The short answer is YES!!
It can be easy to assume that a tanning lotion is not necessary when using a tanning bed. You might even don’t want to bother lathering up, but it all comes down to keeping your skin protected 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 radiant tan, but they will also improve your skin overall. Indoor tanning lotions contain lots of 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!
A Few Tips to pick the perfect tanning lotion
- Decide if you want a bronzer component (DHA) in your lotion or not. A bronzer will enhance your tan and result in instant gratification when you step out of the bed.
- 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 a tanning lotion can help you see results 60% faster, and it will also help you keep a healthy skin. 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.
