All you have to do is follow the prompts and Spraytoniqs will work out your very own brand of faux glow in a matter of seconds. With questions like your tanning habits, time preferences, gender, and reaction to sun exposure, Spraytoniqs can generate information for your specific skin tone – including which celebs have the same skin tone type as you! Fab!

The app can also tell you where your closest salon is that uses Spraytoniqs products so that you can get the most gorgeous, seamless tan without ever exposing your skin to any danger.

Skin Cancer Stats

Melanoma is one of the top five cancerous killers in Australia. In fact, it is estimated that over 10,000 Australians are treated for skin cancer each year and it’s an unfortunate statistic but on average, 1,200 people die from it yearly. The disease is caused by a myriad of things including genetic and environmental factors but a huge contributor to the problem is the exposure of skin to ultra violet (UV) rays which, incidentally, is what a lot of people think is essential in achieving the perfect tan.
The bronze-skinned babe tanning on the beach is an internationally recognised Australian trope and it’s not too far from the truth – 27% of Australians actively seek a tan. However, tanning in the sun and even in solariums can be extremely damaging to the skin.

You don’t have to put your skin at risk to get a great tan. Spraytoniqs deliver the perfect faux tan with unique interface spray guns based on technology from the automotive industry to deliver the finest mist. Not only this but Spraytoniqs has also developed tanning solutions and customised skin treatments for all skin types, meaning you get the best tan possible without damaging a single cell.
So, don’t put your skin at risk. Run down to Bronzalicious in Neutral Bay and get a Spraytoniqs tan!

Choose your Skincare Products Wisely:

We're so lucky these days to have just a giant array of beauty products to choose from. In fact, there are so many options and varieties on the market that it can become overwhelming quite quickly! Well here's a silver lining for you- you should only be shopping for products based on your skin type- and knowing what those products are can save you a lot of time, stress, and hassle. You'll be able to quickly eliminate certain products, and narrow down your focus on things that are already recommended to work with your skin.

If you have oily skin: Choose a matte gel moisturiser instead of a cream based one. This step can help save you from suffering from an oily face mid way through the day. Avoid products that include any shimmer or glitter. Always opt for matte instead.

If you have dry skin: A cream based moisturiser will impart enough hydration to keep your skin happy and itch free for the entire work day. Just like those with oily skin, avoiding shimmer and glitter is recommended.

Those prone to dry skin are often prone to sensitivities and irritations as well and glitter or shimmer are more likely to rock the boat than anything else.

What tips have you learned over the years to manage your own skin type and keep your skin happy and healthy?

How to Age Like a Supermodel

Here are a few tidbits from around the web we thought you'd enjoy....some timeless Supermodels share their secrets to aging gracefully. Leave us a note and let us know which tip resonates with you!


"I'm very proud of being fit and strong at this age. I like to Spin three times a week at least and couple it with yoga. I've been dancing on Broadway for years, so when I'm in a show, my muscle memory comes right back. It's like being an athlete." —Brooke Shields, 45


"After age 27, I'd always put SPF on my face. This is just my face. No Botox, no fillers, no nothing. When I compare myself with women my age who haven't been so SPF-specific, it does seem like their skin took more of a beating. I didn't worry about my chest, so the difference can be seen there. It's way wrinklier than my face." —Paulina Porizkova-Ocasek, 46

The 'Man Tan' is #Trending

The man tan is on trend, and making waves with gents everywhere!

Of course we're supporters of the man tan- big believers in the fact that everyone looks great with a good glow! And while we women may be attracted to spray tans for the bronze color and slimming effect, it's something else that's drawing the guys. Similar to it's slimming effect, spray tans also have the benefit of making a mans muscles look more defined & cut. 

All we have to say is ohhh la la to the man tan!
