Tanlines of Spotswood's tanning consultants will work with you to help assess your skin type and needs and recommend the best product to help you look and feel your best. The following provides some additional detail to help educate you on the differences.
BRONZERS-A bronzer is a tanning lotion that has sunless tanner mixed into it, and contains ingredients that "dye" the skin to a dark hue.
TINGLE-Tingle lotions have chemicals that cause an increase in blood flow to the skin. The increased blood flow brings extra oxygen and other nutrients to the skin to assist during the melanin production process during tanning
BODYBLUSH-Body blush is A lotion that gives the effect of tingle without the burning and heat sensation
INTENSIFIERS/MAXIMISERS-Intensifiers/Maximisers are the basic indoor tanning lotions. They are engineered to maximize UV-stimulated melanin results, which is what produces a tan. Intensifiers are offered at many price points determined primarily by the types and amounts of ingredients in the lotions. These lotions generally have no bronzers.
To help clarify what you need, some lotion manufacturers such as California Tan have a (3) Step Process to make the selection a little easier.
STEP 1-BASE TAN BUILDERS
These first step lotions are used to build a "base tan" and are used until the tanner feels he/she is not getting any additional color or has reached a "tanning plateau".
STEP 2-DARK TAN BOOSTERS
These lotions are intended to be used once you have established a base tan, and are interested in developing a deeper, darker color. Select products incorporate bronzers, tingle, and cooling ingredients.
STEP 3-DARK TAN EXTENDERS
These lotions should be used daily by both Step 1 & 2 tanners to moisturize, enhance, and prolong your tanning results.
