Make sure to exfoliate your skin in the shower or bath before going to the tanning bed, and apply plenty of lotion once you're done. Using indoor tanning lotion is also a good idea as it can enhance your results. You can find a variety of tanning lotions in stock and available for purchase at the front desk.
It's crucial to take precautions if you have a tendency to burn easily. Start with low-pressure lamps during your initial tanning sessions. Conversely, individuals with naturally darker skin can typically opt for higher-pressure lamps and longer sessions, but it's advisable to begin with a shorter session if you're a novice. If you're uncertain about the optimal approach for your skin type, don't hesitate to ask a staff member for guidance.
While South Beach Tanning Center provides eye protection options, it's a good idea to bring your own. Proper eye protection is crucial in preventing permanent eye damage, and regular sunglasses won't suffice.
To extend the longevity of your tan and avoid frequent tanning, which can cause harmful UV damage to your skin, consider using a self-tanner or a tan extender.
Tanning, when done in moderation, can offer several benefits. One of the most notable benefits is the increased production of vitamin D, which helps maintain healthy bones and teeth. Additionally, tanning can boost energy levels and improve mood, particularly for those who experience seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Tanning can also provide relief for individuals suffering from skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Sun exposure can help reduce inflammation, which can alleviate symptoms associated with these conditions. Finally, tanning can improve overall skin appearance by giving the skin a healthy glow and reducing the appearance of blemishes and imperfections.
Before Your Appointment: Do not shave less than four hours before your appointment. You should, however, shower and exfoliate your skin. Instead of bar soap, use a body scrub to remove excess dead skin cells and help the tanning product adhere evenly. Apply petroleum jelly to nail beds and cuticles to keep any excess color from building up in those areas. For a more natural-looking tan, you can also moisturize the palms of your hands to keep them from absorbing too much product!
During Your Appointment: Wear undergarments to protect sensitive areas, and wear protective eyewear. Keep your mouth closed while your technician works, and apply lip balm before your session starts to protect your lips. Be sure to avoid inhaling the product whether you wear nose plugs or not.
After Your Session: For the most radiant results, wear loose, dark clothing and avoid wearing an underwire bra after your appointment. Wear open shoes, such as flip-flops, and don't exercise or perform any activities that cause you to sweat until after your first shower. No stopping at the gym on your way home! For the next 12 -16 hours after your tanning session, avoid excess moisture and try not to get your skin wet.
