3 Types of Indoor Tanning Lotions

Indoor Tanning Lotion 317-257-8262

No indoor tanning lotion is the same. Not only can you find thousands of name brands on the market, you will come across tanning lotions that provide different functions. Some make you tan faster, while others support skin care and color longevity. Regardless of the tanning lotion you choose, it is important to familiarize yourself with its purpose. This will ensure you are using the right product for your specific tanning goals. You may also ask the professional tanning consultants at the local neighborhood tanning salon for help making your selection.

Continue reading to learn about the 3 most common indoor tanning lotions and how they differ from one another.


Also called maximizers, tanning accelerators are a common indoor tanning lotion used in the industry. They are formulated to emphasize and prolong tanning results. This means the skin achieves a base tan faster and retains its color longer. They are recommended for beginners because they do not contain any added color dyes or bronzing agents, but they do contain a lot of moisturizing and skin care agents. Once a beginner has achieved a base tan, they can move onto stronger, more aggressive indoor tanning lotions.


Tinglers, also referred to as hot action lotions, contain special active ingredients that stimulate micro-circulation in the skin. These active agents, commonly benzyl or methyl nicotinate, increase blood flow and deliver more oxygen to the skin cells. This promotes a deeper, longer-lasting tan in a shorter amount of time. Upon application, they will cause a tingling, burning sensation while tanning, followed by a cooling sensation. For these reasons and more, they are not recommended for first-time tanning clients. Before using a tingler, it is best to test an area of the skin first to see if you have any discomfort or adverse reaction. You may also talk to your trusted tanning consultant for professional advice.


If you are looking for a deeper, darker tan, a bronzer lotion is a great choice. Bronzers contain added coloring agents that deliver a deep, rich, dark tan. They are formulated with the same ingredient used in self-tanning products, dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which is a chemical that temporarily alters the cells of the skin. Bronzing lotions will render an instant tan, and then continue to darken the skin hours after tanning. For these reasons, they are recommended for those who already has a base tan and with tanning experience. And if you choose to tan with an indoor bronzer, just remember to always wash your hands after tanning!

A Brief Introduction to Tanning Beds

A Little History

Indianapolis Tanning Beds 317-257-8262

Indianapolis Tanning Beds 317-257-8262

Tanning beds are a luxury that allows us to keep a sun-kissed glow all year long. They give us the ability to control the intensity of light and the amount of exposure so that we can get the custom skin tone we desire. But indoor tanning beds weren’t always readily-available as they are today. They didn’t become popular in the United States until the 1980’s, after German scientist, Friedrich Wolff discovered them years before. This is where the well-known Wolff tanning beds got their start.

And long before tanning beds went mainstream, UV lighting was used for various therapeutic purposes because it promotes the production of vitamin D, which allows the body to absorb more calcium. This was especially beneficial to those with bone deficiencies and diseases like Ricketts. The introduction of indoor tanning in the U.S. was the start of a trend that would only gain momentum in terms of popularity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

Types of Indoor Tanning

As the indoor tanning industry continues to grow, new technologies and products are created and coupled with the use of indoor UV lamps, giving indoor tanning a whole new level of performance and results. Tanning beds are designed for safety and effectiveness, but also for comfort. There are several types of indoor tanning beds, all of which can fall into one of two categories: stand up or lay down.

Both types of beds are comfortable to use, and depending on the make and model, come with a variety of features, such as radios, aromatherapy, cooling fans, misting fans, face tanners, time control, red light therapy, face and arm lamps, and more. The amount and the type of bulbs used in tanning beds differ depending on the make and model. Varieties include beds with 8-60 UV bulbs at 100 watts each, 24-46 UV bulbs between 100 and 160 watts each, and more. The type, wattage, and age of the bulbs will influence their intensity.

Ways to Tan

Indianapolis Tanning Beds 317-257-8262

Indianapolis Tanning Beds 317-257-8262

There are two primary ways to tan indoors. The most common method is visiting a local tanning salon and using their products and services. This is a highly recommended and cost-effective way to tan indoors because tanning salons are literally a one-stop-shop for all your indoor tanning needs. They carry various tanning products, like lotions, moisturizers, bronzers, tinglers, lip balms, and more, all in a wide selection of brands to choose from. They also have a variety of tanning beds to choose from, including standard beds, mega-beds, lay down beds, stand up beds, and more. And since they offer tanning packages and memberships, the cost of tanning is very affordable.

Another way to tan is to purchase your very own tanning bed at a family leisure store or appliance store. There are various make and model tanning beds to choose from, all of which can be installed on your property where you like. You can tan in the comfort of your own home! But tanning beds are expensive, and range in price depending on the model you choose. You can expect to pay anywhere from $2000 to $6,000 or more for a new tanning bed.

