New Year, New You! Take care of your skin before indoor tanning!


Have you already made a new year’s resolutions list?


There is something magical about the beginning of 2020, a time for a change during this time seems tobring in apower of making your life better. We look to the future with hope that we leave the bad things behind and new better opportunities await us in the upcoming months. When you think of the new year’s resolutions, you probably have in mind the most popular ones, such as going to the gym every day, getting fit, quitting smoking or taking better care of yourself. But these general ideas of being better or getting more exercises are not enough to get you to do them. When making new year’s resolutions you need to be precise and remember not to aim too high! If you fail once or twice at the start, you will discourage yourself and definitely won’t be able to continue them for the whole year. A better plan is to make small changes and slowly break the unhealthy habits.


Most of us decide also to improveour self-care to look better and feel better. One of the elements of a prettier appearance is a sun-kissed look! You may not think of it at first but remember that being tan and having that natural glow all year round is a perfect accessory to all the glamorous outfits, romantic evenings or taking selfies!

So if 2020 is a year to be tanned, keep on reading!



Safety always comes first


No matter if you are a beginner or an advanced tanner, you should always pay close attention to your safety when using sunbeds. We assume you know the contraindications to tanning and know that pregnant women, people allergic to UV light and using certain medications mustn’t tan, right?


Okay, so first of all, make sure you’re using the right tanning equipment. This means asking the staff if, basically speaking, it’s not too strong for you. Secondly, remember to adjust the time of tanning to your skin type and frequency of tanning. It’s never a good idea to spend two long sessions instead of a few shorter ones. And whenever you tan, put the protective goggles on. They should be available (fresh and clean!) in the tanning studio but in most places you can purchase them if you prefer to have a pair on your own.


Once you can put a tick next to these two points, grab a professional tanning lotion. Professional means created for indoor tanning, free from SPF and checked under the specific environment of a sunbed. Why do you need it? Indoor tanning lotions boost your sunbed sessions and help keep your skin healthy and happy. Intensifiers encourage skin to produce melanin more quickly, while bronzers help achieve deeper and darker tan. The moisturizing and skin conditioning properties of the lotions prevent dry skin, ease the absorption of the UV light during a sunbed tanning session, counteract the aging effects and promote the longevity of your desired tanning results.
