What is Tanning Bed Lotion Good For?

Outside in the sun, a tanning lotion is great for soaking up the sun without burning up or facing damage from the ultraviolet rays. But what about indoors? How does tanning bed lotion ( millenniumtanning.com/tanning-bed-lotion ) work, and will you get the same benefits buy using an indoor tanning lotion outside?

First of all, choosing a tanning bed instead of the beach is a good idea. Not everyone has access to the beach, of course, and not many people have access to the sunshine all year round. That leaves the tanning bed. A tanning bed lotion is as necessary on a tanning bed as an outside lotion is for outdoors, and for the same reasons.

A tanning bed lotion deepens and darkens a tan by promoting the production of melanin. Melanin is a natural skin pigment which determines the lightness or darkness of your skin. Tanning lotion helps your body produce more melanin, as does being out in the sunshine. Increased melanin is healthy and may help protect you from sun damage, but only up to a point. Sunscreen is still needed to protect skin from the ultra-violet rays. This means that, whether you are tanning indoors or outdoors, it is necessary to use a tanning lotion with sunscreen.

The benefits of tanning bed lotions

The biggest benefit to a tanning bed lotion is that, with it, you can achieve that healthy glow that makes you look like you spent the day in the sun, even if there hasn’t been any sun around for a while. A tanning bed lotion boosts the production of melanin in the body, and that is why it’s essential to a good tan. In fact, you can’t get tanned without it.

If you want to use an indoor tanning lotion outside, be sure that it is safe to do so. Not all lotions are transferrable; you can use your indoor tanning bed lotion outside in the sun only if the lotion contains a moisturizer and a sunscreen. This will give you the benefits of melanin production with the proper protections for your skin. If you are using a tanning bed lotion outside in the sun and near the water, then the lotion should be water resistant, too. The best advice is to be aware of the lotion itself.

But it does not work the other way around. Only an indoor tanning bed lotion is safe to use on a tanning bed. There may be chemicals or ingredients in an outdoor lotion that could damage the acrylics on the tanning bed.

Ingredients matter

Indoor or outdoor, the ingredients in the lotion do matter. Put only the best on your skin.

Tanning bed lotions ( https://millenniumtanning.com/about-us ) that contain the freshest ingredients and moisturizers also smell great. Pomegranate, chai spices, coconut, and jojoba - they smell like the tropics, and they protect, moisturize, and don’t do harm to the skin in any way.

For many reasons, it is not a good idea to tan without tanning lotion, but for just as many reasons, it’s a good idea to be mindful when you tan. Don’t stay out in the sun too long, be careful with UV rays, and use tanning bed lotions at all times when tanning indoors, and outdoors, too.
