Tan lock is applied over your competition tan to lock in colour, resist moisture and avoid any smudging of your tan during development time.
*On rare occasions when Muscle Tan is applied it may through a red tone due to your clients ph level. Bikini Tan or Base Tan can be used in this circumstance.
* A base coat can be applied 1 day prior to your competition tan. The tanning technician will choose from one of the many tans in the Black Magic collection.
During your comp tan's development time
Please ensure you follow any recommendations given by your tanning technician.
Avoid water, heat, exercise and any tasks that may cause your body to overheat and perspire. If you need to wash your hands try to use a sanitising hand wash versus water.
Avoid exposing yourself to different temperatures as this too will cause you to perspire particularly on very hot days.
DAY 2 APPLICATION
On Day 2 of your competition tanning process you have two options depending on your category and personal schedule.
DAY TWO OPTION 1:
The next morning do not rinse your base tan. Apply additional coats, dry well between coats then apply Black Magic Tan Lock.
DAY TWO OPTION 2:
The next morning you can lightly rinse your body under a tepid shower for 30 seconds, and pat dry. You are now ready for additional coats to be added. Dry well between coats then apply Black Magic Tan Lock.
Normally a Bikini competitor will have 1-2 coats of competition tan applied depending on the level of darkness desired or required by different federations. Always check with your coach so you can inform your tanning technician.
