Lately I have been getting many phone calls for bodybuilder spray tans and I wanted to quickly write a blog post on how to prepare for the bodybuilder spray tan.
First, I like to mention that I always get fresh new solution for each person that I spray tan because I want to make sure that I give a perfect tan with perfect color. Sometimes, when storing the solution too long, the bronzer can go green and this is why I don't like to store too much solution. Therefore please call me at least a week in advance to book your bodybuilder spray tan. I'm located in Studio City or on the border of Valley Village/Sherman Oaks. If urgency is important I can also do it within 2 days notice but I prefer 1 week advance notification to make sure I have enough time to order the fresh spray tanning solution. I can get any of the brands that you prefer and I usually like to recommend a brand once we talk about what skin type and tone you are.
I want to talk with you over the phone first to determine your skin type so I can tell you if we need to spray tan you 2 or 3 days in a row. Most fair skin types I have to spray tan for 3 days in order to get the skin dark enough. If I don't get you dark enough then you might loose points in your competition so it's important that you will be available for 2-3 days of spray tanning.
Before coming to your spray tan session, it's important that you shave or wax at least 1 day before your session and that you exfoliate your skin with a loofah or body brush. Also, make sure you do not wear any deodorant under your arm or otherwise you might turn green under your arms. Also no perfume or cologne and no makeup. Please bring loose fitting clothing and shoes with you.
You can keep the solution on a minimum of at least 8 hours but longer is better. Then shower, moisturize your body with a water based lotion and come back again for another spray tan. It's very important that you hydrate your skin every day cause the spray tan does not work very good on dry skin. This is why I recommend any water based lotion cause it absorbs quickly. Most competitions are on Saturdays so we should start spray tanning on Thursday, again on Friday and if needed right before the competition on Saturday morning.
Also, I know many bodybuilders like to go to tanning beds before to get a base tan however, my concern is that you will get a sunburn and then your skin can peel and even though I can spray over it, your skin will continue to peel and be white underneath and it will not look as good. Try to avoid this and just come for your bodybuilder spray tan cause the solution will get you dark enough.
Depending on your skin type, you might not look as natural in the day time or daylight but under stage light you will look really great. I know that my bodybuilder spray tans will look flawless and not blotchy. I know you will be very happy with results. And by the way, I do work till at least 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays so I am sure I can always fit you in.
