If you’re one of those people who are looking to get the perfect tan without the risks of sunburn, then indoor tanning beds are the ideal solution.
In order to get the perfect summer tan or to prepare their skin before their summer holiday, many people are flocking towards indoor tanning salons, rather than reaching for the fake tan.
Tanning salons are comfortable and relaxing and reduce the risk of sunburn. If you’re careful with indoor tanning, you can build up a great base tan that gives you the perfect glow.
Here are five indoor tanning tips you need to know for perfect sun-kissed skin.
Before you lie down and relax in your tanning bed, ask a trained professional to determine your skin type. As certain skin types tan quicker than others, how long your tanning session can be determined by this. It’s important for people with pale skin or skin that burns easily to be careful with how many minutes they go on for to avoid burning or skin damage.
What you decide to wear during your tanning session is entirely up to you. However, there are some protocols you need to follow before you start your session. It’s essential that you remove all jewellery as well as contact lenses or eyeglasses. Even something as small as a bracelet can be the difference between an even or uneven tan.
While seemingly harmless, cosmetics and perfumes contain ingredients that make you sensitive to light. That’s why it’s highly advisable to shower before your tanning session to remove all such substances. If left on, makeup and perfumes can cause burning sensations and potentially uneven tanning.
A pro-tip for an even tan is adjusting your body position to maximize exposure to all parts of your body. People who stay completely still throughout their tanning session often complain that they don’t have an even tan, or see patches of skin that has not been reached. This is not surprising, as various parts of the body don’t get the exposure needed for a tan.
You’ve finally got the perfect tan you’ve wanted for so long. Ideally, you’d want to maximize the length of time your skin stays tanned. Stay away from indoor heating and hot water to make sure your perfect tan stays for more than a month.
