Importance of Tanning Lotion
While tanning lotions are not mandatory for indoor tanning, most tanning lotions have important vitamins and ingredients to help you achieve a base tan and to extend the life of your tan. People who avoid using tanning products will not get the extra moisture or a stable tan since tanning tends to dry the skin; they will lose their tan more quickly between sessions, due to dry skin flaking away. Tanning lotions are important for three reasons:
- Hydration: It is necessary that skin be hydrated sufficiently to reach and maintain the desired tan. Dry, neglected skin reflects UV light, not allowing it to tan underneath. It also exfoliates faster, causing the tan to fade quickly.
- Nutrition: The natural vitamins in many lotions or creams are fundamental to the skin's appearance and to its ability to tan. Along with other hydrating properties, these vitamins replenish the necessary nutrition to skin, promoting cell regeneration and oxygenation for greatly improved tanning results.
- Oxygenation: Oxygen fuels all skin cell functions, thereby accelerating the tanning process. A good lotion or cream containing vitamins and botanical oil formulas help achieve deep oxygenation to stimulate melanin production for the best tan possible.
Limitations of Use
It is not a good Idea to use these types of tanning lotions outside of a tanning bed. Indoor tanning lotions usually don't contain SPF. You will have no sun protection outdoors. Outdoor UV rays can vary daily even hourly in intensity. It is recommended that you use a SPF lotion while tanning outdoors. Outdoor tanning lotions are not recommended for indoor use, as they can cause a film on the acrylic on a tanning bed and inhibit the tanning process.
