Spray tanning allows you to achieve a gorgeous and healthy glow without hours spent laying out by the pool. However, if you want a perfectly smooth and even sun-kissed look, your skin needs to start as a fresh slate. Below, you’ll find a helpful guide on how to successfully remove your old spray tan before getting a new one.

How to Remove Your Spray Tan in 4 Easy Steps

1. Bathe

Run a warm bath with essential oils and sea salt, and soak in it for about 15-30 minutes. Use a loofah or washcloth to gently wipe the remnants of your last spray tan off your skin. Alternatively, take a dip in a swimming pool—the chlorine will help to dissolve the tanning solution, which you can rinse off afterward. 

2. Exfoliate

Use a non-abrasive exfoliating product to break down any stubborn buildups of tanning solution on your skin. Make the process quicker and easier by wearing exfoliating gloves and massaging your skin in circular motions.

3. Spot-Treat

4. Moisturize

Though moisturizing will not remove your tan, it’s essential to rehydrate your skin after bathing, exfoliating, and spot treating. Your new tan will blend much more evenly and beautifully after you apply an oil-free moisturizer to particularly dry areas, such as the elbows, knees, and hands.
