Let’s face it. A nice tan makes you look and feel great. Plus, it can hide skin problems, like cellulite and even make you appear thinner. If you are going on a trip or you simply want to look good for an event that’s coming up, it’s important to establish a base tan so that you avoid getting scorched by the sun. We’ll give you 9 easy indoor tanning tips to help you achieve a nice base tan without getting burned.

 Tanning lotions

Apply quality indoor tanning lotion

The appropriate tanning lotion will help your skin absorb UV rays, which is needed in the UV tanning process. There are also special ingredients that stimulate melanin production, such as Tyrosine, which will help you get the most out of every tanning session. It’s best to apply indoor tanning lotion immediately prior to your session or 1-2 hours prior is even better if you can. Applying it ahead of time allows your skin to absorb the lotion better so you will get the best results from your tanning session. Ask our professional tanning technicians at Veranda Sun which tanning lotion is best for you.

Tanning in Boulder at VerandaIndoor tanning does not require a bathing suit

So use a towel to cover those sensitive’ areas that don’t see the sun very often if you want to tan all over (we provide disposable underwear). When you’re starting up, try covering untanned areas for half the session and see how it goes. Gradually you can remove the cover sooner until you don’t it anymore. Fabric acts as a filter but won’t completely block the UV rays, so you are still getting the tanning process started. And no, you’re not covering yourself for privacy. You’ll have complete privacy in your own tanning room.

Apply after tan lotion

More lotion! After your session you need to moisturize and care for your skin. Applying after tanning lotion at least twice a day will help keep your skin happy, once in the morning and again at night before bed. This also can enhance your tan and make it longer lasting- the key to a great tan is healthy skin!
