Yes, a tinlge can help push your results to the next level, but don't get a whole bottle, buy a trial size packette & do a test spot on your arm first to make sure that you don't have a reaction to it. once you get it on you cannot stop the "warming effect"

You are going in the stand-up too much , give it a break & tan in some beds for awhile. You may need to stop tanning for a week or so to give your skin a break. The other thing is to pus tanning stickers so that you can truly monitor your results. good luck

rotating beds and lotions could help, along with a tingle. i agree to but a sticker on to truly see your results.
but remember sometimes its as dark as you can get. i believe there is a limit especially depending on your skin type.

I agree....you should definately change beds. I don't know about your salon but ours have different bulbs then our base beds. You need the UVB to help maintain the melanin production. You might just need to try a new bed with a new bulb type. Tingle, I find is one of the best things to first start improving your tan. Once you start using a tingle, you can continue to get a newer and better lotion..with or without bronzer. I'd try the new bed first though. One of my former clients has just purchased a salon and I have been tanning there to let her know how her bulbs are doing etc. I don't have the heart to say that she needs to try a different brand, she is so excited about her new salon. I get extremely dark and I've been tanning at her salon for almost a month, sometimes daily and it looks as though I'm just starting a base tan....she has UVA bulbs....then are nice but...not the best.

I use to use tingles but find no difference between them and an expensive accelerator. Fiji Tantric was one of my favourites.

sandigirl, I love the smell of Tantric, it is heavenly.

Girl7........Tanning lamps all have to have UVA & UVB to produce a Tan, if your friend just purchased a salon then she needs to know how many hours are on the lamps, cause if they are not tanning you then they may be past there useful life.

No, they are new....it's the type she bought. She bought more of a bronzing bulb. Most of the girls there are perfectly tan using them, but I find that it is slow at developing the type of tan I want and the type that I am used to.

Also, if your have been using a good tingle to bust that plateau, you may have to go back to a less intense lotion. Your body may have adapted. Slow down your frequency of tanning, and use a less intense lotion, then kick your skin back in with a better lotion!! Woohoo!

Great point on going back down to an accelerator! I have seen that happen many times. People go back to an accelerator and the color kicks back in.
