To prepare the skin for the best competition color, step by step!
Start with sharing your body, make sure you do not cut yourself, it will not be neat when color is added on. Shave first time about 1 ½ -2 weeks before the competition to see how your skin reacts ,shave again 1-2 days before you get your first layer of color , make sure you do not shave so early that you need to shave again before the competition because it irritates your skin and causes you to retain water.
Scrub the body easily! This should be done daily, 4-7 days before the competition. You may also have a so-called scrub glove to help, be very careful so you do not scrub too hard and damage the skin.
If you normally have a bit oilier skin you should not use body lotion on these days for the skin to come into its own. For those who have dry skin, you may need a slightly more moisturizing body lotion (moisturizer) to get skin elastic (but not a lot of fats and oils in it). And please do not use any deodorant before first layer of color.
Time to add the first layer: a shower and scrub one last time before first layer of color. Make sure you are dry before you start, do not use deodorant. The first 1-2 layers is day before the competition day, do not wear tight clothes after you been tanned.
We tan between 2-4 layers depending on your skin color, after you have received the first layers you can not shower and scrub unless we have given you orders to do that.
When it's time to compete, we will put on the right glaze,oil or posing gel 20-30 minutes before you are going on stage. Do not put oil yourselves. It can dissolve the color.
