not overdo things. Tan sensibly. This is the most
important rule, which means that you should sunbathe
no more than once a day.
OVER DO IT
As a rule of thumb you need to sunbathe up to a
maximum of 10 times over a period of two to three
weeks to get a tan. After this, the tan will be
retained if you use a tanning bed once or twice a
TYPE IS VERY IMPORTANT
Depending on skin type, people react differently to
sunlight. When tanning in natural sunlight and on
tanning beds, it is important to know your own
particular skin type. Skin types around the world
have been classified into six different groups.
Skin type I: pale
white skin, blue or green eyes, red hair, many
freckles, always burns and never tans.
Skin type II: beige
skin, blue or grey eyes, blonde or light brown hair,
some freckles, strong sunburn tendency, but
Skin type III: light
brown skin, brown eyes and hair, sometimes burns but
Skin type IV: light
brown or olive skin, dark brown eyes and hair,
sometimes burns and tans readily.
Skin type V: brown
skin, dark brown hair and eyes, rarely burns and
Skin type VI: black
skin, black brown eyes and hair, rarely sunburns.
PROTECTIVE EYE WEAR
Keep your eyes close while tanning and always wear
protective eyewear that block out UV light. Contact
lenses should be removed prior to tanning.
Before tanning, carefully remove all cosmetics from
your skin and take off all jewelry. Do not use any
sunscreen lotions during tanning, as these can
detract from the tanning effect.
If you are taking medication or suffer from a skin
disorder, please be aware that certain medicines may
be photosensitive. That is, they may cause an
adverse reaction when the body is exposed to UV
light. A list, which identifies many photosensitive
medications, foods, and ingredients, should be on
display in your salon. Always consult your physician
if you have any questions or concerns.
SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
Your skin needs care before and after tanning. Use
skin care products to keep an attractive tan looking
good for a longer period of time. Solar cosmetics
are particularly suitable for this type of skin care
because they contain a special combination of
ingredients that are tailored to the specific needs
of tanned skin. Ask your salon for details.
Proper salon hygiene is of paramount importance to
your health. The acrylic area must be cleaned with a
special disinfectant before each tanning session.
Our beds are ALWAYS cleaned after every use.
