A typical spray tan will last about 14 days, but this length may vary (and depends on a variety of factors). Your spray tan will last longest if you get a darker tan —, just make sure you avoid exfoliating and use lotion regularly.
Make sure that you shower, exfoliate and shave prior to your spray tan. You will also need to remove all lotions, perfume, deodorant and makeup prior to your spray tan appointment. Don’t forget to bring loose clothes to wear after your appointment.
Avoid using water or exfoliating immediately post-spray tan in order to maximize its longevity. You can use lotion after you finally shower, but avoid any lotions with alcohol, as they may remove your fresh golden glow. If you have splotches of tan on your hands or feet, try using one of the methods listed below to remove.
If you need to get spray tan off your hands, try using baby oil, purchase a tan remover or exfoliate. You can also use steam to remove spray tan from your hands.
A spray tan will cost between $40 and $120 depending on your location and the number of layers you request from the tan.
