Will my spray tan look better after I shower?

Shower from 1 – 3 hours after your spray tan, 1 for a lighter tan, 2 for a natural tan and 3 for a darker tan. The bronzer washes off and there is NO colour after the shower. This is normal and the tan will continue to develop after the shower and will be fully developed in around 8 hours.

Why spray tans are bad for you?

Once hailed as the smart alternative to tanning outside, spray tans can also be hazardous to your health. The concern stems from use of dihydroxyacetone (DHA) in tanning solutions, which interacts with dead cells on the skin's surface to evoke color change. When used properly, DHA is considered safe.

What level spray tan should I get?

Level one is light, level 2 is medium and level 3 is dark. The Otown Tan staff spray with level 3 with hydration, or a double spray of level 2. We suggest if it is your first spray you choose a level 2. Level 2 gives a very nice color and if you want it darker next time you can go up a level.

How do I prepare for a Versa spray tan?

To prepare for your spray tan, we recommend exfoliating, shaving, and conditioning your skin the day before your sunless spray tanning session. We recommend using the VersaSpa Pre-Tan Exfoliant. The exfoliator gently removes dead skin cells to create a smooth canvas for an even sunless tan.

Can I spray tan everyday?

Can't have a spray tan done once a weekyou need to look after your skin. Your skin will naturally shed over five to ten days, and no self-tan will last longer than ten days. During the summertime, it sheds quicker because you're sweating, and you're in and out of swimming pools and the ocean.

What if my spray tan is too dark?

"If you do get too dark, slather on coconut oil or baby oil and sit for 10 minutes then jump in the shower and exfoliate," Hilliard tells me. "Oil lifts the top layer of color and makes skin easier to exfoliate so it will lighten your tan. You can also soak in a baking soda bath.

When should you get spray tan before event?

The best time to get a spray tan is about 3 days before your big event. This gives adequate time for the DHA (we'll talk more about this in a second) to fully develop the tan on your skin. It also gives you enough time to get a few showers to rinse off any bronzer or guide color.

How can I make my self tan look good?

Maintaining Your Fake Tan
  1. Moisturise using a non-oil-based moisturiser every day to keep your skin hydrated and therefore avoiding any cracking or flaking.
  2. Carefully pat your skin dry after baths/shower/swimming rather than rubbing.
  3. Be aware that the more you swim and shower the more your tan is likely to fade.

Will spray tan stain my sheets?

If any sunless tanning solution does stain your clothes you will most likely be able to wash it off in the machine or simply hand wash the stained area if your outfit is made of a delicate fabric. If you choose to do this be aware that your bed sheets may become discoloured if you're spray tan hasn't fully dried.

Do you spray tan your face?

Don't get a facial.
If you're having a total TLC day, choose whether you want to have a facial or a spray tan—just don't have both. “Facials should be avoided right before a spray tan because the tanner will go into the open pores on the skin and create blackhead-looking spots on the skin,” says Suszczynska.

Sadly, your faux tan won't last forever. “The darker the spray tan, the longer, in theory, it should last on your skin, because it'll contain a higher level of DHA,” says celebrity spray tanner and co-founder of Isle of Paradise, Jules Von Hep.
