COMPETITION TAN

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you follow these instructions to get the best result.  You should start your tanning preparation 7 days before your show.

WEEK BEFORE

  • 7 DAYS BEFORE:   Start EXFOLIATING everyday.  Use a loofah or an exfoliating mitt in the shower or bath with a body scrub lotion.  Gently scrub your entire body to remove dead or flaky skin cells.  This provides a fresh top layer of skin, giving you a more even tan.  Pay special attention to dry areas such as knees, ankles, feet, hands and elbows.  We recommended Jan Tana Skin Prep available for purchase in our SHOP.
  • 7 DAYS BEFORE:  MOISTURIZE your full body at least once a day – twice is better.  Pay special attention to dry areas like knees, ankles, feet, hands and elbows.  This will avoid the tan “sticking” to these areas and giving them a darker or orange look.  Your skin will be naturally dehydrated and dry due to your diet, so it important that moisturize as much as possible.
  • 3 DAYS BEFORE:  WAX your entire body.  Your pores need time to close prior to your tanning session.  Stop using any deodorant under your arms.  Yes.. we know that it is difficult in humidity!  Deodorant will turn your tan green.
  • 2 DAYS BEFORE:  SHAVE your entire body if you have not waxed.  You should shave 24 hours before any tanning.  Exfoliate thoroughly in the evening and moisturize as much as possible throughout the day.

BASE TAN

  • SHOWER and SHAVE at least 4 hours before your first tanning session.
  • DO NOT use any moisturizer, body lotions, perfumes or deodorant and do not wear any makeup.  These will act as a barrier for your tan.
  • WEAR VERY lose dark clothing to your session.  Avoid elastic waste bands and tight T-shirts.  Wear flip-flops and not socks and trainers.
  • We provide disposable underwear for your tanning session.  For men, you can wear your own briefs, but please make sure they are smaller than those you will be wearing on stage.  The solution will not stain your clothes and washes out.
  • Your Tan Technician will advice how long you leave your base tan on to set.  This is usually between 4-6 hours.
  • Stay COOL & DRY while your tan sets.  This means no working out so plan carefully!
  • After 4-6 hours, you should SHOWER in COOL water.
  • DO NOT use any body soap or conditioner.
  • MOISTURIZE your full body especially dry areas like your feet, hands and elbows.
  • Once you have rinsed off your base tan you are now free to exercise as normal

COMP DAY

  • Have a light SHOWER only.   Lightly pat yourself dry.  Do not rub.
  • Lightly SHAVE if you have to.  It is best to avoid it on competition day
  • DO NOT use any moisturizer, body lotions, perfumes or deodorant and do not wear any makeup.  These will act as a barrier for your tan.
  • Wear VERY LOOSE clothing to your session.  Avoid elastic waste bands and tight T-shirts and long sleeves.  Wear flip-flops and not socks and trainers.
  • We provide disposable underwear again your tanning session.  For men, you can wear your own briefs, but please make sure they are smaller than those you will be wearing on stage.  DO NOT wear the briefs, shorts or bikini that you will be competing in on stage.
  • Stay COOL & DRY after your tanning sessions until your stage appearance.
  • You can pump-up as normal 30 minutes after your tan.
  • Our team will be backstage for any touch-ups in case of accidents or you sweat too much.
  • If you have purchased a TANNING PACKAGE it includes full body GLAZING.  Please ensure you report to the TANNING AREA at least 30 MINS before your showtime for this.
  • DO NOT use baby oil, cooking oils or sun oil.  These will strip your tan and make it patchy an runny.  We use Jan Tana Hi-Def glaze that is designed not to impact your tan.

VERY IMPORTANT:    Give us smile in the Tanning Room 🙂

AFTER SHOW

  • So the shows is over and you want to get rid of your tan!
  • Take LONG HOT BATH in lots of BABY OIL and scrub your skin with a loofah/exfoliating mitt whilst in the bath.  Second best is to take a long hot shower.
  • When you get out of the bath or shower, cover yourself in baby oil while you are still wet.  Leave it to sit for a few minutes.
  • Rub the baby oil off with a towel to remove excess tan.
  • You will be left with a natural glow for approx 4 days.  Exfoliating daily will help to remove it quicker.
