Depending on the skin type, a tan will last 7-12 days. Like a suntan, the sunless tan will fade gradually, as your skin exfoliates. However, you can help to extend the life of your tan by using moisturizers daily. The less expensive lotions work better, as the more expensive lotions exfoliate the skin.
Tanning can be performed every 7 days if desired. Spray tanning back to back on the same day, is not advised as it does not give the DHA time to set between tans.
