How long does a tan last?
How long does a tan last is actually an individual issues. Some people can enjoy a dark tan from spring till late autumn. But in most cases, it’s much shorter than that. It all depends on your complexion, skin properties, body care, and how you got your tan in the first place. If your dark tan is an effect of:
- sun – it will usually disappear after four or five weeks, a lot depends on your complexion and after sun care;
- tanning lotion – it will usually disappear after a few days, and last longer when you take proper care of it with after sun balms and lotions - this can make it last for over a week;
- tanning salon – if you are treating yourself to regular, weekly tan salon sessions, your tan should last for a month from your last visit;
- spray tanning – it will last for about two weeks, but repeating the treatment in the meantime will make it last longer.
