How Spray Tan Works
The specially made airbrush atomises the “Sun Spray” into a cooling vapour onto the skin ensuring an even application. One of the active ingredients in the Sun Spray, Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids on the outermost top layer of the skin to produce a bronzed tan – much like the sun does but without UVA and UVB damage to the skin. The tan usually last between 5 to 10 days, the way the tan fades and the length of time it last is dependant on how each person usually loses his or her skin. Regular moisturising is essential to prolong the duration of the tan, especially during hotter months or in dry climates.
In the morning of your tanning appointment (or the night before) you should exfoliate your entire body. Exfoliation will remove dead skin that would otherwise flake off and helps to promote even coverage and lengthen the duration of your tan. When you exfoliate pay particular attention to the lower half of your legs, knees, ankles, top of feet, toes, elbows and knuckles. You may use an exfoliation lotion, face cloth, scrubbing mitt or loofah. Use a pumice stone on feet if necessary.
It is best to shave or wax at least 12 hours before your tanning appointment. We are unable to offer any waxing treatments on the same day of your tan. Waxing during the life of your tan will remove it – therefore we recommend that you do not wax for at least 7 days after the application.
Creams & Lotions:
Do not apply moisturisers or use any roll-on deodorants until after your post-tanning shower (see below), lotions can act as a barrier and prevent the Sun Spray from contacting with the skin. The same applies to your face and the wearing of make-up.
What to Wear:
Wear loose fitting clothing, with preferably sandals to your tanning appointment. Plan to spend about 30 – 40 minutes at the salon. The actual tanning will take about 15 minutes but you need to allow 10 minutes drying time. The tanning solution washes out of most clothing very easily, but may stain clothing.
Following the Application
First 5 Hours:
Immediately following your tanning application, for at least 5 hours, you should:
- Not wash your hands or wear tight clothing.
- Not exercise. Perspiring immediately after tanning alters the chemical reaction of the sun spray.
- Not swim or immerse yourself in water.
- Not apply moisturiser.
- Not wear shoes or socks after your tanning session if your feet sweat. The sweat can turn your feet yellow or orange – sandals are good choice.
Due to a reaction of the active ingredients and amino acids of the skin, some clients, based on their particular body chemistry, will notice a “starch” smell on their skin shortly after their tanning application. This will disappear with the post-tan shower.
After 8 Hours:
Wait at least 8 hours after your tanning application before showering or bathing. You need to allow enough time for the reaction to take place – the longer the better. Do not be alarmed if you see colour washing off the first time you shower as this just the surface colour application. Your skin will continue to tan as the self-tan reaction works on your skin.
Maintaining Your Tan
Apply moisturiser, morning and evening, after your post-tan shower. A well hydrated skin is essential in maintaining a longer life of your tan.
Lotions containing Alpha Hydroxyl Acids are used to increase exfoliation, therefore will accelerate the fading process of your tan.
Sunjunkie Spray Tanning must not be used if you are pregnant or if you have eczema, psoriasis, cuts or abrasions.
There are no harmful side effects reported from the use of Sunjunkie Spray tan. A very small amount of people may be allergic to DHA and may break out in red spots. If you have reacted badly to sunless tanning lotions before, please advise us before your tanning session. We always recommend that you have a trial run 4 – 6 weeks before any important occasion, in the rare case on unexpected results or allergies.