The 3 Downfalls to At-Home Airbrush Spray Tanning Kits

Broad Ripple Spray Tanning  317-257-8262

Broad Ripple Spray Tanning 317-257-8262

If you frequently spray tan, then you have probably considered purchasing your own DIY kit and equipment to save yourself some time and money. But these kits are not likely to deliver the added privileges you are after.

That is why it is best to stick with professional airbrush spray tanning services. Continue reading to learn the top 3 downfalls to at-home airbrush spray tanning kits and equipment.


If you think it’s cheaper to purchase your own at-home equipment for spray tanning, think again. The cost is actually much higher. Not only are these kits heinously overpriced online and on shelves, they are never all-inclusive, which means you are forced to purchase several extra accessories in order for the kid to be complete. And of course this adds up, especially considering replacement parts needed down the line. The cost of spray tanning at your local tanning salon twice a month is much cheaper than the cost of maintaining an at-home spray tanning set up.


When you go to your local tanning salon to get your monthly spray tan, is the process completely out of control and messy? Well the answer to that question is “no.” That is because tanning salons retain professional equipment and training that allows them to provide premium spray tanning results, efficiently. It also helps to have a spray tanning technician apply product for a more even and balanced color tone. Do-it-yourself spray tanning kits are incredibly messy and complicated to use. They are also very difficult to learn how to use properly, and can take months or even years to get your application skills just right.


Most spray tanning kits do not come complete with all the proper equipment needed to efficiently apply the spray tanning product. For instance, one of the most common spray tanning kits available on the market today comes with a very small spray tanning wand, one similar to the airbrushes used at nail salons. How can you possibly cover the surface area you need to cover in the time you need to cover it with something that small? You can’t! So this kit, and many others, requires consumers to purchase a larger airbrush wand for an additional cost. And now it’s just one example.

How to Achieve the Best Spray Tan Results

When you visit your local tanning salon, you expect to walk out with the tan you have in mind. When it comes to spray tans, you must put some effort into it if you want the best results. Continue reading to learn what you and your spray tan technician can do to ensure your final color is lustrous and long-lasting.

Indianapolis Tanning Beds 317-257-8262

Indianapolis Tanning Beds 317-257-8262

Hydrate and Moisturize

The preparation needed to achieve the best spray tanning results must start days before your actual appointment. It is important to fully-hydrate and moisturize your skin, head to toe, and even more so in drier areas like elbows and heels. This hydration and moisturizing process should begin at least one week before your scheduled spray tan. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day, and use quality products with little-to-no fragrance to reduce the risk of skin irritation and lingering residue.

Wax and Shave

If you need to remove hair, whether by razor or wax, be sure to do so a full 48 hours before your spray tan. Shaving and waxing can irritation skin temporarily, and apply tanner to it during this irritation stage can jeopardize the evenness of your tan. Always give your skin enough time to calm down before your spray tanning session.


Just hair removal, exfoliating the skin has many benefits, but can temporarily upset the skin. Allow yourself 24 to 48 hours before spray tanning to ensure your results are even and long-lasting. This will give your skin enough time to return to its normal pH balance. Always use a non-oil exfoliant to reduce lingering residue on the skin.

pH Balance and Barrier Cream

Now that you are aware of all the things you can do to ensure a great spray tan, you should know a couple of things your technician should be doing for you. Using a pH balancer on the skin helps to avoid problems caused by residual residues on the skin from bandages, deodorant, perfume, and more. They should also use a barrier cream to help ensure even and long-lasting application.

How to Use Self Tanner to Contour

Contouring is not only an effective method for shaping and accentuating our best facial features, it’s recently gained widespread popularity for necks, collarbones, bust lines, and more. But why spend countless hours re-applying your contour, and wasting hundreds of dollars on replacement bronzers, when there is a better way? There is a long hidden secret used by celebrities to achieve a semi-permanent, lustrous contour, and it has always been around. That secret is self-tanner! Continue reading to learn how you can contour your arms, abs, legs, and buttocks with a self-tanner of your choice.

Contouring With Self Tanner

Broad Ripple Tanning Salon 317-257-8262

Broad Ripple Tanning Salon 317-257-8262

Before you start contouring with self-tanners, practice with bronzer to gauge where and how much you want to contour. Do not be afraid of the semi-permanency of self-tanning products. As long as you only apply a little bit at a time, in thin layers, you should not have a problem attaining the desired affect you’re after. And if you do contour incorrectly, a thin layer of self-tanner will fade in a few days after a few showers. With practice, you can get very precise and artistic with your contouring, and feel confident increasing your contouring capacity. You will be able to sculpt your arms, stomach, legs, and rear without months of intense exercise and dieting! All you need is a medium-sized makeup brush or cotton ball, and some quality self-tanning lotion.

