Indoor Tanning "Smart Tanning?"
Indoor tanning, if you can develop a tan, is an intelligent way
to minimize the risk of sunburn while maximizing the enjoyment
and benefit of having a tan. We call this SMART TANNING because
tanners are assisted with learning their skin type an encouraged
to slowly build a natural glow for their skin that is easily
maintainable in only a few sessions a month.
are salon indoor tanning lotions better than what I can purchase
at the drugstore or supermarket?
Over-the-counter lotions do not contain the necessary
ingredients that will maximize your tanning results and extend
the life of your tan. Moreover, mass market products do not
replenish as effectively any lost moisturization that occurs
during the tanning process. Tanning Salon lotions are
"bio-engineered" specifically for indoor tanning with the best
ingredients for the nourishment of your skin. Please note that
you should not use regular over the counter daily moisturizers
due to them all having sunblock components in the ingredients.
Why should I use a tanning lotion if I tan just fine with out
This erroneous belief can be easily rectified once clients
actually understand the tanning process. For example, UV
exposure can be dehydrating to the skin. Indoor tanning lotions
will help to replenish any moisture that has been depleted
during the tanning session, thereby improving your results. Not
only will you get a darker tan, you will tan more quickly and it
will last longer. In addition, indoor tanning lotions contain
specific ingredients that promote tanning, melanin synthesis,
and other nutrients for skin rejuvenation.
does a bronzer work and will I turn orange?
bronzers provide instant 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 to enhance the your personal color. It
recommended waiting at least 4 hours after tanning with any
bronzer to ensure results. If you are using a good
quality natural bronzer you will not streak or turn orange. If
you are using a synthetic bronzer it could have a deeper
caramelized tint as the product ages. Products have been much
improved over the years so as long as your using a good quality
bronzer that is NOT expired out of date than you will NOT turn
orange with the right products.
does tingle work? What does it do?
Tingle products deliver a warming, reddening effect on the skin.
The active ingredient in the tingle lotions is Benzyl
Nicotinate. Tingle products increase 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. It
recommended waiting at least 4 hours after tanning with any
bronzer to ensure results.
I stop the tingle action on the skin?
You may use a daily moisturizer to mitigate the heat sensation.
This will not stop the tingle, but it will alleviate it to a
certain extent. Taking a shower with "cool" water and mild soap
will also help ease the tingle, if you must rinse it off.
I have these circles on my shoulders, buttocks, and/or lower
waist that won't tan?
These are called "pressure points", where the most amount of
pressure is on your body when reclining in the bed. The blood
flow is constricted in those areas and that is why they don't
seem to tan at all. Your best bet is to alternate your positions
the benefit of using a lotion that contains Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp Seed Oil is a humectant that pulls moisture from the air to
the surface of the skin. It is a skin care ingredient that
provides powerful hydration. This is a wonderful ingredient in a
tanning lotion because UV exposure can be dehydrating to the
skin. In addition, Hemp Seed Oil contains essential fatty acids
which help ingredients penetrate into the lipid layers of the
showering affect a tan?
We prefer you shave and shower before you come into tan this
way you can shave and the heat from a shower opens your pores,
enabling the skin to breathe and take in oxygen vital to the
tanning process. Second, a shower will wash away dirt and dead
skin cells that may impede ultraviolet penetration when you tan.
Removing those dead cells also allows the active ingredients in
lotions to work their way into the live skin cells more
easily. This way you can wear your tanning lotion all day to
maximize the benefits of the bronzers, and nutrients that you
are paying for. Don't however be mis-lead, you can not wash off
your actual tan you can just enhance the process by showering
and shaving first to wear your lotion thru out the day.
I protect a tattoo?
It is important not to expose a fresh tattoo to sunlight or
indoor tanning equipment, while the tattoo is still healing,
since chemicals sensitive to UV exposure have been injected into
the skin. Cover the tattooed area completely or don't tan until
the skin has healed. After the skin has healed the chemicals
have lost their sensitivity to UV, but continue to take moderate
protective measures. Tattoos will continue to lose their
brilliancy with exposure to UV light, indoor and out, so we
carry many lotions in the salon specially formulated to protect
your tattoo color. Ask us about the lotions with anti-fade
tattoo protection complex.
Do I have to wear my tanning goggles? YES
Please always use goggles at all times to protect your eyes
against the UV damage if you do not have your own pair, there
will be a sanitized pair available in each room.
Can I tan on my medication?
If the pharmacist said stay of the sun on this medication, that
does also mean
indoor tanning. We also have a medication list posted in the
salon lobby for your assistance.
