Pre-Tan and Post Tan Steps

THREE STEPS TO ACHIEVING THE ULTIMATE SPRAY-ON TAN

There is no doubt that SunFX all natural salon spray tans are the best in the world, providing a beautifully natural looking tan. To ensure that you get the very best results from your SunFX tan experience, we recommend that you follow these 3 simple steps:

1 DAY BEFORE TANNING

Prior to receiving your spray-on tan we recommend you cleanse and exfoliate your entire body using a scrub or exfoliating mit.

It's important when exfoliating that you pay particular attention to rough skin areas like knees, ankles, heels and the tops of your feet as dry areas tend to absorb tanning solution faster, which can result in an uneven looking tan.

It is also best to shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to receiving your spray tan if possible.


2 ON THE DAY OF YOUR SPRAY TAN

On the day of your spray tan we recommend that you arrive bare skinned:  avoid the use of deodorants, moisturizers, perfume and make-up as these may inhibit the effectiveness of the tanning solution.

Clothing:  We recommend that you have dark, loose fitting attire to put on after your tanning application as some minor rub off can occur after your spray tan. While minor rub off will wash out of most fabrics, some lighter colored materials, including leather, may stain and is best avoided.

When getting your spray on sun tan you may wear as little as you like or a full dark swim suit. Most people wear just a thong (disposables provided) but this is a personal choice. All the spray tan technicians are fully trained to operate in a discreet manner and fully respect client confidentially. If you would like to wear something more than just a thong during the application of your tan then we suggest a bikini for women and dark shorts or swimming trunks for men.

Spray Tan Application:

Your spray tan will be professionally applied in a private booth by a certified SunFX technician. The process only takes about 5 -15 minutes after which your skin will feel touch dry. You will immediately notice a completely natural looking tan that will continue to develop over the next 5 to 12 hours. The application itself is quick and easy.

For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 5 hours after application:

  • Water
  • Saunas / Jacuzzis
  • Physical Exercise / Sweating
  • Swimming
  • Tight Fitting Clothing

IMPORTANT ADVICE!

Skin: If you feel you have highly sensitive skin, or you have any doubts, we recommend a small localized test spray to check your skin compatibility before having your SunFX spray.
Sunscreen: The SunFX spray-on tanning solutions DO NOT contain any sunscreen. Please make sure you apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn when outdoors.


3 AFTER TANNING

You can reasonably expect it to last for up to 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and providing you follow the instructions below.

Once your tan is applied you must leave it to dry completely. Do not wet your skin for at least 5 hours after the tanning session. Showering the following morning is the best option.

We recommend that you do not exercise or perspire excessively between the tanning and the showering phase.

When showering do not be concerned if some of the initial bronzer washes off, this is part of the tanning process and your skin will continue to tan.

When showering we recommend that you use a gentle body wash. Avoid any exfoliating or harsher cleaners.

Your spray tan will also last longer if you avoid:

  • Long baths
  • Hot Jacuzzis
  • Extended swimming sessions
  • Any product that is designed to exfoliate your skin

Tan Extender hydration will also help extend the life our your tan.
