How long will a spray tan last?
The tan typically lasts 5 to 7 days (or up to 10 days when using Aviva Labs Tan-Extending Skincare products). The faster your skin cells turn over and shed from your body, the faster the sunless tan fades. The tan created by the DHA affects only the top layer of the skin and will begin to fade after 4 to 5 days as the skin naturally begins to shed. To get the longest life from a spray tan, it is crucial to exfoliate prior to the spray tan application and to moisturize daily after the application. See Before & After Photos
How should I prepare for my spray tan?
Exfoliation prior to having a spray tan is vital, as it means you are removing all the loose dead skin cells so the DHA will adhere to your skin better and the tan will then also last longer. This also reduces the likelihood of a tan becoming patchy as it fades due to the fact you are starting with an even surface. Unfortunately, many exfoliators contain moisturizers or oils that act as a barrier and prevent the DHA from adhering to your skin. It is important that you use an exfoliator that has been specifically designed for use in the sunless tanning process.
Post Tanning Instructions
Do not shower until 8 hours after the spray tan has been applied. If you need to shower prior to the minimum 8 hour requirement, ask your esthetician about using Aviva's Rapid Solutions. Aviva Inspires Express Tan allows our clients to shower after 4 hours for a light tan, 5 hours for a medium tan, or 6 hours for a dark tan. When using Aviva's City Tan Collection, our clients may shower after 30 minutes for a light tan, 60 minutes for a medium tan, or 90 minutes for a dark tan. Because a DHA tan takes 8 hours to completely develop it is important to shower only with water for the first shower after a spray tan. This may sound "yucky", but it will prevent the spray tan from being removed prematurely. We also advise our clients to avoid heavy exfoliation in the shower (scrubs, loofahs, excessive rubbing) in order to prolong the longevity of the tan. Use a washcloth or hands to lather and dispense soap over the body for daily showers, so as not to scrub off the tan. Finally, moisturize daily after a spray tan. Moisturizing the skin extends the tan up to 3 days because it slows down the skin's shedding process
