Tanning

When it comes to Mobile Tanning, there is not only one way to go. There are several options as to how we will approach the perfect tan for our skin. A tanning salon has to be easily accessible in order to do well. Customers want to be able to go tan before work, at lunch, and after work. They don't want to spend a great deal of time traveling to the location. If the building is being leased it is possible for you to move the equipment to a new location though.

UV tanning tip 4: Which kind of UV-rays? Find a tanning salon with tanning beds (and staff) that can meet your goals. Remember that UVA-rays from high-pressure lamps only oxidize the existing melanin in your skin and do not produce any Vitamin D or build up any additional melanin in order to prepare the skin for further tanning. UVB-rays from low-pressure lamps, on the other hand, make the body produce both Vitamin D and more melanin. The amount of UVB in low-pressure lamps can vary. Look for a tanning bed with at least 3% UVB (in relation to UVA) for best result in shortest time. The staff in the salon should be able to guide you.


Spray tans can be done at home but blotchy orange home jobs are best avoided. In a salon there'll be two different options: a booth or an airbrush tan. Spray booths are a solo experience while an airbrush involves a technician. The choice really is one of personal preference.

Unprotected sun exposure will cause long-term free radical damage, which must be neutralized by the use of topical antioxidants. Again, if the skin is not protected from the sun, these free radicals will cause cellular damage under the surface, which will appear in the form of sun damage and potential disease later on in life. Even more so, this type of sun damage will further worsen the condition of keratosis pilaris instead of making it better.

All tanning lotions will also have at least a few additional ingredients in their formulas for skin moisturization and protection, and the vast majority have many extra ingredients as well and that is what actually sets one lotion apart from the other. You will see things like hemp seed oil, anti-aging blends and skin firming compounds on the labels of most lotions. Some products are so advanced in their formulation that the price for a single bottle can reach over a hundred dollars. Whether or not it is worth it to spend that much on a bottle of lotion is debatable but one thing is for sure, if you go into a tanning bed and do not apply an indoor tanning lotion to your skin you risk being burnt, getting an uneven tan and accelerating possible skin damage.
