Tanning Tips

THE STAFF AT COCO BEACH TANNING SALON RECOMMENDS THE FOLLOWING:

Here are some helpful hints for achieving and maintaining your natural suntan.

8 Steps to a Better Tan

1. LOTS OF WATER
Our bodies hydrate from the inside and outside. DRY SKIN WILL NOT TAN!

EXTRA TIP: Drink 12 oz. of water immediately prior to tanning!

2. KNOW WHATS IN YOUR MOISTURIZER
Many popular moisturizers contain ingredients such as mineral oil, lanolin and SD alcohols. Not only are these agents drying to the skin, but may cause skin irritations. As skin specialists we recommend the products sold here for your precious skin. The pH is correct with only pure, safe ingredients. Use before and after showering and tanning. Using an anti-aging lotion will keep you younger looking even when tanning.

3. THROW OUT BAR AND LIQUID SOAP
Your skin has a delicate pH balance between alkaline and acid of 5.5. When you clean your skin with regular soaps you upset the delicate balance of your skin. Skin must work extra hard to get back to normal. Keeping your pH correct will give you a tanning edge. Ask us what we recommend using in your shower that will keep your skin looking and feeling younger.

4. CAFFEINE, THE BIG NO!
CAFFEINE - Very dehydrating. Anything that dehydrates your body is a tanning enemy. Try to cut down or drink extra WATER to make up for it.

5. ALCOHOL- A BIGGER NO!
ALCOHOL - Another big dehydrator. When you've partied the night before, wake up and start re-hydrating with WATER – and lots of it. Your body and your tan will love you for it.

6. BETA CAROTENE
Food rich in beta carotene are not only great cancer inhibitors but great tanning helpers, too. Make carrots & dark greens a part of your daily diet for nutrition and a fabulous tan. Vitamins and minerals will also help.

7. EXFOLIATE!
Regular exfoliation of your skin will give you a healthy look, which will both accept and keep a tan much longer. Our skin replaces itself approximately once every month. Not exfoliating the dead surface skin not only makes us look gray and unhealthy, but also blocks the UV light and keeps us from getting a great tan.

8. USE AN INDOOR TANNING LOTION
Depending on your skin type using the proper INDOOR tanning lotion can give you up to 75% better results than tanning with no lotion. Not only does it give your skin a final moisture drink just prior to tanning, but loads into your skin minerals and vitamins that your skin needs to be able to tan.

I know these 8 simple steps will help you keep your healthy looking glow!
