i've had a client ask me today if its ok to go swimming in the morning and then have a spray tan late afternoon? will this affect the tan? surely if she has a good shower and uses a plain (non moisturising) shower gel she will be ok?

I think its fine that you can swim before a spray tan, as long as your client follows the correct prep before her tan. :)

i wouldn't think it would be a good idea .
i'd say the chlorine could affect the tan.
it is very drying and other chemicals in the pool could affect the colour .

that could be nonsense but i would err on the side of caution .

also from an insurance stance i think it is usually contra indicated within 24 hours either side of the application.

If deodorant, perfumes and other body products affect tans, I'm going to go with chlorine not making it look too hot/easy application. Although that's purely my opinion x

I went swimming Saturday morning and had a tan that evening obviously I showered a good few hours before and used simple shower gel but it was fine, I did wonder what it would turn out like though. I don't know if it would be the same for everyone x

thank you so much geeks! glad i had some people who have tested it out comment, i too thought of how harsh the chemicals are and maybe would need a few washes to get them off, its a toughy, i might say no for now and test it out myself too! because sometimes telling clients to have a really good shower means nothing and they'll just splash abit of water on themselves, maybe abit of shower gel :lol: thanks again for so many replies
