Are you ready?
Winter is on the way soon.
I know I am not ready for that cold and cloudy season. I always hate that my skin just gets paler and I envy the people that take off for those long winter vacations to some warm and sunny beach.
But I am going to fight back. I am not about to let the winter pale skin syndrome hit. Nope I’m taking my gorgeous tan all the way to next summer with me, and I am not going to put my health in jeopardy either while doing it.
What am I talking about?
Easy! I’m talking about using the best indoor tanning lotion and taking it to the tanning bed salon.Yep, it is the best way to keep that gorgeous tan all through the winter.
Is there such a thing?
Of course, and it is not one of those cheap Walgreen type of indoor tanning lotions that turns you that bright colored orange. Nope. This is the stuff that really works. Some products give you instant results, while others work and accelerate tanning bed results. So where are these wonderful lotion? Right here! I am going to share my list of the best indoor tanning lotions, and I should know, I have tried them all.
But before we start, let me help you understand a little more about indoor tanning lotions. The first thing you need to understand is the ingredients. Any good indoor tanning lotion will include Vitamin E, silicon, body blush and maybe a few more hydrating ingredients.
The next thing to consider is your skin type and you want to make sure you find a lotion that works with your skin type. After all, you don’t want a lotion with too much oil if you have oily skin.
Why Buy an Indoor Tanning Lotion?
Any experienced tanning bed user is gonna tell you that you need to use an indoor tanning lotion to make your tanning bed sessions productive. It is the tanning lotion that keeps your skin moist and does not allow the tanning bed lights to dry it out. If you don’t use an indoor tanning lotion, then your skin is likely to peel and you will probably lose that tan and the money you spend will be for naught.
Indoor Tanning Lotions Offer an Important Moisturizing Effect
This type of product intensifies the UV light and makes tanning happen faster. Plus it makes your skin feel and smell good. Of course there is also the added benefit in that it continues to develop your tan after you leave the tanning bed
How to Use an Indoor Tanning Lotion
OK so this is a product you want to use when you go to the tanning salon. It helps you tan faster and keeps your tan more beautiful between tanning bed appointments. You want to use the lotion before you enter the tanning bed as it will give you that terrific bronze tone and it will also protect your skin and keep it hydrated. Plus, the bigger benefit is that the use of this type of lotion also protects your skin from premature aging.
The Product Reviews
As I mentioned before, I have a list of the best indoor tanning lotions on the market today, so let me show you my list.
1. Millenium Tanning – Paint It Black Tanning Lotion
The new and better beauty market shows its face with this product. It has a 50X auto darkening technology that gives you a darker tan with even the first application.
I like the moisturizing ingredients in this product and the best part is that they are all natural ingredients. This is on my best indoor tanning lotions list because of the fantastic bronzing effect it has on skin. It is a natural looking tan that you can wash off if you want after a few showers, of course.
2. Designer Skin Pretty and Reckless
This is an extreme tanning intensifier with a very strong accelerator. So if you are looking for that “just back from the Bahamas” look then this is the stuff to get. Flaunt that dark tan while rejuvenating your skin. Get a tan but keep your skin looking young and moist. That’s the way to go.
But wait! There is more here. The antioxidants in this lotion are fabulous and its natural ingredients keep your skin hydrated and protected.
Shea butter and vitamin E for moisturizing
Hibiscus and champagne for a sweet fragrance
Skin Rehab ™ technology for skin detoxification
Natural activators of melanin production that makes a tan last longer
3.Australian Gold Sinfully Black 15X Deep Dark Bronzing Tanning Lotion
I don’t want to paint an unrealistic picture for people here, and many of you, especially those that have very fair skin may believe that the products I mention will not work for them. But that just is not so, especially if they use the Australian Gold Sinfully Black tanning lotion. This product helps even the fairest people build up a golden brown tan in just a couple of weeks. This lotion is soft, gentle and has a nice fruity scent –the perfect combination.
4. Australian Gold Hot!
Ahh, this is a popular classic. This lotion helps you get a golden base tan that is fast. What makes this different than other lotions are the natural ingredients with macademia, olive, tea tree and Kukui oils that keep your skin moisturized and soft while giving it amino acids that help darken skin naturally.
Why Not Just Use a Moisturizer or a Sunblock?
The indoor tanning lotions are made specifically to help you tan faster and darker than if you simply lay out in the sun or go to a tanning bed. Sunblocks keep the UV rays of sunlight from affecting your skin, but you don’t want to use sunblock in a tanning bed because it damages the acrylic inside the bed. Plus, the only reason you are going to a tanning bed is to get tan, and if you use sunblock you won’t get that nice tan. But if you use one of the best indoor tanning lotions you will. It’s that simple.
