The minimum time is 30 minutes, If you have used a bronzer you will want to wait 1-2 hours so the bronzer has the full time to develop on your skin. Otherwise you risk washing the bronzer off too soon and not getting the results that you wanted.

Generally it is always best to shower before you tan. First of all this increases oxygenation of the skin and it takes UVA + UVB + oxygen to tan. Second, lotion absorbs better just after you shower. Finally, if you are using a product with DHA bronzers in it then it is important that you wait between 2 to 4 hours after tanning before you shower or else you lose some of the color you were headed for. Hope that helps.
