Not so long ago, a lot of people carried around the idea that in order to tan, the fair-skinned among us had to suffer a sunburn first. If peeling could be avoided, the red skin would turn tan.
Nothing could be further from the truth! The fact is that a sunburn is an injury to skin now, and can be a cause of more problems later. So, sunburn has to avoided.
Those of us who are most susceptible to sunburn, but able to tan with care, especially enjoy the control that comes along with indoor tanning. By measured, steady exposure, the burn is avoided while your skin slowly but surely builds its ability to create a tan.
We take pride in properly evaluating your skin type and tanning you in a responsible way.

Wearing eye protection is just as important with indoor tanning as it is with outdoor sun exposure.

It may be a bit of a nuisance but it is very important.

Your eyelids alone offer almost no protection, only blocking about 25% of UV light. Without the proper eye protection you can damage the cornea and retina of the eye, and may later on lead to cataracts. 

There are also short term effects such as tired itchy eyes, headaches, loss of night vision, or difficulty seeing colours.

Federally approved eye wear is available for purchase at our Salon.



Certain medications can make your skin more sensitive to UV light, causing you to burn easily. Ask your Doctor/Pharmacist if the medication your taking is photosensitive.
Certain things when put on or in your body can increase your sensitivity to UV light, just to name a few, oral contraceptives, cosmetics, perfumes, after-shaves, etc.
Heat rash or tanner's itch may indicate that the light and heat generated when tanning have dried your skin or it can be a sign of too much exposure. Itching is usually in the beginning of tanning and will be in particular areas of the body where you have reduced rate of protective melanin. 
Build your tanning time gradually allowing melanin production to increase. 
You are less likely to develop a tanners itch if you use a tanning lotion before and after your session.

Ideally, a person should probably wait a few hours after tanning to take a shower. Since bathing robs the skin of essential nutrients and moisture. Taking a shower directly after a tan won't eliminate the tan altogether, but it will minimize the total impact of that individual session. Remember to always moisturize after bathing.
If you're an avid swimmer, it is best to swim and shower 2-3 hours before or after a tanning session. 
Your skin is the largest and most essential organ, all the more reason to take care of it while tanning.
