TO USE: 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.
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.
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.
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.
