tan1-162x300As a former figure competitor and fitness model myself, I understand the importance of a dark, flawless tan to achieve success on stage. I have been developing my knowledge and skills with spray tan application since 2005. Through trial and error, and trying different products, equipment and techniques, spray tanning has become a large part of my business along with posing suit design.

Supported by Mike & Julie Davies, among many other experts in the field, I faithfully use the Jan Tana line of products. I use high quality airbrush equipment to deliver a fast, easy and stress free experience for your tanning application. I have assisted hundreds of competitors achieve their “winning” tan!

It is so rewarding to play a role in a competitor’s journey to the stage. I take such pride in my work to make sure all of my clients are provided with excellent customer service and the attention they deserve. Whatever your needs are, I will meet them! I encourage you to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your personal and competitive goals!

Warm Regards,

NPC Julie Palmer Ultimate Showdown – Dayton, OH – June 2


How many coats will I need?

Most competitors receive 3-4 coats to achieve the proper dark tan. It varies depending on skin tone and the division of competition.

How long does it take?

The actual spray tanning session takes about 20-30 minutes for the application and another 20 minutes to complete the drying process. You will feel sticky for about an hour until completely dry.

What do I wear?

Wear old, loose fitting clothing. It is also suggested that you do not put your posing suit on, or any tight, restrictive clothing, after having your tanning application.

How do I prep my skin?

For the best results, spend the week prior to competition moisturizing and exfoliating your body. I recommend the Jan Tana moisturizing lotion and skin prep exfoliator products. The day of your spray tan, DO NOT moisturize, ONLY EXFOLIATE! If you choose to use a tanning bed for a base tan, do not burn! We cannot fix peeling skin. Do not apply any make-up, deodorant or perfume/cologne before or after your spray tan application.

It is suggested that you shave atleast 8 hours before your spray tan, preferably the night before. You cannot shave or shower after your color is applied until after your competition. The better condition your skin is in, the better the product will absorb, and the more flawless your tan will look.
