Salon spray tan?

I'm going on holiday next month and am very pale. Was thinking of getting a fake bake spray tan (never had one before), but then someone said that salt water will strip it off. Is this true?

I don't want to spend money on something that will go on the first day, especially if it goes in a streaky fashion.

I've heard they only last a few days or so, salt water or not.

Ime, it will last around a week...I have had st tropez ones and gone on hols, they have lasted for the time needed..I tend to "top up" with a tan maximister/after sun and remember to exfoliate esp while away. Allows the old tan to be blended in better and allow for your skin to tan naturally iykiwm.

I have never heard or experienced it being removed my salt water and imo the exposure you get in salt water will be minimal.
Chlorene will/may remove it slightly but not such that you would notice.

I love 'em. I have the St Tropez one when I'm going on holiday, but doesn't last more than about 4-5 days, so I bring a tube with me and top up.

I had one ages ago and it only lasted 4 days, but I sweat like a monster, and a less sweaty travelling companion's spray tan was still going strong a week later
