6 INCREDIBLE TIPS FOR A DEEP BRONZE TAN AND HOW TO KEEP IT!


Looking for flawless, perfectly sun-kissed-looking skin? Sunbeds are your best allies in this mission. If you’re new to the sunbed tanning world, these tips will come in handy to take your tanning experience from good to great.

1. Avoid Showering Right After

Avoid showering right after using an indoor tanning lotion with a bronzer. This tip does not apply to non-bronzers.

 

2. Exfoliate Once A Week

Dead skin cells build up on the surface of your skin, making it dry, dull and hard to tan. Body hair is another element that can complicate the skin’s ability to absorb those tanning rays. Exfoliating and shaving the night before you hit the tanning bed is a great way to improve your chances of getting a perfectly smooth, even tan.

3. Use An Indoor Tanning Lotion

Indoor tanning lotion is like tanning insurance. It will help your skin retain that tan for longer while keeping your skin healthy. Ask us about our tanning lotion options.

They contain tyrosine, an amino acid your body needs to create melanin.

4. Take It Slow

Being overly ambitious when it comes to your tan can backfire, especially if it’s the first time. Rather than wanting to go from zero to tanning queen, give it time. Gradually build your tan until you hit the perfect tone for you. This is the perfect way to get a good tan and keep it for longer.

5. Use A Sulphate-Free Body Wash

Regular body washes contain sodium sulphate, which strips away your tan. Dove makes a nice sulphate-free body wash, which you can find easily.

6. Use A Tan-Extender

We carry after-tan moisturizers that we call tan extenders. They’re similar to body moisturizers but with melanin enhancing ingredients that extend the life of your tan and seal in moisture for a smooth, glowing complexion.
