Skin Care at European Tan
The secret to a fast, natural European Tan is finding the perfect combination of high-quality equipment and results-driven lotions for your skin. Not only does European Tan have the best of both, but we also employ an incredibly well-trained staff who can help you pick out the combination of beds and lotions that best suits your skin type and goals.
Sun tanning’s main detriment to your overall skin care is that the process reduces the natural moisture levels in your skin. This is why it is extremely important to replenish that moisture with sun tanning lotions both before and after tanning. Let a European Tan tanning consultant help you find all the products you’ll need to stay moisturized while you maintain a glowing tan.
Accelerators help you build your initial base tan. They deliver essential moisture and nutrients to your skin that can help jump start the tanning process. These products are made specifically for tanners who are just getting started with developing their initial color.
These special lotions are called “bronzers” because they contain up to 3 different ingredients that add and enhance color on the skin while helping you stay moisturized during your tanning session. They are for regular tanners or for tanners who have reached a plateau with their current color. These tanners may have developed light base tans, but can’t seem to get the deep, dark color they’re really after. Bronzers can kick your European Tan into overdrive, taking your skin from having a nice bit of color to a deep, dark tan.
Tanning extenders are specialized lotions designed to do exactly what their name indicates: extend the life of your European Tan. They are made to replenish your skin with all the nutrients, vitamins, and moisture that are lost during UV exposure. Skin that is healthier and more moisturized will hold a tan for much longer.
A moisturizer of some sort should be applied after every sun tanning visit, no matter your skin type or what stage your tan is currently in. That’s why tan extenders are a no-brainer; it only makes sense to replenish lost nutrients and moisture to extend your tan.
Your face is the main feature that sets you apart from everyone else in the world. It’s the part of you that attracts the most attention and, consequently, the part that you’ll probably spend the most time primping. Unfortunately, the skin on your face is also one of the most sensitive and vulnerable areas of skin on your body. You simply cannot treat it the same way you would treat the rest of your skin. This is especially true when it comes to tanning.
Facial lotions have the same basic functions as tan extenders (to moisturize your skin and replenish essential nutrients), but facial lotions are specially formulated to be much gentler on your face. Often the facial lotions will incorporate a bronzer or tint that is more suitable for your face and will concentrate the chemical formula on firming the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
