Question: WHAT FAKE TAN CAN I USE THAT WILL NOT GO STREAKY AND UGLY WHEN I SWIM IN SALT WATER POOLS OR BEACH??? GOING ON HOLIDAYS AND IM SOOOOOO WHITE I NEED TO USE FAKE TAN BUT IN THE PAST I HAVE SAT OUT AND NOT SWAM BECAUSE OF MY STUPID FAKE TAN....

Answer: No fake tan will withstand long swims in the water, however you can take measures to keep it nice after your swim.
Just take with you some of this self tanner lotion that builds up tan gradually and after each swim (and a shower to rinse off salt) moisturize your whole body with it. That will repair most of the damage that you got while swimming and will make your tan even again.
After few days on the beach you will get some sort of natural glow anyway and so it will be a lot easier to keep your color.

Make sure that before you come back home you apply a fake tan to your whole body. That way you will come back with a great tan that will take ages to fade and everybody will think that it is natural since you just came back from holidays.

bet she didnt prep either

Typical client really, probably didn't do any preparation before her spray tan, probably had deodorant on too. Didn't listen to the technicans advise on either how to prep for tan or after care.

Oh and I bet she blames the salon too for her streaky tan, wouldn't be her fault at all would it!!!??

Boshena's comment: Yes, that does happen, and I used to guarantee my work and offer them a free tan. Amazingly when I did that some of them owned up to the fact that they did not prepare properly and when they came for their free spray tan they were scrubbed extra well and their tan came out beautiful. I got few long term, loyal clients by treating them this way.

On the other hand I did have a few that just used me and still were nasty even after the free tan however I did not see them ever again after this. I found that those were such a small percentage, that although it was quite traumatic to go through that abuse it was still worth it to treat all my clients with kindness.
I consoled myself with a thought that those nasty people must be very unhappy to treat others with such contempt.
