All indoor tanning lotions come with directions and you should be sure to follow them especially as far as applying is concerned otherwise you will find that you develop a streaky tan. This is because of incorrect application. You will find many different lotions for those who are experienced in tanning. Since the indoor lotions come without sun block, you may have the sensation of being in the sun. They should not be used outdoors as they contain no SPF and might cause you to burn. Some lotions tingle and these are called sizzle lotions. Sizzle lotions feel hot and will cause redness on untanned skin. These are often proclaimed as the best tanning lotion products since the tingle is a reaction that helps darken the skin. Starter tanners along with those with pale skin should not use this type of lotion as the sensation might be very uncomfortable for them.

Many lotions are not made to use on the face. Take note of this when picking your lotion. There are lotions available which have been specifically designed for faces and also those that are made for use on legs to tan them better.
