Tanning Lotion FAQ's

Why use a tanning product?

There are significant benefits to using indoor tanning products. Indoor tanning products contain key ingredients like Aloe Vera, Tyrosine, Vitamins, Natural Oils, Botanical and Herbal Extracts, and Minerals to increase the intensity and effectiveness of your tanning time through magnification, hydration, and skin conditioning.

When should I apply tanning lotion?

Most tanners apply their indoor tanning lotion immediately before tanning to maximize the product’s magnification, hydration, and skin conditioning properties.

What is a Tingle lotion?

Tingle is an ingredient added to lotion, usually niacin or Vitamin B, that can help clients achieve quicker and darker results than if they just used a regular lotion. The ingredients in a tingle lotion increase the microcirculation and oxidation of blood in the surface layers of the skin. Blood also carries melanin to the surface of the skin. Since your skin needs oxygen to tan and the activation of melanin is what is needed to maximize that tan, the more melanin at the surface of the skin, the darker you will get.

I have reached a point where I can’t get any darker, what can I do?

You have reached what is called a “tanning plateau”. You must adjust your tanning program within the guidelines of developing a healthy tan. To increase magnification and intensification properties it is suggested to move from a tanning product used to stimulate melanin and build a base tan, to one that penetrates the skin surface with selective oils, nutrients, vitamins, minerals and amino acids for dark tanning. No matter what product you use during your tanning session keep in mind that it is vital during the plateau stages to heavily moisturize and condition the skin.

My face and legs don’t tan as well as the rest of my body. What should I do?

Moist skin tans better than dry skin. The face and legs are naturally low in moisture and become dryer with normal activities. It is important to keep these areas constantly hydrated during tanning.

What can I do between tanning sessions to get better results and maintain my tan?

Since it actually takes 2-5 days for a tan to develop, it is important to continue your tanning program between your tanning sessions with hydrating and tan extending products. These products are specifically designed to provide essential moisture to the skin after tanning and allow you to build a healthy tan.
