It’s crucial to have a Flawless Tan on stage

It’s one of the most important elements of a competition. However, with so many different services and products to choose from, choosing the best color and the spray tanner has become a challenge. Here’s some expert guidance from Marilyn Spatola, Owner Liquid Sun Rayz USA on how to choose a reputable competition tanning company.

Choose an expert in Show Tanning

When a spray tanner advertises that they’ll be offering ‘competition spray tanning’ at bodybuilding / figure shows, don’t automatically assume that it will be an expert in show tanning. Competition spray tans are different from a regular spray tan you would get at your local tanning or beauty salon.

Ask questions

  1. Does the company have a website geared towards competition tanning?
  2. Do they offer skin preparation instructions?
  3. Do they have before and after pictures of their colour?
  4. Do they offer backstage assistance, ie touch ups, glazing?
  5. How many competition shows have they done?
  6. Do they have testimonies/references?
  7. How does the product hold up on stage?
  8. How private is the spray tan area?
  9. Do they have male or female spray tan technicians?

One of the most important decisions

Don’t assume a less expensive company will be comparable to a more established, experienced one. Competitive bodybuilding is a costly sport, one that takes countless hours of training, diet and discipline. Tanning is one of the most important things when you step out on stage; don’t let an inexperienced spray tan company ruin your chances! Those that are serious about what they do will have this knowledge and training to work with competitors in this very specialist sport.

Remove the stress

Most competitors’ will agree that the tanning process is one of the most stressful and dreaded parts of their contest prep, yet it’s the one aspect of their prep which they can control. It is the job of a reputable tanning company to alleviate that stress, and to make the experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

Choose wisely, ask for pictures and don’t be afraid to ask questions!
