The circulation of the skin is increased and output is a DARK tan. Tingle products are not recommended to inexperienced tanners. Like the maximizers, tingle lotions will help you more past your tanning plateau. We offer Rasta tingles as well as an intense tingle called Trinity 3!

Lotions Just for the Face

Just as there are tanning lotions for the body, there are ones made specifically for your face! Most facial accelerators or bronzers are specially formulated for the delicate facial area. These facial lotions are always hypoallergenic and fragrance free so you don’t have to worry about it causing any allergic reaction, or clogging your pores.  Facial tanning lotions provide the same agents in lotions for the body that help you develop a deep, gorgeous tan, only they are made specifically for the face.  Many are even packed with antioxidants to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as added vitamins and nutrients to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Some facial tanning lotions also serve multiple purposes. There are awesome ones that not only help with tanning your face, but they are also specially formulated to help clear up acne. Dual use products are always a great buy! Inquire within one of our salons today for more info about facial tanners!
