Question: do i spray tan and then lay in tanning bed and can I use lotion right after spray tan for tanning bed?


Answer: You can do it, but anything water based like lotion and sweat will make your tan patchy.

So, unless the tanning bed is very well ventilated and you do not sweat in it, don't do it. Lotion is also out if you had spray tan on the same day.
If you go for a sun bed session next day after spray tanning then your tan will be pretty much set and lotion and a bit of sweat will not harm it.

If you could use one of those sun booths where you stand up, that would be the best if you want to solarium tan right after spray tanning.

I bring a bottle of water and towel and after using the tanning bed and before spray tanning swipe off lotion. The spray tan sets alot better with nothing on your skin. And do it around 7-9 pm at night. That way you wont be tempted to shower. The longer you wait the longer your tan lasts.

I always tan first and then spray! It makes a big difference in the color and my skin seems to have that sunshine glow vs just the spray layer... The shop owner recommended it. I love it!!!
