Tanning Accelerator Lotion Benefits & Brands

Tanning accelerator lotion is a product that allows you to get a glowing golden brown tan without having to spend hours on the beach trying not to burn or spending boundless amounts of money on tanning beds at salons. This way, you know you are not wasting your time and not getting the results you were expecting. These types of tanning accelerator lotions are a great way to help you build your tan, even when you are not in the sun. You can spend less time baking in the sun and more time doing the things you love without harming your skin.

How does it work?

Tanning accelerators usually contain amino acids called Psoralen and Tyrosine which stimulate pigment cells to trigger additional melanin production, the component in skin cells that is responsible for skin tone and color. The quicker you can get melanin production started the faster you tan.


There are various types of tan accelerators that include outdoor and indoor lotions depending on the type of tanning your wanting to do. A quick stint in the tanning booth or a fun filled day at the beach. Both have the same objective and purpose but indoor tanning lotions have different chemicals in them to help maximize and speed up melanin production (the chemical behind tanned skin). Dark tanning intensifierswithout the use of cosmetic bronzers or DHA help to make these indoor lotions very popular among tanners. Some contain silicone to help moisturize the skin and keep it from drying out. Moisture is key to keeping the skin healthy which is vital to a successful long lasting tan.


By using tanning accelerators, you can assure yourself that you will receive quicker tan than without anything on however the amount of time in the sun or in a tanning bed is key. Everyone has a skin level and some are more susceptible to burn or damage than others.  Accelerator tanning lotions these days have many moisturizing properties to help keep the skin hydrated and elastic which is key to a good safe tan. Many even have free radical fighting agents and collagen stimulating properties which are excellent for the health of your skin.
