How do you wash after a spray tan?
The very first shower you should take after your spray tanning session should always be a simple warm water rinse! Yup, that’s right, no soap, body wash, hair washing, shaving or scrubbing. If you use soap before the 24-hour mark, you will stop the development of the spray tan, and will not achieve the best results.

Does spray tan wash off? No. Try not to shower within the initial development time – usually the 8 hours following your treatment. After this, your tan will fade naturally but showering should not wash it off your skin.
Why did my spray tan wash off?

It’s the browning process which occurs when the outer layer of the skin reacts with the tanning ingredient, DHA. It’s the same chemical reaction as when you cut a piece of fruit and leave it on the counter, and the same way bread gets a crust.
Will showering wash off my spray tan?
Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade the Sunless Spray Tanning results, cause possible streaking and will diminish the length of your tan. However, normal activities such as bathing, showering or physical activities will not affect the quality of the tan.
