Spray Tan FAQs
How Do I choose the look I want?
Q: Can pregnant women use SunFX?
Though our tans are the world's most natural, SunFX still recommends that women do not use a spray tan of any sort during their pregnancy. However we can recommend creating a great tan using our SunFX SUMMER'S SECRET tan builder and extender lotions!
Q: Do I still need to apply a sunscreen?
Yes you do. SunFX tanning solutions do 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 use of one of the following products: SunFX Tan Extender, SunFX Summer's Secret, SunFX Caribbean Summer or even extend and highlight the tan with our beautiful SunFX Body Shimmer. For your nearest stockists, please use the SunFX salon locator in the main navigation menu. Please note: You should avoid excessive exposure to water 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 develop within the first 2-3 hours. 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
Q: What should I wear to the salon?
It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing. 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 SunFX tan?
SunFx recommends you cleanse and exfoliate your body with SunFX Body Polish and use our luxurious SunFX Body Wash. 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 that may inhibit the effectiveness of the SunFX tanning solution.
Q: How long will my SunFX tan last?
Most people can expect their SunFX 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 with one of our unique SunFX tan extenders will extend the tan's life greatly.
