Understanding Tanning Lotion

Lady Tanning on Beautiful BeachNothing quite beats the gorgeous, sun-kissed glow of the perfect tan, and the first step to a great tan is selecting the perfect tanning lotion.

Tanning lotions enhance the tanning process while keeping the skin moisturized and helping tanners achieve long lasting, deep tans.

Tanning products contain ingredients that keep your skin healthy and hydrated, and come in a variety of forms, from lotions to gels, oils, and sprays. Outdoor tanning lotions typically contain sunscreen while indoor lotions are intended for use in tanning beds.

Here are a few common tanning lotions to choose between for indoor tanning use.

Accelerating Lotions

Accelerating lotions help people new to tanning achieve their base tan. Accelerating lotions contain moisturizers to keep the skin hydrated and to help it tan quickly and hold the color for longer periods of time. These products typically lack bronzers and help a tan to develop naturally with a nice, even color. Starting off with an accelerating lotion allows the skin to adjust to tanning before you move into lotions with more ingredients and effects.

Bronzer Lotions

Bronzer lotions contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA) that changes the cells in your skin and gives you an instant tan. Bronzers are typically added to tanning products to darken the tan and enrich its color. Instant bronzer lotions wash away while natural bronzers include ingredients to help increase your melanin production. Self-tanning lotions may contain bronzers that help you avoid tanning streaks and added moisturizers leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Tingling Lotions

Tingling tanning lotions increase blood flow to the skin and are available in heated and cooled varieties. These tanning lotions speed up the skin’s repair process and thus causes the skin to tan faster. Tingling lotions are typically used by more experienced tanners as the lotion results in a mild tingling, reddening, and warming sensation of the skin and possible itching side effects. People with sensitive skin may want to avoid using this product.

What to Avoid After an Airbrush Tan

What to Avoid After an Airbrush Tan Believe it or not, the holiday season is getting closer and it’s time to start thinking about how you want to look when they arrive. If you’re hoping to have golden bronzed skin for the holiday season, you might be considering a spray tan.

If you are planning to get an airbrush tan for the holiday season, make sure you avoid doing certain things that can make them fade quickly.

Avoid Shower and Shaving

Obviously you’ll need to shower after getting airbrushed, but spending a lengthy amount of time in water can contribute to fading. Exfoliating and shaving can also result in a faded airbrush tan, because razors and loofahs rub the surface of your skin diminishing the tans. We suggest waiting at least 10 to 12 hours before showering for best results.

Avoid Scented Products

Although you might love using scented products, do your best to avoid them after getting airbrushed. Sweet smelling holiday scented products might be tempting, but to achieve that smell, those products are full of chemicals. Consider using unscented soaps and lotions instead which tend to be more natural and softer on skin overall.

Avoid Excessive Perspiration

We understand that fitness is important, but after getting airbrushed, you’ll want to cut back on working out for at least 12 hours after. Sweating can wear off the product, not to mention, you also have to avoid showering which is hard to do if you’ve been working out.  If abstaining from physical activity is not an option, use a gradual tanner between sessions to extend your tan.
