Indoor Tanning

By Haywood Hunter

When meeting someone with a beautiful tan, there is an immediate impression of a person who is healthy and ready to take on the world. This first impression can really be meaningful when going on a first date, meeting new clients or experiencing other important things in life. This look is available with indoor tanning.

This salon process has advanced tremendously since it was first introduced in the U. S. In 1979. Booths or beds are now available all over the country, located in sites such as beauty shops, spas or separate facilities. They are monitored by the Federal Food and Drug Administration Agency for eye protection, length of exposure, safety rules, labeling and other features.

To create the rays necessary for a tan, fluorescent lamps (UVC) are used. This produces the same effect of sun rays, but in a more concentrated manner. Acrylic shields are located throughout to give protection to the body.

This manner of achieving a good tan is excellent for people who are limited on time. The maximum exposure allowed is 20 minutes per session. It usually requires one or two visits per week to maintain the tan. This is how so many working people are able to obtain a fresh look even though they have been confined to an office all day.

Realizing there is some risk when exposed to these kinds of rays, employees and customers are receiving "smart tanning" tips. These are instructions which teach how to minimize risk and maximize benefits. These indoor tans still require protection from the sun when outdoors.

Indoor tanning is great for anyone who wishes to look and feel good. Special lotions are required when engaging in this kind of program and there are numerous kinds available. Having a body that is tanned presents a picture of someone who is active and conscious of the importance of looking good.
