Bronzers add some instant temporary color while DHA adds instant color that lasts for a few days. Indoor tanning lotions are usually used with tanning beds or tanning booths that use UV rays as a source of accelerating the tanning process.

Therefore it is recommended you use sunscreen along with tanning lotion to prevent sunburns.
