Tips for Smarter Tanning

Tanning is your body’s natural defense against sunburn, so for best results, beware of the burn! Our expert Tanning Consultants will help you determine your best plan for a golden-bronzed tan.
Before you plan to tan in tanning bed, here are a few best practices you should keep in mind:

Before you Tan
Be sure to shower, exfoliate and moisturize. Remove your makeup, perfume, deodorant, watches and jewelry. Make sure any meds you’re taking aren’t photosensitive. Apply special indoor tanning products right before your session.

While you tan
Wear eye protection and lip balm, and bring coverups for sensitive areas if you’re tanning in the nude—just in case. If your skin stings, end your session.

After you tan
For radiant results, don’t forget to moisturize. Apply tan extenders to keep that rich and golden look for even longer. If you happened to take it just a little too far, try aloe-based gels for immediate relief.
Tanning Bed FAQs
What should I do to care for my tan?

All of our products are formulated to help your skin stay well-nourished and moisturized and to keep your tan glowing and vibrant. Ask your Tanning Consultant which products are the best for your skin type before you leave Sun Tan City. When showering, consider using the gentle ingredients of a tan-extending body wash. It is a great way to cleanse your skin while also nourishing and extending your tan.

After showering, liberally apply one of our tan extenders. Our tan-extending lotions feature special enhancers that will make your tan stay vibrant longer while nourishing and softening skin. Be sure to drink plenty of water to nourish your skin from the inside, too, for maximum tan effectiveness. Finally, be sure to wait a full 24 hours for the tanning process to complete before coming back to tan again. As long as your skin stays soft and healthy and shows no signs of reddening, Sun Tan City welcomes you to come back in order to deepen your color and maintain your shine.

What should I wear when tanning in a tanning bed?

Your room at Sun Tan City is entirely private, and employees will not interrupt you during your tanning session. You are free to wear whatever you like to make the most of your tanning experience. Many of those who enjoy private indoor tanning do so in the nude. Nude tanning provides the most even coverage, as well as a sense of total-body relaxation you just can’t get anywhere else. However, because tender areas of your body are exposed during your sessions that are not accustomed to being exposed to sunlight, you will want to introduce your body to nude exposure at a relaxed pace. For those with concerns about sanitation or modesty, you are also welcome to tan wearing swimwear of any coverage level, or any other tan-through fabric item of clothing. The choice is yours!

Is there a minimum tanning age?

Sun Tan City welcomes anyone 18 and older to come in to experience our quality tanning bed at any time. However, we do employ strict age guidelines for those under the age of 18—the FDA-recommended minimum age for tanning beds. The minimum age for tanning is regulated by individual state laws.

Generally, unless regulated by your state laws, if you’re between the ages of 14 and 18 and would like to enjoy our tanning bed options, you’re welcome to do so, provided that your parent or legal guardian co-signs for your Sun Tan City Membership and provides his or her informed consent for you to use our tanning bed equipment and other services–by signing our parental consent form.

If you’re under 16, we ask that your parent or guardian stay at the facility for the duration of your tanning session. No one under age 14 may use a tanning bed.

However, anyone can use our spray tan booths, and we fully encourage it!

 

 

What can I expect after tanning?
After sun tanning, our hope is that you feel warm and relaxed and that you continue to feel your best throughout the rest of your day. However, you may not see results immediately following your tanning session. You may feel the glow of your skin at work, but your bronze color may not be visible for several hours. In fact, it may continue for up to 24 hours! To nurture your skin and make sure your tan reaches its full golden color, consider investing in one of our specially formulated tan-extending lotions before you leave Sun Tan City. These products are designed to keep skin soft and healthy and keep your tan looking its best.
Do I have to make an appointment at Sun Tan City?

Nope! In order to offer tanning sessions at Sun Tan City on your schedule, tanning visits are first-come, first-serve. However, you can check-in to tan in when you're logged in and on our App!
