Does a tanning lotion REALLY help me get a better tan?

Yes. Indoor tanning lotions ensure that your skin is best prepared for its exposure to tanning rays, and maximize the tanning experience. Here are some good reasons why you should consider using a quality tanning lotion:
• Excellent skin care – lotions are scientifically designed to rejuvenate your skin cells for noticeably younger and smoother skin. Most higher-end lotions use the same high-quality skin care ingredients that you would find in products such as L’Oreal, Oil of Olay and many others.
• Moist skin tans more quickly and efficiently than dry skin. This means that you get better tanning results with fewer visits. Using a quality lotion can actually save you money AND give you a deeper, darker, more natural tan.
• Darker results – achieve up to 50% darker results than what your skin can do naturally. This is done by adding ingredients that promote extra melanin production. Some lotions contain extra bronzing agents that will give you extra colour that will last 5-7 days longer.
• Hydration – lotions add then seal the moisture in your skin. Hours after your session you skin will feel softer and smoother, and look darker.
• Dry skin prevents you from getting a decent tan. How?
• Dry skin reflects UV light, preventing it from producing or reacting with the melanin deeper in your skin.
• Dry skin flakes/rubs off quickly, taking your hard-earned tan with it.
• You should use tanning lotion for your skin for the same reason you use shampoo or conditioner for your hair – it enhances, softens, moisturizes and improves the look and feel of your hair. The same applies to your skin.
