I have learned a lot about my tanning systems, how they work and how to instruct tanners to achieve their desired effect. Learning all the tanning lotions is another thing! Before going to the National Tanning Expo and learning so much, including breaking down the lotion ingredients, I relied on my Four Seasons rep, April Stout, reading from the manufacturer websites and using the products, in general.
