Best Smart Tanning Facility

Why we are a Smart Tanning facility:

Indoor tanning, if you can develop a tan, is an intelligent way to minimize the risk of sunburn while maximizing the enjoyment and benefit of having a tan. We call this SMART TANNING because tanners are taught by trained tanning facility personnel how their skin type reacts to sunlight and how to avoid sunburn outdoors, as well as in a salon.

Tanning in a professional facility today minimizes risk because the government regulates indoor tanning in the United States. In the United States, exposure times for every tanning session are established by a schedule present on every piece of equipment that takes into account the tanner’s skin type and the intensity of the equipment to deliver a dosage of sunlight designed to minimize the risk of sunburn.

The schedule, as regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, also takes into account how long an individual has been tanning, increasing exposure times gradually to minimize the possibility of burning. That kind of control is impossible outdoors, where variables including seasonality, time of day, weather conditions, reflective surfaces and altitude all make outdoor tanning a random act and sunburn prevention more difficult.

How Do Indoor Tanning Salons Teach Sunburn Prevention?

The indoor tanning industry is at the forefront in educating people how to successfully avoid sunburn over the course of one’s life. Studies of indoor tanners have shown consistently that indoor tanning customers once they begin tanning in a professional salon, are less likely to sunburn than they were before they started tanning. Studies have also shown that indoor tanners are less likely to sunburn outdoors as compared to non-tanners.

*We believe that teaching people strictly to avoid the sun may be making people more likely to sunburn when they do go outside for summer activities and everyone does go outdoors at some point."

Consider tanning is your body’s natural defense mechanism against sunburn, and indoor tanning equipment have activated this defense against burning – a tan essentially multiplies the ability of sunscreen worn outdoors to do its job. That’s one reason non-tanners are more vulnerable when they inevitably do go outdoors. Indoor tanners are educated at SunCare facilities how to avoid sunburn outdoors and how to properly moisturize their skin

Why We Promote Indoor Tanning As Smart Tanning Facility

The professional indoor tanning industry promotes responsible indoor tanning and sunburn prevention as “smart tanning facility.” We choose not to use the word “safe.” Here is why...

The word “safe” implies that one can recklessly abuse something without any fear of causing harm. And reckless abandon certainly is not the behavior the professional indoor tanning industry is teaching. In fact, we are playing a key role in successfully preventing that kind of reckless abuse.

By teaching a “smart” approach to sunburn prevention that recognizes that people do perceive different benefits from being in the sun, we are able to teach sunburn prevention in a practical way that respects both the potential benefits and the risks of sun exposure.

For example, previous generations believed that sunburn was an inconvenient but necessary precursor to developing a tan. Today we know better, and we are teaching a new generation of tanners how to avoid sunburn at all costs. Again, our position: Moderate tanning is the best way to maximize the potential benefits of sun exposure while minimizing the potential risks of either too much or too little exposure.

Smart Tanning Tips:

  • Tanning Bed Benefits Never over expose skin.
  • Tanning Bed Benefits Moist skin tans best; always use a indoor tanning lotion sold in an indoor tanning salon and an after tan lotion, or after shower hydrating moisturizer.
  • Tanning Bed Benefits Be wise, protect your eyes. Always wear FDA certified eye protection such as goggles or WINKEASE. Your eyes are very sensitive to UV light and should never be exposed while tanning. Sunglasses, towels, cotton balls, or closing your eyes are not adequate protection in a tanning unit. UV-light is responsible for both short and long-term injury to the eyes and can easily be avoided by properly using FDA-certified eyewear.
  • Tanning Bed Benefits Use a sunscreen on lips and other sensitive areas.
  • Tanning Bed Benefits Find out your skin type.
  • Tanning Bed Benefits Never tan while taking medications unless approved by your physician.
