Be sure to wear dark, loose clothing after you tan to preent any wrinkles or creases that will effect the final finish.
How long will a sunless tan last?
Your spray tan and/or self tanner will last usually 5-7 days when you have followed the post-tan instructions as suggested.

Be careful if you soak in hot tubs, pools and any form of liquid with chemicals or the temperature is hot becuase these will fade your tan within a few days.

7. Shower in 8 hours with warm water, no soap and pat dry with towel. Begin to moisturize with sunless tanning approved body butters.
8. Start enjoying that tan! It will continue to darken in color over next 24-48 hours.
9. Repeat as often as you would like.
