Adopting a contemporary approach to tanning ensures both safety and enjoyment. It’s essential to customise your tanning routine based on your unique skin type. The positive effects of UV light on our well-being are well-known, though many may not realise the crucial role UV rays play in our everyday health. Properly managed UV light exposure not only enhances our health but also provides several additional benefits:

Pre-Holiday Preparation

Reduced Risk of Sunburn: Starting your holiday with a pre-tan can lower the risk of sunburn. This preparation allows your skin to gradually acclimate to sun exposure, enabling you to enjoy the sunshine for extended periods right from the outset of your vacation.

Post-Holiday Glow

Extended Tan: Continuing your tanning routine after your holiday can help maintain your tan, boosting your appearance and confidence throughout the year.

Health and Wellness Benefits

  • Stress Reduction: Tanning sessions offer a relaxing escape from everyday stresses.
  • Vitamin D3 Production: UV light is essential for the production of Vitamin D3, which is vital for bone health and the prevention of conditions such as osteoporosis.

  • Combating Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.): Regular UV light exposure can help alleviate the symptoms of S.A.D., commonly known as ‘winter blues’.

  • Dermatological Benefits: Proven to effectively treat skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

  • Enhanced Immunity: Exposure to UV light has been associated with increased resistance to infections and viral illnesses.

Understanding UV Light

UV light is divided into three categories: UVA, UVB, and UVC. Sunbeds are equipped with a balanced combination of UVA and UVB, and the intensity is determined by the ratio of these rays and the wattage of the tubes.

Your Skin Type and Tanning

Your hair and eye colour can often indicate your natural ability to tan or your risk of burning. We will assist you in determining your skin type and planning your tanning sessions accordingly.
