Why Does My Spray Tan Last Longer Than My Self Tan?

There’s a few reasons why your spray tan lasts longer than your self tanner: Professional solutions are made with higher quality ingredients, they’re applied at a distance so they don’t over-penetrate (thus, dry out) the skin, and finally, your spray tan artist likely uses a drying powder that helps lock in your tan and prevents transfer while it’s developing.

For the first two reasons, we recommend checking out our reviews of the best professional spray tan solutions, and for the third: you need to get your hands on Bronze Palms After Glow Drying Powder. The newly-launched drying powder is designed to leave the skin feeling dry and non-sticky immediately after a spray tan (or self tanner application!) It’s formulated with ethically-sourced mica and without parabens, sulfates, talc, and other harsh chemicals so it can be safely applied to any skin type to leave a gorgeous, lightweight sheen that smells like a fresh, milky coconut.

The powder was created by Campbell, California-based sunless salon owner, expert, and owner of Bronze Palms (@bronzepalms), Emily Scott. Emily has done custom spray tans on thousands of bodies so not only does she know how to get a spray tan to last, but she also knows what the non-negotiables are when it comes to drying powders. For drying powders to be effective they must be lightweight, quickly sink into the skin, be gentle enough for all skin types, and be finely-milled but not too fine to where they create a mess for artists.
