Tanning Tips

Eye Protection
Ultraviolet tanning rays (UVA and UVB) are harmful to your eyes. Eyelids are too thin to provide enough protection against injury. Eye goggles will be provided and must be worn. You may also purchase your own goggles.

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 hit a tanning plateau and you don't seem to get darker. That's why we offer equipment with different outputs and features. Ask our trained staff which system is the best for you according to your tanning routine and needs.

Moisturizing
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 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.

Lip Protection
Lips cannot produce melanin, and are not capable of tanning. Protect your lips with a lip balm that contains sun block.

Tattoos
UV‐light may cause color to fade. Cover tattoos with an SPF sunscreen or sun block.

What to Wear
You may wear your swimsuit, undergarments, or nothing at all while tanning. If you choose to wear nothing, use extra caution on areas that have never been exposed to sunlight. For the first few visits, cover these areas for half the duration of the session, to gradually ease into a tan.

Tanning Accelerators/Maximizers
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. Many advanced products also contain skin care components that help reverse the damaging effects of UV light and improve the condition of your skin.
