How long does the tan fade for? On a smooth and well-maintained skin the brown shade lasts up to two weeks. People who have dark complexion and black or brown hair, will be able to enjoy the tan longer than blondes. It is said that tan fades after about 30 days. During this time, the skin peels off and renews itself. If you want to get rid of it faster, perform a thorough skin exfoliation process about three times a week.
