How to prepare you skin for a spray tan

Everyone loves having a tan, whether it’s a natural sun-kissed glow, a beautiful fake tan or spray tan. Fake tan offers a lot more than just having a tan, it can improve your complexion, signs of ageing, skin blemishes and overall confidence. The preparation process of a spray tan is one of the most important aspects of applying a tan and can have a massive effect on how your tan develops. If you prepare the skin correctly the results will be instantly noticeable, neglect to prepare the skin and this will have a huge effect on not just how the tan will develop but also how long it will last.

There are a number of things that can alter the way fake tan develops on the skin the most common issues are:

  • Moisturizers left on the skin
  • Old Make Up
  • Perfumes
  • Oil based lotions such as shower gels
  • Oily skin
  • Old fake tan left on the skin

In order to create the perfect fake tan you must have the perfect base to apply it onto. Imagine trying to paint a picture onto a canvas that already has paint on it? It’s exactly the same when it comes to your skin, you skin needs to provide a neutral and plain base in order for the fake tan to naturally develop the way it should do. Anything that is left on the skin mentioned in the above list will alter the way your fake tan will develop and will drastically alter the results. Fake tan works by penetrating the skin with its natural tanning and moisturizing agents, if something is preventing the natural ingredients penetrating the skin then the fake tan will struggle to develop and give a deep tan which can sometimes cause a streaky effect.

How to prepare the skin before every fake tan application?

The perfect base for tanning is pH balanced skin, in order to achieve this  you need to strip all products off your skin and out of your pores. Sunjunkie have developed the only product that is proven to pH balance the skin and remove all old moisturizers, perfumes, make up and old fake tan from your skin and pores creating the perfect base for tanning.

Our fake tan exfoliating wipes have both a soft and rough side, the rough side is designed to give your skin a light exfoliation and remove all old beauty products from your skin. The soft side is designed to naturally pH balance your skin creating the perfect base for a spray or fake tan application.

How Spray Tan Solutions have changed

2016 has sparked a rather exciting new trend in the way that some people use both fake tan and spray tan solutions. Gone are the days when people used different solutions and fake tan to achieve the darkest possible look, resulting in some questionable results! Lets face it, we have all had a fake tanning disaster in our lifetime from using a shade that is too dark for our natural skin tone, to missing an area resulting in a white patch… Everyone’s done it!

The way people view spray and fake tan has changed from un-natural results to becoming a beauty essential, with many people now using tanning products to improve the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes and uneven skin tones. As a team of professional spray tan therapists we are constantly working our tanning magic on people throughout the UK and Europe, so we experience the change in trends first hand with many people now opting for a more natural look.

Spray tan solutions will only give unnatural results if the colour is too dark for a persons natural skin tone, if you find the balance between skin tone and fake tan shade, the results will give such a beautifully natural results and will improve your skin tone and complexion massively!

One example of just how much spray tan solutions and fake tan have changed over the years takes me back to when the Sunjunkie team were invited to the New York fashion week. Back then there were only a handful of designers who allowed their models to receive a spray tan before stepping foot on the catwalk, with many other designers strictly against having their models sporting an unnatural complexion. We knew that if we could find the perfect balance between the models skin tone and shade of spray tan solution we would change the way many people view fake tan and spray tan solutions… IT WORKED! Exactly 1 year after we were invited back to the NYFW, this time to spray tan double the amount of models for 3 different catwalk shows.

It’s easy to find the perfect balance with Sunjunkie spray tan solutions due to our huge range of colours and shades of spray tanning solutions and fake tan. At Sunjunkie we have a famous saying “We have your colours”  as our products are suited for every skin tone and type. We have collections of spray tan solutions for dark olive skin to fake tan for fair skin tones available in Mousse, Mist or Lotion formulas.

The Spray Tanning Season Is Here

Summer Spray Tan Solutions

Summer is just around the corner which means spray tan season is practically here. You would think that in the summer months, people will tend to be more naturally tanned due to spending more time outside in the hot summer sun. Although that is true, people also tend to wear less clothing and show off more skin which is why the need for Sunjunkie spray tan solutions is higher than ever.

With people tending to favour a safe tanning alternative such as fake tan as opposed to sunbathing in potentially harmful rays (although who doesnt love sunbathing on a beach!) the summer beginning of summer really does signal the start of the spray tanning season.

The summer of 2015 kick started a change in how people used fake tan and spray tan solutions with many people now favouring a lighter more natural looking tan. In recent years spray tanning solutions were used to achieve the darkest possible look and garnered quite a bad reputation for creating unnatural results. Sales of lower percentages and lighter shades of fake tan and solutions are on the rise which is why you should ensure you are fully stocked up for when the season hits.

