You should make sure not to shower for 8-12 hours after your session in the spray tanning booth. In addition to this, you should try not to work out or participate in any activities that will result in excessive sweating. You may also want to limit your time spent swimming as the chlorine in pools and salt water in the ocean may dry your skin and cause your tan to fade. Don't worry if you see some color washing off after your first shower. This is normal and it is only the cosmetic bronzer that is washing off. Don't rub your skin with a towel after showering; pat it dry instead.
