The Benefits of Indoor Tanning

Indoor Tanning can Have Multiple Great Benefits.Though extensive tanning and burning can have serious adverse effects on your body, regulated tanning can actually have beneficial effects as well. In fact, indoor tanning can help you stay healthier and keep your skin more vibrant and healthy.

Vitamin D

Sunlight is an important natural source of vitamin D for most people. In fact, 80 percent of the world has some level of vitamin D deficiency that contributes to health problems such as digestion, energy levels, depression, and blood pressure problems. Artificial sources of sunlight such as tanning beds can deliver the needed vitamin D your body needs for healthy processes just like the sun does which makes tanning beds a good alternative.

Thyroid Gland

UV light can be a great stimulation for thyroid glands which help to regulate your metabolism and weight gain. People who are struggling with shedding or keeping off pounds or have slow digestion can actually benefit from short, regular spurts in the tanning beds UV lights.

Clearer Skin

We have all heard that the sun can help clear your skin of blemishes like acne and oil. Actually, UV lights in a tanning bed can do the same thing. As you tan on the bed, UV lights can help revitalize your skin, reducing blemishes, itching, redness, and dryness.

Though there are serious risks that accompany tanning too often or too long, your body can benefit from short spurts of regular indoor tanning. To find out more about the benefits of tanning or to schedule a tanning appointment call the Cancun Tan experts at any of their 6 locations.

Tanning for the Fair-Skinned

If you have fair skin, you may feel as though you will never be able to have a good tan. It seems as though you just burn, peel, and go back to pale; it seems as though tanning for the fair-skinned is impossible. If you have fair skin and want a tan, you can do this without damaging your skin.

Take Care and Be Patient

There is no such thing as an instant natural tan, even for those who tan easily. You must be patient, or you could damage your skin. If you have pale skin, take it slow. Your tanning bed operator can help you figure out how much you should be tanning, and how often. Don’t get overexcited and try to speed things up.

The first few times you try, you may be disappointed if you set your expectations too high, both in terms of speed and results. For fair-skinned people, a dark tan may not be right for your skin type. Instead, go for something more subtle, and expect to take time to get there so that the process remains gentle enough for your skin.

As you go through the process, continue moisturizing your skin. Protect it from the sun with SPF, too. You don’t want to cause damage by going to a tanning salon, and then exposing your sensitive skin to the sun. Tanning beds are controlled environments, while the sun and the elements are not.

Relaxation

Relaxation is another key to healing, and the warmth is perfect for aiding relaxation. In fact, many clients fall asleep during the treatment.

Tips for Indoor Tanning Preparation

Tanning Preparation

To Achieve the Perfect Tan, Follow a Few Simple Steps.

To make the most of every session, it makes sense to practice some indoor tanning preparation. These tips will help you make the most of your time, and receive a healthier tan to boot. To both protect your skin and maximize your tan, follow these strategies in anticipation of your next session.

Exfoliate

You should ideally exfoliate every day of the week preceding your tanning session. When you exfoliate, you remove dead skin cells to create a smooth surface for your new tan. To do this, use a body pouf and scrub the skin with a gentle soap. You can also use a commercial kit available at most drug stores or beauty outlets.

Apply Lotion

Before the actual tanning session, make sure you apply an in-door tanning lotion. This preps your skin for the session and maximizes its effectiveness. Apply the lotion with a circular movement across your entire body to achieve an even tan. Do not use outdoor tanning lotions, as they can damage the indoor equipment.

What to Wear

Check with your salon to learn about any tanning bed clothing requirements. Follow these, or decide whether you feel most comfortable in a bathing suit, undergarments, or nothing at all. Make sure to remove all jewelry prior to the session, protect your eyes with goggles, and avoid all perfumes and makeup.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Spray Tan

Extend Your Spray Tan

Extend Your Spray Tan With These Tips!

Are you new to spray tanning? One of the most common questions we get is, “How long will my spray tan last?” Typically, you can expect your spray tan to last 7 to 10 days, but with the proper care, you may be able to get it to last longer. Below, we have listed some of our best tips to keep your spray tan lasting longer! If you are interested in learning more, visit us at one of our helpful locations!

Prep Your Skin

Before you go in for your spray tan, wax 2 days prior, or shave the day before. If you try to do either the morning of, you will likely have leftover residue on your skin that will prevent the spray tan from soaking in. If you do either of them afterwards, you risk waxing or shaving the spray tan right off!

Wait to Bathe

For best results, wait a full 18 to 24 hours before bathing, so your skin has the most time to absorb the products.

Exfoliate Before, Not After!

Exfoliating before lets the spray tan absorb into fresh new skin without a hitch! Exfoliating after can take the spray tan off. We recommend using a shower gel, without soap in it, to bathe, as well as using your hands, instead of your usual loofah or wash cloth. The less you exfoliate after getting your spray tan, the longer it will last. After bathing, pat yourself dry with the towel, instead of rubbing.

Wear Loose Clothing

Hand in hand with the no exfoliating tip, tight clothing can rub off the spray tan faster. Show off your new tan with shorts, or wear loose clothing that will prevent friction from disrupting your tan.

Four Myths About Spray Tans

spray tans

Get ready for summer with a spray tan from Cancun Tan!

Despite the fact that spray tanning has become more popular than ever, several myths still abound. Unfortunately, these myths can keep people from ever experiencing spray tans. Read on to learn about the most pernicious inaccuracies about this fun, beneficial procedure.

Spray Tans Look Unnatural

The most common misconception about a spray tan comes from the color. If you receive your spray tan from a reputable source like Cancun Tan, you do not need to worry about an unnatural orange color. In fact, you control the intensity of the color yourself. When in doubt, always stick to lighter shades for an ideal glow.

Spray Tans Fade Quickly

This rumor only becomes true if you completely fail to care for your tan. Proper exfoliation before, combined with the application of moisturizers afterward, will more than double the life of your tan.

Spray Tans Get Messy

Many people believe that a spray tan is a sticky, runny mess. When received from professional source, however, spray tans completely dry within minutes. They also get airbrushed directly onto the skin at high-speeds, which prevents run-off.

Spray Tans Are Dangerous

The only things dangerous about a spray tan are the myths associated with them. A spray tan uses the same chemicals as any self-tanner, and hold no greater danger. The only way to become endangered from a spray tan is to swallow a large quantity.
