When it comes to deciding about an indoor tanning lotion, there really is something available for everyone. Whether you're a sun worshiper, a fan of the tanning bed or an advocate of sunless tans, these days you can find products that will give you that healthy, year round glow.

For days spent at your favorite pool or beach, or even for sessions at your local tanning salon, you should aim to use a tanning lotion that both hastens the tanning process and protects your skin. So what you want is to find a lotion that enhances the UVA rays while shielding you from the effects of UVB rays. To this end, you should find a lotion that contains tyrosine, since it sends melatonin production into overdrive and allows you to accelerate the tanning process. Additionally you should make sure your indoor tanning lotion contains Vitamin E, an anti-oxidant that will prevent damage from free radicals, as well as nutrients like aloe vera or hempseed oil that will moisturize and rejuvenate your skin. A moist skin tans easier than a dry skin so this is an important point to consider.


Many people find that when it comes to achieving a quick and even tan, legs can be a problematic area. Often legs simply don't tan as quickly as other parts of the body, since there is less blood flow - and therefore less oxygen - to that area. If this is a challenge in your tanning process, you might try a tingle tanning lotion. This special formulation increases the blood flow to the capillaries closest to your skin, increasing the oxygen to your legs and helps the tanning process along. Many tanners love the tingling sensation from these lotions.

Some people become frustrated that they're not achieving the results they desire within the time frame that they had hoped. If this is a problem you face, it could be because you're either not choosing the right tanning lotion or not correctly applying your tanning lotion. An important point here is that you should buy a high quality lotion. When you do, you'll achieve your desired results in a fraction of the time. The extra money you spend on your indoor tanning lotion will be more than offset by less money spent at the tanning salon.


Prior to you tan you should always exfoliate and then apply your tanning lotion. It doesn't make sense to tan skin cells that your body is about to slough off. Try to apply the lotion about an hour before you hit the sun or the salon. Be sure to wear loose-fitting clothing so the lotion doesn't rub off. If you're going to the pool or the beach, make sure to select tanning lotions that are waterproof or water-resistant, and then reapply it throughout the day.

Finally, complete coverage is a must. If you don't have a friend handy to get to those hard-to-reach areas, invest in a lotion applicator so that you can reach all areas of your back.

When applied correctly, a great tanning lotion will help you achieve your tanning goals and look your absolute best! A good moisturizer will ensure that your tan lasts longer and looks smooth and even.
