Best Buys in Tanning Bed Lotions

Mar 11, 2008
So you have decided to get that tan you have always dreamed of. You know that you will use a tanning bed, but need to figure out which particular tanning bed lotion to use.

Any online search will produces hundreds of options, perhaps over a thousand. These can range from simple indoor tanning bed lotions, to bronzing creams, to increasingly common tingle factor lotions. Any of these will assist in getting a rich, natural tan when you venture out to your favorite poolside or beachside spot. An important note to make is that there are almost no tanning lotions that offer significant UVA/UVB protection; so you could still suffer skin harm. This must be considered if you choose to use only a simple tanning lotion to soak up some rays.

With the incredible variety of tanning lotions and the plethora of ingredients and potions, indoor sunless tanning should also be considered. One positive point is that these types of lotions are very versatile. Because they are marketed to work in spa and tanning salons under extremely strong tanning rays, they are safe and effective for individual use at home, especially important with the rise of popularity of at home tanning beds. These sunless tanning lotions are also great because they work even if there is bad weather outside and you can not get to the spa or tanning salon. In addition, virtually every sunless tanning lotion has a positive side effect of moisturizing your skin while offering a natural tan.

Perhaps the main reason for the increased interest in tanning bed lotions is the increased awareness of sun damage on skin. While 20 years ago saw people tanning with no protection, sun worshippers of today know that even small periods of direct sun exposure will hurt your skin. Manufacturers and researchers are now pursuing lotions that not only protect the skin, but start to rebuild and reinforce skin on the cellular level. Another great aspect about these lotions is that while there are many choices online, tanning salons now offer choices that allow experimentation regardless of where you live.

So if you just have to have the celebrity quality tan, tanning lotions can help you achieve this with fewer drawbacks. However, you must keep in mind that they will never be able to be completely avoided. While people adore the golden tans of their favorite model or actress, this often comes at a cost of skin damage that could even lead to skin cancer. No matter what path is chosen, whether that be pills, accelerators, or some other choice, tanning lotions can be a useful and safe tool.
