About Rapid Tanning Solution For Your Spray Tan With Viva La Bronze

Quick and Convenient

Our Viva La Bronze rapid tanning solution is designed for those who want to achieve their tan quickly and efficiently. Here’s how it works:

  • Timing: This solution requires a short wear time of 2-5 hours, depending on the depth of color you want:
    • 2 hours for a light tan
    • 2.5 hours for a light-medium tan
    • 3 hours for a medium tan
    • 3.5 hours for a medium-dark tan
    • 4 hours for a dark tan
    • 4.5 hours for an extra dark tan
    • 5 hours for an ultra-dark tan


  • Speed: If you’re pressed for time, the rapid solution is ideal. You can rinse off within a few hours and get on with your day. Note that this is a rapid rinse not a rapid development. Your tan will still be developing for the next 24 hours after the time of application.
  • Convenience: For clients who worry about smudging or messing up their tan, this quick rinse time reduces the risk of errors.
  • Flexibility: Great for busy schedules, allowing you to plan your tan around your day, rather than dedicating an entire night.

Important Considerations:

  • Precision: Timing is crucial with the rapid tanning solution. To get your desired color, you must rinse off exactly at the designated time. For example, if you want a light tan, you must rinse off at the 2-hour mark. Rinsing off at 4 hours will result in a much darker tan.

Classic and Hydrating

The regular 8-hour tanning solution is perfect for those who prefer a more relaxed approach to tanning. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Timing: This solution needs to be worn for a minimum of 8 hours before rinsing off. It won’t develop any further after wearing for 8 hours, it can also be worn for longer with out the stress of getting darker than you want to be.


  • Ease of Use: Many clients prefer this option because they can get sprayed hang out at home and rinse off anywhere from 8 to 14 hours after application of the spray tan. Many clients like to go to bed and rinse when they get up the next morning.
  • Flexibility: There’s no need to worry about the exact timing. As long as you wear it for at least 8 hours, you can rinse off anytime after, even up to 12-14 hours, without the risk of over-developing and being darker than you want to be.
  • Moisturizing: This solution is slightly more moisturizing & hydrating than the rapid solution, making it better suited for clients with dry skin.

Important Considerations:

  • Overnight Application: While convenient for many, wearing the tan overnight may not suit everyone’s lifestyle, especially if you prefer not to sleep with the tanning solution on.
