BodyBing Tanning currently offers FIVE levels of sunbeds for UV tanning purposes and TWO options for sunless tanning. Each one of our sunbeds have a different variation of UVB/UVA output which can either create that “instant pop” or give a delayed browning color after 12 to 24 hours. When you walk in to BodyBing Tanning according to your skin type or sunbed preference we will make you get the best out of your experience to achieve a certain color for you. Remember, everyone’s skin is different so keep in mind that if you have a hard time tanning or burn easily it may take a lot more visits than your friend who looks like an exotic island model. Face it, someone has to tell you and we are giving it to you straight.
If you are just looking to achieve a base tan for vacation or elevate your current color we offer a variety of tanning lotions and once again based on your skin type or level of color we will find something right for you. The “tanning process” while in a sunbed usually begins around the 5 or 6 minute mark without tanning lotion and you want to make sure your skin is hydrated as well which is probably the most important reason why you use lotion so the tanning process can begin as soon as 60 seconds in. Dry skin reflects UV light, so if you are not using an indoor tanning lotion (we carry an awesome variety), you can be wasting up to 50% of your tanning session. We want to be able to get the most out of your tanning experience with us at BodyBing Tanning!
Cliffnotes version of lotions:
When you hear “maximizer” or “accelerator” dark tanning lotion these typically do not have bronzer in them and help aid in hydrating the skin to create a great looking base tan.
When you hear “bronzer”, this is lotion that can help with breaking that tan plateau and go beyond a base tan. (A good tip: Keep bronzer on for about 4 hours after your session before you shower).
When you hear “tingle”, it basically feels just like it sounds. It circulates blood flow in your skin making you feel tingly or getting hot to achieve a different type of color.
On to the Sunless:
We offer a custom airbrush sunless tan performed by an experienced tech and you can make an appointment with us at 586-884-6020.
Or if you can’t make an appointment you can walk in and get a sunless tan in our new Pura Sunless machine. It is literally the closest thing to an airbrush that you can get.
Both of these services can be read about further here.
