It is usually best you wait for as long as 24 hours before you wear jeans after a Spray tan. Once you apply spray tan, you are supposed to stay away from anything tight for at least 24 hours before you wear anything.
You have to do this so that the spray tan can have a good outcome. When next you apply spray tan you should wait for 24 hours after you applied the spray tan before you wear anything.
This is not only applicable to jeans, it is also applicable to sleepwear. If you are wondering why you need to stay that long I will explain it in the next segment.
Why stay that long?
There are a few reasons why you need to wait for 24 hours before you wear jeans, that is exactly what I will explain here. Care to know? Read on:
- To prevent indentation and streaks
- To give the tan time to take effect
To prevent indentation and streaks
This is an important reason why you need to wait for 24 hours before you wear tight clothing.
When you apply tan, it still stays on your body for a couple of hours and if you wear clothing that touches the tan it creates friction that could leave some sort of indentation on the tan.
You definitely would not want this to happen to you.
To give the tan time to take effect
When you apply spray tan you need to give it time for it to take full effect. If not, you might as well ruin the spray tan you just applied.
You need to wait for about 24 hours so that the spray tan can take effect. Wearing clothes shortly after you apply the spray tan can ruin it. That is why 24 hours is the ideal time you need to wait before you wear jeans or anything tight.
Can I wear jeans 4 hours after a spray tan?
No, I would not advise that you wear jeans 4 hours after spray tan. You will not always like the outcome and it may end up causing the spray tan to not have any effect or it will not work as it was supposed to.
Even though some people wear jeans about 4 hours after a spray tan, I still do not advise you to do the same.
Many of them usually regret doing that because of the effect that the jeans would have on the spray tan.
It can cause friction when the jeans get in contact with the spray tan which has just been applied on your skin and this would not make the spray time work to its full potential.
If you know full well that you are not ready to deal with the ramifications that come when you wear your jeans 4 hours after applying spray tan, you should just wait for 24 hours before you wear jeans or any other clothing that may be right for you.
Personally, I would wait for 24 hours so that the spray tan can work at its best.
What should you not wear after spraying Tan?
It would not make sense for me to tell you not to wear jeans 24 hours after a spray tan and not show you what you should wear or what you should not wear. However, I will show you what you should not wear after a spray tan for your own safety.
Here are the various clothes that you should not wear after a spray tan:
- Jeans and Plants
- Tight bras for women
Jeans and Pants
This was the first thing I mentioned. If you are the type that loves to wear jeans, after making use of spray tan you need to stay away from jeans and any other pants that you may cause the Spray tan to not work effectively.
Jeans tend to either be tight or rub against your skin which would cause friction and an uncomfortable feeling on your skin.
You are actually supposed to avoid anything tight when you apply a spray tan. Tight bras are inclusive, as a woman when you are done applying spray tan, you should not make use of tight bras at all.
Wearing tight bras could result in your spray tan getting ruined or irritation on your skin which will make you uncomfortable.
When you wear shoes too soon after you apply Spray tan, you will notice that it can cause things like lines or even indentation and I am pretty sure you would not like how uncomfortable you will feel while wearing these.
Does spray tan look better after bathing?
After applying tan you will notice that when you are done taking your bath, there is an improved glow that you start to see on your skin.
You will see that the bronzer starts to wash out a bit after you are done bathing which makes you look tanned and glowing as well. This is one good thing that bathing does when you have applied spray tan.
Even after bathing, you may not see the glowing effect immediately, however, tan will continue to develop even after taking your bath. You will begin to see changes.
That is why you need to be patient a bit until you start to see results so that you do not panic or conclude that there is no effect on the bathing after the spray tan.
Do’s and dont’s after spray tan
When you want to make use of a particular item, there is usually a guide that keeps you on the right path of what exactly you are to do and what not to do.
It is usually good you are aware of what to do and what not to do so that you do not end up making a costly mistake that would have been avoided only if you took your time to go through the do’s and dont’s of Spray Tan.
Take a look at the do’s and dont’s of Spray Tan:
- Do wear loose clothing
- Do take a bath and exfoliate a day before Spray Tan
- Do not apply any moisturizer even after bathing
- Do not get sweaty after Spray Tan
Do wear loose clothing
I have been emphasizing this since the beginning of this article, you are not to wear any sort of loose clothing each time you spray tan.
When the right clothing gets in contact with the Spray tan it causes friction which would make you so uncomfortable all day long.
If you want to wear something tight, the best thing for you to do is to wait 24 hours after the spray tan, then you can go ahead to take your bath, look good and wear your tight clothes.
As long as you have given the spray tan enough time to take effect, the right clothes won’t be an issue anymore.
Do take a bath and exfoliate a day before Spray Tan
This is an important thing you need to do a day before your spray tan. This helps to keep your skin clean from any form of dirt or oily skin that would prevent the Spray tan from having a good effect.
When you want to make use of the spray tan, it has to be applied directly on the body for a faster effect. If it happens that there is dirt on your skin you would need to exfoliate.
Do not apply any moisturizer even after bathing
When you take the bath before applying Spray Tan and you’re smelling all good, you may think you need to apply moisturizer, but you do not need to.
This is an important thing you also need to know of. Applying moisturizer to your skin will reduce the rate at which the Spray tan will work effectively.
This is because what the moisturizer does is that it acts as a barrier between your skin and the Spray tan, making it not to be as effective as it is supposed to be.
Do not get sweaty after using Spray Tan
People do this but it is not right. When you are done applying the spray tan, you should try to avoid the gym or anything that would make you so sweaty. It will reduce the effect that the spray tan has, which may likely not work as it should.
The best way to go about it is to wait for 24 hours before you can wear jeans especially after you just used spray tan. If you want to wear clothing, the type you should wear loose clothing.
Avoid any type of tight clothes that would cause the spray tan to now be as effective as it should. A lot of people who make use of spray tan usually make this mistake.
I also explained some do’s and dont’s of after spray tan, if you want maximum effect of the spray tan, you should adhere to the do’s and dont’s, it will help you get a better result.
