1. "It will make me orange."
Yes, unfortunately some spray tanning solutions will turn you into an oompa-loompa. This may sound weird but SunFX is a green-based solution unlike some other brands that may have orange or pinkish undertones. Now, because a lot of folks are concerned with this issue many companies are jumping on the green-based bandwagon because it gives such a natural, bronzed effect.
2. "It doesn't last very long."
On average spray tans can last 5-7 days. It all depends on how WELL you take care of it. We always provide you with a post care sheet of how to properly take care of your tan to prolong the life of it. This includes things like staying moisturized, avoiding exfoliation, etc...I personally have clients that are able to get up to 10 days with their tans.
3. "It looks fake-people are NEVER naturally that tan."
There are some companies (and clients) out there that think the darker the better but at Sunkissed we promote a healthy, realistic looking tan. We have various solution shades that we choose for different skin tones so that you do look natural! Of course, if you want to be super dark we can do that but our goal is to make you look natural and healthy. :)
4. "Don't need it-I'm already using the tanning bed."
(What I want to say) "Ok, that's cool. How do you feel about losing part of your pretty face to melanoma at age 45?" (what I really say) "Do you know how bad that is for your skin? It breaks down your collagen and elastin which makes you look older and not to mention on average 1 person dies every hour from melanoma." I'm an advocate for constantly educating clients about the the dangers of ultraviolet rays but sometimes it still doesn't work. There will always be folks who won't give it up and there is simply no convincing them. Sometimes, it takes a family member being diagnosed or they wake up one morning, look in the mirror and notice those fine lines or sunspots that came up overnight. For old or new believers its not too late to get your healthy glow on.
5. My friend got it in her mouth!
There are a couple different ways to administer spray tans. Booths being 1 kind. This is where you go stand in a booth and the machine sprays you down. You have to turn around and are in charge of making sure your hands are turned the right way, hold your breath at the right time, knees are bent, etc...The other way (how Sunkissed does it) is with a spray tanning gun. A person administers this tan and not just a blind machine. Instead of YOU being in charge of your tan like the booth, WE are in charge of your tan and that makes it much more customizable. We are able to adjust the intensity of spray to better blend certain areas of your body including hands and feet and forewarn you before spraying your face so you don't have to worry about getting solution your mouth.
As you can see, spray tanning has advanced over the years and we are excited to be a part of that revolution. And remember-Instead of going off of others opinions, call or email us and we will be happy to answer any questions for you with updated information!
