Tan Accelerators and Sunbed Creams are essential to the tanning process for many reasons.

They help to promote the tanning process

Everybody is different and tans at different rates. Some tan faster, some slower. This is not just due to skin type, but the condition of the skin and tanning history. Modern tan accelerators and sunbed creams contain specific ingredients that are absorbed into the skin to encourage the movement of melanocytes to the surface of the skin, maximising the tanning potential of your session.

The Tanning Shop Salons stock lotions for all eventualities including some fantastic aftercare lotions, tan accelerators, extenders and moisturisers

Tanning Tip: Exfoliation is key! It is really important to thoroughly exfoliate before starting a UV tanning programme or having a spray tan. Exfoliating before a UV programme means that you are tanning new skin cells, not cells that are due to be sloughed off. A patchy spray tan result is due to not exfoliating in the majority of cases!

Why should you use a Tan Accelerator or Sunbed Cream Whilst Using a Sunbed? - The Tanning Shop

Sunbed Creams replace moisture lost during the tanning session

During the tanning session, we perspire and this can dry the skin. Dry skin reflects light and as dry skin cells shed more frequently, if a shallow tan is developed, it does not last. Using a UV specific sunbed lotion during your session replaces moisture lost to prevent the skin drying out.
