The popular websites comments on the rising trend of indoor tanning, quoting 68% increase in sales for the tanning industry in America alone. However there are drawbacks to indoor tanning with the most problematic being the financial drawbacks and physical side effects. Indoor tanning has been proven to be less harmful than the sun's rays, but long periods of exposure age and dry the skin much in the manner of sun tanning, and the long and frequent sessions provides a sizeable dent in consumer pockets.
Indoor tanning lotions are the industry's solution to this dermatological dilemma. Tanning bed lotions are engineered to maximize the results of tanning sessions. These lotions contain essential nutrients necessary for creating a deep natural-looking tan. While seemingly expensive, tanning lotions actually save time and money by providing a better tan in fewer sessions.
Indoor tanning lotions also come packed with moisturizing ingredients. Moist skin tans faster and more efficiently than dry skin resulting in a better tan in fewer weeks. Furthermore active ingredients supplement the skin's cells with the same proteins that enhance the tanning process naturally. The main active ingredient in tanning lotions is Tyrosine which produces melanin. Melanin is the pigment responsible for causing skin to darken. Tyrosine is added to supplement the body's normal level of tyrosine at the skins cell level thereby speeding the tanning process and preserving the tan for longer periods.
Indoor tanning lotions also help counteract the drying effects of heat and light associated with tanning and keep skin supple, young and healthy. The latest dermatological technology in indoor tanning lotions includes oxidants that prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
