Unique kinesiology/sports tape that supports while allowing full range of motions. It’s used to decrease pain, decompress tissue, and provide stimulus that improves body awareness. SKINES Body Tape is a premium brand of kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, kinesiology tape is used today by a wide variety of health professionals throughout the world to both prevent and treat injuries and pain. The medial-grade tapes are also used as breast tapes to lift, support. and contour boobs, as well as create ample cleavage.
When applied properly, SKINES Body Tape lifts the skin away from underlying muscles and nerve endings to provide relief from pain. This unique lifting action also improves blood flow to muscles, which can help delay fatigue and accelerate recovery.
When applied correctly, SKINES Body Tape’s unique elasticity causes the skin to form convolutions and wrinkle. This decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin. It is believed that this has three main effects:
Fluid effect- improving blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area.
Mechanical effect- improving the slide and glide between tissue layers.
Neurological effect- altering the perception of pain and improving body awareness.
SKINES Body Tape is manufactured in South Korea which has much more stringent quality controls. This results in a product which is stickier, stretchier and superior. Not to forget the extensive range of colours and patterns available which cater for every personality and fashion type. SKINES Body Tape is designed to be friendly on the skin, and has the strength to hold and support. The secret with SKINES Body Tape is mostly in the adhesive! Also, it's formulated to hold the heaviest of breasts with a super strong grip!
Muscle pain or cramping – e.g. lower back or calf muscles
- Joint pain – e.g. shoulder or knee
- Poor posture
- Inflammation or bruising
Not at all. If you can apply rigid tape, you can apply SKINES Body Tape. There are instructions in every box and instructional videos can be viewed on our website and social media. Depending on which bit of your body needs taping, you may need someone else to help you, e.g. your shoulder or lower back.
The recommended retail price for uncut roll (5m x 5cm) is $21.99 and precut roll is $23.99. A roll will last for about 10-20 applications, or about one to two months, depending on frequency and length of applications.
SKINES Body Tape can be worn for 3-5 days. It is 97% organic cotton and 3% high grade nylon, is water resistant and can be worn while swimming or in the shower. However, it's important to replace the tape at shorter intervals.
We recommend that there are no moisturisers, oils or any products on the skin before applying SKINES Body Tape.
Shaving body hair prior to application of SKINES Body Tape is not essential. If the tape is removed correctly, there will be very little body hair removed with the SKINES Body Tape.
The reason we do this is that the corners are much more likely to catch on clothing, towels, sheets, etc. and cause the edge of the tape to lift. Once this lifts, the rest of the tape can peel off very quickly. We want your tape to last 3-5 days, so this is important! If an edge lifts, carefully trim the SKINES Body Tape that has lifted with scissors, as that will allow you get longer from your application. The ends of the SKINES Body Tape which lift are the anchors and won’t impact the benefits of the application.
SKINES Body Tape is elastic with 180% stretch. So when we apply the SKINES Tape, we don’t apply any stretch to the first and last 3cm of the SKINES Tape. This anchor means the tape is going to stay stuck better, but most importantly, it reduces the risk of skin traction injuries that can occur right at the very end of the tape. If you have a very small patch of irritation on the skin where the tape started or finished, this is most likely the cause. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT IN AREAS WHERE THERE IS A LOT OF SKIN MOVEMENT, LIKE AROUND THE SHOULDER.
SKINES Body Tape is stretchy stuff! For the newbies to taping, it is really tempting to pull a lot of the stretch out of the tape as you apply it. But the ideal scenario for most applications is to stretch the body part that you are taping and only apply a very small amount of stretch to the tape. Once again, this is REALLY IMPORTANT when taping around shoulders. Some stretch can be applied to the second piece of SKINES Body Tape – normally referred to as the decompression strip. But don’t apply any more than 25% stretch.
