Does sweat take off the tan? What about hot tubbing?

by Stace

Question:I go to the gym frequently and work up quite a sweat while I am there, will sweating make the tan run? Also, is it safe to hit the hot tub after 6-8 hours without any risk of it coming off?

Answer
The spray tan will only "run" (i.e.streak)if it is fresh, and did not have time to develope. After you waited few hours and had a shower, it will not run, but will get lighter in the places that sweat more, so you might have to "top up" some places with self tanner.
As to the hot tub, it is a spray tan killer. Your skin will get hot and soft, and exfoliate much quicker than normally, and likely in patches too. So, definitely stay out of the hot tub.
