Selecting The Best Tanning Lotions

By: Frank K Muller | Posted: 13th June 2011

Whilst you may be tempted to use the same tanning oils and lotions that you use for sunbathing at the beach, it is essential that you use only specialty products for moisturizing and protecting your skin while tanning in a tanning bed. The reason here is that lotions that are meant to be used outside will damage the acrylics of the tanning beds. They also contain SPF which will prevent you from tanning. This article discusses the best indoor tanning lotions on the market today.

The best indoor tanning lotions will contain moisturizers to moisten your skin, while heightening your tanning experience. This is important because the UV rays from the tanning beds will dry out your skin, and skin tans easier when it is moisturized. Several tanning lotions also contain Tyrosine, which will maximize the effects of your tan much faster. You should bear these things in mind when choosing your lotion.

California Tan has some wonderful lotions on the market because they use only the highest quality ingredients, and they specialize in accelerating lotions to help deepen your tan. One of their lines, 'Envy My Forbidden Darkness' by Matahari, includes maximizers and bronzers, consisting of Orchard, Pomegranate, and Cashmere age-defying skin care properties. Beginner tanners may prefer their 'X-Power Bronzer' since they can start at either Step 1 or Step 2 for the desired darkness.

Swedish Beauty tanning products also work superbly in tanning beds. They remind you of being in the Caribbean, and are infused with Vitamins A, B, C and E and triple moisturizers to protect your skin. Their lotions often have a 'tingle power' which makes your skin burn initially but then darken beautifully. If you like this sensation, you might enjoy trying 'Pink Diamond', a bronzer with a tingle, or 'Unforgiven' which is a triple bronzer with an anti-aging formula. If you prefer a deep tan without the tingler, try 'Simply Divine' which consists of five bronzers, plus an anti-aging and firming blend. All of their lotion contain moisturizers.

Caribbean Gold indoor tanning lotions are sweetly perfumed and lightly infused with flowers. They are enriched with vitamins, antioxidants, and moisturizers which nourish your skin. This is one of the lines that is hypo allergic so it is safe for sensitive skin. Each lotion features natural botanicals to help with a set feature, and are THC drug free. For instance, if you want a dark tan and also need to hide some wrinkles, you may want to try 'Wild Thing' which features a tingler and has Birch Bark Extract to help reduce wrinkles. If you want a tingler but then want a cooler as well, try 'Body Candy' which features an out of color bronzer but also Hemp Seed Extract as a cooler and moisturizer to balance it out.

In conclusion, there are hundreds of indoor tanning lotions available on the market today. The better quality indoor tanning lotions provide moisture and will help protect you from the UV rays, and those include California Tan, Swedish Beauty, and Caribbean Gold tanning products. All these ranges also have a moisturizer section which is extremely good for your skin.
