Will swimming fade a spray tan?
Question: i know there is already a question about swimming but if you get a spray tan can you even swim in chlorinated water without it fading or have blotches ? even if you wait a week before?
Answer: Chlorinated water will bleach a new spray tan by about 1/2 to 3/4 (depends how much chlorine there is), so imagine what it will do to a spray tan that is a week old!
I have never seen it fade in blotches though, it just looses color all over.
It is a best way to get rid of orange spray tan that I know, because it will just fade it so much faster. If you are planning to swim in chlorinated water on your holidays, I suggest different technique.
Every time you swim take a shower afterwards and then moisturize your whole body with one of those creams that has some DHA solution in it. You can do it twice for a stronger effect (scrub palms of your hands afterwards, otherwise they will be the darkest part of your body).
It will give you a glow for that day. If you swim next day, just repeat the process. It is only a half measure, but you should not deny yourself the pleasure of swimming just because of worrying about your tan.
