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.
