Top quality tanning lotions can be expensive, so it’s crucial to maintain proper care and storage of your lotions. Our experts provide three fundamental tips for using tanning lotion to get the perfect sun-kissed tan.
Do: Store Your Products at Room Temperature
It’s imperative to keep your tanning lotion indoors. Keep it out of direct sunlight and store it at 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit or 18 to 21 degrees Celsius. Storing your products in cool and dim places could potentially extend their lifetime effectiveness.
Don’t: Leave Your Lotion in the Car
You should never leave any of your products inside a vehicle, but it’s most critical when it comes to your tanning lotion. The convenience of carrying it around with you does not justify the rapid deterioration of your product, which is caused by a chemical reaction from the heat of your car.
Do: Be Mindful of Expiration Dates
Some tanning lotions do, indeed, have expiration dates. You will be able to find this date printed on the side of the bottle. If your bottle does not have an expiration date printed on it, that does not mean you are in the clear. These lotions tend to be at their peak effectiveness in their first 3 years of life.
Your tanning lotion is important and potentially expensive. Maintaining proper care and storage of your products will result in the preservation of your product’s usefulness. Contact us for more information regarding the care and storage of your sunless tanning products.
