The most common questions we receive
If you have any question please contact us with trust!
"Do I still get tan with your machines?"
You certainly do. Kiwisun's key future is a tan without the usual yellow sunbed shade. This advantage can be reached only with using low wavelenght BIO Skinangel bulbs, which is available only in Kiwisun Tanning franchise,nowhere else. The light reaches the deeper tissue while leaving the upper epidermis calm and happy.
Are your beds safe then?
Unfortunately there is no difference made in Ireland between regular sunbeds and our EU-regulated, strictly controlled beds, therefore the same rules/law applies for our salon, we can not promote ourselves as safe tanning. The only fact we can say is, every sunbed over 0.3w/m2 value has been announced unsafe and they are banned in many countries for health and safety reasons. If you would like to know more about us, the best we can advise is to look for our partner franchise salons which are based outside of IRL and read through their website.
What are indoor tanning products for?
We highly recommend to use tanning lotion before your session. If your not using a sunbed cream or tanning accelerator, your skin will reflect as much as half of the UV energy also your tan will be more even with using indoor tanning lotions and you hydrate your skin which is also very important, When you are tanning, dry skin reflects the light, not allowing UV rays to be absorbed as quickly as when using a lotion. By using a lotion, you are allowing more UV light to penetrate your skin more quickly, which can develop tan up to 60% faster. Dry skin is not healthy skin; so it is essential to keep your skin in optimum condition.
Which cream should I choose?
Firstly, check to see if the lotion contains an ingredient called tyrosine. It’s an amino acid and serves to stimulate the production of melanin. For the people who do not know, melanin is the protein that colors your skin. If you can “feed” this protein, you are going to tan more quickly and consistently.
Another thing you want to do is ensure the lotion also has a moisturiser in it and vitamin E. There is a full range of creams and accelerators available for both Men & Women to purchase in the salon and our receptionist will ensure that you get the one which is tailored for your skin type.
Complementary sauna session? Why?
Yes! We provide you with 2 minutes complementary sauna session before your tanning session, if you choose to use our stand up bed. Working out or using sauna before your tanning session is very helpful so we recommend to tan after gym rather then before gym. The sauna is very useful as well because it will gently warm your skin, expanding the pores thus helping to achieve a more even and longer lasting tan. In addition to this it will help to boost the bodies natural immune system. The infra sauna also help to releases stress, helps to absorb vitamin D and at least but not last it has stimulating effect.

Do I get any free minutes if I buy a tanning pass?
No, unfortunately we are not allowed to give out any free minutes at any event. The sunbed regulations are valid to all sunbed studios, and from 2014 non of the tanning studios are allowed to give any happy hour, instead we have amazing cream offers with tanning passes, where you can still save your money.
