A bath won’t ruin your tan. Melanin isn’t something that can be washed away in the tub. That being said, if you use a strong exfoliant or soften your skin to encourage it to peel, then that could make your tan fade. That’s because when you get a tan, your skin produces lots of melanin in its topmost layers; if those layers of skin are removed, then the melanin goes with them.
