Prolonging your Sunless Tan

  • Proper skin care before, during and after sunless tanning will extend the life and look of your sunless spray tan.
  • Pat dry after your shower.  Vigorous rubbing will exfoliate your skin and your tan will not last as long.
  • Avoid exfoliating with loufas, body scrubs, body washes or soaps with exfoliating beads until your tan starts to fade away or in preparation of your next spray tan.
  • Try to limit the amount of shaving as it in another form of exfoliating, avoid hair removal products like Nair.
  • It’s recommended to not use face washes containing salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide, because they can eat away at your spray tan.  Your face will fade faster as you wash it more frequently. This also includes Acne spot creams.
  • Wait at least one day before going in the ocean or a pool after your tan.  Chlorine may make your tan fade faster, however it is not going to remove the tan immediately. 

As always moisturizing is a great way to extent and maintain your spray tan, it also helps your tan fade evenly as it wears away.
