Tanning oil should not be used when using a tanning bed. Aside from the damage you may do to the equipment, the oil will increase the damage done to your skin and doesn't provide SPF protection.

Can you use dry oil for outdoor tanning in a tanning bed?

No dont use dry oil for tanning, outdoor tanning for some time is a better idea. I am an asian, my color used to be so white that my pals used to call me a snowy vampire with black hair. I apply a thin layer of olive oil after my bath. Olive oil makes the skin more colorful. Do not try tanning beds, or direct tanning in the sun. After prolonged exposure to direct sun heat, my skin gets burnt orange instead of the normal tan, moreover it damages the texure and increases the wrinkles. Use a UV protection cream of SPF 45 to avoid blemishes & wrinkles. Instead of dry oil, try using olive oil, now I look drastically olive.

When tanning in an indoor tanning bed does cocoa butter lotion help you tan?

If your coco butter is oil based it will ruin the bed! the beds are made of acrylic and I know for a fact oil based lotions will ruin the bed because I work at a tanning salon and just last week a man ruined the bed by using another lotion not approved by the salon. The best tanning lotions on the market are California Tan products. They range from $20-$130. Cypher is their best product out now. If you are going to use coco butter to to maintain your tan, only use it in outdoor tanning. *Topical Tan Salons Have good oils, lotions and so forth you can go and purchase them and receive 1 FREE in less than a week you can have the perfect tan you want. It's also safe to be pregnant as long as you are under 6 or 7 months in. There are beds stand ups and more. -Tyrza
