Fun Tan Tanning Tips
Our tanning beds offer more tanning surface area and better lamps; giving you a better tan while making your tanning experience more comfortable.
Each tanning unit is in a completely private room behind a locked door. You will tan in comfort listening to your favorite music.
Plan 5 to 10 sessions scheduled consecutively to build a dark tan base. 1 to 3 sessions a week thereafter will maintain your tan all year round if you so desire.
People with lighter complexions who burn very easily in the sun may want to start with sessions every other day. Sunbathe moderately but regularly.
You may tan in a swimsuit or in the nude. Areas of skin that have never been tanned before should be exposed gradually, as they may be more sensitive.
Only specifically formulated tanning products (i.e. lotions) are allowed in the tanning beds. Other products formulated for outdoor tanning may be ineffective in the beds and will damage the acrylic sheets. Fun Tan carries some of the nation’s best tanning and skin care products because we understand and stress the importance of lotion use for developing a great tan and keeping your skin healthy.
You must wear eye protection in the tanning units. Your eyes do not have protection from the UV light that your skin has.
You may want to remove all make-up before tanning. It can cause uneven tanning and some cosmetics can cause a skin reaction.
Some people experience a heat rash or itching when starting a tanning program. It is caused by exposure to heat and UV light when the skin is not yet conditioned. If this occurs, we suggest increasing the length between sessions until your skin becomes acclimated.
