Tanning Bed Lotions Do More Than Tan Your Skin

Jul 11, 2008
The indoor tanning craze is in full effect and more people than ever are visiting tanning salons on a regular basis. Some would argue that this is a very unhealthy thing to do, and that permanent skin damage is inevitable, but the truths behind indoor tanning go way beyond that and are usually not considered by these critics.

There are hundreds of indoor tanning bed lotions on the market today and most, if not all, provide your skin with the nourishment it craves during and after a session under UV rays. In fact, there are so many lotions available that it is overwhelming to some and it is very easy to get confused about what's in each of them and what they do. However, all tanning lotions share a common denominator - to protect and moisturize your delicate skin while promoting maximum browning during tanning.

Many of the most popular tanning bed lotions contain hemp seed extract in their formulas. This ingredient, which is totally drug-free, is one of the single most important in a good lotion. The natural oil from hemp seeds has a very strong, very thorough moisturizing effect on your skin. This ingredient is also found in many popular skin moisturizers, and if you've had the pleasure of trying one of these you know how good they make your skin feel. It leaves your skin feeling healthy, full of moisture, and leaves no sticky or greasy residue unlike many other moisturizers.

Good tanning lotions also contain many other important ingredients in their formulas which include various other natural oils and skin firming molecules. Many lotions also contain what are called "bronzers", which are the ingredients mostly responsible for the deep, dark color you get after a session. Many bronzers continue to work well after you leave your tanning session so it is advisable to not shower right away, and instead wait 3-4 hours to allow the formulas to do their job to the fullest.

Some lotions also contain what are called "tingle" ingredients which leave a tingling sensation all of your body. This is done to make the tanner feel like the lotion is doing its job, but many tanners find this tingle feeling annoying and uncomfortable and avoid it all costs. Each tanner is different and there is no way to determine which lotion is best for you without first giving each one a try. Most tanning salons will allow you to sample a small amount of certain lotions to see if you like it before making a purchase.
