Denver Tanning Salons

Would you like to have a just-back-from Tahiti glow?

If you have 10-15 minutes you can be on the way to getting that bronzed body you cherish. Denver Tanning Salons have truly grownup and use one or possibly both of two types of tanning booths - horizontal or vertical.

In a horizontal booth, the tanner lies down to receive the rays, while a vertical booth provides light from all sides while the tanner stands.

Either way, good results will be achieved, especially if the staff of the tanning-salon is well trained and knowledgeable.


When you go to Denver tanning salons, the staff should ask you questions to determine your skin type and develop a schedule of treatments based on that schedule.

It will usually take several short minutes, ranging from 10 to 15-minute sessions to produce a great tan, but these sessions are generally inexpensive and can fit in with your busy schedule.

Sunless Tanning Tips

Sunless Tanning Lotion---Sunless tanning lotions are commonly confused with other products, like tanning pills or bronzers or even sunscreen. Sunless tanning lotions are a way to chemically induce a tan on your skin. Sunless tanning lotion products contain dihydroxyacetone -- DHA. When DHA is combined with amino acids naturally found in your body, it produces melanoidins. Melanoidins are brown in color though the effects are temporary; this color is only applied to the top most layer of the skin. The skin naturally replaces itself as skin cells fall off every day. To keep the color, you would have to re-apply the lotion as directed. The process of sunless tanning lotion should not be confused with true tanning under UV rays, which stimulates the melanin in the skin to produce color. This involves much deeper penetration of the skin and while the results are similar, you are not getting the other benefits of being exposed to UV rays, such as getting some vitamin D.

Self Tanning and Streaking---Self tanning lotions are very popular, but there is a problem often faced with it. Streaking occurs when lotion is not applied evenly to the skin. Reapplying may only make it worse. Always follow directions on the back of the self tanning lotion bottle to help prevent streaking. Apply the self tanning lotion by hand wearing appropriate gloves and using a circular motion. Also remember to apply enough of the product to each part of the body. The self tanning lotion should be applied as directed and it is different with each product. Many self tanning bottles contain specific steps to prevent streaking. Some bottles of self tanning lotion come in a color formula where you can actually see where you have applied enough lotion. This makes it easier to apply and may help prevent streaking.
