At Carmel’s, we use SUNFX Professional Tanning products which offer a huge range of colors in both Original and Rapid as well as a great range of at home Tanning Products. We are happy to help with selecting the right products for you!
Exfoliate your entire body before the application with an exfoliating mit, loafer or damp face washer. Pay close attention to rough areas like knees, elbows ankles and the tops of your toes.
Do Not apply any moisturiser, deodorant or make up after exfoliating. Wear loose dark clothing to the tanning appointment and a brief g-string is highly recommended.
Your technician will ensure your tan is dry after the treatment and will advise you on your minimum developing time and when it is best to have a shower.
When showering, you may notice some colour washing off you, don’t be concerned as this is part of the tanning process.
A short and warm shower is recommended followed by patting yourself dry with a towel then MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE. Moisturising extends the life of the tan as well as preventing it from looking streaky and blotchy on the skin.
Other considerations in maintaining a great looking tan are to avoid long baths, hot spas and extended swimming sessions. Chlorinated pools are a definite no no! Also avoid using products that are designed to exfoliate your skin.
If you are having an ORIGINAL SunFX Spray Tan, We recommend that the tan be applied late in the afternoon so you can sleep in the tan overnight to allow it to develop properly. If you are getting a tan for a special event it is recommended that you get the tan 1-2 days before the occasion.
If you are having a RAPID Spray Tan and it is for a special event you should have your application a minimum 3 hours before your event.
If you have never had a Spray Tan before and you would like one for a special occasion e.g. a wedding etc. We highly recommend that you come in a few weeks before and have a trial tan so we can tailor a specific color to you and also so know how it’s going to turn out on the day.
SKIN: If you feel that you have highly sensitive skin, or have any doubts, we recommend a small localised test spray to check your skin compatibility before having your SunFX Spray.
CLOTHES: We recommend that you wear dark, loose fitting attire after your appointment. Any minor rub off will wash out of most fabrics, but some lighter coloured materials, including leather, may stain.
SUNSCREEN: The SunFX spray- on- tan DOES NOT contain a sunscreen. Please make sure you apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn when outdoors.
