SUNBEDS AND FAIR SKIN

People react differently to sunlight - depending on their skin type. Therefore, to tan correctly - either in natural sunlight or on a sunbed - it is important to know the type of skin you have.

Getting a quick tan is not possible without putting your health at risk. This, of course, applies all the more the paler your skin is. It you stay on a sunbed for too long, your skin will absorb too much UV energy which may cause skin irritations, itching or even sunburn.

After sunbathing, it takes two to three days for the photobiological reaction to become visible - in the form of a skin tan. If you want to get a deep tan without making excessive demands on your skin, you should plan one to two sunbed sessions a week, leaving about three days between each session. Eventually, one top-up session a week will be enough to keep your tan looking good.

Before tanning for the first time, always get your salon to prepare a tanning regime that's tailored to your particular type of skin.
