How Long Does A Spray Tan Last?
Typically, a spray tan will last between 4-7 days. Since our skin naturally rejuvenates itself, the product fades as the skin is exfoliated. Everyone’s skin is a little different, so the longevity will depend on how quickly your skin regenerates and your unique skincare regimen. However, there are a few ways to help keep your tan longer.
Tips For A Longer-Lasting Tan
Here are a few easy tips to ensure that your spray tan glows for as long as possible:
- Wait to shower for at least 6 hours after a spray tan. This will guarantee that the self-tanning ingredients have enough time to react completely with the skin’s proteins.
- Keep your skin moisturized. By frequently applying moisturizers and lotions on your body, you will prevent the skin from flaking off as quickly. Healthy skin leads to a longer-lasting tan!
- Stay hydrated. Similar to the point above, you want your skin to stay as healthy and hydrated as possible. Be ready to up your water intake and maybe drink a little bit less coffee to keep your body hydrated.
- Wear loose-fitting clothing. Especially right after your spray tan appointment, avoid wearing tight clothing that will rub against your freshly-bronzed skin. Don’t plan on putting on a pair of skinny jeans right after!
How Often Should I Get A Spray Tan?
Different clients have varying preferences when it comes to color intensity and frequency. If you want to keep a darker, more intense tan throughout the week, you will probably need to book a Sunless session every 3-4 days. However, some people can wait 7-10 days between sessions. While some clients only book once for a short-term glow, we encourage you to take advantage of our current promotion, the buy 3, get 1 free, and to keep up to date with our other promotions!
