Sunbed Tanning

The guide to getting the perfect glow

The sun. It’s the fundamental ingredient for all life forms. Through its light, warmth and radiant energy, the sun provides the basis for all life on our planet. It stimulates the mind and the soul. It provides a sense of inner peace and well being that comforts and energizes. When the sun is shining, spirits are lifted and rejuvenated.

Regular exposure to sunlight allows your skin to naturally produce vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your body

  • strengthen bones
  • regulate blood pressure
  • reduce stress and tension
  • keep hair, skin and nails
    strong and healthy

The sun creates UV light, which is responsible for tanning and is divided into 2 categories: UVA or UVB.

UVA’s main role in the tanning process is oxidizing melanin, the browning pigment that tans the skin. UVB triggers melanin production in the skin. Both types of UV rays play a significant role and are needed for a balanced tanning process.

Tan Fact: Our state-of-the-art tanning equipment is designed to replicate the UVA and UVB produced by the sun, while allowing you to control your exposure.

Follow the recommended exposure schedule for your skin type. If you’re unsure or have questions regarding your skin type, consult with your certified Desert Sun Tanning consultant who will advise you on the proper procedures.
