Tanning indoor vs Tanning under the sun, why not?



Different people, different world. As far as for Tanning, some people prefer indoor Tanning vs out door Tanning.

One of my favorite machines is: The V5 which is cost-efficient stand up tanning unit, featuring:

– 42 extra-long combi lamps

– Low-energy display illumination,

– Double doors to minimize the footprint.

Tanners will love the V5 because of the superior results that stand-up tanning booths provide. It can also be equipped with a changing room, expanding the footprint of the unit while allowing it to stand alone.  More units increase your tanning capacity, and allows for more happy customers.

Here are some tips to prepare before you go indoor tanning:

1. Determine your skin type

Most professionals at indoor tanning facilities can help you determine your skin type. Skin types range from Type 1, which is very light skin that burns immediately, to Type 5, which is dark skin that tans easily. Your skin type will help you determine how long and how frequently to tan indoors. Any decent salon will make you do it (they should also refuse to (UV) tan all fair skinned customers.) The form is used to determine your skin type (so they don’t accidentally fry your skin by putting you in a bed for too long). It should only take a minute or so.

2. Moisturize after an indoor tanning session

Skin that is moisturized will retain a tan longer than dry skin. Apply a body lotion immediately after each indoor tanning session, and moisturize after every shower or bath.  Choose a lotion based on your skin type. Select a deep-penetrating lotion for dry skin and a lightweight lotion for normal to oily skin. My preferred body lotion that I would recommend is Lavender lotion:  known for its purifying, relaxing and antiseptic properties. This high quality cost effective lotion has a fantastic lavender fragrance.

3. Avoid showering immediately after a tanning session. Wait at least 3 or 4 hours after tanning to allow the skin’s melanin to become fully stimulated.

4. Avoid cosmetics and perfumes while tanning.

Many cosmetics and perfumes contain ingredients that make you sensitive to light. These photosensitive ingredients could result in rashes, blotching, burning sensations or uneven tanning. Wash off all cosmetics and perfumes before tanning.

5. Prepare your skin for indoor tanning.

Exfoliate your skin daily for 1 week before your first indoor tanning session. Using a body pouf with gentle soap, scrub the skin in a circular motion. You also may use a commercial exfoliating kit, available at most beauty outlets and drug stores.   – Apply an indoor tanning lotion. Lotions designed specifically for indoor tanning will maximize your tanning efforts. Apply the lotion in circular strokes all over your body for even coverage. Do not use outdoor tanning lotions, which can damage indoor tanning beds.

6. Protect your eyes from UV rays

Get goggles. Again, any decent salon will make sure you have goggles. If they don’t insist, then they don’t care about your safety. Don’t worry; these funny-looking goggles won’t give you raccoon eyes. They just make sure you won’t go blind.

The U.S. FDA requires eye protection while utilizing an indoor tanning device. Most indoor tanning facilities provide eye protection free of charge, and all require that customers wear eye protection while tanning. Avoid looking at UV rays from the tanning equipment. Repeated exposure to indoor tanning UV rays could cause night blindness, retinal ulcers and blindness. In addition to protecting your eyes against the UV rays. I also recommend the eye massage which help increase oxygen and recover the elasticity of your cilia-muscles; improves blood circulation to the eyes; reduces the tiredness of your eyes; increases metabolism and keeps your eyesight healthy .Please get your eye massage at half price today.
