When you tan at an indoor facility, your skin produces a tan the same way it does when you layout in the sun. There is one important difference, though. When you are out in the sun, you cannot control the amount of UV light you are exposed to, because it's affected by changes in the atmosphere. With tanning indoors you can regulate the amount of light because you're in a controlled environment.
Usually, you will begin to notice results after a few tanning sessions, but it may take a few weeks of regular tanning (at least three times a week) to get to the color you are looking for. If you are developing a base tan before going on a trip, you would want to start tanning about three or four weeks before you go.
If your hair lightens when you tan outdoors, the same is likely to happen in a tanning bed. By covering your hair with a towel while tanning, you can avoid the hair-lightening process.
Adjusting the protective eyewear occasionally during tanning sessions will help minimize this condition. The adjustment can be performed by gently sliding the eyewear to a new position. You should never lift the eyewear off your eyes to adjust its position.
Because tanning naturally draws moisture from your body, eyes can lose moisture too. Even with protective eyewear, eyes can dry out little. If somebody is going to tan with their contacts in, its recommended that they use moisturizing drops prior to or just after the tanning sessions to prevent any temporary discomfort.
Itching or rashes may be linked to several unrelated causes, so it's important to obtain a tanning history on each customer. Some people are naturally photosensitive when exposed to ultraviolet light. Others are susceptible to heat rashes, a cause unrelated to the UV exposure. Certain chemicals or ingredients found in cosmetics, shampoo, and even disinfection agents may cause itching as well. Rashes caused by products generally occur in localized areas on which the products were applied. It's advisable to tan with your skin as clean as possible and to only use products suggestion by your tanning professionals.
Tinea Versicolor, a skin condition that affects tanners, is caused by a microscopic fungus from the scalp. This fungus falls onto the arms, shoulders, and other body parts and other bleached areas on the skin, which can spread. It is treatable and must be protected from further UV light exposure until those bleached areas have began developing color again.
Many people choose to wear a swimsuit, however, due to the privacy of indoor tanning, others tan nude to avoid tan lines. Any skin that has never been exposed to UV light will be more sensitive. These parts must acquire a tan slowly. Cut down the exposure time for these areas to 1/3 or less of the total time recommended by your tanning professional. When you can't see any tan lines on your body it's then safe to expose that skin for the same length of time.
Yes, the use of indoor tanning lotions will provide the three essentials of effective tanning: hydration, nutrition, and oxygenation. Skin must be hydrated to reach and maintain desired tan. Dry, neglected skin reflects UV light and exfoliates much faster. The lotions sold at Turbo Tan are fundamental to the appearance of your tan. Vitamins replenish necessary nutrients to skin; therefor promoting cell regeneration and oxygenation. Oxygen fuels skin cell functions, along with accelerating the tanning process. Our trained Turbo Tan staff will recommend the product that is best for you.
