lotion after spray tanning?

Question: How soon after getting a spray tan can i put moisturizing lotion on my arms and legs?

Answer: It is best to wait until AFTER you've had a shower, because lotions often contain water or other liquids that could interfere with your tan and make it patchy.

That means that you have to wait few hours - as long as your spray tanning technician recommended to have a shower, and THEN you can (and you should) put a lot of lotion on to keep your skin well hydrated.

Answer: It usually is best to let the spray tan develop overnight and shower in the morning. Most moisturizing creams are fine, but if you want to be completely sure, use the one that has been specifically developed as after spray tan moisturizing cream which you should be able to buy in the spray tanning salon. There are hundreds of different brands.
