What to Know Before You Glow

Preparing for your spray tan is very important. As one of the best spots in town, Magnolia Sun Tanning educates our clients on the best pre-tan practices, as well as tips, tricks & products to protect your tan and make it last longer.

Prior to Tanning

  • Shower, shave & EXFOLIATE at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.

  •  Do not use bar soaps, especially Dove products.

  • Do not apply lotion, deodorant or perfume prior to your session. Little to no make-up is preferable. 

  •  Manicures, pedicures, facials and waxing should be completed at least 24 hours in advance.

  • Wear dark, loose clothing to your appointment, and remove all jewelry before your session begins.

Maintaining Your Tan

  • Do not sweat or shower for 8 hours following your session. *Rinse time will vary for Rapid tans.

  • Avoid bar soaps, Dove products, exfoliates, loofahs and abrasives, as these products will make your tan fade more quickly.

  • Spa treatments, swimming pools and hot tubs are not recommended, as these practices act as exfoliators and can strip your tan.

  • MOISTURIZE at least twice per day. Use the recommended aftercare products to lengthen the life of your tan.
