When you Tann or sitting in the sun or under a lamp to go brown your are actually burning yourself - (if you tan for too long your skin will blister and you may have to go to hospital for burn treatment).

Thus tanning is harmful and destructive to the skin cells and the skin becomes denatured and goes wrinkly faster, you may also develop brown spots and in extreme cases skin cancers.

Tanning accelerators DO help quicken the tanning process. Dry skin will reflect the UV rays that make you tan. By using the accelerator, the UV rays get absrbed into the skin, making you tan faster. TANNING WITHOUT LOTIONS IN A TANNING BED IS A WASTE OF TANNING TIME AND MONEY!

Are tanning bed lotions only for tanning beds?

Nope! Tanning lotions work by being activated by UV light, so whether your indoor tanning or outdoor tanning, you can still use a tanning lotion. Using a lotion specifically for tanning will dramatically help boost your color to get darker faster, plus it has a lot of vitamins and minerals to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
