You have done all the hard work and you are ready to show it off on-stage, or in that amazing photo shoot you booked.
As a competitor myself, I know what hard work you have put into your training and cut, and I take great pride in making sure you are going to feel your best on stage.
But, before we get there, it is important your skin prep is as on point as your physique. The success of your spray tan is as much skin prep as the skill of your spray tan artist. Even more so since you are leaning down and by the time you get to your tan, you may be a bit dehydrated and ad not getting the same nutrition as before in order to make your gains pop. Let's go over your skin care prep to make sure your tan will look it's best on stage, or in your photos.
Starting at least a month before your competition
Avoid a sun burn before your event. We always recommend wearing sunscreen to protect your skin.
In order to make this post informative for all competitors, not just ones we are tanning, We are going to break this down assuming you are entering a Saturday show. If your event is a different day, adjust the days according to the appropriate end date.
You likely need to be tanned the day before, and the day of the show. Most shows have an expectation of how the competitors will look under the stage lights in general, a dark tan provides the best result. A spray the day of the show also ensure you look perfect when your number is called.
Starting the Monday on the week of your competition, (peek week) through Thursday.
Assuming you are being tanned Friday... (It is best if you can complete these at least 4 hours prior to your tan time.)
(if you are being tanned Saturday, please follow the Friday instructions Saturday)
What to bring for your spray tan.
Our recommendations if you are in a hotel room:
Competition spray tan can stain surfaces. Hotels can and will charge a fee for any items in a room you may damage with your tan. The following is a list of things you can do to prevent damage in your room, but remember it is up to you to ensure you treat the property you are stying at with respect. your tanner is not responsible for any staining that may occur.
As always, feel free to direct any questions to me here in the comments, or to Beautycooperative@gmail.com.
