THE SHORT ANSWER IS YES!!
It can be easy to assume that a tanning lotion is not necessary when using a sunbed. You might even not like taking the time to apply it or how it feels, but it all comes down to keeping your skin protected, in a healthy condition and to the kind of results you want to achieve.
Indoor tanning lotions protect and nourish your skin for a better and longer lasting tan. Not only will using them make you reach a glowing color faster and easier, but they will also improve your skin's health overall. Indoor tanning lotions contain vitamins and nutrients that are vital for the skin, plus hydrating particles that keep your skin tight, wrinkle-free and prevent it from becoming dry and itchy.
Bear in mind that dry skin reflects UV light, so if you are not using an indoor tanning lotion, you can be wasting up to 50% of your tanning session! We want you to start achieving that color the moment your session starts!
A FEW TIPS TO PICK THE PERFECT TANNING LOTION
Decide if you want a bronzing component in your lotion or not. A bronzer will enhance your tan and result in instant gratification when you step out of the bed. Bronzers can be natural enhancements or a DHA developing color that continues to work after you leave the salon.
Decide if you want a melanin enhancing ingredient in your lotion. These can be bronzer free lotions that help the skin produce more color naturally.
Do not be afraid of all bronzers. Some bronzers in our lotions are actually clear and will not leave any staining behind.
Check the scent of the lotion first! You wouldn’t want to invest your money on a professional indoor tanning lotion if you can’t stand the smell once it is on your skin!
Are you a cream or lotion person? Lotions come in a variety of consistencies; they work just the same, so this is a matter of personal preferences.
Using the same product over and over can reduce results. Ask your Spa Consultant which switch up product will compliment what you currently have!
Always use a professional product for your face as the skin is delicate and should be treated as such with a product designed for it.
Using a tanning lotion can help you see results 60% faster, will reduce the possibility of overexposure, produce better color results, and allow your tan to last longer between visits. However, it is recommended always to choose a professional tanning lotion instead of a commercial,over-the-counter one, as those don’t have the same effectiveness and ingredients to maximize your tanning results and extend its life.
