Besides using self-tanning products any person is able to achieve a golden tan choosing indoor tanning methods available in sunless tanning salons.
Indoor tanning is not as simple as self-tanning or self-application. Instead, indoor tanning equipment (tanning bed equipment, tanning bed lotion, tanning oil and so on) gives the customers much more privacy and safety and professional assistance.
Indoor tanning equipment means the set, the technique and the technology all put together in the same room thus presenting a sunless tanning unit. The social impact of sunless tanning is growing. A lot of people embrace this lifestyle year by year, as a healthy way of maintaining the appeal of a tanned skin.
The tanning industry is flourishing. It's hard to imagine how many vehicles or entities are behind the salons and how many professional trainers, indoor tanning equipment and accessories are needed to comfort and satisfy demanding indoor tanners.
First of all, a tanning bed can be of a vertical or a lie-down type. Secondly, the bed and lamp work together, thus providing the ultraviolet light to the client. Each type of tanning bed bulb or tanning lamp (vertical or lie-down) has its own supporters. Some owners prefer the vertical type, for the easy cleaning after the session (bench, canopy acrylics, goggles, wipe and vacuum fans and vents, hoses). Also, in a limited space, more vertical tanning beds can be accommodated, which is very convenient for a salon owner. Others prefer classic sunless beds, since clients expect a private, quiet manner to relax, far away from the office, the mobile phone and other worries and obligations. The intensity of the tan and the tanning speed depend on three factors: the UV output from the lamps; the skin type; the distance between the body and the tubes.
Besides a tanning bed bulb or a tanning bed lamp, tanning bed lotion or other tanning bed products have to be applied before a tanning session, depending on the skin type. Tanning oil is also recommended in salons.
Tanning oil is a basic ingredient and should be always at hand because of its easy application to the skin. Yet, there are two different types: tanning oil assimilated to sunscreen; tanning oil used just for intensifying the outdoor suntan.
It is of great interest how a tanning oil works. Tanning oils can have various compositions, including either an organic chemical compound absorbing UV rays(such as oxybenzone) or an opaque element reflecting light (such as zinc oxyde). In both cases, the indoor UV rays are blocked.
On the other hand, indoor tanning must be restricted for some categories. Diabetics, pregnant and breast feeding women, asthmatics and those suffering from breathing problems have to be extremely careful. To remove some side effects of the indoor tanning exposure (heat, air-blowing, skin dryness), there are accessories such as blankets, saunas and goggles available for consumers.
The indoor tanning equipment provides a base tan which you can boast after 4 weeks of procedures (up 3 to 5 times weekly, 20 minutes each session). To maintain the result, the indoor tanner has to move thereafter to a conventional bed, available at salons or beauty shops or even at your own home.
