What to take to tanning salon? Tanning lotion or SPF cream?

For those of you who are just starting their tanning adventure, a visit to the tanning salon may be surrounded by plenty of mysteries. So, how to start tanning? How to prep skin for tanning? How to make your tan last longer? These are just some of your most asked questions. In today's article we will focus on what you should bring to the tanning salon.

Tanning lotion with SPF - hot or not?

You can’t use baby oil or SPF moisturizer in the tanning bed – they will hinder tanning. So in this case, it’s actually worth saying no to that SPF to get a stronger dark tan!

What is the best tanning lotion?

The fact that we recommend avoiding SPF in the tanning bed does not mean that you should sunbathe all “dry” – it will not accelerate the tanning process in any way. We simply cannot imagine a tanning session without professional cosmetics. Tanning lotions will give you a faster tan, more depth, and take care of your skin while they’re at it! You can choose a tanning lotion fit perfectly to your needs - in addition to accelerating or bronzing properties, some tanning lotions help fight cellulite and slow down the aging process, while others have a soothing or nourishing effect.

MAGNIFIQUE is one of our best-selling tanning accelerators. In addition to speeding up the tanning process, this lotion also has bronzing properties which provide an intense dark shade. The Push-Up complex with coffee extract leaves your skin elastic and firm.


BOOSTER, a tanning accelerator that stimulates the production of melanin for much faster tanning results. Packed with natural nutrients and vitamins to moisturize your skin at the deepest levels. It’s the perfect tanning bed lotion for fair skin, first-time tanning bed users, as well as for experienced tanning enthusiasts.


Facial tanning lotion and why everyone needs it!

Anyone who ever decides to treat themselves to indoor tanning must remember to take special care of their face. How to tan your face in a tanning bed safely? The best way is to use the appropriate facial indoor tanning lotion. We recommend ANTI-AGING tanning accelerator! It will take care of your skin and give it a youthful glow. Your skin will thank you for it!


What is the best after tanning lotion?

Taking care of your body after each tanning session is just as important as prepping your skin before a visit to the tanning salon. And we’ve got just the thing for you! LA PLAYA TAN & GLOW is a shimmer body lotion that will emphasize your dark brown skin thanks to golden particles and extend your tan durability thanks to ingredients that support skin pigmentation. This shimmer body lotion has an intense moisturizing, nourishing and soothing effect. You simply have to put it to a test!


Tanning bed accessories & cosmetics

What to bring to a tanning bed? Now that you remember about tanning lotions, you cannot forget about make-up remover! Before each tanning session, you should wash off your make-up to avoid any stains or streaks (especially when your foundation contains SPF). And since we’re talking about makeup removal – remember about cotton balls or tissues. True – both make-up remover and cosmetic pads should be available at the tanning salon, but it is worth staying cautious and bringing them with you anyway. 

We recommend that you get yourself special tanning goggles that will protect your eyes from excessive radiation and skin aging.

What to take to tanning salon?

If it’s your first time at the tanning salon, you must take:

  1. Professional indoor tanning lotion. You can choose from tanning accelerators, bronzing lotion or tingle tanning lotion.
  2. Facial tanning lotion to protect the skin on your face or a towel to cover your face during the tanning session.
  3. After sun lotion with a deeply moisturizing and soothing effect.
  4. Facial make-up remover, cotton balls or tissues.
