How Long Does A Spray Tan Last?
Using self-tanners typically lasts 5 to 7 days. A professional application will last longer because there is a higher percentage of DHA used. When applying at-home solutions you may only get 3 to 5 days.
Your skin’s natural exfoliation also impacts the longevity of your sunless tan. The turnover rate is different for everyone but you will see your sunless tan start to fade after 4 to 5 days.
Good skin care before and after sunless tanning can also increase the time your tan will last. Exfoliation prior to your session and keeping your skin moisturized afterwards are fundamental. Tan extending products are also available which also hydrate and even maintain a natural-looking color longer.
Is Self Tanner Safe?
Dihydroxyacetone (better known as DHA) is a sugar that is harmless and colorless that interacts with the amino acids in skin cells on the surface of the skin. This interaction provides a temporary tan until the skin naturally sheds the cells that have been colored. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has allowed DHA for external application to the skin.
