No, you can't. Outdoor tanning lotions & products containing mineral oil or any form of mineral oil are banned from use in our salon. Indoor tanning lotions are formulated specifically for use with indoor tanning equipment. Indoor tanning lotion applied just before a session will prepare the skin to tan more effectively. Keeping your skin moist is the key to a long lasting, beautiful tan. Please do not use outdoor tanning products in our studio. They can damage the acrylics.
DO I HAVE TO BUY LOTION FROM YOUR TANNING FACILITY?
We highly recommend you purchase your indoor lotion from a reputable tanning facility. Tanning salons carry high quality products in a large price range. Consumers may not be getting the indoor tanning products that they think they are when they purchase them Online, through unauthorized outlets like discount websites, local flea markets or big "box" stores.
REMEMBER: Professional tanning products should be recommended by a qualified indoor tanning specialist to insure proper use. Indoor tanning products have unique ingredients that should be used only as directed to ensure the finest tan possible.
A 20 MINUTE SESSION IS EQUAL TO HOW MUCH TIME OUTDOORS?
Indoor tanning equipment and lamps differ in spectral output and energy emitted. The sun's strength depends on many factors: time of year, cloud cover, reflection and pollution. With that being said, it is very difficult to make a simple comparison between indoor and outdoor tanning.
