Secret Tanning Tip: “What Lotion Should I Use?”

Share This

Whenever I visit my salons, I am frequently asked the question, “What lotion would you recommend I tan with?” While I definitely have my own personal favorites, it is really important to me to first identify your tanning goals and what is most important to you about your products before I make a recommendation.

For example, skincare is always No. 1 for me, which is why I love our luxury products. They have the best antiaging properties combined with the best tanning ingredients. Also, during the winter months I prefer to use pure/intensifying lotions because they help me produce more of my natural glow without the added cosmetic boost. So first, what type of tanner are you: beginner or advanced?

For a beginning tanner I would recommend starting with a Pure/Intensifier. This category of lotion will help you tan to your own natural abilities but up to 70% faster. Currently Pumped! by Designer Skin is my favorite – the silicone inside is perfect for softening rough winter skin. Once you have built your base tan and need a boost in color, try out a Natural Bronzer or Cosmetic Bronzer.

A Natural Bronzer, like JWOWW’s Natural Black Bronzer, uses ingredients like black walnut and other extracts to give your skin an immediate glow after tanning. Our Cosmetic Bronzers are a blend of natural and cosmetic bronzing ingredients that give you an immediate and delayed boost in color. For best results with a cosmetic bronzer, apply it in even circular motions, wash your palms after use, and allow 2-3 hours for the cosmetic boost to develop. For best results, advanced tanners should alternate between Pure and Bronzing lotions.

Once you know if a Pure or a Bronzer is right for you, let’s figure out your style. At Sun Tan City we have several styles of products:
