Does salt water effect spray tan?

Question: Can you go in the ocean with a spray tan?

Answer: Anything that softens your skin and causes it to exfoliate sooner will affect your spray tan. However, from experience, short swims in the ocean (15 minutes) will generally not do too much damage (unless you will really get pounded from the waves or dragged on the sand by the waves, then it is a different story).

Swimming in chlorinated water is totally different. 15 minutes in chlorinated swimming pool will bleach spray tan almost to your original color.
