If you are new to the tanning world, you may have encountered some myths and misconceptions that left you with questions. As with any beauty or health topic, it’s crucial to separate fact from fiction to make informed decisions.

Here are a few common tanning myths debunked to give you the confidence to explore the exciting options of tanning beds and spray tanning!

Sunless Tanning Products Will Turn You Orange

This is a lingering myth from the early days of sunless tanning technology. Today’s sunless tanning products, especially those used in professional settings, offer a range of shades to give you a natural-looking tan without the feared “orange” effect.

Tanning Beds Are Unsafe

Although UV exposure should always be handled responsibly, modern tanning beds can provide a controlled environment to achieve a sun-kissed glow when used properly and in moderation. Remember to protect your skin and follow recommended tanning durations to achieve the best and safest results.

Indoor Tanning Does Not Require Any Prep or Aftercare

Similar to sun tanning, indoor tanning can produce better results when the skin is properly prepared and cared for. A gentle exfoliation before tanning can help achieve a more even tan while using a moisturizer after tanning can enhance its radiance and make it last longer.

Spray Tanning Is Only for Women

Spray tanning is for everyone! Regardless of gender, anyone who wants a fast, safe, and realistic-looking tan can choose spray tanning. Its popularity is increasing among all genders because of its ease and outstanding outcomes.

Tanning Beds Are Uncomfortable and Claustrophobic

Many people believe that tanning beds are cramped, unpleasant and make them feel claustrophobic. However, this is not the case with modern tanning beds. Nowadays, tanning beds are built to offer comfort and relaxation, with plenty of space. Some even have cooling fans, music choices, and contoured acrylic to make the experience more enjoyable and personalized.

Sunless Tanning Products Are Bad for Your Skin

Modern tanning products, particularly those found in professional salons, are now enriched with skin-nourishing components. These include antioxidants, botanical extracts, and hydrating oils that give you a stunning tan while keeping your skin healthy and moisturized.

Now that these myths have been debunked, it’s clear that sunless tanning can be a safe way to achieve your desired tan when used responsibly.
