It is amazing how many people try to get the perfect tan either in a tanning bed without using an indoor tanning lotion and expect to get the most for their money. It is like a chef in the kitchen trying to cook a meal with only the meat and excluding all the vegetables, spices and seasonings. The result that occurs at the end is just not the same by leaving out some key elements of the process. The skin of a person is extremely important to maintain for the overall health of your body as well as to keep up a nice appearance.
There is a common perception that by going to a tanning salon and using a tanning bed that the tan is going to be much faster and look much better than what they can achieve by being outdoors. This rationale can be proven true assuming that you use an indoor tanning lotion. There are numerous benefits that lotions provide to you in addition to improving the tanning process. Many lotions will come with additional moisturizers and other key elements to help promote a beautifully looking healthy skin.
Tanning lotion helps to keep the skin smooth so when the rays from the tanning bed bulbs hit the skin it is easier to penetrate the outer skin layer to provide you with the best tan you can get. Lotions help to spur the tanning process more quickly and can also be used when the session is over to help the tan continue to be established. Research has shown that the tanning process can go on for up to 24 to 48 hours once you leave the bed.
One of the key ingredients to look for in an indoor tanning lotion is a moisturizing agent. Because the skin tends to get dried out during the tanning process from the heat, having a good agent that will work to keep the skin hydrated will work well during and after the tanning session. Additional items to look for when picking a lotion include such things as Vitamin A and E in addition to Tyrosine, which helps clean the pores of the skin.
If you truly want to have the best tanning experience and walk out of the tanning salon with the perfect tan, be sure not to shortcut the process by going without an indoor tanning lotion.
