TANNING LOTION 101
Not sure of what type of tanning lotion to choose that will work best for your skin and tanning needs? Let us give you a run-down before purchasing!
This type of lotion has ingredients that will hydrate and tan your skin. There are ZERO bronzers in this type of lotion. It has ingredients that work with the melanin in your skin. You will only see the color that your melanin produces. This tanning lotion is white so it doesn't have bronzers to darken your tan while your tan develops NATURALLY!
This type contains ingredients which cause micro-circulation. Micro-circulation brings blood to the surface of the skin. When the oxygen in your blood rises to the surface of the skin, the UV light can reach it much more easily. This process will deepen your tan to a new level. When using a tingle lotion, you may experience mild to intense tingling of the skin, slight to intense reddening of the skin, mild to intense heat on the surface of the skin.
Bronzers are often added to tanning products to enhance and darken the tan, blend unevenly tanned areas, and enrich the tone (color) of the tan. Many moisturizers now contain bronzers. Today's bronzers work to give you a "HEALTHY GLOW" when used daily. Streaking is virtually unheard of because the effects are gradual. This concept is extremely popular. These are effective for people who tan indoors, outdoors, or don't get any UV exposure at all.
Natural bronzers contain herbal and other plant-based ingredients. Common extracts for enhanced coloring are caramel and vitamin B2 (riboflavin), while coffee extract and hemp seed oil are used to tone, moisturize, and nourish the skin. You may find all-organic ingredients in high-quality natural bronzers, with added ingredients such as walnut shell extract, fig, and henna to support dermal health and even out pigment application.
Let's face it, we're all terrified of turning orange due to using the wrong lotion on our skin. That's why we have blue-hued lotion options! This type of lotion ensures instant results while helping counteract any orange tones for flawless, natural dark color. The formula in this lotion focuses on nourishing and hydrating the skin, while correcting any skin imperfections.
Certain parts of the body tan differently from the rest. Enhance your legs with lotion featuring shave-minimizers and firming ingredients, or try a facial lotion specifically formulated for the sensitive skin on your face.
