Tanning Lotion in Sun Beds

What will happen if I don’t use a lotion?

In door and out-door tanning are similar in nature, they both activate your bodies own melanin production.  When tanning without a lotion it takes your body 5 to 7 minutes to start to produce its own melanin.  For someone who is in a sun bed that is only tanning for 5 or 6 minutes isn’t really producing any melanin there for the tanner won’t see significant results.

However, using a tanning lotion such as Australian Gold, Squeeze, Millenium, Designer Skin, Supre

Are goggles really mandatory?

Yes, goggles are mandatory when in door tanning.


By tanning in doors with out eye protection you are putting your eyes at risk of Glaucoma, Cataracts and flash burns.  Placing a towel over your face while tanning whether in doors or out does not protect your eyes from the UV light, in fact, you are also risking burning the delicate eye lids.

Tanning goggles will block 99.9% of the UV light from penetrating the eye lids, just like sunglasses for out doors.  In door tanning  goggles are to fit snugly to the eye area preventing any light from getting in.

Sun Spa does not sanitize goggle for the clients protection and we recommend that no one wear sanitized goggles. In door tanning goggles are very affordable at $3.00 a pair, their benefits are worth their weight in gold,  if you happen to forget your goggles, no worries, we have one time use goggles that can be purchased for $1.00
