Bondi Sands Is a bit on the expensive side, but for working out I love this combo! I purchased mine at Walgreens I  also purchase the Bondi Sands Tan Eraser  For any mistakes that may have happened.

Today I’m going to give you some tips and tricks to keep your tans looking nice and fresh.

Before I get deep into today’s post I just want to say that I use the Bondi Sands Self Tanner in dark or if I don’t feel like waiting for It to dry I use Bondi Sands 1 Hr. Express 

Wash it off and then I use the Bondi Sands tanning milk. I usually self -tan on an off day from working out so that way I’m not sweating too soon and that way It won’t get patched. To maintain the tan I use the tanning milk every day after my shower. It keeps my tan looking fresh and it smells delicious.

Timing Is Essential

After applying a fresh tan and while it is still developing, the tan is far more susceptible to sweat and moisture, so working out and sweating all over it will make it streaky, patchy or uneven. Ensuring you rinse your tan correctly by having a lukewarm, 45 second shower, you’ll make sure your tan comes out perfectly developing and as dark as you’d like it to be. This rinse will help to wash off any excess self-tanner while also helping to ensure it is fully set and ready for you to hit the gym without affecting it!

Always Moisture Before You Exercise

In addition to not showering during those first few hours, it is also essential that you avoid moisturizing or using lotion as this will help to strip away the spray tan and cause the color to fade. However, once you have had that initial shower, you can then resume moisturizing as normal. To avoid causing your tan to fade or streak, it is recommended that you moisturize your skin just prior to working out to help lock in the color and prevent your skin from drying out and going flaky.

Using a gradual tan moisturizing product is a great way to keep your skin hydrated and color in place.


Use Baby Powder to Catch Sweat

Baby powder works wonder for absorbing sweat. Not only is it commonly used to prevent rashes caused by excessive sweating, but it can also work to help prevent your spray tan from rubbing off. It is recommended to apply the baby powder to your armpits, the back of your knees, ankles and anywhere else that you start sweating first. The baby powder should be able to help catch some of this sweat and thus prevent the color of your tan from fading or becoming streaked.

I use a Feminine deodorant powder on the places that I sweat the most during a workout the main place being the underboobs (I Know you feel my pain)

Change Immediately After Working Out

Changing out of your sweaty clothes as soon as you’ve finished your workout should also help to prevent the sweat from causing your tan to fade or discolor. The tightness and moisture from your workout clothes can lead to weird streaks and strange patterns. Therefore, it is essential that you strip off those sweaty clothes and shower immediately.

Use the Right Tanning Product

Not all self-tan products are created equally, which means that some are far more resistant to sweat than others. For instance, MineTan Fitness Tan’s are specifically designed for those who frequently hit the gym and provides superior resistance against fading, discoloration and other sweat-related issues. How? The formula allows perspiration to pass through the tan instead of taking it off.


Your choice of self tan product will go a long way towards determining how well the color stays, so it is essential that you do your research and choose something specifically formulated for gym rats like yourself. Keeping your spray tan after a workout isn’t all that difficult. However, it does require that you are diligent and take some special precautions to keep your sweat from ruining your color. Nothing can destroy a self-tan quicker than excessive sweating. Therefore, it is important that you take the proper precautions to protect your tan prior to hitting the gym.
