Accelerate Your Tan

• The melanin activating peptides, which are the basis of all lotions ( non-bronzers and bronzers ), aid the producing of new melanin cells that create the brown pigmentation during U.V light exposure.

• Lotions also bring oxygen to the skin to accelerate your tanning session.


 Moisturize For a Deeper, Darker, Longer lasting Tan

•Moist skin tans 40% more efficiently than dry skin. If you look at dry skin under a microscope, you’ll see a lot of peaks and valleys; this inconsistency smoothness reflects U.V light in certain areas and absorbs it in other areas causing your tan to be inconsistent. By smoothing out the skin with a proper moisturizer, you are absorbing more U.V light evenly and contributing to a 40% better tan result.


Skin Care

• The majority of our tanning lotions contain anti-oxidants, skin firming, and anti-aging ingredients to provide the best possible looking skin while achieving a dark tan.


•You can choose a lotion that has extra bronzing power and adds additional colour  to your skin on top of your U.V tan.

• This helps darken your skin faster and longer, allowing you to get the same results with less visits to the salon. It also helps busts tanning plateaus that you would eventually get with the U.V light.


Natural Lotions
• We now carry a variety of lotions with natural organic ingredients that are free from cosmetic preservatives.
Sensitive Skin/Hypoallergenic

• We carry a special line of tanning lotions for those with sensitivities to certain perfumes and ingredients.


Scent Free

• Lotions that are completely scent free.
• This works well for people who are sensitive to smells or who like to wear other perfumes/colognes and don’t want it to interfere.
Men’s Lotions

• Men have traditional thicker skin and more body hair.

• These lotions spread between hair follicles better.


Tingle Lotions

• These work extremely well; especially for the legs. They help oxygenate the skin.

• Oxygen is a key player in the tan. It’s also the reason why people have a hard time tanning their legs, and it’s also the reason why some people get the white bunny tale on the bottom of their backs where the bed causes pressure points with the skin.


Tattoo Guard

• We have a line of lotions that contain tattoo protectors. Tiger grass is the main ingredient and is well known for its colour preserving properties


Facial Tanners

• We wash our face with different soap then we wash our body. Our face is more sensitive than the skin on the rest of our body and we treat it differently with special tanning lotions.

• Our facial tanning lotions are oil free. Oily body lotions are great for tanning and provide lots of moisturizing effects for our skin, however, we don’t want to clog our face pores with these lotions.

My favourite ingredient with facial tanning lotions is hyaluronic serum. . Naturally found in the body, hyaluronic serum secures moisture and creates fullness..



At Bel-O-Sol Tanning Salon, we have one of the largest selection of tanning lotions in Ottawa; with over 61 different bottles of lotions to choose from.
