Whether you are tanning on a home tanning bed such as the SunQuest Pro 22RS or a commercial tanning bed such as the SunStar 332, you need to take some precautions to avoid damaging the tanning bed components. This may include the tanning bed bulbs and acrylic.
Your skin should be free of cosmetics, tanning oils, or other body lotions prior to tanning. Only use those specifically made for use with tanning devices.
However, you should not remove natural body oils by bathing or showering immediately before tanning. It is better to wait a few hours before taking a shower. Ask a tanning professional about this.
Your hair should also be free of gels, mousse, sprays, or other hair products. As an alternative, you can wrap your hair in a towel or wear a shower cap to keep treated hair away from tanning bed surfaces.
