Tanning oil should not be used when using a tanning bed. Aside from the damage you may do to the equipment, the oil will increase the damage done to your skin and doesn't provide SPF protection.

If you have on makeup it may be wise to wash it off before tanning to avoid uneven tanning. If you are using a lotion that is oil based- check for mineral oil, many lotions have it as an ingrediant wash it off before tanning because these lotions WILL ruin the bed if it is an acrylic bed like most. I know this is true because I work at a tanning salon.

Only if it is NOT oil based. if it is oil based it will scratch the tanning bed. otherwise It is a waste of money spent on tanning to wear spf in the tanning bed because it inhibits your exposure.

One can use any lotion they want in a tanning bed including Banana Boat Dark Tanning Oil. It is recommended for the safety and prevention of skin cancer to use a lotion designed for tanning beds that have a high concentration of SPF.

No because it puts cracks in the acrylic.

No dont use dry oil for tanning, outdoor tanning for some time is a better idea. I am an asian, my color used to be so white that my pals used to call me a snowy vampire with black hair. I apply a thin layer of olive oil after my bath. Olive oil makes the skin more colorful. Do not try tanning beds, or direct tanning in the sun. After prolonged exposure to direct sun heat, my skin gets burnt orange instead of the normal tan, moreover it damages the texure and increases the wrinkles. Use a UV protection cream of SPF 45 to avoid blemishes & wrinkles. Instead of dry oil, try using olive oil, now I look drastically olive.

Rub baby oil into your skin before tanning. It makes your skin darker and tans it quickly. But we careful, because it may cause you to burn more easily!

Tanning oil will get you the darkest fastest. There is little sun protection in tanning oil so you will get dark, fast.

Yes, it will help.Its almost the same as Tanning oil, or Tanning lotion.

If your coco butter is oil based it will ruin the bed! the beds are made of acrylic and I know for a fact oil based lotions will ruin the bed because I work at a tanning salon and just last week a man ruined the bed by using another lotion not approved by the salon. The best tanning lotions on the market are California Tan products. They range from $20-$130. Cypher is their best product out now. If you are going to use coco butter to to maintain your tan, only use it in outdoor tanning. *Topical Tan Salons Have good oils, lotions and so forth you can go and purchase them and receive 1 FREE in less than a week you can have the perfect tan you want. It's also safe to be pregnant as long as you are under 6 or 7 months in. There are beds stand ups and more. -Tyrza

Tanning oil You can buy this at your local chemist or super market

No, straight guys need tanning oil just as much as gay guys.

baby oil or melted butter (:

You can, but it is much safer to use a tanning product with a sunscreen. Using cooking oil offers no protection from potentially harmful UV rays.

Okay,I have a very red skin complexion and I am a teen. Is what i do to help it is: I put water and ice all over my legs when I tan with tanning oil. Then I put DRIED leaves on my legs. (Only dried.) It really works with some tanning oil. And if you really want it to work just put some black crayons on your legs. (: Hope this help.s (I work at a tanning salon but sometimes I use a tanning bed.)

Yes, you can use bronzing lotion for tanning beds in the actual sun. But it might be more helpful to go buy tanning oil or bronzing oil that you would normally use for just natural outdoor tanning.

No. Tanning oil only absorbs as far as the fat layer in the skin. It doesn't absorb into the blood stream.

Yes but keep tanning oil or tanning lotion away from the piercing.

the fastest way is to just simply lay out a lot!!! this can be dangerous, but if you really want your tan you got to work for it. make sure you always use sun block because with all the laying out you'll burn more quickly over time!!!! Swim: either at home or go to the beach with friends.

Tanning oils are not bad for your skin, but are used for the wrong reasons sometimes. Tannin oil will not protect your skin in the sun and this can cause skin cancer in the future.

No. If your using regular oil it should be changed along with the filter every 3000 miles. If you are using synthetic oil it should be changed with the filter every 5000 miles.

use baby lotion or tanning oil but that is kinda expensive
