What is the benefit of using indoor tanning lotion?
The most important reason for using a tanning lotion is that it replaces the depleted moisture that your loses during the tanning process. 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.
Think of it this way, dry skin is what color? It is white. What does the color white do to light? It reflects it. If you have white skin you will actually reflect a certain percentage of the UV light. Just by applying lotion, you will increase your tanning potential.
Won’t I get the same tan if I use nothing at all?
Try this! Put lotion on one arm. After about 2 minutes, put both arms together and see which one is darker. The arm that you put the lotion on will always be darker. Darker, moisturized skin will absorb UV light better than ashy, dry skin.
How do I avoid having that “after tan” smell when I tan?
All of our high-end indoor tanning lotions contain ingredients that are called biosaccharides (Devoted Creations FreshTek) which are antibacterial ingredients designed to help diminish the after tan smell that can occur when you are done tanning. When you are done tanning you do not have an after tan smell. If you have any fragrance at all, you will have a faint fragrance of the lotion you just used. Keep in mind, outdoor tanning lotion as well as drugstore lotion do not contain biosaccarides.
What is a BRONZER and why is it beneficial in a tanning lotion?
Using lotions that contain a bronzer is a way to get better results from your tanning experience and to greatly increase the length of your tan.
There are a few main types of bronzers. Each gives a slightly different result. Below is a brief description of them.
• DHA Bronzers – These do not need any light to produce a tan. DHA bronzers are known as self-tanners. These bronzers work by reacting with certain proteins on the surface layer of the skin. Some of our lotion products contain low levels of DHA bronzers, which can help extend your tan to seven to ten days.
• Cosmetic Bronzers- Cosmetic bronzers give you immediate results, allowing you to achieve a dark brown color directly
What is the best way to EXTEND the length of my tan?
Keep you skin healthy!! How do you do that? Keep it moisturized – constantly. Using a high-end lotion that is specifically formulated with hydrating and skin-repairing ingredients is essential for proper skin care and to help achieve a healthier-looking, longer lasting tan.
Moisturizers should be applied after each shower, after tanning, and any time during the day you feel your skin is dry. By simply keeping your skin moisturized you can nearly double the length of your tan and keep your skin looking younger for years to come.
Tan and Glam carries a full line of inexpensive, high quality skin moisturizers, specifically engineered for the indoor tanner.
I’ve heard I can save a few dollars by buying lotion online,is there any truth to that?
As with any product you buy online, the only advice we can give is caveat emptor, let the buyer beware!! There is not one single company in the entire United States that is licensed to sell any of the products and lotion lines we carry anywhere other than in a tanning salon.
So where are the online products coming from? Many products online are actually counterfeits. Yes, just like fake watches and designer handbags, they actually counterfeit tanning lotion now. Others are coming from individuals that are buying them in a salon, using the product, and filling the bottle back up with some cheap store bought lotion and selling them online.
Others have reported paying for the product, and never actually receiving it.
Since high end lotions have active ingredients such as the biosaccarides and vitamins and minerals, they do have an expiration date. There have been reports that many lotions showing up on the internet are expired products, which can result in a foul odor and lack of effectiveness.
