“Why use Lotion?”….. The most important reason for using a tanning lotion is that it replaces the depleted moisture that your loses during the tanning process. Dry skin reflects UV light, so if you are not using an indoor tanning lotion, you can be wasting up to 50% of your tanning session.
Think of it this way, dry skin is what color? It is white. What does the color white do to light? It reflects it. If you have white skin you will actually reflect a certain percentage of the UV light. Just by applying lotion, you will increase your tanning potential.

“How do I avoid having that “AFTER TAN SMELL” when I tan?” …..  All of our high-end indoor tanning lotions contain ingredients that are called biosaccharides. Biosaccharides are antibacterial ingredients designed to help diminish the after tan smell that can occur when you are done tanning. When you are done tanning you do not have an after tan smell. If you have any fragrance at all, you will have a faint fragrance of the lotion you just used. Keep in mind, outdoor tanning lotion as well as cheap drugstore lotion do not contain biosaccarides.

“What is the best way to extend the length of my tan?” ….. Keep you skin healthy!! How do you do that? Keep it moisturized – constantly. Using a high-end lotion that is specifically formulated with hydrating and skin-repairing ingredients is essential for proper skin care and to help achieve a healthier-looking, longer lasting tan.
Moisturizers should be applied after each shower, after tanning, and any time during the day you feel your skin is dry. By simply keeping your skin moisturized you can nearly double the length of your tan and keep your skin looking younger for years to come.

“What is a Bronzer and why should I use?” ….. In recent years there has been a craze in the tanning industry. This craze is the amount of lotions now being sold that contain bronzers. It is not uncommon for a tanning lotion to contain 4 or 5 high end bronzer ingredients. Using lotions that contain a bronzer is a way to get better results from your tanning experience and to greatly increase the length of your tan.
There are three main types of bronzers. Each gives a slightly different result. :Below is a brief description of all three.”
DHA Bronzers – These do not need any light to produce a tan. DHA bronzers are known as self-tanners. These bronzers work by reacting with certain proteins on the surface layer of the skin.

Cosmetic Bronzers– Cosmetic bronzers give you immediate results, allowing you to achieve a dark brown color directly
after tanning.
Low-maintenance Bronzers – These are the newest and most advanced addition to the bronzer family. Low maintenance bronzers have the ability to not to stain or streak do to a certain mix of ingredients that give them this property.
