How to use Sarco Skin Tape
1. APPLY A TEST STRIP
-If this is your first time using Sarco Skin kinesiology tape, place a small test strip somewhere easy to monitor – we recommend your arm, to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients/materials.
When applying a test strip, leave it on for a full day – if you notice irritation or pain whatsoever, take off the tape right awa.
2. TRIM THE CORNERS
-This will help prevent the tape from catching on clothing or peeling up.
3. TRIM, MOVE OR REMOVE EXCESS HAIR
-Depending on where you are applying the kinesiology tape, you may need to take care of the hair in the area beforehand. This will greatly help adhesion time.
4. CLEAN AND DRY THE SKIN
-Before you place your kinesiology tape, make sure that the application area is clean, free of lotions or oils, and is completely dry.
-If you are applying Sarco Skin shortly after working out, wait until your body is done sweating before placing the product.
-PLACE THE TAPE AT LEAST 1 HOUR BEFORE EXERCISING
This gives the adhesive time to strengthen its hold, and the active ingredients to start working.
5. RECOMMENDED STRETCH
-Sarco Skin is latex free and works best with a 25% stretch.
6. REMOVING SARCO SKIN TAPE
Once it’s time for your Sarco Skin tape to come off, there are a few things to make the process a little more comfortable:
-Make sure the tape is COMPLETELY dry.
-DO NOT use any oils to assist in removing.
-Press down on your skin to make it taught.