Our recommendations for Summer 2016

Sunjunkie offer a wide range of spray tanning solutions that are available for every skin type, in every shade and percentage available. Each of our collections offer different results and colours from a natural sunkissed glow to a deliciously dark olive complexion. As a professional spray tan therapist it is important that you are able to provide a service for different skin types. By ensuring that you have stocked up on a wide range of solutions of different shades and percentages this will enable you to provide an almost bespoke and personal service to your client.

Here are our top recommendations for your clients in 2016

Sunjunkie 8% Supreme spray tanning solution – Taken from our best selling collection our 8% supreme will guarantee a light olive complexion for your clients that love the olive look. Our supreme solution is also available in strengths ranging from 6% – 14% however with most clients now favouring a light/medium complexion we think our 8% is the perfect choice!

How to Spot a Good Spray Tanning Machine

There a so many makes and models of spray tan machines to choose from beginner spray tan machines to professional spray tan kits for busy salons and professionals. Choosing a machine that is best suited for your business and budget is quite a hard task and can make all the difference to how successful your business will become.

There are a number of different features which can make a machine either a good or bad one. We are going to talk about the features you should ask for and make sure that your spray tan machine has before purchasing. We will also be comparing the different models and kit packages that Sunjunkie have to offer and how they are suitable for different businesses and spray tan therapists at different levels of experience.

How To Spot A Good Spray Tanning Machine

When purchasing a spray tanning machine it is important to look out for the following features to ensure that the machine is to a professional standard

  • Is the Machine a HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure)? – This means that the gun can produce a super fine spray mist which is easier to use. It will also prevent any spray tan solution wastage and any fogging effect of the room being used to spray tan in.
  • Does the Machine have various speed setting controls? – The speed setting is super handy to have, this enables you to control the correct amount of airflow which can help control the amount of solution being used. Sunjunkie always recommend using a Medium speed setting for the perfect air/slution ratio.
  • Does the Spray Tan Gun have an adjustable spray nozzle? – This is very important for controlling the amount of spray tanning solution that leaves the gun. Some clients prefer a thicker layer than others so being able to adjust you spray tan gun nozzle will help you meet different preferences among your clients
  • How many spray tans per day can the machine perform? – Not many spray tan machines have the ability to perform an unlimited amount of spray tans on a daily basis. The Sunjunkie black edition spray tanning machine is one of the only machines that can produce an unlimited amount of spray tans daily. Over usage of any other spray tanning machines can potentially lead to a burnout of the motor which means having to purchase a new spray machine.
  • Does the Machine have a heat option? – This is a real game changer in the cold winter months any client will tell you that!… The heat option enables the machine to blow out warm air to take away the initial shock of the unbearably cold solution hitting your skin.
  • How loud is the machine? – Spray tan machines should not be loud, in order to keep client interaction at an all time high you should speak to them and maintain a flowing conversation with them throughout their spray tan in order to help them feel relaxed. If the machine is too loud then it will be difficult to hear and maintain that client connection which is so important.

By following the above checklist you will be sure to find a spray tan machine that is reliable and will continuously give you and your clients great results. The machines may come at a slightly higher cost than cheaper and more unreliable machines however long term usage and savings will be guaranteed as many smaller and cheaper models will break and waster a higher amount of solution.

Spray Tan Solution for Sensitive Skin Types

When you have sensitive skin, looking for a new skin cream or beauty product can be a very daunting task. Not knowing how your skin is going to react to a certain type of ingredient is a risk in itself. It’s happened to everyone, you purchase a new moisturizer, toner or a new foundation and it just doesn’t take kindly to your skin. In some cases it can irritate your skin or maybe even cause a breakout, the list is endless.

When this happens the sensible thing to do is simply wash the new product off with warm water or discontinue use immediately. There are a number of different ingredients within different skin care products that are known to have a harsh effect on the skin.

  • Alcohol – Proven to have a harsh drying effect on the skin, sucking out all the moisture that is naturally stored. Dryness is one of the major causes for premature ageing.
  • Parabens – A preservative used by many high street beauty products to extent the shelf life of a product. Think of this as a food additive to help extend the sell by date. Some parabens have been proven to damage the skin and can cause some health issues.

Extra care should be taken when choosing a spray tan solution to use on your clients and even yourself. When your skin does not agree with a new beauty product such as a moisturizer it is easy enough to just simply discontinue use and wash the product off, however, it’s not so simple when it comes to a tanning product.

Spray tan solutions penetrate deep into the skin in order to have a lasting effect of up to 7 days. Unlike a moisturizer or foundation, simply washing with warm water will not remove the solution from your skin. In fact, there is not really anything that exists that can 100% remove spray tan solution or fake tan from your skin after it has been applied. Exfoliating your skin can help to speed up the natural process in which spray tanning solution will wear off the skin, usually 5-7 days after application.

