Indoor Tanning Safety Tips

Tanning beds are a quick and convenient option for individuals who want a natural-looking tan without having to spend hours in the sun. Instead of wasting an entire afternoon laying outside, you can just drive over to your local tanning salon and be in and out with a brilliant bronze in half an hour. How great is that?!

If you haven’t used a tanning bed before, you may have some concerns about safety. Of course, you have to be careful in any type of UV light, but as long as you take these precautions below, you can safely use an indoor tanning bed to give your skin a perfect glow!

Keep indoor tanning sessions short

Tanning beds emit a higher amount of UV rays than sunlight. There are two important takeaways from this fact: it will take less time to achieve your ideal color in a tanning bed, but your skin can also be damaged more quickly. Be sure to follow the recommended exposure time for your skin type and goal color, something your tanning specialist can help you determine.

Always wear eye protection

Tanning beds can quickly cause damage to your eyes if they’re left uncovered for any length of time. For this reason, eye protection for indoor tanning is required by law. Never enter a tanning session without wearing a pair of fitted eye goggles or other fitted eye protection. Your eyewear should be in place before you even walk into the tanning bed.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

Remember; hydrated skin is healthy skin. Since tanning dries out your skin, whether from the sun or a tanning bed, moisturizing needs to be a staple of your regimen. Use an oil-free moisturizer before your tanning session, a moisturizing indoor tanning lotion during, and a moisturizing tanning extender afterwards to help lock in hydration and color.

How Las Vegas Bronzed is Keeping You Safe from COVID-19

Tanning Salons in Las Vegas, NV

The coronavirus pandemic has changed many plans, upended comfortable routines, and made the future moving forward unclear. During this time of high stress and uncertainty, self-care has become more important than ever.

While business closures have made it difficult to practice self-care as you normally would—perhaps with a fresh hair color, afternoon mani-pedi, or facial and massage at your favorite spa—there is renewed hope and excitement as the state of Nevada begins the reopening process. Las Vegas Bronzed is happy to be included in those businesses opening their doors in the next few weeks!

We have always taken comprehensive measures to ensure the safety and cleanliness of our salon. However, we want to assure our valued customers that we will be taking extra precautions as we reopen, in accordance with the CDC, OSHA, and Nevada state guidelines, to protect you and our employees from exposure to COVID-19.

Every customer will have their temperature taken using touchless infrared thermometers.

Those who do have a fever will be asked to leave. Your temperature will be logged to your salon profile with every visit, along with your answers to the following questions:

  • Have you been coughing?
  • Have you felt sick?
  • Have you been around anybody with COVID-19 or another illness?

We ask that any client who answers yes to the questions above, or does not feel well in general, to please stay home for the safety of our staff and other customers.

We will also be taking extra sanitation measures and following social distancing guidelines.

Our hours will be adjusted temporarily to allow the Las Vegas Bronzed staff extra time to thoroughly sanitize the salon each day. All salon beds and surfaces will also be decontaminated using hospital-grade sanitizer after each customer. Customers will be asked to sanitize upon entry.

In order to minimize exposure to the virus, only the customer or tanner will be permitted to enter the salon. If your bed is in use, you will be asked to wait outside and one of our team members will come get you when it’s ready. Please call ahead to make an appointment.

As of Friday, May 29th, 2020, we will be open with the following temporary hours:

  • Monday-Friday: 10am-6pm
  • Saturday-Sunday: 10am-4pm

As we begin the process of reopening our salon, you can be assured that we are doing everything possibly to keep you safe, healthy, and beautifully bronzed once again.

If you have any questions or concerns about the extra precautions we’re taking to keep our facilities clean and sanitized, please give us a call at 702-453-8266 today.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Las Vegas Bronzed and offering our elite tanning services again soon!
