is useful in conjunction with system is also disclosed. Also disclosed is a method of preconditioning the skin prior to applying the self-tanning composition.
