Tanning products help to improve the aspect of the skin of those athletes who want to obtain the best results in their competitions. It is not a product that will help you improve your sport performance, rather, it will provide a highlight your muscles. Moreover, do not forget that you have to meet the current regulation in fitness competitions.
A tanned body stands out and shows the physical definition and shape of fitness athletes. It is a process that demands specific parameters that should not be overlooked if you want to achieve the perfect color for your skin and avoid any issue with the regulations of the competition.
These are products that you will need in order to get ready for any competition. It is advisable not to use them on the same day of the contest for the first time, try them before to see if the color suits you. Moreover, there are also several techniques that we are going to see now.
Competition tanning regulation
The regulation established by the IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness) demands a series of conditions when it comes to using tanning products for official competitions:
- The product that is used to apply the color has to be natural
- If the tan of a participant can be removed just by touching the skin, he or she will not be allowed to participate
- Self-tanning products and those that have glitter, chrome or pearly effect are forbidden in official contests by the IFBB
How do I use a tanning product?
When it comes to using this product that has been purchased in a specialized store, the best thing to do would be to prepare the skin previously. First of all, scrub your body two weeks before the competition. This will remove the dead cells from the skin that block the absorption of the color. Pay special attention to the elbows, knees, hands and heels, which tend to be drier and have more dead cells.
Hydration is also important, even more so when there is only one week left for the competition. Hydrate all your skin in order to avoid color patches. At this point, you have already scrubbed your skin two weeks before the competition, and you will do it once again a week before the big day.
You should stop hydrating your skin two days before, apart from avoiding any colognes, perfumes, or deodorants, since they can alter the original color of the product in some areas of your body. You should apply the first layer of tan the day before the competition, and repeat the process 30 minutes later.
It is advisable to apply the third layer on the same morning of the day you compete, so that you will achieve a homogeneous color, as long as you have followed the previous steps.
