How To Put On Tanning Bed Lotions To Get A Tan

By Veronica Cappelletti

Many people want a fast tan, using the proper tanning bed lotions can give you a nice, bronze look faster than lying in a bed. This is not the same lotion you would use if you were trying to get your tan outside in the sun. It is specially formulated to work with the lights in the bed, and not damage the acrylic surfaces in them.

It is not uncommon for people to use a salon to get a tan. People who live in areas that have a lot of sun go so they do not have to worry about damage from the sun's UV rays. People who live in areas where the sun does not shine as much go to help the tan they are getting outside.

Normal tanning lotions are designed to work with the sun and create more melanin in your skin. The increase in melanin is what causes your skin to change color. These products do not protect you from the sun.

Wearing a sun block while using a product to speed up your tan is a good idea if you are going to be outside. For a safe way to tan, there are products that dye your skin. You need to put them on and wash your hands or your hands will be dyed and look funny. Also be sure to get in any creases and folds.

Going to a salon and using a tanning bed does not produce a tan any faster than getting one outside. The difference is you do not have to wait for good weather to get started. You can already be a nice, soft brown before summer hits.

If you use tanning bed lotions, you will get a tan faster than normal. It is the same thing as if you used a regular lotion in the sun. You need to have one for the salon and one for outside though because the one for outside will ruin the acrylic surfaces of a bed. They contain too much oil.
