We hear this question all the time, so we wanted to post our answer, and the reasoning behind it.  We have also included some information on the different types of lotions available at Expressions Tanning.

The answer is YES! You should definitely use an indoor tanning lotion when tanning indoors.

The main reason is to help keep essential nutrients in the skin, and to keep it moisturized during the tanning process. Dry skin sheds from the body, and when your skin sheds it will take your tan with it. By keeping your skin moisturized your skin will tan more evenly and you will maintain your tan longer.

Another reason for using indoor tanning lotion is to accelerate the effects of your tanning session. There are many types of lotions, which will help you achieve your desired results.

Accelerator Lotion- An Accelerator is a base lotion. They are used to maintain moisture and boost melanin production. Using an accelerator will only get your skin as dark as it can “naturally” get. To go beyond your natural level you will need to use a lotion with Bronzer or Tingle.

Bronzing Lotion-   A Bronzer is a tanning lotion (normally designed for a tanning bed) that contains either a self-tanner or a bronzer in it.  What this does is helps speed up the tanning process.  When used correctly a bronzer tanning lotion can really expedite the tanning process and give a nice glow. We highly recommend using a bronzer if you are looking for more than a base tan.

Tingle Lotion- Tingle is an ingredient that is added to some lotions to stimulate the epidermal layer of the skin. This brings the blood closer to the surface of the skin, and because blood brings melanin with it you experience a darker tanning experience.  Tingle is recommended for the experienced tanner.

We have many lotions to help you achieve your desired results.

We look forward to helping you choose one specific to your needs!

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010
Are you wondering what program is best for you? Here is more information about our available programs, and whom we recommend them for in order to be the most cost efficient. Life……Getting Better By The Minute!

Memberships- There are currently 3 levels of Memberships offered at Expressions Tanning. All Memberships are a combination of the many services we offer, and range from $29.99 a month to $79.99 a month. The best one for you depends on the frequency of your preferred services. We recommend memberships to anyone who enjoys multiple services from our salon. These services include, Tanning, UV Free Tanning, Hydration Station, Lumiere Facial, Teeth Whitening, and Boutique purchases.

Unlimited Tanning- Our Unlimited Tanning program offers you the freedom to tan, without having to worry about running out of sessions. Our Unlimited Tanning programs range from $17.99 a month to $115.00 a month, depending on the level of tanning you prefer. We recommend our Unlimited Tanning program to those who will be tanning frequently month to month.

Tanning Passes- Our Tanning Passes come in a Single or a 10-Session pass. A Single Pass ranges from $5.00-$18.50 and is recommended if you are tanning for an occasion, or do not plan on tanning on a regular basis. Our 10-Session passes range from $40.00-$140.00 and are recommended if you will be tanning a couple times a month, or you’re not a frequent tanner.

The end of Summer doesn’t have to mean the end of your summer glow!

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010
Labor Day has come and gone, and for some that means the end of summer as well.

Consequently, the sun kissed complexion fades away through fall- on some, anyway. Others choose to keep their golden glow throughout the year.

In fact many people prefer having sun-kissed skin all year, even if its just a lighter shade. Having a golden glow has been shown to improve self-confidence in many. “I think having a tan complexion helps you look younger, thinner, and makes you glow,” said Cindy of South Jordan.

At Expressions Tanning we have 5 levels of tanning beds for your preferred tanning experience. We also have the Mystic & Airbrush spray tanning for those of you who prefer to get your bronze on UV Free.

So, if you are one of the many who don’t want to see your summer glow fade with the temperature, come into Expressions Tanning today!

We look forward to seeing you!

UV FREE Tanning- Which method is best for me?

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010
There are many applications for a sunless tan.  At Expressions Tanning we have two methods to help you achieve that golden glow. You can use our Mystic Spray Booth, or the Personal Airbrush method.

Of these, the Airbrush method is the most effective, due to its personal application, and uniform result. In addition, defining certain areas to give a realistic look, or restricting the application for folds, elbows, and hands, will produce a beautiful all over tan appearance.

The Mystic booth will provide more privacy, and a uniform all over spray. It may not provide you with the enhanced effects you wish to accomplish, however its convenience is great for last minute tanning needs, since no appointment is needed.

Both methods use a deep brown solution, so… NO ORANGE EVER!

Regardless of your UV Free Tanning preference, remember at Expressions Tanning we are always committed to your full satisfaction. We look forward to seeing you!

Airbrush Tanning is by appointment only, so call today!
