Showering After a Spray Tan
Getting a spray-on tan is a quick and easy way to get a healthy glow. However, not only must you prep for your spray-on tan beforehand, but you must also take care of it afterwards. Ideally, you should wait at least 4-12 hours to shower with a spray tan. The reason why you must wait is because the tan needs time to 'set,' or settle in the skin. It can wash off or fade with water if not set. The type of spray-on tan you use can lengthen or shorten the amount of time you should go before showering. When you get a spray-on tan, take care of it afterwards to ensure that it lasts longer and looks even. Avoid scrubbing at the tan or using exfoliators, as they may cause the tan to become patchy.
