To get the best from Liquid Sun Rayz tanning products, follow these instructions.

Prior to any application of tan, please observe ALL the Liquid Sun Rayz skin preparation instructions and also paying attention to applying a barrier cream or non-fragranced moisturizer to hands, elbows, knees and feet to prevent the tan taking too much on these drier areas.

Gents, you may also like to apply clear nail varnish to finger and toe nails to prevent tan staining as nails are very porous.

The better condition your skin is in, the better the tanning product will absorb, the more flawless your tan will look and you will have a more even fade after the competition. On the day you apply the tan, do not use moisturisers, aftershaves, perfumes, deodorant* or spray hair products. After your tan wear loose dark clothing and flip flops. It is also recommended that you do not put on any other tight restrictive clothing after having your colour applied due it ‘damaging’ and marking the tan. Posing suits should not be worn until after your final coat of tan is dry.

Prior to applying Competition Bronzer, make sure you have an old sheet or towels to prevent the tan marking any flooring.

Tanning thongs and the mop cap are disposable and the sticky feet will prevent the tan staining the soles of your feet; wear these until the tan has dried.

The Liquid Sun Rayz Competition Bronzer is sprayed onto the skin and rolled out using the application pad or applied by a professional spray tanning technician. If uneven colouring happens, apply some of the bronzer to the pad and gently smooth out and rework the tan.

TWO coats of Liquid Sun Rayz Competition Bronzer is to be applied the evening before the competition in quick succession; about 20-30 minutes, or when touch dry, between coats. A third coat and/or touch ups and repairs can be applied, if required, on the day of the show. If in doubt about your tan and what you should do you can consult with Louise, Liquid Sun Rayz Europe Trainer and Technician on 07766 836693.

Apply Liquid Sun Rayz Enhanced Definition Posing Glaze backstage before pumping up applying it lightly over the body to accentuate definition. Do not apply it too generously; there is ample in one bottle to use for several competitions.

*NB: If you use a 48/72hr deodorant product you need to stop using this about a week before your tan appointment as it leaves a residue even after washing which may turn tan green. Just use a regular deodorant during this time.
