Suggested Competition Schedule: A majority of bodybuilding events are held on Saturdays, with this being said the contestant needs to do a color trial run 30 days prior to the event to insure everything about their tan is perfect. Do NOT test the week of the event. Remember these athletes have trained for 8 months to have these bodies, if not a lifetime!
After testing the individual results 30 days prior, we recommend the following competition spray schedule for a Saturday event:
- Thursday (8 am) 1st deep full body spray
- Friday (7 am) warm water rinse*
- Friday (8 am) 2nd deep full body spray
- Saturday (7 am) warm water rinse *
- Saturday (8 am) 3rd full body spray
*warm water only rinsing between spray sessions is recommended to avoid any unwanted stripping of color.
Immediately prior to event: the contestant can apply additional color where needed with Black Out™ Lotion (8 oz tube). They can also apply the Shine™ muscle defining spray prior to stepping to the stage for added sheen under lights.
Post event we recommend a deep exfoliating treatment such as Sea Coral Salt Scrub to combat DHA drying effects and to remove unwanted color.
