If you don’t live in a part of the world blessed with a great climate for tanning or just want to keep yours nice and consistent through the down periods when the temperatures drop, you have probably turned to using a sunbed.
There are ways that it is thought you can improve your sunbed experience so that you tan better, and one of those ways is using indoor tanning lotions. While this is not exactly a surefire way to guarantee that’ll you tan nicely, it can be helpful, and these kinds of products can benefit you in various ways.
We are going to discuss some of the main benefits in this post.
Moisturizes Your Skin
Tanning tends to dry your skin out. Indoor tanning lotions can help to replenish the moisture that your skin loses while you tan. Further to this benefit, skin that is adequately moisturized will have a healthier glow to it.
May Help You Tan Quicker
There is a thought that indoor tanning lotions can help the skin to absorb the UV rays a lot quicker than without. Tyrosine is the ingredient that most people recommend you look for when choosing indoor tanning lotions because this plays an important role in the stimulation of natural melanin production.
It goes without saying, whether you think it’s safe to tan in a sunbed or not, it can get quite hot and uncomfortable inside one. This is another reason why investing in a good quality indoor tanning lotion may be a good idea, because many of them provide a pleasant tingling and cooling sensation.
As indoor tanning lotions are moisturizers, many of them contain ingredients that can help reverse the unpleasant signs of aging somewhat. You should particularly look for indoor lotions that contain essential vitamins and skin-firming agents.
Can Protect Against Burns
Again, this post is not about whether you feel tanning beds are bad or good, but if you are worried about uneven tanning, peeling or even the possibility of burning but want to use them, you should invest in a good lotion. As they often help you tan quicker, you do not need to spend as much time in the bed for great results, reducing your chances of burning.
If you are going to use a tanning lotion, it’s best to follow the directions of the particular product you choose. That being said, we always recommend that you use this kind of lotion around 2 to 3 hours before you are due at the solarium. As there are many different products out there, it may be harder than you think choosing between the best indoor tanning lotions, that’s why we would always advise that you research as much as you possibly can about the different types of lotions. There are some called developers, some called fixers, and some called bronzers and they all help you tan in their own specific ways. There is no one-product-for-all approach, so you really need to find the one that suits you best.
Now that you know some of the main benefits of using sun lotions, we are sure you will be able to find the right one for you.
