Maintaining your Tan
 
To maintain your tan make sure that your skin is always moisturized. Your tan can last from 7 to 10 days.  Using the wrong products can fade your tan faster. 
 
Here is a list of commonly used body care products that can have a detrimental effect on a spray tan. This is not all-inclusive. Not everyone will have a problem with these items. This is only a guide.
 
The following products can lighten or make a sunless tan blotchy:
 
  • a women’s tan may develop differently during various hormonal changes (ovulation,menstruation, pregnancy) It may be streaky, patchy, fade worse, or produce lighter or no color.
  • AHA products (Alpha Hydroxy Acids -Glycolic, Lactic, Malic, Citric and Tartaric acids)
  • Anti-acne products that exfoliate, or dry the skin- Accutane, and Salicylic acid, can affect tan fading. Skin also peels, which can look unacceptable, especially with a tan. Antibiotics or other medications that affect your skin, can also affect your tan.
  • Anti-aging products that "renew" "refresh" or otherwise exfoliate skin,
  • Band-Aid or adhesive tape applied to skin will pull the "tan" off
  • Bar soaps, especially deodorant, or antibacterial varieties
  • BHA Products (Beta Hydroxy Acids-salicylic acid)
  • Body hair bleach products will bleach the tan, non bleach skin lighteners are fine
  • Bore type adhesive facial strips, or “peel-off” masks
  • Bug spray, perfumes, body sprays when sprayed directly onto skin, can remove or fade the tan. Instead, spray clothing, or spray a "cloud" of spray that you can walk through, instead of directly onto skin.
  • Dove soap, and Dove Shower gel, Curel lotions will fade a tan faster, on some people.
  • Facial masks and exfoliating scrubs
  • Hair Inhibiting Lotions (Jergens etc.) tend to make a sunless tan yellow.
  • If you exercise and sweat heavily your tan can fade faster, especially in body fold areas. (arm bends, knee bends, between breasts etc.)
