SPRAY TAN TIPS
24-48 hours prior to session
to remove dirt and oils from body. Feel free to wash your hair during this time as well, because it is not recommended to use soap or shampoo for 24 hours after your spray tan.
we suggest doing this prior to your session in order to prevent having to do it after. Shaving will always remove color from the applied area, so the longer you can hold off the better. Avoid using razors with moisture strips to reduce residue that can block the spray.
be sure to remove any dead skin or residual spray tan prior to your session. Doing so will increase the life of your tan and produce flawless results. Failure to do so could lead to a short lived spray tan and uneven fade.
Do not put on any lotion, make-up or deodorant prior to your session. These products will block the spray tan and interfere with your results. If you do come in with product on your body, ask for a cleansing mitt so you can remove the product off before you spray.to remove dirt and oils from body. Feel free to wash your hair during this time as well, because it is not recommended to use soap or shampoo for 24 hours after your spray tan.
Feel free to wear whatever you’re comfortable in for your spray tan session. If you would like disposable undergarments please ask. After your session be sure to change into loose clothing that will not rub or disturb your fresh spray tan.
Keep an eye on the weather the day of your spray tan. If it looks like rain bring an umbrella, long sleeve shirt, sweatpants, and closed toed shoes. Remember you cannot get wet or sweat while your spray tan is processing. If you happen to get wet please give us a call right away so we can assist you.
Once your processing time has concluded you can rinse off in the shower using warm water only. Take your hands and using a circular motion wash off your body till the water runs clear. Do not use soap or harsh materials on the first rinse. After please dab dry with a towel.
Apply religiously after your rinse and in the days that follow. This is key to maintaining your spray tan and a clean fade. Using the right kind of moisturizer is just as important. Please stay away from heavily scented, low-grade lotions containing Mineral Oil. Ask about our Professional Tanning Products and get 25% off our tan-extenders.
Water and physical activity are allowed after your first rinse. Keep in mind that your tan will not last as long if you are swimming and engaging in physical activity on a regular basis. To help with that we recommend a self-tanner to help with the up-keep of certain areas.
Ask us about our Profesional Self-Tanners.
You can achieve a tan without tanning lotion, but why would you do that to your skin? When you tan you are depleting your skin of moisture and vitamins, which speeds up the aging process. Tanning lotion contains high-quality bronzing and skin-care ingredients that not only allow you to tan faster, but they will help you maintain the integrity of your skin!
We cannot emphasize this enough! As a tanner you shed your skin twice a month meaning your tan will fade a lot easier. Using the right kind of lotion is key. Stay away from heavily perfumed products and cheap drug-store lotions. Ask about our professional moisturizers made and tailored for a tanners skin. Moisturizing religiously will give you a healthy looking glow!
Moderation is key. Tanning 2-3 times a week is sufficient enough to achieve and maintain your tan. Working your way up to full time and building color slowly is the smart way to tan, so make sure you give yourself enough time to build before your event. Keep building color by switching up your exposure and lotions to avoid tanning plateaus. Please note that we do not allow clients to tan on top of a sunburn.

The staff is amazing, I've been going for years and never had a problem, beds are clean & well kept!
Came to this place just to try it out since a friend loved it….had me sold after the first tan! Love the beds they’re so nice and fancy, I’m not used to that! I really enjoy the bed with red light therapy, I have bad knees and other issues that the light actually helps (which I was skeptical of)! The girls up front are so sweet and knowledgeable. The whole place is inviting and I’m so glad I started coming there. I come there to escape and relax and I love it.
Wow! From the first call and conversation with Ashley, I felt welcomed and actually excited to go to this establishment. Then when I arrived, I was greeted by Grace. She made me feel very comfortable and explained everything in great detail. Coming from someone who works in customer service, and owns her own business, I am extremely appreciative when I receive great customer service with a friendly attitude. She was very knowledgeable and great at multitasking on such a busy day. I highly recommend this place. I also love their membership fee is very reasonable. And they include tanning beds and booth sprays in the membership that I got.
Amazing customer service! Very clean
I love this business. It’s always clean and amazingly friendly. Would highly recommend it to anyone.😄
Wonderful people with a great environment to feel comfortable while getting some nice color!
I love LivTan! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Moriah and Ashlyn helped answer all my questions and walk me through step-by-step on what to do. The beds are super clean and I leave glowing like a goddess.
I love LivTan! All the staff is so sweet and always happy. It’s such a good and positive environment! It’s so clean, the atmosphere is so pretty, and always decorated so nice and for holidays too! The beds work so good, I never leave there disappointed in my tan.
