How Long Does a Full Spray Tan Last?

A full body spray tan is your best friend, whether you want a summer tan, get a glowing complexion for an event, or just have a tan all year round. Moreover, it protects and preserves your skin from the harmful UV rays from the sun. At BR Sun Spa, you can get the perfect tan that is FDA-approved, using top-quality ingredients to produce amazing results.

Spray tanning only penetrates your skin’s epidermis (the top layer). Harmful UV rays pierce this layer. Full body spray tan sessions are the perfect substitute for tanning in the sun or on a tanning bed, which may lead to wrinkles, pigmentation, aging, and skin cancer.

A spray tanning session is customizable with instant results due to the airbrushing technique used. You just need around 10 minutes for a full-body spray. Airbrushing gives you a perfect tan without the orange tint. Also, it doesn’t feel sticky or smells unpleasant at all.

Before your session, it’s important to exfoliate to remove dead skin cells. This will aid in your tan lasting longer. Wax or shave at least 24 hours before. Moisturize as much as possible using lotion moisturizers. If your skin is dry and flaky, the tan will settle unevenly and will fade more quickly.

After the session, wear loose-fitting clothes to let your tan settle. Do not shower for at least eight hours. Avoid lying in the sun, thinking that it can enhance your tan. You might have skin damage and peeling if you do this. Apply sunblock generously to protect your skin (and tan). Do not use products with retinol, alpha hydroxy or salicylic acid, and alcohol in their ingredients. These will encourage cell regeneration and will fade your tan much faster. Bar soaps and oil-based moisturizers are also not recommended because they can break down your tan pigment. Use lotion moisturizers instead.

How long does a full spray tan last? It usually lasts seven to 10 days, depending on the coverage. If you asked for a lighter color, the tan would fade quicker. Your skin is constantly generating new skin cells in your epidermis so any treatment will fade over time. There are products available that can help your tan last longer.

A year-round tan would require weekly appointments to keep your skin in the same shade. Ask your specialist for advice if you’d like a lighter tan.

You can get the shade you want at BR Sun Spa with their Sunless Spray tanning. You will get natural-looking results perfectly matched to your skin tone with just one visit. However, their sunless spray tan is completely cosmetic and does not provide protection from the sun. Many indoor tanners combine sunless spray tanning with sunbed tanning — a method called “cocktail tanning.” to achieve the perfect sunless color you are searching for. Your spray tan develops in 4-6 hours and can last up to 7 days!
