Tanning Tips
If you have any questions which were not covered or still want additional information, please feel free to ask our knowledgeable staff.
Exfoliate Your Skin a few times a week. Just a few times can be enough to eliminate those dead cells, which in turn eliminates patches of dry skin that may cause uneven tanning. Moisturize Your Skin.  Softer, moisture skin retains a tan much longer than dry, scaly skin. Your skin is constantly exposed to the elements: wind, sun, water, heat, cold - all drying your skin, causing your skin to flake off, and there goes your tan as well. Moisturizing is the key to a long-lasting tan. Also, dry skin tends to reflect UV-light, thus decreasing your tanning potential. Remember: Healthy and moist skin tans faster and darker. Remember not to use a moisturizer that contains an SPF. Use Tanning Accelerators With Bronzers. Bronzers provide an extra boost to achieve a darker color. Don't be afraid to apply tanning accelerators more heavily to hard-to-tan areas so the spots that need it the most get the coverage. Your body makes use of many ingredients in addition to UV-light to produce a tan. Indoor tanning accelerators are designed to provide you with a balanced amount of these essential ingredients to achieve a better tan. You will tan faster and darker if you use an indoor tanning lotion. You will damage your skin if you do not. Tanning without a tanning lotion depletes the skin of moisture. Your tan will last longer and look healthier if you use an indoor tanning lotion. Many advanced products also contain skin care components that help reverse the damaging effects of UV-light and improve the condition of your skin. Use Self-Tanning Products to even out pigmentation in all difficult-to-tan areas. Self-tanners will also conceal tan lines, scars and pressure point spots. Use a 50/50 mixture of moisturizer and self-tanner to avoid streaking. Also consider trying bronzing products for the facial area. Male clients don't want make up, but there is another option, try a tinted moisturizer to help even out your skin tone. Vary Your Equipment Use. By switching between beds and stand ups, and low pressure and high pressure units you can often see a subtle to extreme difference in skin tone. Don't stay with one piece of equipment if you are not achieving the color you want. • Low Pressure Equipment - Our regular beds, stand ups & 12 minute beds • High Pressure Equipment - Our 20 minute high pressure tanning bed by Dr. Műeller Eye Protection. Ultraviolet tanning rays (UVA and UVB) are harmful to your eyes. Eyelids are too thin to provide adequate protection against injury. FDA approved goggles are provided and must be worn. Goggles are also available for purchase. Frequency. Allow a minimum of 24 hours between tanning sessions. Tanning professionals recommend waiting 48 to 72 hours, the span of time necessary for your skin to recover from UV exposure, and to create melanin and a tan. Tanning Plateau. After tanning for a while, you may reach a point where you don't seem to be getting any darker. That's why we offer equipment with different outputs and features. Ask our trained staff which system is best for you according to your tanning routine and needs. Clean skin. Your skin should be clean before tanning, free of dirt, makeup, grease, etc. You tan much better when you're clean. Since these products are comprised of many essential vitamins, extreme temperatures can cause them to lose their effectiveness. For best results, keep your tanning accelerators at room temperature. Outdoor Lotions and Oils. Outdoor tanning products are made to address the specific needs of tanning outdoors (uncontrolled conditions). These products can cause a film on tanning bed acrylics and actually inhibit your body from tanning. Outdoor tanning products are NOT allowed in our salon. Lip Protection. Lips cannot produce melanin, and are not capable of tanning. Protect your lips with lip balm containing sun block. Nude Tanning. Be cautious when tanning in the nude, especially if these areas have not been previously exposed to the sun or indoor tanning. For the first few visits, cover these areas for at least ½ of the length of your session allowing these "sensitive areas" to tan gradually. Medications. Some medications can cause a reaction to UV light. Check with your physician or pharmacist if you have any questions about your particular prescription. A list of Photosensitive Drugs is available at our salon. Be sure and let us know if you'd like to review it. Skin Type is Very Important. Depending on skin type, people react differently to sunlight. When tanning in natural sunlight and on tanning beds, it is important to know your own particular skin type. Skin types around the world have been classified into six different groups. Skin type I: pale white skin, blue or green eyes, red hair, many freckles, always burns and never tans. Skin type II: beige skin, blue or grey eyes, blonde or light brown hair, some freckles, strong sunburn tendency, but sometimes tans. Skin type III: light brown skin, brown eyes and hair, sometimes burns but always tans. Skin type IV: light brown or olive skin, dark brown eyes and hair, sometimes burns and tans readily. Skin type V: brown skin, dark brown hair and eyes, rarely burns and tans easily. Skin type VI: black skin, black brown eyes and hair, rarely sunburns
