The Tan Commandments
1. All waxing must be done 24 hours before Spraytan application.
2. Remove any traces of old tan by using a Tan Removal mitt
3. Exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and give a smooth base for your tan.
4. Make sure your underarms are deodorant free, no moisturizer or makeup. Clean fresh skin, avoid using any oil based products, as they can leaves traces on the skin that can cause streaking.
POST TAN TIPS
5. Dress. Wear dark loose clothing after your application.
6. Rinse. Try and keep bath and showers cool or luke warm as hot water can stimulate the tan to break up faster.
7. Moisturize the tan twice a day to lock in hydration and help your tan to fade naturally.
8. Wash. Pat skin dry with your towel, rigorous drying will scrub off the tan and makes it go patchy.
9. Avoid. Try not to swim, the chlorine can strip the tan off the body and cause patchiness.
10. Book. Avoid disappointment and secure your spot for next time!
Three Steps to Achieving the Ultimate Spray-On Tan
1- BEFORE TANNING
Prior to receiving your SunFX spray-on tan we recommend you cleanse and exfoliate your entire body using our gorgeous SunFX Body Polish.
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.
Exfoliating with SunFX Body Polish prior to receiving your spray tan will help to eliminate the top layers of dry and dead skin.
It’s best to shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to receiving your spray tan if possible. We also recommend using our luxurious SunFX Body Wash after you exfoliate to remove any remaining dry skin cells.
2- THE DAY OF YOUR SPRAY TAN
On the day of your spray tan we recommend that you avoid the use of deodorants, moisturizers, perfumes and make-up as these may inhibit the effectiveness of the SunFX tanning solution.
It’s important that you have suitable tanning attire to wear after your appointment. 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 this minor rub off will easily wash out of most fabrics, some lighter colored materials, including leather, may stain.
When getting your spray tan you may wear as little as you like or a full swim suit. Most people wear just a thong 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 spray tan we would suggest a bikini for women and dark shorts or swimming trunks for men.
Your Spray Tan:
Your spray tan will be professionally applied in a private booth by a certified SunFX technician, using one of our worlds leading SunFX tanning solutions. The process only takes about 5 minutes after which your skin will feel dry to the touch. 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 and certainly nothing to get anxious about.
For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 5 hours after application:
• Saunas / Jacuzzis
• Physical Exercise / Sweating
• Tight Fitting Clothing
Skin: If you feel you have highly sensitive skin, or if you have any doubts, we recommend a small, localized test spray to check your skin compatibility before having your Treats SunFX spray tan applied.
Sunscreen: The SunFX spray-on tanning solutions DO NOT contain any sunscreen. Please be sure to apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn when outdoors.
3- AFTER TANNING
Now that your SunFX tan has been applied, you can reasonably expect it to last for 7-14 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. Your SunFX technician will ensure that your application is dry before you leave. As a precaution, do not wet your skin for at least 5 hours after your 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. We recommend that you use SunFX Body Wash rather than normal soaps, which can be abrasive and in turn reduce the lifespan of your tan.
If you want your tan to last even longer, we would recommend using our sensational SunFX Tan Extender which will aid in the hydration of your skin thus extending the life of your tan. SunFX Summer’s Secret is another excellent product to consider as it actually builds on your salon tan as well as hydrates your skin. And if you would like to highlight and extend your tan at the same time then you can’t pass up our SunFX Body Shimmer – it’s simply gorgeous.
Finally, if you want your SunFX spray tan to last as long as possible you should avoid the following:
• Long baths
• Hot Jacuzzis
• Extended swimming sessions
• Any product that is designed to exfoliate your skin
SunFX will, on nearly every skin type, provide an impressive and natural looking tan. In fact in many instances, the results of our spray tan can be superior to sun and tanning bed exposure.
