If you like a golden tan but worry about your overall tanning results and your skins health, then indoor tanning lotions are for you. If you have never used one before, it’s very easy to think that outdoor lotions are the same, so why not just use these instead?
Well, there’s quite a difference between the two, outdoor lotions are designed to block UV rays, whereas indoor tanning lotions have been developed to enhance the effect of these UV rays. Therefore, using outdoor lotions on a sunbed would counteract the benefits of indoor tanning.
So, why should we be using indoor lotions?
· They enhance and stimulate the body’s natural tanning process
· Help to keep your body’s skin moisturised throughout and after the tanning process
· Help to create a deeper and longer lasting tan
What to look out for in your lotion?
When choosing your tanning lotion, look out for those which contain natural oils, vitamins and aloe vera, these ingredients will give your skin the extra moisture it needs to develop a richer and darker tan.
Do you suffer from dry skin? If so, by not using a tanning lotion you could be wasting up to 50% of your tanning session because dry skin reflects UV light, so apply that lotion everyone!
Here at Radiance London we love the indoor tanning lotion range from Peau d’Or. As we all know exposure to sunlight is vital to ensure we are getting enough Vitamin D, but it’s also very easy to over expose and this in turn can cause early signs of skin aging. Don’t worry, Peau d’Or have introduced a range of luxurious tanning lotions which are rich in premium rejuvenating complexes and one of the main ingredients we adore is real gold! We love the fact that gold has the properties to repair DNA and rejuvenate the skin, which is fantastic news for those who love to tan.
