Lotion or no Lotion

Hi,

Can someone please advise if it is essential you aplt lotion when going on a sunbed? Ihave heard they are just tan accelerators and dont actually protect the skin?

Thanks

Lotion is not needed, However it is recommended. Dry skin does not tan very well.

Re: Lotion or no Lotion

How about if I put body lotion on before I go? Will this help?

Many of the cheap drugstore moisturizers have Petrolatum in them, they will ruin the tanning bed acrylic.

Re: Lotion or no Lotion

The tanning process pulls moisture out of your skin, so you need to hydrate or replace what is being pulled out. That is the #1 reason to use lotion. #2 reason is to accelerate the tanning process and make the skin receptive to the UV light.

I have always been amazed at people who will spend $75 on their hair, $50 on their nails, $200 on their teeth, spend hundreds on the best quality makeup, but go to walmart and spend $4 on their skin on product that is the bottom of the barrel, and clogs their pores with alcohol and other fillers; the most important and noticeable part of their bodies. Go figure.

My advise, skip the bleach and eye makeup, and get a decent bottle of indoor tanning lotion. We sell good lotion in my salon for $10 a bottle.
