Life is better with a Tan
Using a tanning bed is similar to tanning outdoors. A UV lamp generates ultraviolet light and shines it on your skin, prompting your skin to develop a protective tan. The lamps in a sunbed have a different ratio of UVA and UVB to the sun, allowing us to control your exposure, prevent injury and achieve your desired look. Once you’ve chosen your time, just step in and let the lights work their magic.
The tanning process differs from person to person, but you can tan on a regular basis without any risks to your health. We recommend leaving between 24-48 hours between tanning sessions to allow your skin to adapt and prevent injury. Definitely don’t use any tanning equipment more than once on the same day! It’s also recommended to keep the number of tanning sessions under 60 per year.
How long your tanning sessions take depends on your skin type and desired outcome. But if it’s your first time in a tanning bed, we recommend having 1–3-minute sessions around 3 times a week, based on your skin type. This gradually gets your skin used to tanning, removes any chance of burns ad helps build up your tan gradually. If you already have a base tan, or have a naturally darker skin type, then you can move up to 6-minute sessions two or three times a week. If you’re not sure, speak to one of our team and we can recommend a tan time based on your skin type.
While you don’t have to use a tanning cream or accelerator in our tanning beds, it’s often better if you do. These creams and lotions are specifically designed for sunbed use, and are packed with ingredients that keep your skin moisturised and improve your tanning results. Since healthy and moisturised skin tans easier and the tan lasts longer, it’s the best way to maximise your tanning time. Just don’t use outdoor tanning products in a tanning bed!
