Bronzers are often added to tanning products to enhance and darken the tan, blend unevenly tanned areas, and enrich the color of the tan. Bronzers work to give you a “HEALTHY GLOW” when used daily. Streaking is virtually unheard of because the effects are gradual. This concept is extremely popular. These are effective for people who tan indoors, outdoors, or don’t get any UV exposure at all.
An intensifier/accelerator lotion is a lotion that has ingredients in it that will hydrate and tan your skin. There are no bronzers in this type of lotion. It has ingredients that work with the melanin in your skin. You will only see the color that your melanin produces. There will be no bronzers to darken your tan while your tan develops naturally.
Tingle: for experienced tanners!.
Tingle lotions contain ingredients which cause micro-circulation. Micro-circulation brings blood to the surface of the skin. When the oxygen in your blood rises to the surface of the skin, the UV light can reach it much more easily. This process will deepen your tan to a new level.
When using a tingle lotion, you may experience any or all of the following that may last approximately one hour, although these effects may last longer based on your skin type: Mild to intense tingling of the skin Slight to intense reddening of the skin Mild to intense heat on the surface of the skin.
You should NEVER use a tingle lotion on your face. The skin is much too thin and this could result in the popping of a capillary. If you want to lessen the tingle feeling of the lotion, mix it with an accelerator or bronzer. You will have an amazingly dark tan because it will push you beyond your tanning plateau.
Tan extenders are moisturizers used for after tanning & will extend the life of your tan dramatically.
Moisturizing your skin with a tan extender is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your glow.
