Preventing Damage From Sunbeds

How to Attract Male Customers to Your Tanning Salon

If you want to use sunbeds, here are some tips to reduce the risk of damage:

Limit your exposure time

It’s essential to limit your exposure time in a sunbed to the recommended guidelines. Start with a short time and gradually increase it until you reach the maximum recommended time for your skin type.

Protect your eyes

Use protective eyewear to prevent damage to your eyes from UV radiation.

Use sunscreen

Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 before using a sunbed to reduce the risk of skin damage.

Avoid using sunbeds frequently

Try to limit the frequency of sunbed use. It’s best to use them only occasionally.

Check the sunbed’s condition

Make sure the sunbed you’re using is in good condition and regularly maintained to ensure that the UV radiation output is accurate and not excessive.

Consider your skin type

Be aware of your skin type and choose the right sunbed accordingly. If you have fair skin, you should use a sunbed with a lower intensity of UV radiation.

Be aware of medication and health conditions

Some medications, such as antibiotics and acne medications, can make your skin more sensitive to UV radiation. If you have any health conditions that make you more susceptible to sun damage, such as lupus or psoriasis, avoid using sunbeds altogether.

Moisturize after tanning

After using a sunbed with tanning oil, it’s important to moisturize your skin to help prevent dryness and maintain your tan.
