As your body’s largest organ, your skin requires specific care. Healthy, moist skin will tan quicker, get darker and keep its tanned appearance longer because it does not exfoliate as quickly when properly moisturized.
Indoor tanning lotions can help stimulate the production of melanin, the skin’s dark biological pigment. Dark-skinned people have more melanin than light-skinned people. Melanin also acts as a sunscreen and protects the skin from ultraviolet light and skin damage from the sun. Your skin cells increase their production of melanin in response to sun exposure. Freckles, which occur in people of all races, are small, concentrated areas of increased melanin production.

The federal government regulates indoor tanning in the United States and Canada . Exposure times for every tanning session are set by a schedule that is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada. Designed to minimize the risk of sunburn, these schedules take into account your skin type, how long you’ve been tanning and the intensity of the equipment. Exposure times are increased gradually to minimize the possibility of burning.
