Your recommended shower time depends on which solution you choose. Do not get wet or sweat until your first shower. This allows the solution to interact with your skin and “set in”. After waiting the allotted time, you are free to shower. Now when you shower you will see the “instant” bronzers wash off and when you get out; you will look amazing! Only use your hands and soap for the duration of the spray tan to help the spray last longer. Each time you get out of the shower PAT DRY and keep lotion on to help your spray last longer.
