When can a person shower in relation to a tan, before or after, and how much time should a person wait between showering and tanning?

There is no problem with showering just prior to tanning because it clears the skin of any potential barriers that might hinder the tan. Applying a tanning lotion right after a shower will help the lotion absorb more readily into the skin and prepare it for the tan. The exception is with lotions that make your skin heat up and “tingle”—proximity to the tanning session time is a little more critical with those lotions. Ideally, a person should probably wait a few hours after tanning to shower. The reason: Skin takes a while to process the light that it has received into a tan. Taking a shower right after a tan will not eliminate the tan altogether, but it will minimize the total impact of your individual session.
