Indoor Tanning FAQ

Oct 19, 2007
It's important that you get all of your questions answered and concerns addressed before you begin indoor tanning. This is because tanning is a terrific experience and you want to maximize the pleasure and benefits of it by easing any concerns that you may have. You'll want to speak with a professional at your chosen tanning salon for full details, but here are the answers to a number of frequently asked questions about indoor tanning:

Is it safe?

Yes, if you do it properly. This is one of the most commonly asked questions about tanning because people are aware that there are risks associated with exposure to UV rays. If you follow proper procedures and use the right tanning lotions and other products, indoor tanning should be at least as safe as outdoor tanning. Since it is in a controlled environment, tanning indoors may even be safer.

What are the benefits?

In comparison with outdoor tanning, indoor tanning takes less time and gives you a more even tan. Some people also say that it is safer, especially if you're using the right tanning lotions and other products.

Do I need to use tanning lotion?

Yes. Although it won't be required by your tanning salon, you will want to use indoor tanning lotion. It moisturizes your skin, protects it from the rays and helps to give you an even tan more quickly. Make sure to choose the right tanning lotion for your desired results.

How often should I go to the tanning salon?

This depends on how quickly you want to get a tan. You need to wait 1-2 days between sessions so you'll go no more than 4 times per week. Many people go 3-4 times per week until they get the desired look and then go 1-2 times per week to maintain that tan.

How long does a typical session last?

Most people tan for 20-30 minutes during each session. However, this depends on a number of factors so you should work with someone at the salon to determine the right length of time for you.

What should I wear?

Since you are going to be in the tanning bed alone, you can wear as much or as little clothing as you'd like to get the tan that you want. Many people wear nothing at all to get a full body tan. Others wear their swimsuits since they just want the tan where those on the beach will see them. You will wear eye goggles during indoor tanning to protect your eyes from the rays.

Will I be comfortable at a the salon?

Most people find that they are a little bit nervous when they first go to a tanning salon because they don't know what to expect. This anxiety quickly goes away when they see how comfortable indoor tanning is. Most people who tan relate the experience to going to a spa. You will massage yourself with tanning lotion which will relax you and then you'll get half an hour of peace and quiet to yourself in the tanning bed. Staff will be on hand to greet you and make the experience more pleasant. Most people find that they are not only comfortable with indoor tanning but that it's an indulgent experience which they look forward to all week long.