Here’s a guide for getting started:

Contouring Arms

To find the proper area to contour on your arms, start by facing a mirror and pointing your index finger straight down to the floor. This will emphasis your tri-cep muscles on the back of your arms. This is where you can make your arms looked more toned with self-tanner! Using a medium-sized make-up brush, apply your self-tanner in thin layers to the crease directly under your tri-cep bulge. Next, look in the mirror again and flex your biceps (raise elbows and clinch fists). Trace under the area of muscle that dips in the middle of your bicep (half-moon shape), with thin layers of self-tanner. Do this for both arms to make them appear taught and toned.

Contouring Abs

Contouring abs is a bit more complicated since you don’t want to use lines that are too thick or too thin. Find the right width by starting small, and adding on as you go. Start by dipping your makeup brush in your self-tanner, and then trace the line from the middle of your cleavage down to your belly button. Next, draw 2 half ovals on each side of your belly button, starting at the rib cage and ending at your hip bones. Repeat this step a few times, while slightly overlapping the lines each time, to achieve an hourglass appearance.

Contouring Buttocks

Use the same techniques mentioned above, but instead, trace half-ovals directly on the lower, outer portion of your cheeks. Keep the middle and upper areas of your derriere light to achieve the illusion of a tighter rear end. But be sure not to cover too much of your buttocks by making the half ovals too thick. You only need a slight contour to get the desired illusion in this area.

Contouring Legs

Using your makeup brush, trace along the INNER sides of your legs where the muscle naturally occurs. Simply stand up straight, and then lift your leg in front of you. You will see your leg’s natural inner muscle line along the insides. Within these natural lines, apply a thin layer of self-tanner to make your legs appear more toned. Be sure to stay within the natural muscle lines. Next, point your leg downward and flex to reveal the front muscle called your quadriceps. Trace along the sides of your natural quad lines, starting from the bottom of your derriere and ending right above knee. But wait, you’re not done! Look to your lower legs and trace the outside of your calf muscle, starting just below your ankles and ending right below the knee cap.

Have Some Fun With Your Tan Lines!

Give yourself a fun sun tattoo before summer ends!

Broad Ripple Tanning Salon 317-257-8262

Broad Ripple Tanning Salon 317-257-8262

If you have been to an indoor tanning salon before, you have seen the fun little stickers and decals they sell for tanners that want a unique tan tattoo. But did you know you can customize your own sun tan tattoo by using hand-made designs, strategically-placed garments, cut-out stencils, and even Elmer’s® glue? Yes, we said glue! Of course you can also use a viscous lotion or cream too, but the traditional glue bottles have a narrow nozzle that helps with precision and intricate designs. Continue reading to learn some fun and interesting ideas for sun tan tattoos, and where to go for a great indoor tanning experience all year long!

Draw Your Own Design

Using standard school glue will give you range in designing and constructing intricate or unique shapes and images onto your skin. If you choose to draw your own sun tan tattoo with glue, it works best on the front side of your body, or in a place that is easily reachable. If you want something on your back, then you might have better luck with a self-cut stencil or decal. You can purchase large sticker sheets for under a dollar at any local fabrics or craft store. Or you can even cut and mesh multiple stickers together to get the shape you are looking for. After all, it’s just the outline that counts!

Cut-Out Swim Suits

Broad Ripple Tanning Salon 317-257-8262

Broad Ripple Tanning Salon 317-257-8262

If you are not in to drawing or sticking something on your skin, you can surf the web for thousands of modern bikinis and swimwear that comes with pre-cut designs that are stitched into the bathing suit, and in all the right spots. There are hipster bottoms with cut-outs of turtles, dolphins, and more in the hip, and even bikini bottoms with cute little cut-outs in the rear! These are inexpensive and add just the right amount of flare and individuality you are looking for in a sun tattoo.

Metallic or Temporary Tattoos

You can purchase and apply pre-made metallic tattoos at an affordable price, which are very popular and widely-available right now. Not only will look great while you wear them, they will leave behind a long-lasting and fun sun tattoo in their place!

Fun Sun Tattoo Ideas:

• Place a life-size decal in the shape of a gun on your back, halfway in your swim bottoms.
• Draw sun rays around your belly button.
• Write out a favorite phrase or word of inspiration in cursive.
• Wear lace undies and tan in private for an intricate, lacy design.
• Wear a thin bralette in the tanning bed for a permanent rib cage bra line.
• Use metallic henna tattoos on your hands and feet.
• Decal an entire arm or leg for a sun tattoo sleeve.

