Do you wash self-tanner off or just rinse?
If you opt for a wash-off tan, allow it to develop for 4 to 8 hours. Then, wash it off with slightly cooler water than normal, and don't use scrubs or soaps as these can fade your tan. Simply rinse until the water runs clear.
Should I moisturize right after rinsing off self-tanner?
Regardless of when the colour guide is washed off, we suggest not moisturising until after the 8 hour mark.
Are you supposed to shower after self tanning?
After 8 hours, you should be fine to get in the shower or take a soak in the tub without worrying about your tan getting streaky or washing off prematurely. Self tanner tends to fade naturally on its own after a few days but shouldn't be affected by washing assuming you've allowed those initial 8 hours to pass.
How long should I wait to put clothes on after self tanning?
Once you've successfully self-tanned, wait until the products have dried completely before attempting to put on any clothes. We recommend at least 10 minutes, but keep checking any problem areas, such as under the arms or behind the knees, to see how they're drying. If you're still tacky, it's too early!
How long after a self tan can I shower?
The time you should wait before showering will depend on the type of tan you've used, or the spray tan applied. Today, there are loads of quick-developing formulas that can be washed off after as little as 2 hours (if you want a lighter tan), as well as traditional formulas designed to stay on the skin for 8 hours.
