Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the benefits of tanning in a tanning bed?
Tanning beds are used to provide an environment that allows
for cosmetic tanning. Many people look good and feel better
when they have a tan.
Will the tanning lotion speed up the tanning process?
The products that we sell are designed to topically provide
vitamins and skin care ingredients that may be depleted
during tanning and many contain cosmetic bronzers to help
you look darker, faster.
Why Is Indoor Tanning “Smart Tanning?”
Indoor tanning, if you can develop a tan, is an intelligent
way to minimize the risk of sunburn while maximizing the
enjoyment and benefit of having a tan. We call this SMART
TANNING because tanners are taught by trained tanning facility
personnel how their skin type reacts to sunlight and how
to avoid sunburn outdoors, as well as in a salon. For more
information, visit www.theita.com or www.tanningtruth.com.
How are Designer Skin lotions better than what I can
purchase at the drugstore or supermarket?
Over-the-counter lotions do not contain the necessary ingredients
that will maximize your tanning results and extend the life
of your tan. Moreover, mass market products do not replenish
as effectively any lost moisturization that occurs during
the tanning process. Designer Skin lotions are “bio-engineered”
specifically for indoor tanning.
I think I tan better without a lotion. So why should
I use one?
This erroneous belief can be easily rectified once clients
actually understand the tanning process. For example, indoor
tanning and UV exposure can be dehydrating to the skin.
Designer Skin lotions will help to replenish any moisture
that has been depleted during the tanning session, thereby
improving your results. Not only will you get a darker tan,
you will tan more quickly and it will last longer. In addition,
Designer Skin lotions contain specific ingredients that
promote tanning and melanin synthesis.
I can’t feel the “tingle” anymore
from my lotion. Why is that?
If you are an avid tingle tanner, oftentimes your skin acclimates
to the tingle and you won’t feel the sensation anymore.
Despite this fact, the tingle is still working even if you
are not feeling the heat. As with hair care products, we
recommend switching products from time to time to “jump
start” your skin.
How does tingle work? What does it do?
Tingle products deliver a warming, reddening effect on the
skin. The active ingredient in Designer Skin’s tingle
lotions is Benzyl Nicotinate. Tingle products increase the
skin cell’s microcirculation and oxygenation to produce
deep, dark tanning results. Tingles are for your advanced
tanners and are not recommend for beginning tanners or individuals
with sensitive skin. Tingle products are also effective
on hard-to-tan areas such as women’s legs. As with
all tingle products, extra care should be taken when handling
children and pets as the reddening effect could be transferred
to skin even hours after use.
How does a dual bronzer work?
Dual bronzers provide bronze gratification from immediate
cosmetic bronzers such as caramel and walnut extract as
well as from DHA sunless tanning agents, which oxidize over
a few hours with the natural proteins in the skin to develop
even deeper, darker results. It recommended waiting at least
4 hours after tanning with any bronzer to ensure results.
How can I stop the tingle action on the skin?
If you do not carry a “stop action” type product
in your salon, you may try using Angel Daily Moisturizer
to mitigate the heat sensation. This will not stop the tingle,
but it will alleviate it to a certain extent. Taking a shower
with “cool” water and mild soap will also help
ease the tingle. Never use warm or hot water as this will
open up the pores and cause an even greater, intense tingle
Why do I have these circles on my shoulders, buttocks,
and/or lower waist that won’t tan?
These are called “pressure points”, where the
most amount of pressure is on your body when reclining in
the bed. The blood flow is constricted in those areas and
that is why they don’t seem to tan at all. Your best
bet is to alternate your positions when tanning.
What is a good lotion to recommend for the male clients?
Some of Designer Skin’s most popular sellers among
the male clientele are Liberate, Tao, Sheer Wisdom, Worship
and Hero Worship. These lotions seem to appeal to our male
clients because of the unisex packaging and fragrances.
How do I know which lotion to recommend for my customer?
Ask this question, “Are you happy with the level of
color your body naturally produces with a tan?” Their
answer will help you determine the “type” of
lotion to suggest. If their answer to this question is “no”,
you can assume they would like to be darker. A bronzer would
be ideal since bronzing lotions boost the natural tan. Offer
a couple of selections of that “type” of lotion
to your customer. They will then choose based on preferred
fragrance, skin care benefits, or even which packaging appeals
to them most.
What is the benefit of using a lotion that contains
Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp Seed Oil is a humectant that pulls moisture from the
air to the surface of the skin. It is a skin care ingredient
that provides powerful hydration. This is a wonderful ingredient
in a tanning lotion because UV exposure can be dehydrating
to the skin. In addition, Hemp Seed Oil contains essential
fatty acids which help ingredients penetrate into the lipid
layers of the skin for increased efficacy. A great lotion
to try is More More More but we do offer many.
Can I use lotion on my face?
The facial area is much more delicate and more likely to
have allergic reactions in comparison to the rest of the
body. In fact, fragrance is one of the most common reasons
for cosmetic allergic reactions on the face. That is why
we recommend using products specifically designed for the
delicate facial area. Designer Skin does have facial accelerators
and bronzers that are fragrance free and/or hypoallergenic
that is specifically designed for the face.
How do I get the excess tingle lotion of my acrylics?
Sometimes tingle lotions can remain on the acrylics after
tanning. Wipe the surface of the acrylic with a towel to
get as much excess lotion off as possible. Spray sanitizer
on the acrylic and let it sit for a minute, then wipe thoroughly
again with the unused portion of the towel.
Does Showering Affect A Tan?
Some clients have been misinformed about taking a shower
after tanning. They were led to believe that, somehow, their
tan would get washed down the drain. A shower, like a tanning
session, may tend to dry out the skin. While you can't necessarily
wash your tan off, moist skin tans and retains a tan better
than dry skin. On the pH scale of 0-14, the skin registers
slightly acidic (about 5.6). Most soaps are well above the
neutral pH, or about 7 on the scale. Using a typical over-the-counter
soap with this higher alkaline pH can strip your skin of
its essential acidic oils. Those oils lock in your skin's
moisture. Shower gels are usually less harsh than regular
bar soap. Always apply a good quality moisturizer after
a shower to help preserve your tan. While showering after
a session tends to dry out the skin, there is evidence that
showering before a tanning session may actually enhance
tanning results. First, the heat from a shower opens your
pores, enabling the skin to breathe and take in oxygen vital
to the tanning process. Second, a shower will wash away
dirt and dead skin cells that may impede ultraviolet penetration
when you tan. Removing those dead cells also allows the
active ingredients in lotions to work their way into the
live skin cells more easily.
How Do I Protect A Tattoo?
It is important not to expose a fresh tattoo to sunlight
or indoor tanning equipment, while the tattoo is still healing,
since chemicals sensitive to UV exposure have been injected
into the skin. Cover the tattooed area completely or don't
tan until the skin has healed. After the skin has healed
the chemicals have lost their sensitivity to UV, but continue
to take moderate protective measures. Tattoos will continue
to lose their brilliancy with exposure to UV light, whether
it comes from indoors or from outdoors. Using a good lip
balm with SPF, such as Designer Skin’s Lip Smoothie
with SPF 15, will protect and preserve the brilliancy of
your tattoo. Plus it is small enough that you can precisely
apply it to smaller tattoos. It can also be used on nails,
to prevent yellowing.
