Using a Tanning Bed

  • Call your local salon and find out what kinds of tanning beds are best to meet your needs.
  • Ask about tanning packages to save money.
  • Find out about tanning products to help achieve your look and keep your skin healthy. You can usually purchase these at the salon or from an online tanning supply company.
  • Take a bag with a towel, tanning goggles, tanning products, and a ponytail holder or headband.
  • When you get to the salon and enter the tanning room, be sure you have your tanning goggles. Always wear them when tanning.
  • You can tan nude, wear underwear, or a swimsuit.
  • Apply tanning lotion to your body. Use special lotion made just for your face.
  • Put your hair back in a headband and/or pull your hair into a ponytail.
  • If the tanning bed is horizontal, open the lid and lay down. Your salon may provide a pillow and fan (if there's not one built into the bed). Turn the fan on high.
  • If you are using a stand up tanning bed, you may move around freely and raise your arms for an even tan.
  • Be sure to put on your tanning goggles. Press the start button to begin.
  • Relax and enjoy the rays. The light will turn off when you are finished.

What should I do to tan my face?

More Tanning Tips for the Tanning Process: Your Face

  • For facial tanning in salon or residential tanning beds, be sure to get information about your skin type from a professional to find the best way to approach the tanning process for your particular complexion.
  • Facial tanning can give you a healthy looking glow, but be aware of the effects of tanning beds and take precautions. You may need a much higher SPF product for your face, especially if you are: fair-skinned, prone to freckling, aging, if you have moles, or if you have had many burns from a history of tanning outdoors. Reapply sunscreen often to avoid burns.
  • Use moisturizer. Many tanning bed lotions have Vitamin E and tyrosine that help prevent wrinkles and fine lines. Don't forget the 'after tan' facial moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.
  • If your tanning bed has a facial tanning option, only use it for a short amount of time during your first several sessions and gradually increase the time as you go.
  • Don't forget your lips - use SPF lip balm when tanning.
  • Always wear tanning goggles to protect your eyes from UV damage.
  • You have the potential to get a great, healthy looking tan, but always follow advice from professionals and protect your skin with SPF products and moisturizers.

  • You dealer will know what types of tanning bed cleaners are best for your specific unit. Only use recommended products.
  • Industry professionals know the business. There are imitators who make "Wolff" tanning bed parts that do not meet the standards of a true Wolff system.
