Speed: It doesn't take all day to get a tan indoors. Depending on your skin type, just a few minutes, not hours. Maintain your tan for as little as 60 minutes a month.
Climate: Overcast, rainy, or 109 degrees in the shade, you never have to worry about the weather with your pleasant, climate-controlled environment.
​Control your ultraviolet UV-A and UV-B exposure: When you tan outdoors, you are exposed to uncontrolled and often excessive amounts of multi-frequency UV that can cause “sunburn” and permanent damage.  We make sure you tan and not burn.

TANNING TIPS AND TRICKS

  • WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR:  Eyelids are too thin to block UV radiation causing irreversible damage to your eyes in little to no time at all ~ NEVER TAN WITHOUT PROTECTING YOUR EYES.  
  • Use SPF lip balm each time you tan to protect your super sensitive and easy to burn lips.
  • Use tanning lotions to absorb the most UV light from your session.  A 10 minute tanning session without lotion will only absorb 5 minutes of UV light.

  • To avoid white circles on your shoulders, buttocks, and/or lower waist (which are "pressure points"), alternate positions so the blood flow will not be constricted in these areas.
  • Tanning Nude:  If you plan to tan nude, be careful about areas not accustomed to sunlight.
  • Don't Shower for at least 6 hours after your tanning session.  
  • Apply a tan extending lotion immediately after your tanning session to lock in bronzers and extend the life of your tan.
  • Moisturize Daily: Moisturizing your skin before, during & after is the key to obtaining the perfect glowing tan.

  • THE GOLDEN TANNING SAFE RULE:   Don't Ever allow yourself to BURN!
  • PROTECT YOUR EYES: Never tan without eye protection.  Eyelids are too thin to block UV and can be easily damaged if not protected during your tanning session.  The FDA requires he use of eye goggles during every tanning session.  Inadequate eye protection can lead to several forms of eye disease such as cataracts, photokeratitis, pterygium and eye lid cancer.
  • PROTECT YOUR LIPS:  Use SPF lip balm each time you tan to protect your super sensitive and easy to burn lips.
  • CERTAIN MEDICATIONS CAN MAKE YOU BURN: Some medications can cause reactions with UV light.  If your are taking medication be sure to consult your doctor prior to tanning. 


  • Try tanning in a bed for a few minutes, followed by a stray tan immediately after to open up your pores.  This allows the solution from the spray to absorb deeper into the skin, giving you darker color that lasts longer.
  • Each tanning bed/booth produces different results.  Be sure to try different beds/booths to maximize your tanning experience.
  • Use stand up booth 1x per week to even out your color.
  • Get a Spray tan session to ELIMINATE any TAN LINES.
  • AVOID RACCOON EYES:  You can avoid getting raccoon eyes by gently adjusting your goggles while you tan.


Bronzers and Tanning Lotions are the key element for advanced development of your tan.  To get the best results with your tan possible, you should invest in a body scrub to exfoliate skin, tanning lotion, tan extending moisturizer, and a tan extending body wash.

  • Exfoliate Your Skin: Use a body scrub rather than a bar of soap.  Spend extra time exfoliating areas with thick skin, such as knees, elbows and ankles. Dry dull or dead skin cells will actually retract bronzers and UV radiation and lead to uneven results.
  • Moisturize Daily: Moisturizing your skin before, during & after is the key to obtaining the perfect glowing tan.
  • Remove Make-Up: Remove any make-up that might interfere with tanning results.
  • Don't wear Deodorant or Perfume. 
  • Remove watches and jewelry to avoid unsightly tan lines.
  • Apply tanning lotion immediately prior your session.
  • PROTECT YOUR TATOO:  Apply SPF lip balm to your Tattoo's to avoid fading.


DURING YOUR SESSION


How does our skin Tan? Tanning occurs in the skin’s outermost layer, the epidermis, with special cells called melanocytes.  When exposed to UV-B light (short wave / ultra violet) melanocytes produce the pigment, melanin.  The pinkish melanin travels up through the epidermis and is absorbed by other skin cells.  When exposed to UV-A light (longer wave), melanin oxidizes or darkens.  This is your skin’s way of protecting itself against too much UV light. 
WHY DOES A TAN FADE? Cells in the epidermis are constantly reproducing and pushing older cells upward toward the surface of your skin, where they are sloughed off in about one month. As your skin replaces its cells, the cells laden with melanin are removed. So the tanning process must continue with the new cells. By using lotions, shower gels, and soaps which are specifically designed for tanning, you will achieve the deepest and longest lasting tan possible.  
WHY IS INDOOR TANNING BETTER THAN OUTDOOR?
  • MOISTURIZING before, during & after is the key to obtaining the perfect glowing tan.
  • Alternate between a bronzer and a white lotion to get a more natural looking tan.
  • Apply a tan extending lotion immediately after your tanning session to lock in bronzers and extend the life of your tan.
  • Facial lotions are a great way to protect your facial skin against clogging your pores and provide anti-aging protection.
  • Always apply bronzers in a circular motion to avoid streaking. 
  • Lotion should not be exposed to extreme temperatures.  Heat can tamper with the chemical makeup of the lotion.
  • Never use outdoor taking lotion or oils.
  • If you feel you have been overexposed, use an aloe-based lotion or gel like Aloe Freeze Gel.
