Indoor tanning lotion question!
Posted 31 March 2009 - 06:51 PM
The people keep trying to sell me indoor tanning lotion. What's the deal? Does it actually make your tan better? Is there a brand that you'd recommend?

I too have fair skin and waited to buy any until I had gone a good 4-5 times...but I have tanned before so I know what to expect from my skin!

I would also recommend using a moisturizing lotion after tanning! The lotions can be expensive in the salons...you can also check online places such as Ebay for better deals...
I am going to start tanning in a few weeks too...it sucks because I know it's so bad for you, but if I go to Mexico as white as I am I will never make it through the week. I can just picture myself in the hospital on my wedding day with 3rd degree burns!

Unless you are up to about 10 minutes of more... read the ingredients, it is simply water and glycerin (or some sort of cocoa/shea/aloe/ butter), and since you are going in there for so little, a regular moisturizer will work just as well.
I used the Vaseline cocoa butter skin cream for the longest time and it worked like a charm + it was Cheap!
Alot of times these creams have tinters that give you the illusion of more colour (and the realism of breakouts!)

i learned my lesson the hard way- but on the upside i've gotten my FI to rub aloe on me every day since (the burn is gone now but i'm still milking it!)

I definitely don't want to be orange, and I don't want to burn either! I also don't want to have one of those fake looking tans (like all the people who work at the salon have) so I'll take it easy.
