If you put accelerator on, you should wait about a few hours. When I go tanning, I take a shower that morning, go tan sometime during the day, and wait to shower the next morning.

Should you shower before or after tanning in a tanning bed?

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.

Should you wait 6 to 7 hours to shower after you tan in a tanning bed?

This is just my personal opinion. I usually tan after I take a shower because I feel like when I shave my legs after tanning that I'm shaving the tan off. I use a lotion that smells good after tanning and the salon I go to has deodorant in the rooms that I use when I get out. I also feel like a get a better tan because the shower opens my pores.

How long do you wait to take a shower after you spray tan?

Personally i'd wait atleast up to 4 hours to let the bronzer set in. I have taken a shower an hour after using a lotion with a bronzer and it completely washed off.

How long after tanning can you bath?

If you have been tanning with a basic accelerator or intensifier then you can bath immediately after tanning without hindering your tanning results. If you have been tanning with a lotion containing tingle then it is recommended you wait at least a few hours after exposure. A shower can actually increase the tingle sensation to an uncomfortable level. Finally if you are tanning with a product containing bronzers or a color guide then it is recommended that you wait about 4 hours before bathing. DHA bronzers are continuing to work and bathing can halt the process.

How long do you have to wait to go tanning after navel piercing?

It is best to wait 1 month after getting any piercing to go tanning. Tanning affects the texture of your skin and virtually dries it out. With a fresh piercing, this can be highly irritating.
