Why Tan Indoors?
For those of us who can develop a tan, indoor tanning can be an intelligent way to minimize the risk of sunburns while maximizing the enjoyment and benefits of having a tan. The experts call this SMART TANNING because tanners are taught by trained operators on how their skin will react to sunlight and how to avoid sunburns, indoors or out. For more information, visit www.theita.com or www.tanningtruth.com.
What's the difference between indoor and outdoor tanning lotions?
Indoor tanning lotions are very different than typical suntan lotions that were formulated to use outdoors. The skin care products that we sell replenish the skin's moisture that is depleted during tanning and many contain cosmetic bronzers to help you look darker, faster. Indoor tanning lotions are "bio-engineered" specifically to deeply moisturize skin and enhance the effect of UV rays (typically 95% of UVA and 5% of UVB). Never use outdoor suntan lotion in a Sunbed as the SPF found in outdoor lotions block both UVA and UVB rays which restricts the tanning process. Important to note: oils can seriously damage sunbeds' acrylic material, causing hairline cracks.
Why use a lotion?
Dry skin reflects UV light, so if you are not using an indoor tanning lotion, you can be wasting up to 50% of your tanning session.
Skin conditioning may just be the most important and often overlooked part of the tanning process. Indoor lotions contain specific ingredients that promote tanning and melanin synthesis.
High-quality indoor tanning lotions have a refractive prism of natural oils that cause a magnification of the UV light, this helps intensify your tan. Indoor tanning lotions that contain vitamins, natural oils, minerals, anti-oxidants, and natural botanical extracts give your skin the extra moisture needed to achieve a deeper tan that will last longer than dry, unhealthy skin.
Preparing your skin with lotion one time gives you the same results as three sessions without! Achieve a beautiful tan faster with deep bronze colour without reddening.
Which Type of Tanning Lotion Is Best for Me?
The lotions we offer at Island Sunset Tan are exclusively formulated with skin-relieving, cosmetic quality ingredients to moisturize and maximize your results while tanning indoors. Our friendly, knowledgeable team will help you find just the thing to build and keep your bronze glow at an affordable price!
Great for beginners starting a base tan, accelerators help increase the efficiency of every tanning session.
"Are you happy with the level of color your body naturally produces with a tan?" If you're not, you might want to try a bronzer. Bronzers enhance and deepen colour and even your skin tone, enhancing your bronze, sun-kissed look.
Dual bronzers provide bronze gratification from immediate cosmetic bronzers such as caramel and walnut extract as well as from DHA sunless tanning agents, which oxidize over a few hours with the natural proteins in the skin to develop even deeper, darker results. It recommended waiting to shower at least 4 hours after tanning with any bronzer to ensure results.
Tan Extenders are specially designed moisturizers that replenish your skin after tanning and lock in the colour and glow of your tan for longer-lasting results.
Facial Accelerators & bronzers
The facial area is much more delicate and more likely to have allergic reactions to fragrance, breakouts and cosmetic reactions. Use facial accelerators and bronzers that are fragrance free and/or hypoallergenic and specifically designed for the face
Tingle products deliver a warming, reddening effect on the skin by increasing the skin cell's microcirculation and oxygenation to produce deep, dark tanning results. Tingles are for your advanced tanners and are not recommend for beginning tanners or individuals with sensitive skin. Tingle products are also effective on hard-to-tan areas such as women's legs. As with all tingle products, extra care should be taken when handling children and pets as the reddening effect could be transferred to skin even hours after use.
