Directions For Overnight Competition Color Base Coat: SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. Apply to clean skin. Use the attached applicator mitt or an HVLP sprayer. Spray directly onto applicator mitt, rub over desired body areas with lighter strokes around hairlines, knees, elbows and ankles. To Airbrush, pour 3-4 oz. of color into airbrush cup. Spray from the top of your body down in a horizontal direction, making sure to cover all areas. Dry body with air from the HVLP airbrush gun to speed up the process.
Note: You’ll get an instant tan, which will serve as a guide for even application and will darken considerably within 3-5 hours. Allow 30 minutes to dry before direct contact with clothes or water. Reapply for a deeper tan. In the morning rinse off the excess color allowing the natural tan to show.
Tanning Tip: Prior to application, wash entire body with Get Buffed® Pre-Tan Exfoliator for maximum darkness. The instant color in this product is designed to work as a guide coat for the tanning complexes in the product. Although it does provide instant color it is designed to be rinsed off after 24 hours. Tan will darken with each application. Avoid using antiperspirants or lotion prior to your application of Pro Tan® Overnight Competition Color Base Coat.
Note: The number of applications you need depends on how dark your natural skin tone is, how dark you want to be, and how well your skin absorbs the color. Typically bikini/figure/fitness/physique competitors with light to medium skin tone need 2 applications. For bodybuilders, we recommend 3 applications. More than 2 coats in one day is not recommended and usually does not get you any darker. Starting 2 days before your show is ideal.
Warnings: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful side effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
