What is tanning and how does it work?

Tanning is the process of exposing your skin to ultraviolet rays in order to achieve a darkened skin tone. Many people enjoy the activity of outdoor tanning by laying out in the sun, but tanning can also be fulfilled through artificial sunlight sources such as UV lamps which are commonly found in tanning beds.

Sunbeds, tanning beds, or tanning booths are well-known mediums of obtaining sun-kissed skin without ever setting foot outside. These types of devices all employ the same technology, featuring long, specialized light bulbs that emit ultraviolet radiation with many salons offering different levels of tanning beds that can give off either stronger or weaker UV light—resulting in a lighter or deeper tan.

Before going to your tanning appointment, most tanning specialists recommend showering, shaving, and exfoliating one to two days before your tanning session to help your skin achieve a uniform and even tan. It is also imperative to consult with a doctor if you’re taking any medications, since some medicines can increase skin sensitivity while tanning. As for tanning bed safety, always remember to wear a pair of specialized tanning goggles which will be provided by your tanning salon, as ultraviolet light can be harmful to the eyes.

How much does a tanning session cost?

The costs associated with indoor tanning sessions can fluctuate depending on a number of factors including the location of the tanning salon, what level of tanning bed is being used, and how many minutes of tanning you’re going for. On average, a single tanning session can average between ten and twenty-five dollars, but this cost can increase with add-ons such as tanning lotions or sun stickers. Some salons also offer package deals, where you’re able to buy multiple tanning sessions at a lower price than if you were to buy them individually. To check specific pricing, you can take a look at your favorite tanning salons on Booksy, where the prices will be listed next to each service.
