Tanning Bed Lotion - How to Get the Best Tan

By Tanya Turner

Getting perfect tan all year around is easy with modern tanning beds. However, it is important to remember safety rules for indoor tanning. Using a tanning bed you can easily get sun burn. To prevent this, the first rule of tanning safely is always using a tanning bed lotion.

Why it is necessary to use a tanning bed lotion?

Tanning beds give you tan the same way the sun does, by exposing your skin to UV rays. Only tanning bed produces light much more powerful than the sun. That means that if you are tanning unprotected you can get bad sunburn. You also put yourself at risk of cancer.

Tanning bed lotions can prevent burning and damage to your skin. And a tanning lotion helps you get more even tan that really glows and stays on your skin longer.

Essential ingredients in a quality tanning lotion

You can find many different brands of tanning lotions. Most tanning lotions contain the following important ingredients:

    Tyrosine Vitamin E Copper Aloe Vera

Tyrosine helps your skin to tan faster and better. It stimulates a skin pigment called melanin, which gives your skin that beautiful golden color.

Vitamin E is important to protect your skin from premature aging while tanning. UV rays are the main cause of wrinkles and other skin imperfections, so supplying your skin with Vitamin E is important to keep it healthy. Some tanning lotions also contain other vitamins and antioxidants

Cooper is often added to tanning lotions. It helps to make scars and other small skin blemishes less visible.

Many tanning bed lotions include Aloe Vera extract and other natural herbal ingredients. These moisturize your skin while you are tanning and make it feel silky and smooth afterwards.

Types of tanning bed lotions

Different types of lotions serve different purpose. Before getting into a tanning bed you should use lotions with tyrosine. They serve as "tan accelerators". After you're finished your tanning session use a different lotion. These after tan lotions will dehydrate your skin. Look at the label on the lotion; it should say whether you should use it before or after tanning. It is best to have lotions of both types.

How to select the right tanning lotion for your skin

Depending on your natural skin color, there are different types of lotion. They are usually marked as I to V tones. I and II are good for fair skin and for people who doesn't tan much. If you're natural skin is already tanned use III or IV type of lotion. Make sure to read the label on the bottle carefully, before buying a lotion.

Never go for indoor tanning without a tanning bed lotion. It will protect your skin from burns and premature aging. Lotion will also help you get the best of your tanning sessions - your tan will look better and stay on your skin longer.
