All about tanning

Getting a tan may seem like an easy goal to achieve. You either just lay out in the sun for several hours on a regular basis (to maintain the tan), or you enroll at a local reputable tanning salon and jump into your tanning schedule of 15 minute tans underneath the state-of-the-art tanning beds. Simple, right? It is if you do not care about the health of your skin and the quality of your tan.

If those are considerations that you are taking into account, then before you jump into any form of tanning, it would be best to first listen to the useful and important advice from the experts. Just starting a tanning session without knowing anything is too risky. It is of utmost importance to review and understand the recommended tanning schedules appropriate for each person and each skin type to ensure an ultimate tanning experience.

Ignoring your skin type can create unnecessary tanning risks. For example, if you naturally are light complected, with light colored eyes, light colored skin and freckles, and natural red or blond hair, you are at higher risk for burning your skin under prolonged exposure to the sun or any UV light. If you cannot tan when you are outdoors, then you likely are not going to be able to tan indoors in a tanning bed.

Regardless of your skin type, if you ignore the frequency limits of tanning and the limits on the length of time you are allowed to tan during each session, you are putting yourself at risk for damaging your skin. When you first begin tanning, the best tanning salons in Dallas will recommend that you gradually build up to your base tan. Originally, for your first several tanning sessions, you may only tan for 10 minute intervals, and never more than once in 24 hours. Every other day should be sufficient until your base tan is established. Afterwards, you may gradually increase the tanning sessions to 15 minute intervals. Even after your base tan is established, you would never exceed a 20 minute tanning session, as this is the limit that all reputable tanning salons will allow. Your Dallas tanning experience can be a wonderful, relaxing experience that gives you a full body makeover and a beautiful warm, healthy glow. It does not have to be a risky experience if you use common sense and listen to the advice of the professionals.
