3 Things To Look For In A Tanning Bed Lotion

By Edited Oct 27, 2015 0 0

Are you a fan of indoor tanning? If so, you're not alone! There are a ton of people all across America that use indoor tanning as a way to stay nice and bronze when the real sun isn't providing enough light. There are health risks associated with these tanning beds and they've been covered in many other places. If you'd like to know the risks that one takes one tanning, I encourage you to visit Wikipedia or talk to your local doctor. In this article, we'll be exploring a few things you should be looking for when selecting a tanning bed lotion for indoor use.

The first thing I'd recommend is using a tanning lotion that comes with a reputable name brand attached to it. Some of the more familiar names out there include Hemporer, Brown Sugar and Swedish Beauty. All these products are available online for fairly reasonable prices. Using cheaper products isn't really recommend. You are, after all, using these lotions to protect your skin to some extent.

There are really three qualities that you should look for when selecting a tanning lotion for indoor use. Please keep in mind that this is really just a basic guide. There are a ton of different lotions on the market and the more you read about each one, the more you'll know what works for you. Check out Amazon.com for a list of tanning bed lotions and a few reviews. The best part about these reviews is the fact that they're written by real people who have actually used the products for sale.

The most important thing to look for in a tanning bed lotion revolves around it's moisturizing affect. You see, all good tanning lotions need to be able to keep your skin nice and moist throughout the tanning process. This makes a lot of sense if you think about. Tanning and dry skin go hand in hand so anything you can do to keep your skin wet will benefit you in the long run. Without a good moisturizer, your skin is liable to crack and break - not exactly the beauty effect you're looking for! The moisturizer inside the tanning lotion also makes the product go on nice and smooth. This helps the user spread the lotion consistently across his or her entire body.

Vitamin E is another ingredient that should be included in your tanning lotion of choice. Here's why: Vitamin E is an antioxidant. This is important because antioxidants are known for preventing wrinkles in skin. Because tanning can cause wrinkling, it's important to have the Vitamin E in your lotion to counter this. Not all tanning bed lotions have this ingredient so make sure you read the label carefully.

The final ingredient that you should be looking for in a tanning lotion is tyrosine. I've never heard of a lotion not sporting this stuff so you probably don't have to look that carefully for a product that includes it. Tyrosine is a type of amino acid that helps with the production of melanin. As you probably know, melanin is the stuff that's responsible for darkening the color of skin. Obviously anything that encourages rapid tanning is a good thing. The less time you have to spend under the sun lamp, the more money you'll save!
