Soaps/Body Washes
After Your Spray Tan

Now, let's get down to the details. You want to use a product that won't affect the tan or your skin, and will allow your tan to last as long as it can!  Generally, a spray tan should last about 7-10 days, although those times will vary depending on a number of factors.

Ideally, you want to use a product that is as natural as possible and has very few ingredients.  Also, it shouldn't contain any harsh ingredients, such as mineral oil, that will negatively affect your tan. Soaps or body washes with moisturizing ingredients are also a plus, because moist skin will help to keep the spray tan on longer, and make the color more natural and darker (in most cases).

Below, we listed our three favorite products that are easily accessible, and available for purchase on Amazon and Walmart.  Even better, all are great for your skin and affordable.  We'll go into detail about each product below:

 1. Aveeno Active Naturals Body Wash

This is a great body wash because it truly helps to keep the skin soft and moisturized after a shower, which is ideal for a spray tan.  In order for a tan to last longer and look more natural, we need to keep our skin refreshed and moisturized.  This body wash does just that.
