competition, fitness + bikini prep info

For absolute best results, we highly recommends that fair skin competitors tan the day before the competition and the day of the competition. We offer 2 coats for each application to ensure you are stage appropriate as the stage lighting does lighten you up. Touch ups are fixing small smudges, water marks, lightened areas. Email us at


    BEST TO START THIS ON THE MONDAY BEFORE YOUR SHOW -Gently exfoliate your skin every day -Moisturize your skin everyday -Pay extra attention to your elbows, knees, hands, feet + heels The more dead layers you scrub off, the deeper into your skin the sunless solution will absorb. This will also ensure a flawless fade after your competition.
    THIS APPLIES TO BOTH MEN AND WOMEN -No exfoliants that contain oils -No lotion after you exfoliate and shower -Ensure all shaving is done 24hrs prior to your appointment -If waxing, ensure all waxing is done 3-4 days prior to your appointment as your skin may still have wax or your skin may be irritated or sensitive -Apply clear nail polish to your natural nails to avoid them going yellow. This applies to hands and toes.
    THIS APPLIES TO BOTH MEN AND WOMEN -Do not wear ANY deoderant -Do not wear ANY moistrizer/creams/lotios/oils/perfume/cologne/body spray on your skin -Bring an umbrella if its raining the day of your appointment as the rain will ruin your tan -Bring flip-flops to wear/leave to leave in after your appointment -Do not wear any RED as the red dye in the cotton may turn your tan GREEN. -Arrive to your appointment in loose fitting/oversized dark clothes -Draw string pants, sweat pants, lounge wear, are best for tan development -Do NOT wear jeans, tight pants, yoga pants.

Athletes, always make sure your Spray Tan Techs are Certified and Trained in Performance Tanning. A competition tan is much more complex than a regular spray tan.  Performance tanning solution is a specialized product that is much different from the type of tanning solutions that are regularly used in spray tanning salons and studios. Using any other type of solution will not produce a final colour that is dark enough under the bright stage lighting. You absolutely must use a tanning solution which is intended for body building/fitness competitions.

good luck competitors!
