SKIN PREPARATION

SKIN PREPARATION - 2 weeks before the competition

Skin Preparation

In order to maximize the results of your tan, we strongly recommend that you follow these following steps to prepare your skin

2 weeks before the competition :

● Exfoliate your skin every other day

● Recommended product: St-Ives Exfoliating Apricot Scrub

● Moisturize your skin every day

● Recommended product: Vaseline intensive care UNSCENTED

● We strongly advise not to use a tanning bed to avoid sunburn. If this happens your skin will take a long time to regenerate before the competition.

1 week before the competition :

● Exfoliate your skin every other day

● Moisturize the skin with emphasis on the armpits, elbows, knees and tops of the feet because these parts of the body are always more dry than other places

● If you have skin problems, we recommend using a shampoo called NIZORAL on your whole body! Let the product set during a few minutes before rinsing completely

INSTRUCTION FOR HAIR REMOVAL :

● If you choose waxing, we suggest you do it 7 days BEFORE the competition.

● Be careful not to burn the skin as these burn marks will remain visible despite the coats of tan

2 days before the Tan :

● Do not use deodorant in any form. The deodorant will turn your tan green under your armpits

● Do not use perfume anymore. The composition of your perfume will turn your tan green

EVE OF THE COMPETITION - 1st layer of Spray Tan

BEFORE YOU RECEIVE YOUR TAN :

● It is important to take a shower and wash your hair BEFORE your appointment

● You should only use the recommended products (Palmolive Soap + Deaf Bicarbonate) to prepare your skin to receive tan

● The use of other products (Ex: Dove soap) may create a barrier that does not allow the tan to adhere to your skin

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PULP :

● You have to mix together the Palmolive soap + the baking soda to form a paste, which you apply on your whole body

● Afterwards, rinse thoroughly so that there is no residue that remains on your skin

● Do not moisturize the skin after showering

INSTRUCTION FOR SHAVING :

Men & Women :

● We recommend that you shave MINIMUM 24 hours before receiving your tan

● If you shave the day of your tan, be sure to run cold water over the shaved area to close skin pores. This helps to reduce the small brown dots that may appear after receiving your tan

For men :

● Any area covered with hair must be shaved

● You must shave armpits, arms, legs, chest and back

● If this is your first time, we recommend that you try the chosen technique 2 weeks before to test it on your skin and thus avoid the last minute burns

For women :

● Any part of the body not covered by the bikini should be shaved

● All regions covered with down even in small quantities should be shaved (Armpits, forearms, belly, lower back, legs as well as the bikini area)

AFTER YOUR TAN :

● Wear DARK & LOOSE COLOR clothes

● AVOID RED-BLUE-GREEN-YELLOW colors for clothes. Pigmentation of these colors may turn your tan green

● NO NEW CLOTHING! Chemical compounds used in garments can turn your tan green

● AVOID elastic bands around wrists, waist and ankles

● No stockings

● No underwear

● No bath, shower, SPA or sauna

● Be careful when washing your hands, face or brush your teeth

● Sleep dressed to avoid skin-to-skin contact, that will make your tan disappear (long pants and long sleeves)

● Avoid dropping a training bag, a handbag and a lunch box on your shoulders

USEFUL RECOMMENDATIONS:

● We strongly suggest that you bring & use your personal sheets to avoid staining the one at the hotel

● We also recommend bringing your bath towels to avoid using the ones at the hotel

AT ALL TIMES :

● Leave the AIR CONDITIONING on when you return to your hotel room, after receiving your tan to avoid getting hot and lose your tan

FOR WOMEN :

● We advise that you use Styrofoam cups when you use the washrooms to minimize any splashing and thus preserve your tan

KEEP YOUR TAN

KEEP YOUR TAN

If you want to keep your tan after your competition

Steps to follow :

  1. Take a bath or shower, let yourself soak in the water for a while without rubbing
  1. Take a second bath or shower! Use a mild soap rubbing gently with your hands in circular motions. CAUTION: Do not use a massage glove, you risk creating lighter areas
  1. Dry by gently tapping your skin with a soft towel
  1. Apply moisturizer! Use the same one you used to make your skin preparation. This will allow you to keep your tan about 5-7 days longer!
  1. Watch out for drier areas, such as armpits, elbows & knees, these tend to keep the dark brown color longer! So, don’t forget to hydrate them!
  1. Finally, avoid wearing light colored clothing the days following your competition, because the heat released by your body may transfer your tan on your clothes.
