How to sunbathe in a solarium: rules and recommendations

Many people enjoy soaking up some UV rays in a solarium, but there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure you’re doing it safely. This blog post will cover some of the basic rules and recommendations for sunbathing in a solarium. Whether you’re new to using a solarium or want to brush up on the basics, read on for everything you need to know.

Skin type

You should first know your skin type when visiting a solarium. It will help you get a tan. Skin type = time spent in the solarium. You can determine your skin type with our scale.

  1. For people with dark skin, olive undertones, dark eyes, and dark hair, tanning will be safe and fast. They can lie under the lamps for 8-10 minutes without worrying about getting burned.
  2. People with slightly dark skin, dark blond or brown hair, gray or hazel eyes, and no freckles can also tan without worrying about burns. But they should already think about using additional protection. Time – 6-8 minutes.
  3. If you have fair skin with few freckles, remember that you can burn quickly in a solarium. Use protection and stay in the solarium for at most 5 minutes.
  4. If you have very light skin, pale skin, many freckles, moles, or hypersensitivity, you need to be careful when tanning in a tanning bed. It can be harmful. If you must tan a little, use high-quality protection, and don’t stay under the lamps for more than 3 minutes.

Solarium tanning rules

  • Before going to the solarium, take a long shower with a gel that makes you tan evenly or soap with a neutral pH.
  • In the presence of makeup, also use a neutral agent to remove it;
  • Make sure to take off all your jewelry;
  • You should use mole and nipple protection from the sun. After 30 years, we recommend that you use a solarium to get a tan instead of sunbathing without a shirt on;
  • Remember to wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the sun. Remove your lenses before you go outside, as they can be damaged by exposure to UV rays, and this will make it difficult to see;
  • Protect your hair;
  • Put some balm on your lips to protect them from the sun;
  • Apply special tanning creams to the skin before going outside. The cream prevents the skin from getting burned or having age spots. The cream will also help the skin get a tan faster;
  • Do not spend too much time in the solarium. It is better to take a shorter amount of time and then next time increase than to get burned and not be able to go to the solarium for two to three weeks;
  • You can take a shower only after 4 hours of the session. You must put lotion on your skin afterward;
  • You cannot go to the solarium after you have had a cosmetic procedure done;
  • Drink freshly squeezed carrot, mango, or apricot juice to help you tan more effectively and faster. These juices are rich in carotene, which helps contribute to a better tan.
