    Applying tan: easy. Removing tan?

    How easily do tanning products come off? Can you just shower with soap and water, or do you need to use baby oil or some other cleanser to get it off? I assume every product is a little different, so are some easier to remove than others?

    We always see bodybuilders applying color before a show, but we never see the struggle (if there is one) to get it off. I wonder if some guys just walk around with a bronze hue for several days after a competition.

    pro tan

    I'm two weeks from application and it's @ 80% off! lol!! I had a base tan to begin with so it does not look as bad as it could I guess. It is stubborn but that kinda worked too. The ac was down at prejudging and it did not sweat off like some of the others did.

    Loofa and soap and/or sea salt scrub helps as well.

    I usually get a deep spray tan at a tanning salon for my first application and then Jan Tana for the second before the show. Jan Tana rinses off with soap and water and leaves a nice subtle tan that looks pretty natural.. Def my favorite!

    45 min shower and a few days bro. You can get most of it off in the first shower, but not all.

    The only place I had a hard time getting the tan off was my fingernails.

    But if you do this regularly, trust me: invest in a Baiden Mitten. If a BM doesn't take it off, nothing will.

    In my experience you'll get a bunch off with your first shower, but you'll still look like you just got back from Hawaii for a few days. After day 3 or so you'll start looking splotchy in placed. Just loofah the sh_t out of yourself and it'll be off by day 7. Make sure you don't use lotion on your skin for several days prior to applying the color so that your skin absorbs it nicely.

    Yes, don't. Haha. I did that right before applying the tan and the first THREE coats literally slid right off. I had to apply two bottles of Jan Tana to finally get it to soak in.
