  • I'm assuming it's a spray tan by the way you're describing?? Spray tans do wear off, so yes you have to go have it reapplied. If it's a regular tan, like in a tanning bed, then you have to keep up the exposure to either the lights in the bed or the sun to keep the color.

  • I think thats how long they are supposed to last, 3 or 4 weeks. Remember to exfoliate before get a spray tan. You may want to try some lotion products that have a hint of bronzer in it to keep you more "golden".

  • Yes with a spray tan,it only lasts 4 weeks or so. You hae to go back. Tanning bed,once you get the brown you want,maintenance is once a week or twice,tops.

  • if your doing the tanning bed, i know they're expensive, but use the tanning lotion they sell. They REALLY help you tan better & help the tan last longer.
