Post tanning tips for a long lasting glow

After your tan

There are plenty of things that you can do at home to increase the longevity of your spray tan or self tan. With the right aftercare, you can expect your tan to last 5-7 days.


  • Go to the gym or get wet during the development period. No washing up!

  • Wear tight clothes – as these will rub your tan off and lead to a patchy developed tan

  • Rub your skin after washing the guide colour off, pat dry instead to help your tan last longer

  • Wear white! Although the tan will come off in the washing machine, it could leave a mark on sensitive materials

  • Use skincare/body products in the development time. Perfumes and chemicals can react with the tan, causing it to turn green


  • Shower after eight hours to reveal your gorgeous developed colour*

  • Stay in the shower until the water runs clear, if there is any guide colour left on your skin it will rub off onto your clothes

  • Moisturise daily to enhance and prolong your tan

  • Start to exfoliate after 4 days to encourage an even wear off

  • Remember to use SPF – a fake tan won’t protect your skin from harmful rays

*If you’re using the Gradual Glowing Self Tan, you will not need to wash off as there is no guide colour.
