Preparing your skin for your Fitness Model Show
You will want to start prepping your skin 6-3 weeks out from show date
The following is information on how to prep your skin in the lead up to the show. you will need:
Exfoliator gloves (they are usually £1 for shops)
Exfoliator scrub (you will find scrub at most supermarkets)
Face wipes - ladies (to remove any makeup ahead of first layer of tan)
Socks - Gentleman to protect your manly area
Then follow the below instructions:
How to use an exfoliator
- get in the shower - turn the shower on ;)
- put gloves on
- put some scrub on to the gloves
- GENTLY exfoliate your body (gently you are not trying to take your skin off, just the lose dry skin)
- exfoliate whole body and focus on areas like ankles, knees and elbows
ALL BODY HAIR MUST BE REMOVED
We recommend that if you plan to wax that you do so 7 days before show day. This will allow your skin a chance to recover and for hair follicles to close.
If you are planning to use a hair removal cream, please be sure to test the product in advance to make sure that you don't have an adverse reaction. If using this method of hair removal please remove hair 2-3 days before show day
If you are shaving then please do this the day before you get your first layer of tan
Please note the sugar waxing is the recommended method of removing body hair, as it is kind to your skin. Waxing removes the hair better than Shaving will.
Day of tan
No deodorant, perfumes or body sprays as this can turn the tan green
No moisturisers as this can stop your tan developing properly
Nail polish clear for you boys as stops your nails staining
(ladies we assume you will have your nails painted for the big day)
In the tanning booth
Boys bring your sock
After your tan tan
Loose clothing dark colours just in case of transfer
Ladies we recommend a dressing gown
Dark sheets or loose clothing in bed ..... If you like to cuddle yourself at night SOCKS on hands .... Boys and girls you don't want tanned hands or a messed up tan
Also cling film around the toilet to stop any transfer of tan. Or pop a squat, no better time to practice.
When using the toilet AIM, that goes for you too ladies.
And that is how you need to prep your skin for a show.
