Tanning Myths Debunked

Feb 20, 2018 | Uncategorized

Myth #1: You don’t have to use tanning lotion.

To receive a tan, your skin’s melanin production takes 7-8 minutes to process, cutting into over half of your tanning session. Our Designer Skin products jumpstart your melanin production in less than 30 seconds, while protecting and hydrating your skin. This ensures that you will receive all the benefits of your tanning session.

Myth #2: You will see color after a single tan.

Even with our highest-level bed, it can take a minimum of 2-3 sessions before you notice color. Need a quick tan for a special occasion? Try our automated spray tan booths with assortments of different bronzers and add-ons to choose from.

Myth #3: There isn’t a difference between the different types of tanning beds.

The later the model, the longer it takes to get a base tan and/or to see color verses the higher models that provide instant color. With 5 different options to choose from, the different models and makes of beds each provide different features.

Myth #4: The skin on your face tans the same as the skin on your body.

The skin around your face is thinner and more sensitive, and needs more care compared to the rest of your body. Placing a towel over your face will not block out all of the tanning rays. The best way to protect your face during tanning sessions is to use a facial lotion with bronzers, such as Instant Icon, or a facial lotion without bronzers, such as Crystal Faces. Both of those face lotions can also be used after tanning sessions, as a daily moisturizer, to help you maintain your tan!

Myth #5: To stay hydrated, I can use regular lotion after tanning.

We advise that you use caution over which “after-tan” products you use after your tanning sessions. Other companies put alcohol in their after tanning lotions that only serves to dry out the skin. We carry entire line of alcohol-free lotion, specifically for post tanning sessions. Our most popular line of after-tan products is the Hemp Nation Collection. With four different aromas, and four different benefits to each one, there really isn’t any comparison!
