SunFX Airbrush Spray Tanning
Before Your Tanning Appointment
Prior to receiving your SunFX spray-on tan we recommend you cleanse and exfoliate your entire body using either our awesome but gentle exfoliating gloves or our SunFX Body Polish with natural almond shell .
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 prior to receiving your spray tan will help greatly to eliminate the top layers of dry and dead skin and leave your skin fresh and ready for your ultimate tan.
It is also best to shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to receiving your spray tan if possible.
On the Day of your Spray Tan
On the day of your spray tan we recommend that you avoid the use of deodorants, most moisturizers, perfume and make-up if possible 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; and whilst minor rub off will easily wash out of most fabrics, some lighter colored materials, including leather, may stain.
When getting your spray on sun tan you may wear as little as you like or a full bathing suit. Most people wear just a G-String or disposable undies that are provided complimentary, but this is a personal choice. As a spray tan technician, I am fully trained to operate in a discreet manner and fully respect client confidentially. If you would like to wear something more than just a G-String during the application of your tan then we suggest a bikini for women and dark shorts or swimmers for men.
Once your SunFX tan has been applied, you can reasonably expect it to last for up to 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and providing you the following instructions below.
Once your tan is applied you must leave it to dry completely. I will ensure that your application is dry before you leave, but as a precaution, 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 only soft body wash rather than normal soaps which can be abrasive which in turn reduces the lifespan of your tan. Also, when drying off with a towel, dab the skin dry instead of rubbing.
