At Image Sun we welcome all Body Building & Bikini Competitors We realize that one of the most important things prior to stepping on stage for your event… is your TAN. Spray tanning is the finishing touch to months in the gym and the final step before going on stage. All competitors must schedule a tanning time slot at least two days prior to an event. Organization is the key to guarantee all competitors receive the tan they deserve!
Before your Session
Shower: We recommend showering before your arrival for optimal results. Avoid using Dove or any “moisturizing” soap. The ingredients will clog your pores and leave uneven patches.
Manicure and Pedicure: Due to the strength of the product, a clear coat on your fingernails and toenails prior to your first appointment is necessary.
Exfoliate: This process will remove dead cells from the skin’s surface to help in the natural renewal process. We suggest a product that is designed specifically for sunless tanning
Shaving/Waxing: Any regular waxing or shaving should be done 24 hours prior to your spray
Cosmetics: To insure color and fade, please Avoid using the following prior to your Sunless/Airbrush session:
What to Wear
Clothing: We provide our guests with disposables to wear during their Customized Airbrush. We recommend that you wear dark, loose fitting clothing or wear swim trunks that have the same coverage as the trunks that you will use for your competition. Turn clothes inside out so you do not get seam lines. Wear open toe shoes when weather permits. If it is raining, we recommend wearing long sleeves, loose pants, socks, shoes/rain gear.
NJ State Law requires that undergarments be worn during an Airbrush Session.
Important! You cannot have any contact with water. If you want to work out, you cannot sweat profusely and must avoid cardio. The color will not take to your skin if you do any cardio. Avoid touching any area that is sprayed. Your feet may feel sticky but this is normal.
Showering – Cannot shower until right before your next appointment. Typically we recommend if the competition is on Saturday, come in Thursday night and shower Friday right before coming in with a quick cool water rinse. No soap or shampoo can be used! After showering, you can air dry or pat dry. After the last session, you cannot shower until the competition is over. You cannot use baby oil or PAM because this will make you sweat and may jeopardize your color.