Yes, SKINES Body Tape is hypoallergenic. There is no latex or zinc oxide in SKINES Body Tape. SKINES Body Tape is made from a combination of cotton (97%) and nylon and the adhesive is acrylic. We recommend anyone who has a history of skin irritation with tape to try a test patch. To do this, apply a small piece of tape to an area of skin near where you wish to apply the tape. Leave for 24 hours to ensure there is no reaction.
The adhesive is heat activated, so rubbing the SKINES Body Tape after application will create some heat and assist the adhesive to adhere to the skin. The longer the interval between application and exercise and/or when the SKINES Body Tape gets wet, the more firmly the tape will attach to the skin as the body heat fires up and activates the adhesive. For an event like a marathon or a triathlon, it is best to apply the SKINES Body Tape the night before after having a shower to ensure the skin is clean and then the warm bed will ensure the SKINES Body Tape is well adhered.
You can place a warm heat pack on the SKINES Body Tape and the warmth from the heat pack will fire up the adhesive and shorten the recommended time span between application and exercise. You can also use a hair dryer to create some warmth. Or you apply an adhesive spray to the skin before applying the SKINES Body Tape.
SKINES Breast Tape
SKINES Tape is also designed to be worn as a breast lift tape, replacing bras yey fulfilling much more. The thick, wide strips provide an instant lift, support and shape to the breast while contouring and creating the perfect cleavage.
When the breast is placed in the desired position, SKINES Breast Tape creates your desired cleavage, in addition to supporting, lifting, and contouring your boobs underneath various clothing options. This way, you won't have to wear a bra as SKINES Boob Tape lifts the breasts perfectly thanks to having the same elasticity as your skin. SKINES Breast Tape is strong enough to support your breasts of any size and shape without weighing around your shoulders and restricting your natural movement. SKINES Breast Tape is particularly perfect underneath tricky clothing items – backless, strapless, low-cut dresses and tops, and any outfits with more revealing necklines such as halter, plunging, tiarngle, and other similar styles.
We recommend using nipple covers before using SKINES Breast Tape as an extra precaution to sensitive nipples.
Yes. SKINES Breast Tape comes in 5 skin tone colours: white, light, nude, tan, and dark. The rich variety allows you to pick the colour that best matches your skin colour or contour/blend your boobs naturally under your different clothing items.
SKINES Breast Tape is different from classic boob tapes such as gaffer tapes or duct tapes. The materials used in the design of our boob tapes are skin-friendly – made of 97% cotton and a fully hypoallergenic adhesive layer. This ensures little to zero skin burns or irritation. However, we always recommend doing a test patch before application.
Plus, SKINES Boob Tape comes in different forms – precut strips, precut rolls, and uncut rolls – and in 5 skin tone colours.
Thanks to its hypollergenic adhesive, SKINES Breast Tape can be worn for several hours on end (preferrably 6-8 hours). However, we always recommend trying a test patch prior to application.
Yes! SKINES Breast Tape lifts and supports breasts of all sizes and shapes. For larger breasts, we recommend using our uncut roll as you can cut your desired length to suit your unique size.

Most instances of skin irritations are a result of too much stretch being applied. The most common areas of the body when this problem arises is for the shoulder or knee joint, because there is a lot of movement through the joint. The second most likely cause of a skin irritation is when the SKINES Body Tape has been removed too aggressively. SKINES Body Tape sticks well, but it does come off quite easily if you are careful. PLEASE DON’T USE THE “BAND-AID” TECHNIQUE OF “GRIP AND RIP”.
When using any type of adhesive tape on the skin, most skin irritation occurs when the skin is subject to traction force with an aggressive removal technique. SKINES Body Tape comes off more easily when it is wet, and we recommend peeling the tape back on itself SLOWLY, in the direction of hair growth (to avoid a waxing effect guys – the girls usually know this!), and if possible, whilst supporting the skin behind the tape as it is gently eased away. If you, or your skin, is particularly sensitive, then apply some oil over the tape before removing it and the oil will break down the adhesive and make the removal much easier.
