    it all depends on wat kind of tanning lotions your using!! if its sun shimmer it will come off straight away

    if its something like dove or johnsons then you should be fine it will be dried in before 2hours and would be fine, it wont wash off! but you have to wait 24hrs for the colour to come out!

    you should put on the lotion about 15 to 20 minutes before getting wet,that way it doesn't wear of and wash off when you jump in!

    Most bottles say on the back in the Teeny-tiny Directions print. I usually wait 10 minutes.
