Thinking of getting a spray tan but worried it will fade too quickly or you won’t be able to maintain your bronzed glow? We answer all of your spray tan queries and provide expert tips and tricks on how to make your spray tan last.
How Long Does A Spray Tan Last?
A good quality spray tan will last up to a week, though it does vary according to your skin regime and the depth of the spray tan you opt for. A light bronze can fade in around 5 days, while a darker shade will stay put for a good week.
However, there are so many things that you can do to make your spray tan last!
How Can I Make My Spray Tan Last Longer?
1. Shower in lukewarm water
When it comes to washing off your spray tan, shower under lukewarm water and avoid using scrubs or soaps, as these can fade your tan. Simply rinse until the water runs clear.
After that, avoid having long baths or showers and use gentle, sulphate-free shower creams. It will make such a difference to how long your spray tan lasts!
Top Tip: In the hours between getting your spray tan and washing it off, wear black, loose–fitting clothes to avoid rubbing off your tan.
2. Moisturise twice a day
Dry skin sheds quicker, meaning your tan fades faster, so make sure that you keep your skin hydrated by applying a moisturiser day and night.
Our Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser blends Shea Butter with Apricot Kernel Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil to keep your skin hydrated. Apply it religiously twice a day to prolong your tan and keep your skin feeling velvety soft and smooth.
Top Tip: Make sure that you drink plenty of water as well. If your body is dehydrated, your skin will be too.