Deciding Between Stand-Up and Lay-Down Tanning Beds

Indianapolis Tanning Salon

Indianapolis Tanning Salon 317-257-8262

When you visit your neighborhood tanning salon, you are given a wide selection of options for tanning. You can choose the sunless route and opt for an airbrushed spray tan, or you can choose between a stand-up or lay-down tanning bed. For many people, beds are the preferred choice since they have been around for so long, but with the new innovative tanning bed technologies available today, many salons are adding stand-up versions as well.

With this new tanning option, many people are interested but confused about the difference between standup and laydown tanning booths. If you are one of these people, continue reading and decide for yourself which bed meets your tanning preferences.

Tanning Booth Preferences

Overall, both versions of tanning beds are very effective and comfortable, making the choice entirely up to personal preference. In all cases, it is important to discuss your tanning goals with your salon’s tanning consultant to ensure you always tan safely. Here are the major differences and similarities between stand-up tanning beds and lay-down tanning beds:

Lay-Down Booths

Lay-down tanning booths are very popular because they are known for relaxation. You can simply lay, rest, and tan in a matter of minutes. But because you are laying on glass, pressure points are created between the skin and the bed, which prevents the UV-rays from fully soaking into the skin. This can cause tanning creases and lighter areas under the arms, on the shoulder blades, above and below the buttocks, and more. To avoid this in a laydown bed, you need to adjust your position periodically, which is easier in a stand up booth.

Stand-Up Tanning Beds

Standup Tanning Bed Indianapolis IN

Standup Tanning Bed 317-257-8262

Stand-up booths offer more space, which allows tanners to move around easier. Inside the booth, you can raise your arms, lower your arms, bend your legs, lean, turn your head, and so forth. The bulbs are often stronger, delivering a faster tan. But because of the intensity of the bulbs, time limits for stand-up beds are generally lower than laydown versions. This makes it a great choice for those who are uncomfortable staying in a tanning bed for too long. The lamps used on the inside of standup beds are made with specialized reflectors that help spread the light completely around the chamber. This of course also helps to tan more evenly, preventing those tell-tale tanning bed creases and missed areas, like on the shoulder blades, under the arms, on the lower back, and under the buttocks.

Many people also like standup beds because they feel better about not having to touch the glass for hygiene purposes (even though there is never a need for concern since tanning salon staff keeps beds perfectly sanitized at all times!). The downsides to standup beds mostly have to do with comfort. Some people find it tiresome to stand the whole time, and prefer to lay down and relax. Also, standup beds require the use of eye goggles with nose adhesive so they stay on your face while you tan. It can sometimes be obnoxious keeping them in place when you are standing up.

Pair Bronzers with Prep Lotions

Bronzing lotions are fantastic for delivering an instant and delayed tanning boost. But the insider secret about bronzers is that they are not always enough. You may need to add extra steps to your tanning routine in order to get the long-lasting results you desire. For instance, expert tanners pair their bronzer with a “prep” lotion. They work similar to your foundation primer or nail polish base coat. Prep lotions support overall better tanning results. Not only do they boost your bronzers development, they balance and correct your color, nourish the skin with essential vitamins, and extend the life of your color.

Recommended Prep Lotion: Designer Skin Color Perfecting Primer – 8 oz. – $25

Exfoliate Weekly

The top secrete key to a flawless tan is routine exfoliation. This process removes dehydrated skin cells, dead skin, and lotion buildup. It is best to exfoliate once a week to keep your tan bright and seamless, and to get the best results from your tanning lotion.

Recommended Exfoliating Scrub: Norvell Prime Pre-Sunless Tanning Body Buff Kit – $5

Use Tan Extenders

Many tanners think they can just slap on some lotion and hit the beds, or get a quick spray and be on their way. But expert tanning results require post-tanning work. Tan extenders are the best kept secret in the insider world of expert tanning, and are now widely available at any local tanning salon or convenient store. They don’t just extend your color, they make it look better!

Recommended Tan Extender: Swedish Beauty Endless Moisturizer Tan Extender – 8.5 oz. – $40

Change it Up

Don’t stick with the same tanning routine. To keep your skin guessing, and susceptible to great color, change things up every now and again! Switch between different bronzers, lotions, beds, tanning styles, and more. This is a great well-kept secret in the tanning industry! Consult your local tanning salon for professional advice and recommendations for your unique skin tone and tanning goals.
