Tingle Lotion

Have you been tanning for a while but feel like you’ve hit a wall? Like you’re not getting any tanner? Well that’s what tingle lotions are for! With a tingle, you can push past the tanning plateau so that you can be darker than you ever thought you could get. A word of caution; tingle lotions are not for everyone so make sure that you do not have sensitive skin and that you try it out before you actually buy a big bottle.
What does a tingle lotion actually do? The lotion is activated by the UV rays and stimulates increased blood flow through the body, bringing up more melanin to the surface, therefore creating a deeper, darker, longer lasting tan. The melanin that is being produced is from deeper layers of the skin and is able to give a darker tan than the melanin on the surface. Some tingle lotions also have bronzers in them for an extra boost of color and melanin stimulation.
Tingles range from mild to hot, but they won’t necessarily say on the bottle so you will need to talk to someone who has tried the ones you’re interested in or try them all yourself to find out. At Island Tan, I have tried all of the tingle lotions we carry so I can tell you which ones are which. Everyday Shorts’ Rasta Tingle has bronzers and is a medium tingle. Also by Everyday Shorts, Stoked and Lava Lamp have bronzers as well, but Lava Lamp is very mild. Stoked is more in the medium range. We also carry Devoted Creation’s Trinity which is HOT, but definitely a favorite for advanced tanners! If you’ve never tried a tingle, try one! At least then you’ll know if you like it or if you don’t.
