  • Step 1: Put on a pair of latex and powder free gloves.

  • Step 2: Gently pour Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat into a bowl. You can also spray Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat directly onto your skin.

  • Step 3: Using the supplied applicator mitt, put the mitt on and lightly dip it into the bowl of Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat. If you have sprayed Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat directly onto your body disregard this step.

  • Step 4: Starting from the ankles and working your way up to the neck, apply Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat in long, even, vertical strokes. Be sure to apply lighter strokes around hairlines, knees, elbows and ankles. After the legs and torso have been tanned, use the excess product on the applicator mitt to blend up the color on the neck and down on both the hands and feet.

    • 4a. Applying Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat to your Back:

      The back can be a tricky area to tan yourself, Pro TanŽ recommends getting assistance from your coach, a friend, family member, or significant other.


    • 4b. Applying Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat to your Face: Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat should only be applied to the face the day of your competition. Let it dry completely.

      Note: When applying Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Base Coat to your face be careful as to not get any in your eyes. Using a Q-Tip to tan under the eyes is recommended.

      Tanning Tip: Apply a small amount of lotion to your hands, feet, knees and elbows since those areas tend to absorb the color the easiest and you do not want them to become too dark.


  • Step 5: Let the tan dry for 5-10 minutes in a cool, dry environment. Do not stand in front of a fan, A/C unit, or use a blow-dryer to try and accelerate the drying process as this may cause your body to produce heat while trying to stay warm; which may cause the tan to run. If you are applying another coat of Pro TanŽ Overnight Competition Color Base Coat make sure to wait 4-6 hours so that the color fully develops.

    Tanning Tip: After applying your tan be sure to wear long, dark, loose fitting clothes. Avoid wearing strap clothing or carrying a backpack as it may smear the tan. Cotton clothing is preferred because it absorbs the color rather than push it around the body such as other materials like silk.
