Bamboo: The Latest Trend In Skincare?

If you have been to a beauty shop lately you may have noticed several products that contain Bamboo or Bamboo extracts. Alterna has a very popular Bamboo hair care line while other companies are releasing products containing bamboo.

One exiting new release is Body Drench's Green Tea + Bamboo nourishing body lotion which makes a fine addition to the already popular product line. Long known for quality moisturizers, it's no surprise that the new body lotion is fabulous. You can lose yourself in the aroma of green tea and bamboo while adding all day moisturization to your skin.

Why Bamboo? Bamboo contains high concentrations of natural silica which gives the skin a restorative smoothing. Silica is a major constituent of collagen, helping the skin keep its elasticity. Bamboo is also considered to have substantial anti-aging properties and is thus very popular in eastern cultures.

Skin care is very important to maintain a youthful appearance. A great moisturizer is a daily must. Bamboo has the potential to step up your daily regimen to a whole new level.

Quick Tan Sunless Spray... Everyone's Favorite?

Since it's release a few years ago Body Drench Quick Tan quickly gained "most popular" status among the beauty and tanning shops around the world. Body Drench has long been known for amazing moisturizers but Quick Tan Sunless Spray has taken the center stage.

Body Drench gives you a very nice, evenly distributed spray tan that you can apply yourself. The high quality spray nozzle does not clog like others and the lightweight can is easy to use and handle.

Tips: Just like with any sunless products the best results come when you exfoliate prior to use. This isn't required but it will help your tan look more even and last longer. You also want to moisturize your elbows, knuckles and any other area that can collect sunless. Hold that can about 10 inches away from your skin and spray in even strokes. You can rub in or gently wipe off any excess and then wash your hands quickly.

Body Drench Quick Tan has been a best seller at Lotion Source for many years. Please comment below with your Quick Tan tips, stories or opinions.

eXtremely Confusing?

Tingle Tanning

Ever since the birth of the "tingle" tanning lotion in the early nineties, logically thinking folks have tried to make sense of the labeling and in particular the levels placed there by the lotion companies. There is no "Tingle Regulation" that would set a industry wide rating system so it is left up to each company to come up with their own.

Tingle products are primarily created using a chemical called nicotinate, similar to niacin which causes an increase in circulation to the area in which it is applied. This causes a mild to intense warming and reddening of the skin which typically fades within 20-40 minutes after application. With continued usage the skin becomes less sensitive to the tingle factor and it becomes necessary to step up to a higher tingle factor.

The original tingle products called "Swedish Beauty" were manufactured in Arizona by John Abate International.  Later the Swedish Beauty brand changed hands and it is now owned by another large lotion company.

Not long after being released on the U.S. market, John Abate's lotion line skyrocketed to the top as people learned of these tingle tanning products. Slowly, all of the other lotion companies realized they needed to offer tingle products for their customers as well.

Originally John Abate International offered a single product simply called "Accelerator" and a product with less tingle for those with "Sensitive" skin. There was no designation of tingle strength as of yet. This was later replaced with their Tingle Level 1 and 2 and then followed by stronger products with a 3 and finally Tingle Factor 4 products.

To most people this is a pretty simple system. Tingle factors 1-4 with four being the strongest available and only for advanced tingle users. This is where the simplicity ends and the confusion begins.

Next Generation

Seeing the benefits of skin stimulation in tanning, Skincare By Hoss released Outlaw Tanning Lotion with what they nicknamed the "Stolen Tingle." This product has sold thousands of bottles over the years and is still produced today in it's various forms.

Nearly every other lotion company followed with their own versions of tingle tanning lotions. Today some of the other popular brands include Most, Ultimate and Brown Sugar who each have very popular tingle tanning lotions.

Originally Skincare By Hoss expanded their Outlaw line by releasing Outlaw 5x, meaning 5 times the tingle factor, followed by 6x the year after that. John Abate came back with Tingle Factor 2+ and then 3, 3+ and finally 4. Obviously these numbers mean different things at the different companies. John Abate's tingle factor 4 is similar in strength to Hoss Sauce's 6x, or 6 times the tingle.

The other companies also came out with many products that had their own rating system. Consumers were bombarded with everything from 200x up to 9000. One company's 9000 may not be as strong as another's 200x which may or may not be as strong as someone else's 6x.

Companies like Skincare By Hoss added expensive skin care ingredients to their newer hotter products like best seller Outlaw 6xxx and Outlaw Red Hot Maxx and basically stepped out of the high number race. They focused instead on the customers needs rather than the number system.

In the end, the only way to know how hot a product might be, is to test it on your own skin. We recommend testing on a small patch on your arm and waiting 5 minutes or so. This will keep you from being surprised by an intense product after applying to your whole body.

If you haven't used a tingle tanning lotion before than start with a lesser strength and work up to the hotter ones. You and your tan will thank you for it.

Generation 2.0

Outlaw has long been the standard bearer for tingle tanning. Many consider the Outlaw Red Hot Maxxx to be the strongest or hottest tingle every created. In 2011 Skincare By Hoss released the next generation of Outlaw Tingle with a new product called "SONS OF OUTLAW 99xxx WTF" or Wild Tingle Formula. This new fiery hot lotion promises to take tingle lovers to a whole new dimension of hot tanning bliss. This one is HOT, don't say we didn't warn you!

How To Develop A Great Tan

How is your Tan developing? Dark? Dark as you want to be? You know with the weather improving and the fourth of July just around the corner the opportunity to go outside in the sun, sun bathing, swimming well you know what I mean can invite sunburn and unwanted looks at those white legs.

It would be a pretty good idea to try to get a nice base tan prior to going to the beach, river or pool. Despite what was considered normal for tanning (go outside get burnt, peel and then turn Tan) it is not good for you, it is not comfortable and it is actually a pain. So my best suggestion would be to come to the salon and enjoy tanning at least every other day or so while you are developing a nice base tan. Every other day will work for some while others need maybe every third day. You won't gain by trying to tan when you are pink so before you go tanning make sure you are not a little pink from a previous session. Use a great tanning maximizer that will take care of your skin and accelerate the body's natural tanning process. Doing this process correctly will actually help you develop a tan faster. Keep in mind if you are already a person with a good base tan what I just wrote really does not apply. I am trying to help those of you who are not tan and are likely to go outside and over do the exposure to UV light thing that so often happens and really shouldn't.

The rest of you who actually have good base tans and even more, my advise to you is to keep doing what you are doing, keep tanning on a regular basis and enjoy tanning outside. Even with a good base tan or a little more you still run a risk of getting burnt due to overexposure while outside. Use a good SPF and re-apply frequently depending on how long you are planning on staying out in the Sun. Another good thing I might suggest you purchase and keep with you is a sunburn cooler gel. Body Drench's Skin Therapy Sunburn Cooler Gel will help you in the case of you getting a bit sun burnt. It is a marvelous cooling product.

Something else I should bring up is if you use SPF you really need to use an excellent top-of-the-line moisturizer. Most SPF products are created for one thing and that is to keep you from burning. They are typically great skin care products. You need to rehydrate your skin after being out in the Sun for any length of time. Remember it would be in your best interests to use a very good lotion all the time, you will soon be amazed at how nice and soft your skin feels.

In Review:
1) Get A Base Tan Before Heading Outside In The Summer
2) Tan At The Salon Every Other Day Or Every 3rd Day
3) Use The Best Tanning Maximizer You Can
4) Use The Best Moisturizer For Your Skin
5) Use SPF Protection & Avoid Sunburns
6) Use A Sunburn Cooler Gel If You Burn
