Pre-Tan

  • Before you come in for a tan, remember to shower, shave, and exfoliate. Exfoliation is key to ensuring an even tan application.  

  • Faces tan best if they are make-up free, so be sure to remove all make-up. 

  • You may lightly moisturize the driest areas on your skin before you tan, but go easy on the lotion. Too much lotion will be a barrier for the tanning solution.

  • Bring dark, loose clothing to wear after you tan. Some of the bronzers may transfer to your clothes but it all comes out in the wash. Flip flops are recommended footwear.

  • During your tan, wear whatever makes you comfortable! Bikini's or underwear are great if you want to see a tan line, but the choice is yours. 

  • Men, we ask that you wear swim trunks for the Custom Airbrush & EXPRESS Custom Airbrush application. Dixie Tan Spa has a Zero Tolerance Policy for indecent exposure. If this occurs, Law Enforcement will be notified immediately with your information - remember, this is a family establishment.

  • Lastly, invite some friends!  Tanning is always more fun in a group.

  • We will provide everything else you need to get your beautiful tan!  If you forget any of the pre-tan steps, we will have supplies on hand to help you out.

  • Tanners under the age of 18 will require parental consent and supervision. 

Post-Tan

  • After your spray tan application, the tan may take a couple of minutes to fully dry, so feel free to lounge in your robe before changing into your dark, loose fitting clothes and sandals/flip flops. 

  • Our tanning solution smells great, so you can go about your day without that "just-tanned" smell.

  • DO NOT get wet for at least 6-8 hours, EXPRESS, 1-3 hours. This means no showering, sweating, swimming, or splashing your self with dish water. Be careful!

  • After your tan has had 6 to 8 hours to develop, you may take a shower.  For best results, we recommend waiting a full 8 to 12 hours. For expedited results, try our tanning accelerator and shower in 4-6 hours!

  • Be gentle when using a towel after showering, and remember to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!  Keeping your skin well moisturized will help prolong your tan.

  • Avoid chlorine and salt water. These will dry your skin and make your tan fade faster.

  • Now, go show everybody how good you look! Enjoy your tan for up to a week.
