Spray tan is a faster, safer and healthier alternative. Thanks to the SunFX sunless spray tanning system, you can get the perfect tan in just five minutes without damaging your skin. In fact, a SunFX spray tan can typically produce superior results to suntanning or tanning beds.

How to achieve perfect spray tan
Before your Spray Tan
Prior to receiving your SunFX spray-on tan we recommend you cleanse and exfoliate your entire body using our SunFX Cleansing Foam and an exfoliating pouf.
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 coloured 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 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 G-String during the application of your tan then we suggest a bikini for women and dark shorts or swimmers for men.
The application of your Spray Tan
Your spray tan will be professionally applied in a private booth by a trained Spray tan therapist, using one of our world leading SunFX tanning solutions. The process only takes about 5 – 7 minutes. After the initial application the therapist will often remove the hose from the spray Applicator and apply some warm and comfortable drying air for a minute or two, 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 2 – 5 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 2 – 5 hours after application:
- Saunas / Spas
- Physical Exercise / Sweating
- Tight Fitting Clothing
IMPORTANT ADVICE for those with Sensitive Skin.
Skin: If you feel you have highly sensitive skin, or you have any doubts, we recommend a patch test to check your skin compatibility before having your SunFX spray.
After your Spray Tan
Now that 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 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, 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.
Q: Can pregnant women use SunFX spray tan?
Though our tans use organic, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients, SunFX still adopt the point of referring to your GP before the use of any spray tan during their pregnancy. However we can recommend creating a great tan using our SunFX Summer Secret Gradual Tan!
Q: Do I still need to apply a sunscreen?
Yes you do. SunFX tanning solution does not provide any useful protection against harmful UV rays. SunFX recommends the use of an approved SPF 30+ sunscreen 15 minutes prior to sun exposure.
Q: How do I extend the life of my tan?
Your spray tan can be extended through the daily hydration of your skin. Please note: You should avoid excessive exposure to water, waxing and any form of exfoliation during the life of your spray tan.
Q: What should I do after my tan has been applied?
The SunFX tan will start to develop straight away. For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 3-8 hours or 2-5 hours for the Rapid Tans after application: Water, Saunas, Physical exercise / sweating, Swimming, Tight fitting clothing
Q: What should I wear to the spa?
It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing after your spray tanning appointment. Sunfx tanning solution, in most cases, will not stain clothing and any slight rub-off should come out in the wash. However, some staining may occur on some light coloured leather, acrylic or other sensitive fabrics.
Q: How do I prepare for my spray tan?
SunFX recommends you cleanse and exfoliate your body. This will ensure the best possible result from your spray tan by eliminating the top layers of dry and dead skin. It is also best to avoid the use of deodorants and moisturizers and any other products that may inhibit the effectiveness of the SunFX tanning solution.
Q: How long will my spray tan last?
Most people can expect their spray tan to last for up to 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and preparation. Some may even keep their tan for up to 10 days. Regular moisturizing will extend the tan’s life greatly.
Q: Is SunFX spray tan safe to use?
Our exclusive SunFX Solution is regarded the world over as one of the finest. The unique combination of organic, natural and hypoallergenic Ingredients along with highly purified water (aqua) and the natural sugar derived approved cosmetic tanning agent DHA produce a truly remarkable tanning result. Our product is unique and clients can be assured that it contains no alcohol, oils, perfumes, parabens or artificial preservatives.
Q: How good are the spray tan results?
SunFX spray tan will, on nearly all skin types, provide an impressive and natural looking tan. In fact in many instances, the result can be superior to sun and solarium exposure.
Q: Why aren’t SunFX tanning solutions listed as Organic like many others claim?
SunFX uses a unique blend of organic, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients. Though some tanning brands wish to list their solutions as organic, it is widely known and documented that the main active tanning ingredient DHA though a natural product can never be an organic product. To date no DHA company in the world has ever achieved an organic certification for their product. Hence, SunFX believe we would be misleading our precious customers into thinking that we actually have a purely organic product where in fact we would not. Even if for instance all our other ingredients were in fact organic this would still not give us a 100% organic tanning solution. We believe in insuring 100% transparency in our ingredients listing and claims.

WHAT DO I DO ABOUT DRY SKIN?
Exfoliation is a key step in your skin’s overall health. When we exfoliate our skin, it automatically signals the body to produce more collagen, also allowing for body products to penetrate properly.
Dry brushing is perfect for detoxifying the body and stimulating the lymphatic system. It’s great for circulation to keep swelling and puffiness down.
