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 is your body’s natural defense against sunburns. It’s what your body was designed to do! But going from a body of sun-deprived skin to a gorgeous natural tan isn’t always foolproof. The following Tanning, Tips, & Tricks have been created to educate tanners to prepare your skin before each session, protect it during, and enhance your tan after.
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.
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.
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.
