What are the benefits of tanning in a tanning bed?
Tanning beds are used to provide an environment that allows for cosmetic tanning. Many people believe they look good and feel better when they have a tan.
Will the tanning lotion speed up the tanning process?
The products that we sell are designed to topically provide vitamins and skin care ingredients that may be depleted during tanning and many contain cosmetic bronzers to help you look darker, faster.
Why Is Indoor Tanning "Smart Tanning?"
Indoor tanning, if you can develop a tan, is an intelligent way to minimize the risk of sunburn while maximizing the enjoyment and benefit of having a tan. We call this SMART TANNING because tanners are taught by trained tanning facility personnel how their skin type reacts to sunlight and how to avoid sunburn outdoors, as well as in a salon.

How are Designer Skin lotions better than what I can purchase at the drugstore or supermarket?
Over-the-counter lotions do not contain the necessary ingredients that will maximize your tanning results and extend the life of your tan. Moreover, mass market products do not replenish as effectively any lost moisturization that occurs during the tanning process. Designer Skin lotions are "bio-engineered" specifically for indoor tanning.
I think I tan better without a lotion. So why should I use one?
This erroneous belief can be easily rectified once clients actually understand the tanning process. For example, indoor tanning and UV exposure can be dehydrating to the skin. Designer Skin lotions will help to replenish any moisture that has been depleted during the tanning session, thereby improving your results. Not only will you get a darker tan, you will tan more quickly and it will last longer. In addition, Designer Skin lotions contain specific ingredients that promote tanning and melanin synthesis.
I can't feel the "tingle" anymore from my lotion. Why is that?
If you are an avid tingle tanner, oftentimes your skin acclimates to the tingle and you won't feel the sensation anymore. Despite this fact, the tingle is still working even if you are not feeling the heat. As with hair care products, we recommend switching products from time to time to "jump start" your skin.
How does tingle work? What does it do?
Tingle products deliver a warming, reddening effect on the skin. The active ingredient in Designer Skin's tingle lotions is Benzyl Nicotinate. Tingle products increase the skin cell's microcirculation and oxygenation to produce deep, dark tanning results. Tingles are for your advanced tanners and are not recommend for beginning tanners or individuals with sensitive skin. Tingle products are also effective on hard-to-tan areas such as women's legs. As with all tingle products, extra care should be taken when handling children and pets as the reddening effect could be transferred to skin even hours after use.
How does a dual bronzer work?
Dual bronzers provide bronze gratification from immediate cosmetic bronzers such as caramel and walnut extract as well as from DHA sunless tanning agents, which oxidize over a few hours with the natural proteins in the skin to develop even deeper, darker results. It recommended waiting at least 4 hours after tanning with any bronzer to ensure results.
How can I stop the tingle action on the skin?
If you do not carry a "stop action" type product in your salon, you may try using Angel Daily Moisturizer to mitigate the heat sensation. This will not stop the tingle, but it will alleviate it to a certain extent. Taking a shower with "cool" water and mild soap will also help ease the tingle. Never use warm or hot water as this will open up the pores and cause an even greater, intense tingle sensation.