There are steps you can take in order prevent having a reaction to a spray tanning solution:

  • Choose a solution that is Alcohol free – All Sunjunkie spray tanning solutions are alcohol free and are blended with Moisture Lock Technology ensuring that your skin is perfectly hydrated.
  • Make sure the solution is Paraben Free – Sunjunkie do not add any preservatives into their solution, we believe in keeping our solution fresh and as natural as possible.
  • Check out before and after photos and online reviews – Nothing speaks the truth like online reviews from people like yourself, listen to how they found the product, the experience and their recommendations! Check out our Sunjunkie before and after photos – Tanspiration
  • Check the price of the Spray Tan Solution – Everyone loves a bargain, but if the product is seriously cheap you need to ask why? What key ingredients are being left out, or what cheap ingredients are being added in?

Spray Tanning Machines

Great spray tanning machines can be the difference from a streaky finish to the perfect result! A gun that produces a super fine mist to evenly coat your clients skin is every spray tan professional’s dream. Like the old saying goes “A bad workman blames his tools”… In some cases this statement is absolutely true! However when it comes to spray tanning it’s not so accurate.

A bad spray tan machine can leave an uneven and streaky finish on your clients and will tend to use more spray tan solution than what is necessary. With the increase of more spray tanning solution being used on a single client your profits will drop as a result. Tests conducted by Sunjunkie found that the average amount of solution used to complete a full body spray tan with a Sunjunkie spray tanning machine was 50ml compared to 70ml when using a spray tan machine from a different brand…. Thats a whole 20ml wastage on spray tan solution!

Many spray tan machines come with a fixed speed setting which can contribute to the amount of solution being wasted. Sunjunkie spray tan machines come with a 3 speed setting to control and adjust the speed of the solution sprayed out of the spray gun preventing spray tan solution wastage.

Sunjunkie spray tanning machines can produce an unlimited amount of spray tans on a daily basis and are one of the only machines capable of performing back to back spray tans. Other models when tested have been shown to overheat and in some cases completely cut out.

Sunjunkie spray tan machines are available in a number of different models and include everything you could possibly need to start offering a spray tan service.

Spray Tanning season is just around the corner!

Spray tanning season tends to really kick off in the month of March with fast approaching public holidays such as Easter and school half terms, with many Brits jetting off on a lovely European beach holiday. Holiday season seems to kick start a sudden surge in spray tans provided by both Mobile and Professional spray tan therapists for those who want to be beach ready when stripping down to their bikini on a hot Spanish beach.

***sighs off jealousy***

For professional spray tan therapists it’s important to hit the ground running and ensure that you are fully stocked up on all spray tan solutions but more importantly, ensure that your spray tan machine is in FULL working order. When stocking up on all spray tanning solutions have a look at your most popular solution that was used in the busy periods the year before so you are not caught short on stock levels. Trust me there is nothing worse than having to turn away business due to not having a particular percentage, solution or item in stock.

If you have not used your spray tanning machine over the quieter winter months, give it a full check and a trial run to ensure that the machine is running as usual. Alternatively Sunjunkie are offering a full MOT on all spray tan kits for just £20. The full service will include testing, cleaning, spray gun and spray pattern tuning to ensure that you can provide the best possible service to your clients. We will also carry out any additional repair work although this may come at an additional cost.

Sunjunkie have a huge collection of spray tan solutions ranging in just about every percentage possible available accross all of our bestselling and unique colours.  Sunjunkie Supreme Olive Look Solution | Sunjunkie Duo Natural Solution | Sunjunkie Original Sunkissed Solution

Spray Tan Solution Booster Drops | The Benefits – Sunjunkie

Spray Tan Solutions are available in almost every shade and colour imaginable, as professional spray tan therapists we have all used just about every single percentage and strength on our customers due to their personal preference or  skin tone.

Here’s something that you guys can relate to – you are down to your last bottle of 10% Spray tanning solution, your next client who you know has a dark olive complexion, will not settle for a 10% and will DEMAND the 14% that you no longer have in stock. Your initial reaction is to instantly order a bottle of the 14% solution on a speedy next day delivery just for this client. However, there is an alternative that doesn’t involve purchasing another bottle of spray tan solution just for this client, instead with a few tiny drops of the Sunjunkie Spray Tan Booster Drops you can increase the percentage of your 10% solution to a 14%.

Spray tan booster drops are a highly concentrated formula of DHA (the stuff that makes your brown) with a measured amount added into any existing spray tan solution, you can increase the percentage as much as you want. So going back to our earlier issue of the client who wanted a 14% spray tan, there is no need to panic buy and purchase another full bottle. Instead just simply add the Sunjunkie booster drops until the solution percentage increases to the desired amount.

Full instructions on the amount to add will be fully detailed on the back of every booster drop bottle so you can be sure that you are increasing your solution by the correct percentage.

Not only do you save having to purchase another bottle of spray tanning solution for individual clients who want different percentages, but this method is massively cost effective and will maximise your usage of a bottle of spray tanning solution.
