when to shower after a spray tan?

Question: I had a spray tan done in a salon yesterday, it has fully developed now, can I shower without washing it off, as it does look a bit dark now. Thanks.

Answer: Yes, absolutely. Spray tan that has been on overnight is fully developed(it needs only about 5 hours to do it properly) and you SHOULD shower.

When you do shower, about 1/2 of the color will wash away. That is because it is only a bronzer that has been sitting on top of your skin to give you some color, it was never meant to be there long term. What you will be left with is the color that your skin has developed underneath the bronzer, and it should look pretty natural.
