More Than A Glow
Several health benefit claims such as improved appearance, enhanced mood, and increased vitamin D levels have been attributed to tanning. Exposure to sunlight has been linked to improved energy and elevated mood, and can even help mitigate skin conditions such as psoriasis. Please consult a physician for information regarding physical and mental health conditions.
Why Use Lotion in a Tanning Bed?
You might think that you don’t need to apply lotion before using a tanning bed; however, finding an appropriate tanning lotion for inside a tanning bed will actually work wonders in helping you achieve a glowing, even tan.
Tanning lotions can help keep your skin hydrated during the tanning bed process. This step becomes essential for those with dry skin, as the drier your skin is, the less likely you’ll achieve an even tan. Contrary to sunscreens, tanning lotions help speed up the tanning process.
We will not allow an outside tanning lotion, alcohol based or oil based tanning lotion to be used because it is not the best for our beds. Only aloe and water based lotions are approved for use in our beds, and are available for purchase at DaLee Tanning Salon.
The brownish pigment produced by special cells in the base layer of the skin determines the individual’s tan. As the skin is exposed to the ultraviolet light, the melanin is activated and combines with protein cells that rise to the skin’s surface, thus producing a tan. The amount of melanin in your body determines how quickly and dark you tan. The more melanin produced and exposure time an individual has, the faster and deeper the individual will tan.
The tan produced by the OVATION™ line is a deep, rich "COSMETIC" tan. However, regardless of how dark an individual may tan on this system, it will not provide adequate protection against overexposure to natural sunlight or UVB tanning systems.
