What Tanning Lotion To Start With?

August 7, 2013 in Tanning Lotions, Tanning Tips by admin

It’s inevitable. You walk into a tanning salon for the first time, a little nervous, but you don’t want to look stupid so you are hesitant to ask to many questions. You go along with the receptionist and nod your head as it you understood every word and assume that you can figure it out later. Hopefully you have an attendant that can recognize your newbie status and walk you through the process however this is not always the case. If you are smart, and I know you are because you are reading this, you have done a little research before starting out.

Beyond the basics of how to use the tanning bed (turning it on and pulling the top down, yes I know people who tanned several times before figuring out that the top comes down) and how to use goggles comes the question of which lotion to start with. You might think you should get the strongest one you can afford and go for broke but this is not the case.

There a step process to tanning. You want to start with a good acceleration that also has a lot of moisture and the right levels of acceleration to build your base tan. It’s important because if you choose an advanced lotion you might overexpose or worse use a hot tingle that you weren’t prepared for. Start with a beginner lotion such as Hoss Sauce Dark and tan a few times with it. Your base tan will start to build and then you can step up to a stronger lotion. This gives you the right balance and helps you build a darker, longer lasting tan.
