Beach season is once again upon us. And with ample opportunity to spend fun in the sun, people are looking to get a good tan beforehand. A base tan is a necessity for having fun and looking great on the beach. It will do wonders to prevent burning in the sun. And a good base tan ensures that you can actually lay out in the sun and enjoy it. But a lot of people who’d like to take advantage of tanning salons to get their base tan don’t know how to go about it. There’s a few things to remember which will allow anyone to have a great and relaxing time at the tanning salon.
The first thing to consider is what you’ll actually wear within the tanning beds. There’s some irony in the fact that modesty will be present when considering walking around on the beach. It’s perhaps the location where we wear the absolute minimum when in public. But at the same time, we’re all conditioned to find that acceptable. It can just feel a bit odd to lay around with nothing or at least almost nothing on when in a public building. But there’s really nothing to be scared of. The beds are private, and always fully sanitized.
Because of this it’s usually best to wear as little as you’re comfortable with. Ideally you won’t wear anything at all. This will ensure that you get full exposure all over your body. This not only leads to full and even tans, but ensures that there’s no tanlines. Tanlines can be an issue because it limits what suits you’ll be able to wear later on. If you’re fine with only one type of bathing suit than it shouldn’t be an issue. But if you, say, want to use both one and two piece suits than it’s a good idea to get a full body tan. And in general you should always go for the smallest amount of covered skin that you feel will represent what you want to wear on the beach.
The next thing to consider is lotion. There’s a wide variety of different tanning lotions out there. And each of them comes with unique benefits. The two main types are moisturising lotions and bronzing lotions. The former will help to ensure that your skin doesn’t dry out during the tanning process. Tanning is essentially like sitting something in the sun for a long time. It not only produces a beautiful color, but it can also remove moisture. The moisturizing lotions ensure that your skin is revitalized and moisturized during the process.
The bronzing lotions will, as the name suggests, help to create a stronger bronzed look for one’s skin. Not all tans are the same, and sometimes a session will produce different results. Bronzing lotions help to ensure the absolute best looking results. Though of course the best results will be found from lotions which work to produce both effects during a session.