I had a self tanner fiasco and Stephany came to the rescue! She got me in quickly and worked her spray tan magic as I had an event that day where I had to be in a bathing suit. If it wasn't for her, I would have been sabotaged. I love the professionalism and understanding that I encountered at Liv Tan and will def be back again this summer!
Steph is amazing!! She took her time and was very detailed with my tan and it came out perfectly. I would 100% recommend this business to anyone looking to get a tan and for the first timers who are nervous about getting one!
Liv tan was my first spray tan experience. I decided to get one for prom this year and I am really happy I did. The owner is super sweet and was helpful with every part of the process. All of the employees made me feel more at ease about getting the tan and it was a super quick. The tan lasted for longer than I thought it would and looked amazing!! 100% recommend
Great place to tan and I’ve been coming for three years. This place is the best in Lakeland and I recommend for tanning and spray tanning!
Great beds and great staff!!
Kindest staff great service
I’ve been here for a while now and they recently updated their stand-up tanning bed which I find gives me a lot of color and I get in pretty quickly all the time. I recently pulled something lifting at the gym and a staff member recommended I try their red light therapy. I’d never heard of it, but I tried it and it helped my muscle aches and I was back to working out like normal after a few session. I highly recommend them and their prices are very competitive.
I had the best experience at Liv Tan! Steph was so sweet and cared about my preferences (how dark I like to be, formula, color, etc…) which is super important to me! I have referred her to so many friends and they have also had great experiences with her and her employees as well! 10/10🏽💗
Love the staff and the tanning beds are amazing!!
I chose this place due to its proximity to my house, but even over time as other places have become more convenient in location, I will continue to give Liv Tan my business. Their services are amazing and priced perfectly! Their staff is kind and professional and make it their goal to know your name and preferences. When I walk in they just know what bed I want and make it a point to follow-up on prior discussions we’ve had, kids and life. I’ve witnessed multiple spray tan clients call or come back in to sing their praises and thank you’s for a wonderful experience. If you’re looking for tanning, permanent jewelry or the Poly red light therapy (it’s done wonders on my skin) you can stop your search here!!
I have naturally tan skin(am mixed) but wanted to be bronzed and glowey for my wedding day and Liv Tan did such an amazing job!! I’ve never felt more confident and comfortable and the staff and team made sure to find the perfect match for my skin tone. It was also my first time tanning and the team made sure I knew how to take care of the tan after the spray as well. I got sprayed Wednesday and married Friday and I loved the way I looked on my wedding day…will be coming back again :))
Love the atmosphere here! After a morning of fishing it was the perfect place to go. Everything my boyfriend and I have ordered is over the top delicious. Bartender, wait staff, as well as the cook were so accommodating and genuinely cool people to be around.
Stephanie is amazing! Got my first spray tan with her, walked me through the process and made me feel super comfortable. I’m loving my results !! My skin is glowing 😍✨
Grace was fantastic and I felt completely comfortable getting a spray tan. Very clean and professional. Will be back.
This place is my zen! It's clean, all the girls are so friendly and knowledgeable and it smells amazing in there! It's a one stop shop, red light therapy for skin, sun beds for tan and teeth can be whitened while tanning. Having a membership makes all of these options affordable. Love. This. Place.
Absolutely love love love! My tan lasted longer than a week. Everyone was extremely kind and helpful too! I will most definitely be back there!
I love Liv Tan!! The girls working are always so nice and helpful and it’s very clean and cute inside! I have to specifically give kudos to Grace 🙂 She’s got so much knowledge and she’s kind and helpful. The beds are definitely the best around and the spray booth too. Worth the money!! 100 stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️
i love it here!!! every spray i’ve had has been perfect and natural! i’m a big fan of the airbrush sprays because they always come out so great and everyone is super sweet and friendly during the entire process. recently, in a pinch for time, I even tried the versa booth and it came out great as well!!!
Super friendly, super sweet. Did not judge me when my card maxed out. And they had to have me redo it. And then the next card expired. Had to give them the new one. Very clean and easily available. You’re in and out. Very fair prices. The best one I’ve been to in a long time.
Had my first spray tan by Steph- wow! Can’t believe I have gone all these years without trying this. Loved the outcome! She was professional and made me feel very comfortable during the entire process. Definitely give it a try if you have not- well worth your time and money!
I’ve never been a spray tan girl, but Grace gave me a few airbrush sprays and I was absolutely blown away. Perfect, even spray and she even gave me a list of aftercare instructions that made my spray look 100% new for days! HIGHLY recommend Grace!
The ONLY tanning salon I’ll go to. Everyone is so knowledgeable and helpful, and the salon is always so clean. They made me feel like family when I was new in town, especially Grace. I’ll never tan anywhere else.
