Spray Tan FAQs
How many days will my sunless tan last?
On average, self tanners last 4-7 days.
The “life span” of a sunless tan also depends on your skin’s natural exfoliation. The faster your skin turns over, the faster the sunless tan will fade. 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 exfoliate.
Following a good skin care regimen before and after sunless tanning will help a sunless tan last longer. Exfoliating prior to a sunless tanning application and keeping skin moisturized afterwards are essential. Sunless tan-extending products with a light self-tanning bronzer, like Norvell Pro-long tan extending lotion, help hydrate skin and maintain even, natural-looking color longer.
Can I shower, swim, or work out with my sunless tan?
Of course! But be sure to wait at least 4 hours to allow the formula to react with your skin’s amino acids and proteins. In fact, the longer you allow the solution to remain on your skin, the longer lasting your tan will be. Finally, swimming in highly chlorinated water will significantly reduce your results.
Will the Sunless Solution stain my clothes?
The Norvell Sunless cosmetic tint formula is completely water soluble. Users may notice some initial cosmetic color on the inside of their clothing, but this color will wash out in cold water.
Why is it important to keep my skin moisturized for sunless tanning?
It is important to keep skin moisturized after sunless tanning as dry, flaky skin will slough off faster and color will fade sooner. You basically want to slow down your body’s natural exfoliation process.
Sunless tan-extending products with a light self-tanning bronzer, like Norvell Amber Sun Pro-long, help hydrate skin and maintain even, natural-looking color longer by providing subtle bronzers.
