Skin Care

Indoor tanning lotions are designed to stimulate melanin, bringing it to the surface of your skin to enhance your tan.  Many are also designed to replace moisture and nutrients after a tanning session.


The most important reason for using a tanning lotion is that it replaces the depleted moisture that is lost during the tanning process. Dry skin can reflect 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. But just by applying lotion, you will increase your tanning potential.

Lotion Types

Bronzer:  The nice thing about a bronzer is it gives you an instant tan, so you achieve that sun-kissed look immediately, and you continue to darken for hours after your session.


Maximizer:  Accelerators and maximizers are great for beginning indoor tanners. They are formulated to help you quickly achieve a base tan, but normally don’t contain any added bronzers. They usually contain a large amount of moisturizers that allow the skin to tan more quickly and retain your color for a longer time. 


Extender:  Prolong the life of your tan with these after tan skin care products.


Face / Legs:  Specified for enhanced color on your legs or the sensitive skin on your face.


Moisturizer:  Always moisturize!  Skin hydration and nourishment after your tanning session will also help extend the life of your tan.
