How to Get Rid of the Spray Tan Smell

Updated February 21, 2017

A spray tan can help you achieve a beautiful, natural-looking tan without the damaging effects of tanning beds or spending hours in the sun. For many people, spray tanning has become a regular part of their beauty routines. However, sometimes the smell of spray tanning isn't quite as welcome as the look it creates. Luckily, there are a few quick, easy steps you can take to eliminate the spray tan smell from your skin.

  1. Smell the different spray tan lotion options and decide which scent is the mildest. Using a milder scent for your spray tan will make it easier to get rid of the smell afterward.

  2. Wash your skin with a strong-smelling bath or shower gel. This helps get rid of a spay tan smell better than bar soap. Try out multiple scents to find the one that most effectively gets rid of the spray tan smell.

  3. Use a nylon mesh ball to cleanse your body in the shower. A nylon mesh ball will produce more suds than a wash cloth, and it will cleanse your skin thoroughly with the scented bath gel.

  4. Moisturise your skin with a strong-smelling moisturiser after you shower. The scent of your moisturiser will help get rid of the spray tan smell.
