Like preparation, after-care of your spray tan is equally as important to ensure your tan reaches its full potential.
When you come to your appointment, remember to bring loose-fitting clothing to wear for the remainder of the day. If you are going to sleep before your first rinse, continue to wear loose clothing to avoid skin to skin contact.
Most importantly, avoid getting wet, including sweating, until you are ready to shower. A warm water rinse only is recommended between 5-7 hours, followed by your usual shower routine after 24 hours. During showers, do not exfoliate, use a loofah, or any type of scrub until you are ready for your tan to come off. If you must shave, use a new razor. After you shower or get wet otherwise, pat dry only.
Skin hydration is a key factor in extending the life of your tan. After every shower, moisturize your skin with salon-approved lotion as these will not neutralize the DHA or streak your tan. Salt water and chlorine can affect the longevity of your tan. Your tan has a lifespan of 7-10 days when you stay hydrated and moisturized.
