WHERE DO YOU GET THE SERVICES DONE?

PREP FOR A COMPETITION SPRAY TAN
1.) For maximum results, start exfoliating your entire body gently with RENEWING SUNLESS EXFOLIATOR (do not scrub harshly) and moisturize every day the week prior to your Competition Spray Tan appointment. It is best to start moisturizing on Monday. Be careful not to scrub too hard when exfoliating, as you may make tiny scratches on your skin; the color will adhere to those scratches and turn very dark! We recommend using RENEWING SUNLESS EXFOLIATOR for best results pay special attention to your knees, elbows, hands, feet and heels. You can use a loofah, exfoliating glove or exfoliating towel with a body wash BALANCING SHOWER CLEANSER. Moisturize after your shower. The better condition your skin is in, the better your tan will look.
2.) Shaving, Waxing, Manicure and Pedicure should be done 24 hours before your Spray Tan appointment.
For better male muscle definition, it's best to shave all body hair.
*****Using a tanning bed or laying out in the sun to obtain a base tan can affect your spray tan by causing it to peel. We can only do our best to fix peeling skin; therefore, it is best to avoid tanning beds.
DAY OF THE COMPETITION SPRAY TAN
Day of Getting Spray Tanned...DO NOT MOISTURIZE!!!
1.) GENTLY EXFOLIATE ONLY! Make sure to rinse off thoroughly.
2.) DO NOT put on any makeup, lotion, deodorant, perfume/cologne before or after your Competition Spray Tan application. These products will affect your tan and the deodorant will turn your armpits green!
3.) Come to us with clean, dry skin wearing dark, loose fitting clothing and flip flops. An oversized shirt and oversized drawstring (non-elastic) waistband style sweatpants made of SOFT COTTON OR POLYESTER BLEND are best because they glide over your skin and won't ruin the development of the bronzer. Avoid stiff fabrics!! Tops that “easily” pull OVER your head are best, button up tops are okay too. do not wear jeans, tennis shoes or socks!
4.) Women can be sprayed nude. If you have long hair, please remember to bring a tie back to keep hair off your shoulders and neck. We will provide a hair cap for you to wear, as well.
5.) Men may wear something smaller than their posing suit if being sprayed nude is uncomfortable. For the best results, it is easier for us to spray without posing trunks. You can wear a sock to prevent tan lines.
6.) A typical Competition Spray Tan application takes about 10/15 minutes for both the application and dry time. You will feel slightly sticky for about an hour until completely dry. We will dry you as much as possible.
7.) After your first coat/color has been applied, please plan to sleep in your loose, oversized clothing (long loose pants and a long sleeve t-shirt) until the morning. This will eliminate any hand marks or skin-on-skin contact on your body during sleep. DO NOT SLEEP NAKED OR IN SHORTS AND TANK TOP!!!! Be somewhat conscious of where/how you position yourself. For example, you don’t want your palms to be tanned or handprints on your body, so try to keep your hands away from your body. Try not to make skin-to-skin contact to avoid uneven markings.Keep in mind that holding your arms in a bent position may create slight unevenness on the inner elbow. It will look like a white diamond shape.
Please bring an extra pair of sheets for the hotel bedding so you do not stain or get charged for damaged bedding. Also carry this sheet with you for your car (to sit on) and for sitting in chairs at the venue.
8.) DO NOT put on any deodorant, perfume/cologne until AFTER you rinse off and that's only if you don't need any touch ups. You will have a choice to rinse off in the morning OR not and we can do touch ups the morning of your competition.
*****Please discuss the use of ANY other tanning products used BEFORE your appointment with us. It is not good to mix different competition products. We are NOT responsible for poor results with mixing of products that we are unaware of. These specific skin prep instructions are to ensure you receive a flawless tan for your competition. We compete too and know what a good competition tan is. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding these instructions...203.927.0600 (call or text)
If, during your Competition Spray Tan appointment, it has been determined that you have not followed our skin prep instructions, client will assume ALL risks.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TANNING
You will get darker as the solution sets in to your skin and the hours go by. Please avoid perspiring after your appointments! Bring an umbrella if there is a remote chance of rain! Plan your day accordingly. Be careful brushing your teeth, as the toothpaste has sulfate and will leave marks on your face. It is best to be completely covered when you sleep! You don’t know what you do in your sleep. If you rest your hand on your stomach, etc., you will wake up with a brown hand and a handprint on your stomach. It is best to wear long, loose pants, like pajama bottoms, and a long sleeve pajama top to bed. Cover up from wrist to ankle! If you are driving in a car, place a sheet over the seat to sit on it.
Find out at the meeting when you will be going on stage. This will help us decide when you should come see us for “touch ups”, if needed. We will fix any little marks or mistakes you may have. You will look perfect when you leave to go to pre-judging. Please remember to be aware of your surroundings and the others around you, as well. Try not to bump into people, as you may get marks. WATER IS NOT YOUR FRIEND!!! BE CAREFUL WHEN DRINKING WATER OR WHEN NEAR A SINK OR TOILET!
POST TANNING INFO AND MORNING OF COMPETITION TIPS
* Women, we will tan your face. If you are only getting one tanning session (tanning on Friday only), please wipe your face well the following morning using a damp cloth or a baby wipe. This will give you a clean face for makeup application and avoids a “dirty, ashy” look.
* If you eat grapefruit, lemon, or anything that is juicy, drape a towel around your neck so NONE of the juice squirts on you.
* Do not apply deodorant!!! Even after we have tanned you, your armpits will turn green until after you shower. Do not shower before the show is over unless you are instructed to do so by our staff. You can use baby wipes to refresh private areas and dust baby powder under your arms ,if necessary.
* If there are minimal spots not near your posing suit that need touching up, come to us with your suit on. If, however, you do need touch-ups near your suit, please come to us with your suit, bracelets, etc. off. If you are coming to us without your posing suit on, please wear your loose clothing so we can move as quickly as possible and get everyone taken care of in a timely manner.
* If, for some reason, you have an unforeseen incident and your tan is excessively disrupted when you wake up, (i.e, excessive sweating, etc.) call us immediately at 203.927.0600.
* On the day of the show, we will have all competitors sign in with us for full body Competition Spray Tans, we will spray you according to who goes on stage first.
**WARNING: USE ONLY THE PRODUCTS WE RECOMMEND, AS ANY OTHER PRODUCTS/BRANDS MAY INTERFERE WITH THE TANNING PROCESS.
*****After your competition, avoid all loofah/loofah gloves, pads and sponges when showering if you want to keep your tan.
