Safe Tanning Tips for a Glowing Summer Tan

Everybody loves a nice summer glow, but tanning can be complicated whether you're tanning on a bed, at the beach or poolside. Each method calls for different tanning etiquette. Here's a few tips....

For sun tanning:
  • Cleanse skin of all make-up creams and perfume liquids that make skin susceptible to sunburn
  • Moisturize with SPF lotion before and after tanning
  • Tan for 25-30 minutes
  • Wait 2 days before tanning again

For tanning beds:
  • Use lamps with low UVB rays, they make for a longer lasting tan
  • Do not remain in bed for more than 10-15 minutes
  • Don't tan completely naked
  • Use lotions with DHA (dehrdroxy acetone). Its makes skin glow brighter
