How to clean your spray tan equipment

It is important to clean your spray tanning equipment regularly to help ensure longevity and efficiency. It also promotes a professional, clean look in your beauty salon, this is important for clients first impressions. To clean the machine and hose, simply wipe over with a damp cloth. This should ideally be done at the end of each day to avoid any build up of overspray on your machine.

 

To Clean Your Machine Filter

The filter is located at the base of the machine. It is vital that the filter and cover are cleaned at least once a week, depending on spray tan volume. The filter protects the machines internal motor from overspray, if not maintained correctly your equipment risks getting damaged and breaking.

 

Remove the filter cover and wipe over with a damp cloth to clean.

 

Remove the black filter and hold under running water until clean.

 

Leave the filter to air dry* over night, once dried you may insert the filter into your spray tan machine.

 

*never replace the filter or cover until fully dry, and NEVER use your Naked Tan spray tan machine unless the filter and cover are both securely in place.

 

To Clean Your Naked Tan Spray Gun

To ensure your Naked Tan Tanning Pro gun is maintained correctly, and you are getting the best results from your equipment, we recommend cleaning your spray tan guns at the end of every day. When cleaning your spray tan gun follow these simple instructions:

 

Pour water into the cup and screw into the gun.

 

Attach the gun to the hose and adjust to setting 8 to clean.

 

Turn the machine onto full power, holding the gun over the sink pull the trigger and allow the water to blow through the gun.

 

Continue spraying the water until the water appears clear. You can test this by holding a cloth, or paper towel in front of the nozzle.

 

Once the water is coming through and appears to be clear, unscrew the cup from the gun, rinse thoroughly and leave aside to air dry.

 

To dry the gun, begin by removing the hose from the guns handle. With air still blowing from the hose, hold the hose below the suction tube inside the gun while squeezing the trigger so the guns nozzle is open. Hold for approximately 20 seconds to ensure this section of your gun is dry. NEVER TRY TO REMOVE THE SUCTION TUBE, THIS IS A FIXED PART OF THE GUN.

 

When your gun is cleaned and dried correctly the guns pin will appear white and dry, with no traces of tanning solution.

 

To clean the outer part of the gun wipe over with a damp cloth. Then leave the gun and cup to dry on a towel over night. Always remember to readjust the gun to your preferred setting before your next spray tan! (recommended setting 3 or 4)

 

*NEVER SPRAY WITH A WET OR DAMP GUN, WATER MIXED WITH YOUR TANNING SOLUTION WILL CONTAMINATE THE PRODUCT AND MAY PREVENT THE TAN FROM DEVELOPING. ALWAYS ENSURE YOUR GUN IS FULLY DRY BEFORE USE

Tanning for Dummies!

When it comes to applying your fake tan at home this can be a stressful process as you want to make sure you are using the right products and applying the self tan appropriately.

When tanning at home make sure you are not applying your tan over a carpet surface as you may drop some product when applying the tan. The best space to fake tan is in your bathroom as this area is bright and you should use the mirror as guidance for areas you may have missed. Naked Tan recommend the Goddess Tanned Bronzing Mousse for those who have fairer skin and the Naked Tan Chocolate Bronzing Mousse for those who have an olive complexion.  The Naked Tan Goddess Self Tan is the texture of moisturiser rather than a mousse. This colour is similar to the Tanned Mousse. All 3 products should be left on for 2hrs before showering. It is important to remember that it is not necessary to leave your tan on for longer than 4 hours as this is when discolouration starts to occur.

The Naked Tan Applicator Mitt is the key to ensuring your fake tan is applied flawlessly and streak free. The applicator mitt is used to ensure you have full even coverage and won’t leave your hands tanned or blotchy. The applicator mitt can be used to apply the Naked Tan Goddess Bronzing Mousse, Naked Tan Goddess Self Tan or the Naked Tan Instant Tan. It is important to look after your mitt so it does not get a build up of product left in it, this will cause your mitt to harden. You can simply wash your fake tan mitt out with water after each use to keep it in tan ready condition!

Green Solution?!

Have you ever experienced your clients skin throwing shades of green or have poured your Naked Tan Spray Tan Solution into your tanning cup and have noticed it has turned green? If your spray tan solution pours or sprays green this means that your solution is out of date or has been exposed to sunlight. If you go ahead and spray your solution on a client their skin will not come out bronzed and beautiful however completely green!! It is essential that you keep your tanning solution in a cool place, under 25 degrees, as if it overheats this will also damage the tanning solution.

 

The Naked Tan Professional Range has a shelf life of 12 months and 9 months after opening. On your Naked Tan bottle there is an expiry date on the bottom, be sure to keep on top of this if you are not spray tanning regularly.

 

Occasionally you will get a client who has forgotten to take off their deodorant or perfume. You will notice this when spray tanning as those areas, under the armpits, neck or wrists will discolour to a green. When booking in your client always remind them to remove these beauty products. We recommend asking your client when she arrives for her spray tan if she has prepared for her tan correctly. To prevent this happening also have a towel or wipes on hand as many customers would have come directly from work.

Mixing the Naked Tan Signature Range

When selecting the Naked Tan Solution to spray tan your client in it is essential you colour consult them first. This is through assessing their skin tone and chatting to your client about the colour they wish to achieve. For those clients who have olive complexion Naked Tan recommend spray tanning in either the Chocolate or Exotic Solutions. For those with fair skin Naked Tan recommend the Naked Tan Natural Solution or Naked Tan Tanned Solution.

Naked Tan Spray Tan Tones

It is important to note that it is okay to mix Naked Tan Solutions together. This may occur when your solution is running out of date or when a client wants to go an in between colour. Naked Tan suggest mixing a cooler solution such as the Naked Tan Chocolate or Naked Tan Exotic with a warmer spray tan solution such as Naked Tan Natural or Naked Tan Tanned. Combinations you may wish to mix include…
